* Tessa Holland talks to Gill Thomas at the Country Market in Llangollen Town Hall.
PhD student Tessa Holland from Newcastle University came to town on Friday to meet some of the Cittaslow bid team and look around the town.
Tessa's research is focusing on how the various Cittaslow towns in the UK network with each other, learn from each other and from the global Cittaslow movement.
She's only just started her research and is visiting existing Cittaslow towns, to get a sense of what they are doing.
She is interested in Llangollen as a town that is just starting out on the Cittaslow process.
Bid group leader Phil Thane showed Tessa around town and introduced her to several team members.
Llangollen's Cittaslow group is on track to complete the application process by June.
