A new logo designed by a local artist has been launched to mark the fifth anniversary of the creation of Llangollen's Valley Girls WI.
The logo depicts a modern-looking woman in the foreground of Castel Dinas Bran and incorporates some of the traditional as well as contemporary features of the WI.
It was designed by Sarah Meade who owns and runs the gift shop Honey Pots in Castle Street and an online business, Sister Sister Biz.
Sarah said: “It’s been lovely to design a logo for The Valley Girls WI in Llangollen.  I’ve known many of the ladies for years and wanted to design a fresh logo that reflected the fun nature of their personalities.
“The design includes evidence of baking and crafting, with cupcakes and knitting needles as well as a bit of glamour with ruby red lips and nails.
"Daffodils have been included as well as some Welsh tapestry, as the Valley Girls are proud of their Welsh heritage and there is of course the ubiquitous jar of jam!”
Valley Girls WI was established in 2013 by a group of thirtysomethings who were keen to cement friendships forged at baby and toddle groups. 
It has evolved and grown with more than 20 regular members, meeting on the first Thursday of every month at the Memorial Hall, Market Street.
The logo will be used on pin badges for the Valley Girls to wear at meetings, as well as at local and national events.
President of Valley Girls WI Gail Ellson said: “We are all absolutely delighted with this new logo. Sarah has expertly captured the essence of the Valley Girls in this beautiful hand drawn logo.
“Valley Girls is going from strength to strength with highlights over the past five years including a kayaking trip over the Pontcysyllte aqueduct, a colourful yarn bomb of the town centre of Llangollen and a fantastic vintage themed charity calendar.
“We’re working on our 2019 programme at the moment, but it will definitely include a session on yoga, a book club, we’ll explore mental health issues and make some hanging 'bra-skets' to add colour to the town!”
* Valley Girls WI meets at the Memorial Hall, Market Street, Llangollen on the first Thursday of each month (unless otherwise stated).  All are welcome, and you can contact the group at or via Facebook.
