The awards were given to various community members – businesses, voluntary workers, arts and sport groups, etc – for their work in helping to put the town’s good deeds in the spotlight.

The Gala included acts and entertainers from the local area, including “The Johnson Voices”, who have featured on “Britain’s Got Talent”, getting rave revues; and local rock band “Contagious”

The Mayor’s special award came as a surprise to Coxswain Martin Jones, as he was called up to the stage to receive the glass trophy from the Mayor. Cllr Tasker said “the town of Rhyl should be proud of their “local heroes” who are willing to go to sea in their Offshore and Inshore lifeboats when others are seeking shelter” .

Coxswain Jones replied by saying ” I am delighted to receive the award, but this is really an award for the crew. We have a really good gang at the station, and are happy to be a part of the community at Rhyl. The crew spend a great deal of time and effort to look after the town and it’s visitors, our fundraisers also do a great job raising the necessary funds to keep the station going”.
