Over the years, we have come to expect a high level of performance, and this year didn't disappoint. Well done to everybody involved, especially Catherine and Ann, children, teenagers, mums and dads, especially all those who gave freely of their spare time. Thanks to all the sponsors, who donate each year so generously.
This year the proceeds for the show will stay local helping to fund much needed repairs and renovations in Clondrohid Parish, Church and Hall.
