Jamie Groves, from the council, says: 'The event held at Ruthin Leisure Centre [last] Saturday was very well attended. Staff arranging the event have said they felt humbled to offer some kind of practical support that would entertain the children and provide them with a bit of normality.'

It's also meant 'to provide their parents with some time to carry out essential jobs. We hope that people affected by flooding in St Asaph take up this opportunity, but to also visit the Advice Centre at the library for any further information and support they require.'
