A FLINTSHIRE pub put on an impromptu disco for local children following the cancellation of a major agricultural show.

Following the abandonment of the Caerwys Show due to inclement weather on Saturday, the Crooked Horn pub in Brynford, near Holywell, held a disco for all the children who missed out on the show.

As well as this, Holywell Kebab House provided free food in the form of pizzas, nuggets and garlic bread as Holywell's community spirit was seen to not be dampened by the rain.

Emma Ward, local businesswoman and parent, said: "The rain may have spoilt the Caerwys show but it did not dampen our community spirit.

"Brynford School parents approached the The Crooked Horn and they very kindly put on a free disco for all the kids missing out on the show."

And Emma's daughter Africa played a key role in using her charm to organise the delicious food for her and her friends.

"Africa (Emma's daughter) being the little social warrior she is used her charms and contacts at Holywell kebab house and they donated a load of free food. How is that for community spirit?

"Things like this can act as a ripple effect in the community. Holywell generally gets a bad name for a small criminal minority of the population, but things like this show there is a great community spirit in the town.

"It was a brilliant day, it helped parents of children who attend Brnyford School to meet and get to know each other better, and also for the kids to have a party after being so disappointed by the cancellation of the show."

The children also raised £33 towards next year's Caerwys show.
