A TV chef famous for appearances on Ready Steady Cook, Great Food Live and This Morning graced a festival showcasing the best food and drink from Wrexham.

More than 3,000 people attended the weekend’s Nightingale House Hospice fundraising food festival, where TV favourite Lesley Waters demonstrated her skills alongside a feast of culinary delights and exhibits from across the region.

Food lovers turned out in great numbers to Llwyn Isaf to sample the delights on offer from a host of local suppliers, ranging from coffee and chocolate to beer, cheese and even kangaroo, ostrich and crocodile burgers.

The hospice’s fundraising events manager’ Margaret Hollings said: “It was really successful.

“There were 65 stalls and live music on both days and the weather was excellent for us too.

“It was the third time we have run the event and Lesley Waters was very popular with everyone. It was busy all weekend.

“We have had lots of positive feedback and I would like to thank people from the local community and further afield for coming to support the food festival.”

The event was run in conjunction with Local Food First Wrexham, a group aiming to increase opportunities for local food and drink producers from rural parts of the county, and Wrexham Council.

Last year’s event raised £14,000 for Nightingale House and organisers are hopeful of matching that figure this time around once all proceeds are in.
