Fete promises to be bigger and better than ever

* Plas Newydd, setting for today's summer fete.

The annual Plas Newydd Fete today (Saturday) promises to be bigger than ever this year. 

There is a big emphasis on family activities. 

An Art Exhibition will display the work of talented young artists at our local primary schools. 

Children can take part in a creative crown competition to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday. 

An expert will be on hand to teach children, and their parents, the art of fly-fishing.  There is also a chance to make pom-poms and to try your hand at pebble painting.

To celebrate the Euro 2016 Football Tournament, under-11 players who come in a team or country kit will be given two free goes in the football competition.

Wrex the Dragon, Wrexham’s mascot will be on hand to meet everybody.  There is also a Punch and Judy and a Magic Show.

It is hoped that this will be a real community event.  Although it is organised by the Rotary and Inner wheel Clubs of the area, other organisations will be represented, including RAFA, the National Trust, Hearing Dogs for the Deaf and the new Micro Dot Cinema.

There should be plenty of things to buy, including hand-made jewellery, cosmetics and the usual selling stalls such as plants, cakes, books and toys. Home-made refreshments are available at a reasonable price.

The Fete opens at 2pm. and the winning raffle tickets will be announced at the end 4.15 – 4.30pm.
