Over 80 children and 50 adults attended a pantomime hosted by the owners of Grocontinental for families who work for the company.

Staged at Prees Cricket & Recreation Club, Dick Whittington was performed by travelling production company, Chaplins Entertainment.

The children and grandchildren of employees were also treated to interval refreshments and chocolate selection boxes.

Grocontinental Manager, Diane Nelson, who organised the pantomime on behalf of the company, said:

“This is the third year we’ve staged the pantomime and the tickets went like hot cakes.  The standard of the pantomime was superb and the children really enjoyed themselves.

“Many of our employees have young families and the pantomime proved to be the perfect Christmas treat.”
