To celebrate The Queen’s 90th Birthday, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales will invite Her Majesty The Queen to light the Principal Beacon on 21st April at Windsor Castle. This will be followed by the lighting of a number of Beacons along the Long Walk, Windsor Great Park, including one at the Copper Horse, and then over 1,000 beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, UK overseas Territories and a Commonwealth Country to celebrate this landmark birthday.

Beacons will be lit at churches, on farms, country parks, village greens and on country estates. Lighthouses, National Trust and English Heritage properties are also taking part.

. Mount Snowdon – Wales (Clwyd and Gwynedd Army Cadet Force)

. Scafell Pike – England (Cumbria Army Cadet Force)

. Slieve Donard – Northern Ireland (2nd NI Battalion Army Cadet Force)

Please join us at St Asaph Parish Church for a celebratory service starting at 8pmthen onto the Common for the lighting of a beacon (a beacon will also be lit at the same time at the top of the Cathedral) and a firework display and, of course, singing Happy Birthday To You.

Have your say on local issues

Denbighshire County Council is asking people in the St Asaph area to have their say on local issues.
In 2011/12 Denbighshire County Council developed a City Plan for St Asaph which identified community needs and priorities for the town. It did not however address the needs and priorities of the smaller rural communities associated with St Asaph. The Council has now agreed to expand the Plan to cover these more rural communities.

Community Councils have been consulted to hear what they considered to be the key issues or priorities for the rural areas associated with St Asaph.
The report summarises those discussions and forms the basis of further consultation for all residents and businesses in Rhuallt, Cefn Meiriadog, Tremeirchion, Cwm, Waen and Trefnant.

Issues highlighted in the report include local facilities, youth provision, public transport, the condition of roads and road safety.
The Council is asking people whether the issues identified are the right ones or whether there are others that need consideration.
Any responses to the consultation can be sent by email to: econ.dev@denbighshire.gov.uk or by post to:- Regeneration, Denbighshire County Council, Caledfryn, Smithfield Road, Denbigh, LL16 3RG. Some hard copies of the report are also available at St Asaph Library.
Alternatively, people can respond via www.denbighshire.gov.uk/consultations
The consultation period runs until Friday 18th October 2013.
