LANDMARKS throughout Denbighshire were lit up last night to mark one year since the first national Covid-19 lockdown.

Sites across North Wales from bridges to castles were glowing yellow as the country reflected on a year of loss and sacrifice caused by the pandemic.

A minute's silence was held at 12pm to mark the day, with a doorstep vigil at 8pm. The colour yellow chosen for the light display was picked to acknowledge the fact that it was spring time when the pandemic first arrived.

The initiative was spearheaded by Marie Curie, but more than 110 organisations were involved in total, including British Red Cross, the Jo Cox Foundation, The Scouts and Together.

In Denbighshire, Denbigh Town FC switched on their floodlights in remembrance at 8pm and ASG Entertainments were on hand to help turn Llangollen's Castell Dinas Bran and the Jubilee Tower at Moel Famau yellow for the cause.

ORB Sound and Lighting also did their bit by lighting up the Llangollen Pavilion and Llangollen Town Hall, as well as a little further afield with the Nightingale House Hospice in Wrexham.

Other landmarks lit up throughout North Wales included the Rainbow Bridge on the A55, Caernarfon Castle, the Menai Suspension Bridge, Flint Castle, the Rhyl Sky Tower and Venue Cymru.
