A SERIES of banners including one dedicated to the soldiers of the First World War have been repeatedly pulled from a primary school fence and left on the floor.

The three banners were erected near Ysgol Frongoch by Denbigh Events Group (DEG) ahead of upcoming events in the town; a summer festival, a children’s after school club and the First World War's 100th anniversary commemorations later this year.

The symbolic WWI banner, which features images of troops, a poppy and the words ‘Never to be Forgotten’ in Welsh and English has been pulled from its hanging along with the other two banners three times over a six-week period.

The mayor of Denbigh, Catherine Jones, who also runs the Denbigh Events Group, said: “The banners were pulled down and left with just one cable tie still in place. They were left looking unsightly which is bad for the town.

“The WW1 banner was also pulled down which is very disrespectful in my opinion.”

The banners had been purchased by the DEG for a total of £300 gathered at community fundraising events.

Cllr Jones added: “This is the third time we have had to reattach them. It is very disappointing.

“I want people to be aware that this is not acceptable.”
