The worst of the flood may be over but there is still a lot to be done to bring things back to normality for the people affected by the flood.  As the clean up operation begins Rhyl Town Mayor, Andy Rutherford has swiftly organised the Mayor’s Flood Appeal, every penny donated to this appeal will go to the flood victims to help where needed, we must stress please do not give any money donations to any other collection appeals.

A meeting has been held today in Rhyl Town Council offices regarding the future of the Appeal Fund.

A decision was made to follow the model used successfully in St Asaph. As a result a new company with charitable status is to be formed called Rhyl Flood Relief Ltd. Once this charitable company is registered with the relevant authorities the Town Council will relinquish all control of the Appeal Fund.

There are 9 Trustees of the new charitable company. All of these Trustees are giving their time voluntarily. All 9 are adamant that 100% of the funds raised are to go to the people affected by the floods.

The Trustees are:

Reverend Andy Grimwood
Ashley Hughes
Alan James
Gareth Nickels
Steve Ratcliffe
John Roberts
Andy Rutherford
Dave Simmons
Reverend Stan Walker
