RHYL and Prestatyn commemorated the centenary of the First World War this weekend with a series of events.
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.
