RHOS on Sea Rotary's 24th Tree of Lights ceremony takes place this Sunday (November 26). 

There are three ceremonies this year - in Rhos on Sea, Llangefni and at Llandudno’s St David’s Hospice.

St David's Hospice work with Rhos on Sea Rotary Club to offer the Tree of Lights event in Rhos on Sea and the Llangefni Rotary Club for the Llangefni event. 

Tree of Lights events allow people to come together to remember loved ones that have died, whether at St David's Hospice in Llandudno or Anglesey or not.

Ahead of Sunday, Geoff Price, of Rhos on Sea Rotary, said: "We particularly wanted to get the message across to the public this year, that they should gather on the Lower Promenade rather than around the tree.

"The top road above the Cayley promenade will not be closed to traffic and we are concerned about the safety of any crowds gathering there and spilling out onto the road, which will be carrying two way traffic.

"The lower road along the promenade, which is already one way, will be closed to traffic so people will be able to congregate there and less able people will be able to park.

"We will be providing a large number of stewards to assist the crowds including some around the tree to direct them to the Lower Promenade."


Rhian Jacobs, event manger for St David’s, said: “The Tree of Lights events are very special to so many people in our community. This year we are pleased to be able to offer an additional event at our Llandudno hospice. Once again we will be working with the Rotary clubs to offer Tree of Lights events in Rhos on Sea and Llangefni.

“Each event will give people the opportunity to remember their loved ones, and if they wish they can dedicate a light on our trees to them."
