DENBIGHSHIRE County Council is reassuring communities across the county that the national 'Stay at Home' message in Wales is being communicated to audiences outside of Wales.

Council officials are keen to highlight the importance of staying at home, especially in the run up to the Bank Holiday weekend, and in light of the warm weather which is being predicted over the coming days.

Councillor Tony Thomas, Cabinet Lead Member for Housing and Communities, said: “The Council and its partners have been working closely to reiterate the Welsh Government’s message over recent weeks.

"The vast majority of local residents are adhering to this important message and making a real difference to the efforts to try and protect individuals, communities and the NHS. We thank people for their support.

“Organisations are continuing to use social media and the press to reach those audiences outside of Wales in the effort to persuade them to stay at home, for the time being.

"In light of the differing message in England, there is a bigger push than ever before to make every effort to cascade the Stay at Home message to other parts of the UK.

“We fully recognise that the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a magnet for visitors and once the regulations are eased and visitors are allowed back into our scenic countryside, we will be warmly welcoming people back.

"However, we’re not in that position yet and we all need to do all we can to spread the message about non-essential travel and for people to stay home and save lives”.

Over the weekend, Loggerheads Country Park encountered people blocking its entrance and parking on verges. However, a spokesperson for the park added: "On a positive note on the whole our sites have been very quiet and once again we would like to thank all individuals who are conforming to the Welsh regulations."
