St David’s Day Parade

by Gill Rider of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints

It was lovely to get together with members of other faiths and march for St David’s Day under our Interfaith Council Banner. Everyone was really friendly as I didn’t know anyone and I appreciated that. We assembled in front of the city hall, where there were some amazing creations of dragons and daffodils. We then walked from the City Hall, under the main road and into Queen St, where we did a loop and then down Working St to The Hayes. There was a marvellous band playing as we walked and the whole parade had a very festive air. Lots of people were clapping and waving Welsh flags. Once we were assembled in the Hayes we all joined in a hearty rendition of the National Anthem. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and was grateful to be with other good people from other faith communities.
