FLINT Festival has returned for another year and organisers say the recent 999 Day, showcasing the areas emeregcny services, has been the best one so far.

This year the event was held on the field overlooking the Flint Castle grounds and draw in hundreds of families throughout the busy Saturday afternoon.

There were demonstrations made by the local emergency services as well as plenty of fun and games for the whole family - including various stalls manned by locals and a huge game of tug-of-war.

The event comes under the banner of Flint Festival, organised by Cllr Michelle Perfect.

She said: "The festival has gotten bigger and better each year and I can't believe one little idea I had has grown to this scale. It is great to see the residents of Flint engaging with each other and enjoying themselves. I think the community as a whole are just awesome and the response has been phenomenal."

Everyone manning a stall or serving food and drinks at the events are doing so as volunteers and all funds raised will go back into the local community and spread equally to help organisations like the RNLI, cadet squad, football clubs and also be put aside to put towards the following years event.
