Rhyl saw families enjoy the sunshine at Marine Lake with entertainment such as the bomb disposal team, martial arts, dance and boat demonstrations, a visit from the vice lord lieutenant, a bouncy castle a raffle and more, as well as a dedication at 1pm. A service was also held in St Thomas’ Church on Sunday, August 3 to commemorate the fallen.

Prestatyn saw thousands show for the Trench and Dugout re-enactment experience where Prestatyn High Street was temporarily turned into a First World War museum, allowing for a first hand experience of life on the front line.

The commemoration will continue tonight (August 4) with Lights Out from 10pm to 11pm and a commemorative service held at St Michael's Church, Abergele at 7pm.
