      This year’s challenge is to create a Dragon, using some recycled materials.
      As the Prestatyn Flower Show celebrates its 25th year we have asked that the Dragon models reflect, in some way, this momentous occasion.

      Bodnant Community School, Ysgol Clawdd Offa, Ysgol Melyd and Ysgol Y Llys have all entered the competition which is kindly sponsored by Mr Paul Raven, Raven Fire and Security.
      Winning entries will be displayed in the town throughout the summer.
