Silver Band plays at VE Day event


* Llangollen Silver Band members with veterans at the
VE Day anniversary celebration in Bellevue Park, Wrexham.

Llangollen Silver Band were delighted to be invited to play at Bellevue Park, Wrexham last Monday  as part of the VE Day 70th anniversary celebrations.

On a beautiful Bank Holiday afternoon the band began by accompanying hymns in a service led by the Rev Gerald Griffiths.

Tributes were also paid by Councillor David Griffiths and the chairperson of the Friends of Bellevue Park, Barbara Jones.

Attending the service were a number of World War Two veterans and all in attendance observed a two-minute silence to remember the fallen.

The band's principal cornet player, Mia Thomas, ended the silence with the haunting call of The Last Post.

Following the service the band performed a varied musical programme whilst the veterans and audience enjoyed a tea party in the sunshine.
