July is a blooming good time in Prestatyn.
This July our Grow Wild Voluntary Arts Week and Prestatyn Dementia Friendly community spaces are included in our towns RHS Wales in Bloom entry.
The RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood campaign supports local community groups in cleaning up and greening up their immediate local environment.
Whether that’s the street they live in, or a small patch of communal land needing a revamp.

During July and the coming months we are taking part in #lovelivelocal an exciting new campaign from Denbighshire County Council, Economic Development Department.
Encouraging people to use their local shops and services. Also to share their positive experiences of Denbighshire as a fantastic place to shop.

The campaign encourages consumers to use the hashtag #LoveLiveLocal to promote businesses in Denbighshire across all social networking platforms.
