Rhos Youth Council visit Airbase

Children and Community Councillors from the Wrexham South area aid a special visit to the North Wales Police Airbase in Rhuddlan last week to learn about the work of the helicopter.

Youngsters and councillors from Rhos had the opportunity of meeting some of the officers and seeing the force helicopter up close and personal.

Organised by Police Community Support Officer Sofia Iftikar and Council Clerk Wendy Owens, the youngsters, who are all members of the Rhos Youth Council, spoke to some of the officers based at the Unit as well being given the opportunity to see the police dogs being trained.

“I arranged the day because it was something they all expressed and interest in,” said PCSO Iftikar.

“Unfortunately, shortly after we arrived at the airbase, the helicopter was called to an incident, but luckily for us, some of the police dogs were in training, so the youngsters got the opportunity to see them being put through their paces.

“Hopefully they all enjoyed seeing the airbase and speaking to some of the officers and enjoyed learning about the work of the emergency services.”
