Soldiers are set to march through the town tomorrow as the Welsh Guards exercise their right to hold a Freedom March.

The Welsh Guards were awarded the Freedom of the County Borough in 2014 at a ceremony held in the town centre. The granting of the Freedom formally recognised the contribution the Welsh Guards have made to the county borough and their relationship with the authority and people of Wrexham.

Tomorrow the Welsh Guards – along with their bayonets fixed and standards flying – will march from the Barracks in Hightown and into the town centre.

The parade will then be inspected and a few words of thanks to the Welsh Guards will be given both to welcome them to Wrexham and for their past service to their country

The Route:

The march will start at the Barracks, Hightown, at 11am and will proceed into town via Kingsmills Road, Salop Road, Yorke Street, Chester Street, Lambpit Street, Queen Street, before entering Queens Square and assembling on Llwyn Isaf Green for 11.30am.

Commenting on the event, Cllr David Griffiths, Armed Forces Champion, said: “This will be quite a spectacle and I know the people of Wrexham will be pleased to welcome the Welsh Guards back to Wrexham.”
