GALLERY: St David's Day


Rhian Waller

THE HIGH street was alive with red, white and green in honour of St David.

Hundreds of pupils and Prestatyn residents crowded the town centre last Thursday for a bonanza of Welsh song and pageantry.

Neil Allum, secretary of the new Prestatyn Forum which organised the event, said: “May we extend a huge thank you and well done to all the pupils from our primary schools who came together in Prestatyn High Street to celebrate St David’s Day for the first time last week.

“The local community turned out in large numbers to support the children who were all first class ambassadors for their schools. As I stood looking at the hundreds of people in the crowd I could see more than one parent with a tear in the eye as everyone sang the Welsh National Anthem.”

The event, which aimed to highlight the Welsh language in Prestatyn, was organised by the Prestatyn Area Business and Community Forum and featured youngsters from Ysgol Bodnant, Ysgol y Llys, Ysgol Clawdd Offa and Ysgol Penmorfa.
