A MEMORIAL service took place outside the Hightown Barracks on Remembrance Sunday. 

As the whole of the UK came together to remember those who have fallen, a memorial service took place outside the barracks in Wrexham

The service was held at the memorial garden of the Royal Welch Fusilier statue, which was unveiled this year. 

The project was the brainchild of Hermitage councillor Graham Rogers, who worked tirelessly to ensure the statue came to fruition. 

And on Sunday, members of the community came together to remember.


Cllr Rogers said: "I would like to thank those who did attend for braving the weather.

"My thanks go to Lieutenant Colonel Nick Lock for the laying of a wreath and saying a few words, also for organising the cadets who laid a wreath, Cllr Brian Cameron (Whitegate Ward), Linda Subacchi and Rebecca Ap Gwyn representing Offa Community Council and myself.

"The last post was played by a member of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers and Ray Jones a former Royal Welsh Fusilier and member of the Wrexham Comrades Branch, kindly took photographs of the occasion, thank you Ray.

"On behalf of myself, we will remember them, the fallen heroes, their contribution to two World Wars and the conflicts the battalion have been involved in."
