Despite the cold, damp weather, the communities came together for the service of remembrance to pay respect to all of those who have died in conflict since the First World War.

Holyhead welcomed some of the Heddlu Bach team for 2023, who were chosen to take part in the parade from the Town Hall to the Cenotaph, where they laid a wreath and paid their respects.

Ysgol Gymuned Carreglefn, on November 10, also held a community service ahead of Remembrance Day.
