After a three-year break the Bettws Big Picnic returned with a bang - and it raised £476 for Newport Mind.

A huge crowd, including Newport mayor Cllr Martyn Kellaway and his wife Helen, turned out for a fantastic day and enjoyed a variety of entertainment, fun, games and lots of quality affordable goodies supplied by the local community.
