Results of town's two Christmas competitions are in

Scarecrow winners:

* The two schools' scarecrow family.

* The second of the schools' entries.

* Angelina Ballerina and Frosty the Snowman, Fron Bache.

The results of the two competitions run by Llangollen Christmas Festival Committee in a bid to cheer up the town following the cancellation of this year's event due to the pandemic are now in.

Committee chair Austin Cheminais, who is also the new town mayor, said: "We have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of those who have taken part in the Christmas Lights and Christmas Scarecrows competitions.

“The number of Christmas scarecrows must now number well over 50. We’ve had great fun searching them out. People are so creative and imaginative; the scarecrows have made us all smile!

"It’s been great to see so many people joining in and decorating their houses. There are parts of Llangollen that are truly lit up."

He added: "It has proved exceedingly difficult to judge because what we’ve seen is so good.

"We’ve had a team of judges who have been out and about over the last week and we wish we could give everyone who has taken part a prize

"After much deliberation we decided to split the prizes and add some more to the prize fund so that we could have more winners.

"We appreciate that everyone will have their favourites, but the judges agreed upon the following entries, where they can be found and their prizes:


Ysgol Bryn Collen and Ysgol Y Gwernant - School entrance £50     

Angelina Ballerina and Frosty - Fron Bache - £25
