CONGRATULATIONS to all of the schools which took part in our Christmas Tree Competition on Wednesday 7th December 2016. Cllr Julie Barton and Cllr David Nicholas thoroughly enjoyed their morning and were very impressed with the standard of the trees. This is the fourth year that the Community Council has run the Christmas Tree competition in this format and the quality of the entries improves each year.
1st Place: Llantrisant Primary School
Beautiful tree with poppy themed decorations. All pupils involved including those with Special Needs. It was inspired by the unveiling of the local war memorial, and judges thought this was a brilliant example of linking together local events, the curriculum and Christmas.
2nd Place: YGG Castellau
Pink and white theme. Lovely variety and number of decorations all made by pupils, an impressive tree.
3rd Place: Penygawsi Primary School
Whole tree turned into a white angel. Included hand knotted garlands, and every
pupil had made a feather for the wings. Very ambitious and dramatic.
