Rhyl pub crawl to raise funds for flood victims


Matt Jones

A THIRD Rhyl pub crawl is being organised in a bid to give the town’s night-time economy a boost and raise funds for the flood victims’ fund.

A Facebook group has been set up by life-long Rhyl resident Andrea Smith to encourage revellers to have a night out in the town on March 8.

The former Blessed Edward Jones High School pupil said: “The idea came from reminiscing with my sisters about the nights we used to have in Rhyl and that we very rarely even go out in Rhyl anymore.

“Then the idea came about for a reunion for everyone who used to go out in the 80s and 90s, not one particular school in one particular club, just everyone in all the pubs and the easiest way to do it seemed to be through Facebook.

“This next one came about from so many people asking me for another one.

“The last two had almost every pub in Rhyl packed full of people with smiling faces.”

This year collections will be taken for the fund set up for victims of December’s floods.

Rhyl mayor, councillor Andy Rutherford, said: “It promises to be a great night, it was last time.

“It will be a much valued boost to the night-time economy and will also show that Rhyl is still a great place to go out to at night.

“The organisers have agreed to use the evening as an opportunity to raise money for the flood appeal fund.

“I would like to thank everyone concerned in organising this event and I am really looking forward to it.”

Andrea, 42, added: “The first one, the atmosphere was amazing, such a happy night, the second one was almost as good, but a huge down pour put a bit of a dampener on the night.

“I’ll be doing my best to get around as many pubs as I can, a proper pub crawl.”
