Latest News – March 2016
The Radio Glan Clwyd Roadshow team attended the ‘SpringFest’ event at Pentre Mawr Park in Abergele on Sunday 28 February 2016. Team members Alan, Lesley, Brenda, Andy and Phil were on duty throughout the day, playing music and making announcements. At one point the crowds were dancing in the park to Status Quo and rocking away to tracks by Queen! It was a busy event, with wood carvings, a birds of prey display, a dog show, Abergele’s very own ‘Bake Off’ competition, and lots of stalls and competitions to participate in. Many thanks to the organising committee who made us feel very welcome. The photograph above is of presenter Brenda Jones who made a new friend – Adam, who is a whopping 6ft9 Viking warrior! Below, Lesley works hard collecting donations, the wood carvings that were on display, and Alan and Brenda taking care of the music.
