PRESTATYN’S High Street hosted a special event yesterday (June 8) to celebrate the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

Organised by Prestatyn Town Council, the celebrations took place between 12pm and 7.30pm.

The event saw live music, food, drinks and craft stalls, and a book scavenger hunt, alongside other games such as a sketch and draw.

Vintage military vehicles, including some from the WWII era, adorned the high street.

Prestatyn Mayor Cllr Adrian West, deputy Mayor Carol Holliday and Cllr Bob Murray were in attendance.

After the event, a spokesperson for Prestatyn Town Council said: “Thank you to all the businesses who were involved in the ration book scavenger hunt, stallholders, musicians and residents who attended Prestatyn Town Councils event and joined us to commemorate D-Day.

“We will remember them.”

The largest seaborne invasion in history, D-Day took place on June 6, 1944 and marks the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II.

This was the start of the Allied operations which would ultimately liberate Western Europe from Nazi Germany occupation.
