THE second weekend of November means one thing – Remembrance Sunday – the time of the year when we pay our respects to those who fought for, and those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Remembrance Sunday falls on November 12 but there are services and parades across Cardiff and the Vale across the week.

This list will be updated throughout the week.
