Hannah Roberts, a teacher at Ysgol Plas Coch, believes getting local children involved in St David's Day is important as it promotes Welsh culture. 

She said: "We have done Welsh activities this morning and really focused on the importance of celebrating Welsh culture.

"It has been amazing for them to meet everyone and singing songs as they walked from the school. They have been buzzing."

The parade featured schools, playgroups, organisations and even a very proud Welsh pup.

Fifi the dog has been walking the St David's Day parade in Wrexham for the last 11 years and likes nothing better than getting to wear her costume. 

According to her owner, when the parade didn't go ahead in 2021 due to the pandemic Fifi still wore her costume to walk around Wrexham centre.
