We at Lawsons value the community in which we live and as such are proud to support many local organisations and events. Our Senior Director, Angeline Lawson, is currently chairperson of the Henllan Community Leisure Association which organises the annual Henllan Extravaganza. With a number of the family sitting on the committee, employees who volunteer to help on the day and employees and their families who come along on the day to enjoy the fun – this really is an event which is eagerly anticipated by the wider Lawson family.
Speaking after this year’s Extravaganza, Angeline thanked all those who helped make it a huge success.
The sun shone as the crowds flocked to the field to enjoy the event held at Garn Field, Henllan. With a host of displays and activities ranging from parrots to axemen, Morris Dancers to classic cars, Denbighshire Leisure Services, children’s activities run by the Henllan children Activity Group, shire horses, falconry, ferrets, craft tents, play areas and Horlicks the sheep every taste was catered for. Add to the mix stalls, stands, delicious food and some foot tapping music to boot and this was truly a day to remember.
Speaking after the event Angeline said: “The HCLA is a non for profit organisation, our aim is to support and bring the local community together, I believe Henllan Extravaganza 2016 achieved this!”
She also paid special tribute to the committee members and volunteers who worked tirelessly to make sure this year’s event was such a success. “The support we received this year was overwhelming with many volunteers turning up to help erect and to dismantle the show field including representatives of the Caerwys Show and the St Asaph Country Fair.
“We now look forward to repaying the compliment at the Caerwys and St Asaph events. It is important that we support each other if we are to ensure the survival of these unique village and country fairs.”
The HCLA’s next event will be the annual Bonfire and Firework display on November 5th 2016.
