ICY conditions, strong winds and snow flurries didn't deter town councillors in Rhyl from flying the flag for Wales.

Despite much of the country being hit by Siberian temperatures and deluged by snow last week, Rhyl Town Council were determined that action planned - to mark St David's Day - would go ahead.

Accompanied by singers and musicians from the Ghostbuskers Community Choir, councillors took to the high street to hand out Welsh flags and daffodils to shoppers.

Cllr Alan James, Rhyl Mayor, said: "A warm welcome always awaits Rhyl visitors and shoppers and, despite the country being hit by a severe weather front, we were determined St David’s Day should be no different.

"The choir was in fine voice and I think the sing-along and flags created some warm feelings among shoppers on what was a bitterly cold day."

St David’s marks the start of the town council’s 2018 events programme with stilt walkers in town on Easter Monday and larger community events planned
