AN inaugural community event held by Rhyl and District Rugby Club has been hailed as a tremendous success.

The Dragons’ Mayday Mayhem extravaganza saw a large crowd descend on their impressive facility at Ty Newydd, with a host of activities taking place throughout.

A number pf representatives from North Wales Police were in attendance, showing children round the vehicles, with the armed response team attracting an enormous amount of interest.

The Welsh Rugby Union also lent their support to the celebration by providing a bungee run and inflatable area that also proved to be incredibly popular with those in attendance, and another welcome addition to the attractions was a fun golf area.

Officials from Rhyl’s hockey and netball clubs were also on hand to answer any questions members of the public may have had, and the Air Ambulance service had their mascot present collecting donations for the entirety of the event.

The Dragons’ U7 side showed their tremendous potential against sides from the region in a special round-robin tournament, before the newly formed women’s team took centre stage for a game of touch rugby against present and veteran Rhyl players.

A team comprising of senior and second team squad members turned out for Rhyl and District in the showpiece event that saw them take on a North Wales Police XV, which saw the Dragons’ emerge victorious 45-7 after a thoroughly entertaining affair.

A Rhyl and District spokesman, said: “Credit must go to all the organisations that turned out and to the organisers who are already stating this will be an annual event.”
