Dafen Christmas Fair was another great success this year thanks to the many dedicated volunteers, supporters, and local businesses and organisations who help to make it happen.
The event, which Dafen Forum has been organising annually over the last 8 years, costs around £4,500 to put into action and wouldn't be possible without the help of local businesses and fundraisers. Their contributions make it possible for us to hold a worthwhile event to bring the community together, with families paying just a nominal fee for entry into the Fair which includes a fantastic fireworks display by award winning pyrotechnicians Pendragon.
We would like to say a special thank you to Barclays Bank, Parker Plant Hire and Dyfed Steels for their support this year and also to Llanelli Rural Council for awarding us a Community Grant towards the provision of our Christmas tree and public liability insurance.
The dry, mild weather played its part in the success of this years Fair, providing comfortable conditions to enjoy the outdoor entertainment. The funfair managed by G. Linsey was as popular as ever and a bumper crowd watched the schools' choirs perform in the Marquee, followed by an energetic display by Dafen Dance Club.
Crazie Crepes, hotdogs and burgers were available for sale at the fair, as well as refreshments in the Community Hall where children were able to visit Santa in his Grotto and parents were able to shop at the stalls.
Llanelli Town Mayor Roger Price and Mayoress Ruth Price visited the Community Hall to award prizes for the schools arts and crafts competition which was judged earlier in the week with the help of Rev. Canon Huw Mosford of the combined Parish of Dafen and Felinfoel.
This years winners were :
Finally, Wales' premier display company Pendragon set off the much anticipated and impressive fireworks show before a disco was held at the Cricket Club to round off the festive celebration.
Dafen Forum would like to thank all those who made this years event a success and look forward to your support in 2015.
Have a Merry Christmas
