The ceremony was attended by senior councillors as well as local school children and representatives from the British Legion, who joined in laying flowers to honor the brave soldiers who fought during the historic event.

The ceremony was live streamed and can be viewed below.

The Town Council wanted to ensure that the exact date of the D-Day landings was marked in a meaningful way.

As such, they have planned a larger D-Day memorial event scheduled for tomorrow at 5pm in Dolerw Park. Tomorrow's event promises to be a fitting tribute to the sacrifices made by those who participated in the D-Day landings, with 1940s-inspired performances adding to the atmosphere of remembrance and gratitude for their service.
