Food supply operation is stood down

* A llanblogger picture of the mountain fire at its height last weekend.

The team of dedicated volunteers who have been delivering vital supplies to crews battling the mountain fire above Llangollen have now called off the big operation.
The drivers, who came from across the community, had eight days of intense activity delivering fresh sandwiches and drinks to the parched firefighters around Llantysilio and the Horseshoe Pass.
At the height of the operation they were doing three drops a day with supplies donated by a host of local businesses.
One of the organisers, Cat Meade from Wingetts estate agents in Castle Street, also started an online appeal to buy supplies which raised over £1,500.  

Cat has said that now the fire has at last been brought under control the food-lift has ceased.

She said: “Thank you to everyone who has supported the firefighters and teams on the Horseshoe Pass over the last two weeks, no further donations or funds are required.

“A huge thank you to every individual and business from all over that have supported, a great community and neighbouring spirit which has brought us all together .. amazing people!

“I have a few bits of drinks and snacks left which will be donated to Llangollen food bank.”

A spokesman for the fire and rescue service added: "Thanks again to all those who have supported our firefighters whilst we attended this incident."
