We are absolutely thrilled and honoured to be awarded the ‘Raymond Bartley Community Award’ for 2019 at Denbigh Carnival/Carnifal Dinbych today. This was in recognition of the annual Christmas Day Lunch which has been running for over 10 years and provides a hot dinner, entertainment and company to those who may be on their own on Christmas Day.
A huge ‘THANK YOU’ to the wonderful people of Denbigh who voted for us – we cannot begin to thank you all enough for your kindness.
