Millie Hannant achieved seven personal bests in her seven events, claiming two silver medals and a bronze.

Rhodri Williams, who swam two personal bests in two events, secured a bronze.

Ruthin Rays were also out in force to compete at the Chirk Christmas Cracker.

This is a great level three fun gala and the team was in great form.

As usual, times tumbled and medals were won, with the team achieving amazing results.

Ruthin Rays would like to thank everyone who attended the presentation evening and party.

During a lovely evening, it was fantastic to see so many swimmers and their families enjoying the food, disco and company.

"The generosity of everyone was astounding and we had quite a lot of food items left over that we have donated to be distributed out by a local food charity," said a Ruthin Rays spokeswoman.
