Additional parking is being made available for those people attending the funeral of Alyn and Deeside AM Carl Sargeant in Connah’s Quay on Friday, December 1.

Hundreds of people are expected to attend the midday funeral at St Marks Church which his family have said will be a ‘celebration of his life.’

There will be two car parks made available, the main one will be at the former Somerfield supermarket car park.

A shuttle bus service will run from the carpark, which is next to the Cenotaph just off High Street, up to Church Hill.

The Halfway House pub car park is also being made available for those attending which is within walking distance of St Marks.

Mr Sargeant’s son Jack said the family have decided the day should be “a celebration of dad’s life -not a day for mourning.”

“Everyone who knew dad will understand he wouldn’t want it any other way. He was never one for pomp. He was never one for ‘airs and graces’. That was never his style.

“So, we ask that there be no formal suits nor black worn on this day of celebration. We want people to wear something that makes them feel happy and to come and remember dad as he was – kind generous and the life and soul of the party.

All friends – from far and wide – are welcome to St. Mark’s Church to join us.”

The former Communities Secretary died at his home on 7 November four days after he was dismissed from the Welsh Government by First Minister Carwyn Jones following unspecified allegations.
