Gail was delighted to have Jason join her this year. It is the 13th year that Gail has attended the Service and laid a wreath in memory of the service men and women who serve and lose their lives to protect us.
Sadly Henry West was not well enough to attend this year, however, Mark Roberts, Caerleon Air Cadets, ensured it was a success. All the services, air cadets, scouts, girl guides, police and Newport City Council were represented as well as many members of the public lining the streets and laying wreaths, too. The standard bearers were very impressive as they marched behind the excellent band and we were very fortunate again this year to have David Jones playing the bugle so wonderfully, as always.
St Cadoc’s church led very moving services in the Memorial Garden and in the church, which hundreds attended, remembering all those who died or were injured in World War 1 and World War 11 particularly, including for many of us, family and friends.
Thanks to everyone who helped to organise this special event and who took part on Remembrance Day, it is certainly appreciated.
Councillor Gail Giles
