WEPRE Park will play host to the Connah's Quay Festival this weekend.

The town council-run event will be held at the popular local beauty spot on Sunday, starting at 10am and finishing at 6pm.

Entry into the event is free and there will be a fun dog show, a variety of stalls and a large fun fair, with alcohol on sale.

The Leader:

People are urged to use the council car parks at the old Somerfield site as Wepre Park will likely be very busy all day. The town council is urging people to consider the residents living near to the park, and to not block access for them.

Local football refereeing legend, Brian Purcell, will be receiving an honour from the town council on the day for his services over the years. 

Connah's Quay Town Council chair, councillor Bernie Attridge, said: "I took on the challenge to make it happen the help of our admin assistants in the town council office.

"We will have a parade leaving the Civic Hall at 10.30am to Wepre Park led by our vice chairman Alan Manship. At Wepre we will have a large fun fair, fun dog show, live bands and acts, lots of stalls, ice cream, sand pit for the kids, beer box events serving beer and a Gin and Tonic horse box.

"After not having a festival due to Covid I believe it was the right decision to press ahead and bring our community together in a fun packed day in the jewel in our crown, Wepre Park."

Councillor Alan Manship, who will be officially opening the fair, added: "I am looking forward to welcoming everyone to our great town of Connah's Quay for our annual festival. I see this a great way of showcasing what we have to offer here in the town."
