REMEMBRANCE SERVICE 2019


Another wonderful Remembrance Service this year with respectful attendance by members of the Heritage Society; Rehoboth Chapel; staff, pupils and parents of Five Roads School; local dignitaries and especially the families of the soldiers and fallen of the Boer War and both World Wars.


In his message to the children of Five Roads School, the Rev. David Jones demonstrated the various aids and tools for remembering, alluding of course to the importance of why we commemorate the sacrifice made by our fallen heroes.



As ever, the children were in glorious voice with renditions in both Welsh and English which was very warmly received by the congregation.



Bryan Hitchman, Chairman of the Heritage Society reminded us of the sometimes overlooked contribution, and sacrifice made by women in both World Wars. Their participation was the catalyst in the monumental changes to the social structure of our society.

The congregation also were in fine voice, accompanied by Mrs. Ffion Morgan, organist of Horeb Chapel.



The weather this year was in a clement mood and we concluded the Service with the laying of wreaths outside on our War Memorial.
