THE mayor of Prestatyn took part in an event held to mark the Offa's Dyke Path National Trail 50th Anniversary.

Cllr Sharon Frobisher, mayor of Prestatyn and Meliden, joined walkers in Prestatyn.

Walkers met at 10am outside the Nova Centre. A coach took participants to Graig Fawr. The trek went back over Prestatyn Hillside before returning to the start/finish of Offa’s Dyke Path.

Refreshments were served and speeches followed.

Cllr Sharon Frobisher spoke briefly about what the National Trail means to Prestatyn and thanked all involved including walking groups and volunteers who have played an important role in helping to maintain and improve the trail over the years.

The Offa’s Dyke Path is a 177 mile (285 Km) long walking trail.

Earlier this year Clare Pillman, chief executive of NRW, said: "Over the last 50 years, the Offa’s Dyke Path, which combines spectacular landscapes and wildlife, has become one of Britain’s best loved walking routes."
