County thanks people for staying away from beauty spots

* Horseshoe Falls remains closed.

Denbighshire County Council has thanked residents for their "continued patience" during the closure of the county’s country parks.

Beauty spots in Denbighshire, including Horseshoe Fall in Llangollen, Loggerheads Country Park and Moel Famau Country Park remain closed under Welsh Government guidance.

The council monitored the position over the weekend, supported by North Wales Police and Natural Resources Wales, and says very few visitors were reported at these locations.

Cllr Tony Thomas, the council’s Lead Member for Housing and Communities, said: “Again over the weekend very few visitors were reported around our beauty spots and I would like to thank residents for their continued patience.

“We fully understand these areas are important to many people, but in Wales travel is still restricted to journeys generally within five miles from your home and we know a large proportion of our visitors travel significantly more than that.

“Therefore it is crucial these sites remain closed at this time in order to protect our communities from the spread of the virus.

“In the meantime, we are working with our partners to make sure when the time is right we can welcome everyone back to the parks in a way that ensures the safety of our visitors, staff and local communities.”
