Clear newspaper and photo evidence shows the warmth of welcome to Belgian refugees in Rhyl 1914. “We doubt whether, in the history of Rhyl, such a huge demonstration depicting sincerity and enthusiasm has been witnessed. For days the event had been patiently awaited, and the house on the East Parade set up as a home for the homeless, was literally besieged with enquirers anxious to learn when the party were expected, and the great interest culminated in a memorable scene outside the Railway Station on Tuesday. At least 200 people assembled, not to mention the many thousands that lined the route all along the High Street.” The Rhyl Journal 10/10/1914.
