The service, a traditional way of asking God’s guidance for the mayor and Town Council for the forthcoming year, took place on Sunday, July 17.

A procession from the Memorial Hall to St Michael and All Angels Church in Glyn y Marl Road, Llandudno Junction was led by macebearer Ray Lingwood, mayor of Conwy Cllr Pat Hart and Rev Peter Walker, the mayor’s chaplain.

Following the parade – during which the mayor was also joined by scouts, guides, cubs, brownies as well as mayors from across North Wales – The divine Civic Sunday service took place at 11am.

Cllr Hart said: “It was wonderful – I was so proud because I’m a Junction girl, I wanted to bring something back to my patch.

"I couldn’t believe how lovely it was. I’m still on a high.”

Cllr Hart said she was also very pleased that Stan Roberts from Maelgwyn choir attended to sing, as did pupils of Ysgol Aberconwy and Ysgol Aberconwy head of music Andrew Umpleby played the organ.
