AS part of its nationwide journey to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, the Queen’s Baton Relay will be visiting Rhyl and the North Wales area.

The relay will travel across the country from May 24 and the visit is designed to build support for the Welsh athletes who will be travelling to Glasgow for the July games.

A host of activities are planned throughout Denbighshire to mark the special event.

Councillor Huw Jones, Cabinet Lead Member for Leisure, said: “It is a true honour for Denbighshire to host a leg of the relay and we hope that the spotlight of the relay will help us showcase what the county has to offer from a leisure perspective.

"Having national events like this really increases interest in sport and well-being in general and we need to make the best use of this opportunity.”

The relay will take in the spectacular new bridge at Rhyl before finishing the Denbighshire leg in Llandegla on May 30.

Jamie Groves, Head of Communication, Marketing and Leisure said: “Whilst the spotlight is firmly on the leisure aspect of the event, it also provides Denbighshire with a firm opportunity to promote its facilities, attractions and outstanding scenery.

“They are the potential tourists of the future and we want them to see that Denbighshire is a special, exciting and vibrant place to visit.”
