Beacon of Light to shine from top of St Giles tower this weekend

A Beacon of Light will be lit at the top of St Giles tower this weekend as part of Wrexham’s Remembrance Sunday commemorations.

Wrexham will taking part in the nationwide event on Sunday November 11, which will see over 1,000 beacons lit throughout the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories.

The Beacons symbolise the end to the darkness of war and a return to the light of peace and will pay tribute to the millions killed or wounded in battle, and those on the home front who struggled amidst pain and loss to help ensure freedom survived.

The Beacon of Light in Wrexham will be lit at 7pm on the top of St Giles Church Tower, in the town centre and members of the public are warmly invited to attend this event.

An Act of Commemoration will be held at 6 pm in St Giles Church which will feature the Rhos Orpheus Choir and an opportunity to join in with music, words and silence to reflect on the events of 100 years ago.

Everyone is welcome to attend this service just before the beacon lighting.
