County council announces arrangements for Queen's funeral bank holiday

* The kiosk at Riverside Park will be closed for the Queen's funeral bank holiday on Monday.  

Denbighshire County Council will be observing the national Bank Holiday arrangements being put in place on Monday, September 19 – the day of the State Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II – as a mark of respect.

This means that the majority of council services will be closed on the Monday, re-opening as normal on Tuesday, September 20.

Buildings: All public buildings, including schools, libraries, one stop shops and recycling centres will be closed, as well as facilities operated by Denbighshire Leisure Ltd.

Countryside Service: Loggerheads and Moel Famau Country Parks will be open as normal. The Countryside Centre at Loggerheads and the Shepherds Hut at Moel Famau, however, will be closed. The grounds of Plas Newydd, Llangollen will be open but the House and Tea Rooms will be closed. The kiosk in Riverside Park in Llangollen will also be closed.

Waste and refuse collection: Collections from households on Monday will start earlier than usual at around 5.30am. Residents are asked to make sure that refuse is presented on Sunday evening, ready for the early morning start on Monday. The Council will collect as many bins as possible but will stop work before the funeral begins, as a mark of respect.

Any outstanding bins not collected will be picked up over the following days, therefore residents are asked to leave their containers out in a safe place until they have been emptied.

Collections due on Tuesday, September 20 through until Friday, September 23 remain unchanged.

Highway works: All highway works (apart from any emergency works) will be suspended on Monday.

Public transport: Buses will operate a Sunday/Bank Holiday Service. Timetables can be found on the website:

Care services: Essential care services will continue to be provided by the council and its partners.

Customer Services: The council’s main telephone line: 01824 706000 will be closed on the Bank Holiday.

In the event of emergencies or urgent calls only, people should call 0345 053 3116; for Adults Social Services call 0300 456 1000 or for Children’s Social Services, please call 01824 712200.

People will still be able to access information on this website.

The council says it would like to thank people in advance for their co-operation and understanding over the Bank Holiday closures.
