Commonwealth Games Queen's Baton visits not one, but two Countryside Sites 

Glan Morfa / Marsh Tracks, Rhyl and Moel Famau Country Park, were two fantastic countryside sites that hosted the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Queen's Baton Relay.

The Baton visit recognises the contribution the countryside and the great outdoors makes to people's health and well being and in keeping people active.
"It was fantastic to see those who have dedicated so much time voluntarily to conserve the countryside, promote access and enable others to enjoy the outdoors, being honored as baton bearers. A big thank you to everyone who helps to keep these places special, but also encourage people to enjoy them, it is a pleasure to work with you."

A Roman Day, part of the Prestatyn Walking Festival - blessed with fabulous weather - gave people the opportunity to find out about the Roman history of the town. During the day a Roman soldier escorted 400 visitors to the ruins of the Roman Bath House where Archaeologist Fiona Gale gave them a tour of the site and showed some of the excavated artifacts; Roman pottery from France, Tiles made at Holt on the River Dee and beautiful glass beads .

LOGGFEST 2014 was a great success with 100s of people enjoying the stalls, food, music and the great free family activities, many provided by the North East Wales Biodiversity Team. Next years festival will be even better - save the date 5th - 7th June 2015.

Venture into the Hawk's Nest
A new play area at Coed Moel Famau  will bring out the adventureer in young people. This is added to an imressive array of activities for all the family. Try the Access for All Trail, Animal Puzzel Trail, Numeracy Trail for schools or visit the Arboretum and see all of the UK's tree species.

Night at the Museum
Ruthin Gaol came 3rd in the Museum's at Night competition for North Wales. Armed with their teddies, curious children arrived in their pyjamas to listen to Bedtimes Stories in the gaol.  The event was fully booked and everyone loved it. Keep an eye out for next years event if you are brave enough.....

While we're loving the glorious sunshine now, the wet weather certainly helped the Gaol at half term. "On the Wednesday we had the most admissions we had ever had in one day.  We had never seen the gaol so busy."
