Llangollen Community Christmas Lunch saw a total of 72 turkey meals served up on the big day.

Of those prepared and served 63 were enjoyed in a specially-decorated St Collen's Community Hall and nine were delivered by volunteer drivers to people in their homes.   

Of the diners in the hall were 13 children, the youngest of whom was spending her first Christmas having been born just eight months ago.    

Organiser Mike Connolly said: "A terrific team of helpers worked right through from 11am to keep our guests looked after really well.     

"Among the many generous supporters of the lunch were Llangollen Town Council, St Collen’s Church, Llangollen’s men’s five-a-side football team, Liberty Tavern, S & G Bistro, Ruth Owen, Lynne Williams, Suzi Moore and others who called in on Christmas morning to deliver gifts and their good wishes.  

"My wife Val and myself want to express our particular thanks to Ian Wright, who with his grand-daughter Millie Davies, spent several hours on Christmas Eve setting up and dressing the tables, and to the stars of the kitchen who pulled all the food together. Our suited-n-booted chef was Scott very ably assisted by Jess Hart.    

"Thanks also to Elizabeth (Betty) Johnson and her late husband Peter for setting up this wonderful event and handing the baton over to Val and I some years ago."
