THE busy programme for a Vale of Clwyd festival is continuing.

Following hot on the heels of the Urdd Eisteddfod in the town is the Denbigh Midsummer Festival and it will continue until June 19.

Throughout the festival, a forget me not hunt is being held.

People need to go for a walk along the High Street, Vale Street, Back Row and Bridge Street to find 38 forget me nots in shop windows!

Competitors have a chance to win a £50 voucher to spend in a local shop and entrants need to write down the name of each shop and take it to the Carpet Emporium, 25 High Street, Denbigh or email it to by Monday, June 20.

A winner will be announced at Denbigh Carnvial on June 25.
