Council honoured at County Show

Published: 21/08/2023

Climate change was on the agenda at this year’s Denbigh and Flint Show.

Flintshire County Council and Denbighshire County Council joined forces and hosted a climate change stand at the popular event on August 17.

Staff encouraged people to get involved in different activities to engage the whole family in the climate change discussion.

Young people talked about their impact on the planet and were rewarded for taking carbon pledges with wooden ‘climate champion’ medals. There were fun games, bucket surveys and chances to learn about renewable energy.

The stand, which featured beautiful floral displays, upcycled planters and a living wall thanks to Tri-Ffordd horticulture project, also received a rosette in the non-agricultural stand category.

Councillor Dennis Hutchinson, vice chair of Flintshire County Council, said: “It is great to see both councils continuing to strengthen their work together, and engaging residents on such an important topic. We are delighted the show judges recognised our efforts in delivering this.”
