Great War centenary commemoration service

Date: 18/10/2018

A short public service will be held at Caernarfon Castle on Remembrance Sunday, 11 November 2018, at 2.30pm to mark the centenary of the end of the Great War.

During the service, the ashes of poppies laid at the Great War Memorial Garden between 7 July and 20 November 2016, will be scattered on the site of the garden.

The garden was opened by the Lord Lieutenant of Gwynedd, Mr Edmund S Bailey and was set up with the support of Gwynedd Council, the Museum of Welsh Fusiliers in the castle and Cadw. Volunteers from the Caernarfon Veterans Society cared for the garden.

During the summer of 2016, more than 12,000 poppy crosses were placed at the garden and more than £70,000 was raised for the Poppy Appeal.

All are welcomed to the service.
