RHYL residents are set to receive a special honour to mark HM The Queen’s 90th birthday.
Town residents who reach their own milestone 90th birthday this year are to be given a gift by Rhyl Town Council.
Rhyl Mayor Cllr Barry Mellor said: “The Queen’s birthday is being marked up and down the country. Some of our Rhyl residents will also turn 90 this year and we wanted to give them a present to mark the occasion.”
Those turning 90, or who have already turned 90, during 2016 will receive a special HM The Queen commemorative coin and Rhyl town pin badge.
Residents celebrating the big birthday can put themselves forward or can be nominated by friends or family.
“The birthday honour is open to any Rhyl citizen who has turned, or will turn 90, this year, ” added Cllr Mellor.
The gift is part of a series of celebrations lined up in the town to mark HM The Queen’s birthday.
A Royal event is also planned which includes the world’s smallest cinema, a human jukebox, royal train, street games and treasure hunt in various Rhyl locations. The event will be held on Saturday June 11, 11am – 4pm.
