Llandudno RNLI Volunteers on Remembrance Sunday

Graham explained that ‘Remembrance Sunday is a very significant day in our annual calendar, in normal times we would proudly be on parade at the Cenotaph. Because of the national restrictions and the need for safety we have this time come together safely at our boathouse. For us, the collective act of remembering the fallen is an especially important thing for us to do.’
