PLANS for this year's Remembrance commemorations have been confirmed.

This year's events will be different to previous year after four armed forces veterans got together to organise a revamped Remembrance Sunday.

Paul Todd, Paul Galsworthy, Kevin Halborg and Kirk Chandler planned this year's Remembrance Sunday events in a bid to make it appeal to everyone in Penarth.

On Sunday, November 12 the day will start with a church service at All Saints Church in Victoria Road at 10.55am.

Afterwards there will be pre march refreshments at the church hall before the parade begins at 1.30pm

The parade will proceed to the Garden of Remembrance in Alexandra Park where wreaths will be laid, the last post sounded, and a two minutes silence in memory of the fallen observed.

The parade will then proceed up Windsor Terrace and down Windsor Road to the Ex Servicemen’s Club where the parade will be stood down.

There will be entertainment in the club with a buffet and live music from the Lewis Merthyr Band.

Richard James, chairman of the Penarth branch of the Royal British Legion said the group will be raising funds to enable their vital work to continue to be carried out this year and in the future.

"The Legion’s support extends to all ages from young children of service personnel to the elderly veterans," he said.

"The need is always great and people's generosity regarding the Poppy Appeal is much appreciated by both those who receive help and those who give a considerable amount of their free time to enable this help to be given."

A short ceremony to observe Armistice Day will take place at the junction of Windsor Road and Glebe Street between 10.55am and 11.10am on Saturday, November 11.

At 11.00am, a two minutes silence will be observed.

Following this, a wreath will be laid at the town war memorial inside St Augustine’s Church.
