ORGANISERS looking to brighten up Llandudno with the national flower have hit their 9,000-bulb mark.
The Llandudno Daffodil Capital of Wales initiative filled in further notches to its Daffometer, with businesses and townspeople having donated more than 9,000 bulbs since the campaign started.
Former DJ and Olympic torch bearer Ian Turner was invited to fill in the Daffometer.
The two Daffodil Girls - 9-year-old Nicol Thompson and younger sister Katie Thompson, 8 - joined Mr Turner for the event, having spent the week delivering certificates to businesses who have supported the daffodil campaign.
Deborah Thompson, vice-chair of the initiative, said: “We invited Ian to colour in the daffometer because of everything he stands for: his involvement with local organisations and charities and his love of our beautiful town.”
She added the event had been made an “extra-special occasion” due to Mr Turner bringing his Olympic torch.
Mr Turner said: “It was a pleasure to support those who strive to brighten our daily lives with such beauty and colour, and in so doing, helping to attract more visitors to our wonderful town. It’s great that the Olympic Legacy is now a part of the Llandudno – Daffodil Capital of Wales initiative.”
Organisers hope that the initiative will reach a target of 50,000 bulbs by the end of its first year.
