Local politicians welcome Mold Festival

Delyn MP David Hanson and Sandy Mewies AM have welcomed the success of this year’s Mold Food and Drink Festival and are backing the town to go from strength to strength.

Once again Mold Food and Drink Festival proved to be a great success amongst visitors and locals. The Festival, which was set up last year, attracted over 11,000 people, a three fold increase on 2006.

The Festival gave visitors an opportunity to take advantage of the wide range of local produce available, including meat, fish, vegetables and cheeses. Local performers took to the stage to entertain the hoards whilst celebrity and local chefs gave cookery demonstrations in the packed exhibition hall.

David Hanson said:

“I was pleased to go to the opening of Mold Food and Drink Festival and to support the local businesses, the Town and County Councils and many volunteers who made this Festival such a success.

“I particularly want to pay tribute to the organisers, Mold Hotel and Restaurant Association, who worked tirelessly, on a voluntary basis, to make this event the success it undoubtedly was. There were also a large number of volunteers that gave up their time over the weekend and their contribution needs to be recognised.

“Mold continues to go from strength to strength with the success of this year’s Eisteddfod and becoming the first town in Wales to gain Cittaslow status. As ever I continue to be wholly supportive of local business and always welcome the opportunity to promote local initiatives that help boost the economy and improve the quality of life for people in Delyn.”
