Shining a light for those who lost their lives to Covid-19

Denbighshire Leisure Ltd lights Rhyl attractions yellow to recognise those who lost their lives to Covid 19.

On Tuesday 23rd March, one year since the first national lockdown began, Denbighshire Leisure Ltd will light Rhyl promenade in yellow to recognise those who lost their lives to Covid 19.

Alongside other local and national landmarks, Rhyl’s Sky Tower, 1891 Restaurant, Rhyl Pavilion Theatre, and beach shelters will all turn yellow, in support of the COVID-19 Families Wales group, part of COVID-19 Families UK.

Jamie Groves, Managing Director of Denbighshire Leisure Ltd, said: “So many families have been devastated by the loss of loved ones as a result of the pandemic.  By lighting up our attractions on this difficult anniversary, we are sending out a message of condolence and of support to everyone across the whole of Wales, but particularly in Denbighshire, who has been affected by Covid 19.”

Councillor Bobby Feeley, Denbighshire County Council’s Lead Member for Well-being and Independence, said: “We are proud to be lighting up Denbighshire Leisure Ltd attractions in memory of all those who lost their lives in the last year because if the pandemic. The last 12 months have been difficult for all our residents and we would like to show our support for those who have lost loved ones to Covid-19.”

The group are also working in conjunction with Marie Curie to support their Day of Reflection which involves a minute’s silence at 12 noon and shining a light at 8pm to remember all those who have lost their lives during the pandemic.
