 The High Sheriff of Clwyd Henry Dixon visited the Action Day and said:” It was marvellous to see such a willing and energetic team working together on Princes Street.”

 “The High Sheriff’s charity, Crimebeat, is focused on supporting projects and communities who want to improve their local environment, involve the young and help reduce crime.

 “The activity on Princes Street is an excellent example of the type of projects we like to support and I must congratulate all concerned, and the 20 plus young volunteers from the West Rhyl Marshalls in particular, for their enthusiasm and approach.

 “It was also most encouraging to see the synergy between the various agencies involved, helping to strengthen local communities, address issues and thus reduce the risk from crime, anti social behaviour and the risk of fire.”

 Inspector Devonport added: “North Wales Police are committed to reduce the opportunity for crime and anti social behaviour by encouraging the local community to take pride in Rhyl as a great place to live and a popular visitor destination. I am very grateful to the High Sheriff and his Crimebeat Fund for the financila investment made to the West Rhyl Marshalls initaitive which allowed them to be a valuable part of this initiative. ”
