Vicar gives his blessing to railway's real ale event

Local vicar Father Lee Taylor, above, this evening performed a traditional beer blessing ceremony at the official opening of the beer festival which will run throughout Llangollen Railway's 1960s Weekend.

It's the second time Father Lee has blessed the ale in the town - the last occasion was when he performed a similar ceremony on a real ale train earlier this year.

Helping him with the opening of the festival, below, was town crier Chem Cheminias - wearing his new kilt - who bellowed a hearty welcome to drinkers.

* The duo will be together again on Sunday morning when they play key roles in a procession through the town, from St John's to St Collen's Churches, to celebrate the town's patron saint, St Collen.
