Last Saturday evening there was a buffet party at St. Mary’s Church, Wellington Road. The event was organised by Mrs. Geraldine Griffiths of John Street to honour the work of volunteers in the community; it was prompted by news that the Abbey Street Centre (above) is to close at the end of this month.

The centre at 17a Abbey Street has been operated by the not-for-profit West Rhyl Community Company Ltd for quite a few years. It has been one of the few neighbourhood advice, help and activity centres in Rhyl West which, by some measurements, is the most deprived ward in Wales.

We are a poor nation indeed if we can’t afford places like this.
