Friends of Chirk Station hosted a First World War commemoration event to mark 100 years since the end of the conflict.

The event also marked a century of the Royal Air Force (RAF) that was formed towards the end of the Great War in April 1918.

A short 20-minute event, supported by Susan Elan Jones MP and Ken Skates AM, took place on platform two on Saturday, October 27.

There was a short parade from the station car park by the Chirk Air Cadets 856 Sqn, before Yvonne Pryce, Curate for Chirk, lead those in attendance in a two-minute silence.

Those at the event then proceeded to Chirk Parish Hall where there were light refreshments on offer.

Chirk station volunteer Christine Ashford said: “The event went well and was very well supported both at the station and at the refreshments afterwards in the parish hall.

“It was a very moving occasion that truly brought our community together to commemorate and give thanks to all those young men from Chirk who gave their lives for the freedom we all enjoy today.

“It is very important that we remember their ultimate sacrifice.”
