Today the crown for the 2011 Wrexham and District National Eisteddfod was presented to the local executive committee. Designed and produced by John Price from Machynlleth, he is creating his fourth crown for the National Eisteddfod. Each part of the crown represents a different element of the areas around where the Eisteddfod is held. The band of the crown represents a World Heritage site not far from the area, the Pontcysyllte aqueduct.

Shoes from Cerys Matthews, TV presenters such as Angharad Mair, politicians and stars of Welsh soap Pobl y Cwm.

The money raised will go to Save The Children's No Child Born To Die campaign.
