The All Wales Roll The Barrel Competition 2019

Once again, the annual All Wales Roll The Barrel competition was held on the high street of Denbigh town on Boxing Day. Although having a damp and cloudy sky at first, a large crowd had gathered by the start of proceedings.

First up was a drive through of over 25 vintage tractors and Landrovers of various age and condition from the 1940s to the present day modern tractors. The crowd were then captivated  by the presence of over 60 horses and riders of the Flint And Denbigh Hunt, who have been meeting on Boxing Day at Denbigh for almost a century, where they once again received the annual Stirrup Cup. Also entertaining the crowd were John Sellers and Dilwyn Pierce together with Rotarian Ifor John Jones. Starters of this year’s races were our President Hywel Watkin, The Mayor of Denbigh Cllr Gaynor Wood-Tickle and special guest Welsh actor Dewi Wykes.

The main event of the day then followed with numerous competitors in the men’s and women’s senior races. Another very popular part of the morning’s proceedings is the Junior barrel rolling competition, again very well supported. 

The Roll The Barrel prize winners were as follows:

Senior Men – Gareth Owen         Senior Women – Eluned Evans

Senior Boys – Gwion Williams     Senior Girls – Ffion Jones

Junior Boys – Dyfan Roberts        Junior Girls – Hughes 

The Rotary Club of Denbigh annual Christmas Draw winners were:

1st Prize –  Philip Mesham, Denbigh

2nd Prize – Carol Hughes, Denbigh

3rd Prize – Ioan Jones, Llandyrnog
