Call goes out for help with running Christmas Festival

* John Palmer and Austin Cheminais of the Christmas Festival team hand over a £1,000 cheque to the ladies of Llangollen Food Share.

The team which organises Llangollen's annual Christmas Festival would like to hear from anyone interested in helping out with this year's event.

According to their chair, Austin 'Chem' Cheminais, the 2022 festival was the best yet, thanks to the support they had from the community and generous donations from anonymous donors.

He said: "The hardworking team who put the event together have already had their first meeting of the year to start planning this year’s festival, which will take place on Saturday November 25.

"We hope to make it even bigger this year. 

"If you would like to get involved in helping to organise the event or are able to support us financially please contact me by emailing"

Representatives of the festival Group recently shared the proceeds of the Christmas Raffle that runs alongside the festival, which sold 3,000 tickets last year.

This enabled them to donate £1,000 to Wales Air Ambulance and £1,000 to Llangollen Food Share. The remaining £1,000 will help fund this year’s festival.

Chem added: "Our thanks go to all the local businesses in and around Llangollen who donated prizes for the raffle, which included a light aircraft flight from the Air Ambulance base at Welshpool Airport.

"Thanks also go the businesses and shops around Llangollen, the groups and individuals who joined the parade, our local schools, the groups that performed for us on the day and to Sunbelt Rentals who provided the traffic management without charge."
