Rhyl Promenade… an aerial view…

There seems to be quite a cottage industry in North Wales compiling drone video footage of the area. This is the latest from drone pilot Lee Rey.

It gives a great perspective on the beauty of the promenade, and the developments currently taking place.

Thank you for permission to share it Lee…

Rhyl Lifeboat and my cousin, Gerald


April 9th 2017… Special day today as my cousin Gerald’s ashes were scattered at sea off the coast of Rhyl.

A magnificent gesture by his RNLI family brought the boats from Llandudno and Hoylake to the town. There were six coxswains on board and none could remember when three lifeboats and the Rhyl inshore boat had appeared off Rhyl, let alone entered Foryd Harbour. The family were able to accompany the boats out on a fishing vessel. These are some of the photos of the event… you can see some pictures here





How lucky we are to have such a dedicated team of volunteers in our town.
