Young members of the West Rhyl Marshalls are set for a busy summer. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Walking in Snowdonia is to be just one of the many activities lined up for the youngsters during the school summer holidays as part of the ‘School’s Out’ programme. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The West Rhyl Marshals was first set up around eight years ago by PC Steve Edwards. Over the years, the children and young people involved have taken part in many local environmental projects including re-planting sand grass on nearby dunes and litter picks. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Marshalls has also proven to be an opportunity for the youngsters to pick up new skills. Along with football and golf sessions, sailing and kayak sessions on the nearby Marine Lake have also previously been offered as a reward for all the hard work that they have undertaken. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“I hope that the young people will have just as much enjoyment from the activities as they have done in previous years,” said PC Steve Edwards, who is based in Rhyl. “The High Sheriff’s Charity Crimebeat has awarded £500 to the programme – money which will which help towards transport and refreshments. I’d like to thank them for their continued support and also to other organisations and businesses who support us and the valuable work that is being undertaken by children and young people of Rhyl.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The West Rhyl Marshals are active in the community throughout the year and have been recognised over the years for the valuable work undertaken. Some of the recognition the Marshals have received a number of awards from Keep Wales Tidy and the local authority. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
