THE LLECHRYD Parti yn y Parc theme this year was the Wild West and the party started with the scarecrow competition.

A record 19 scarecrows were entered and Peter Dumphy was the winner.

Schoolchildren had also made wigwams and totem poles during a month of art sessions which were displayed around the village.

Carnival Day started with floats and fancy dress with Cllr Ken Symmons opening the event along with Llechryd Primary School performing. A full day of events followed, with children’s entertainment, games, arts and crafts, stalls, food and drink, and then evening entertainment provided by Memphis Belle.

Michelle had provided line dancing sessions for the month before so dancing was in keeping with the theme.

On Sunday, the annual treasure hunt and duck race took place.

A spokesperson for Llechryd Village Events said: “A big thank you to all the volunteers who work tirelessly to make this annual event such a success. This is the eighth year of holding such an event and we believe that this was the best so far.

“The committee would like to thank the businesses and people in the community who have donated so greatly over the years. Each event, be it the annual summer Parti, the Christmas dinner or any other event organised is non-profit making.

“All money raised is put back into the fund for the next event which is arranged. The committee has also donated to local causes, both financially and in a voluntary capacity.

“We always welcome new people to help so please get in touch if you'd like to be involved. See the Llechryd Village Events Facebook page for continual updates.”
