HUNDREDS of people gathered at a fifteenth century hall overlooking the Clwydian Range for a summer fair.

For the second time, Llanrhaedr Hall, a care home in Denbigh, held a summer fair to raise funds to provide its residents with fun activities and days out over the next year.

Stalls provided tea, coffee and cake for £1, while other stalls held a tombola, raffle, book sale, bric-a-brac, as well as running competitions such as 'guess the name' and 'guess how many sweets in the jar'. There was also face painting and a star appearance from Jake the pet therapy dog, the home's therapy dog who visits on a weekly basis.

Businesses were invited to vamp up the fair that included Gordell’s scented candles and soaps, A Little Magic children's party entertainers, and Madam Mims Marvellous Beasts, with tarantulas, snakes, snails and bearded dragons. No pitch fee was required, but businesses donated prizes to be handed out at the raffle.

Erika Jones, event organiser, said: “I would like to thank the staff and families that donated prizes for our stalls and attended the fair. I have had a lot of support from my colleagues and would like to thank them for it.

“The most rewarding part for me was seeing our residents having fun and smiling. This is how I knew it had been a success.

“All the residents had been working really hard for the summer fair. They made all the signs, stuck all the numbers on the tombola prizes, and some of them even donated for the raffle.

“I couldn't have done it without them.”
