Cardigan, Ceredigion, renamed for Christmas Jumper Day

Mayor Clive Davies

The town of Cardigan has been temporarily renamed "Jumper" to coincide with Christmas Jumper Day.

Mayor Clive Davies will announce the change on Thursday and Jumper will remain a Ceredigion town until Christmas Day.

Cardigan town council joined forces with charity Save The Children to promote the annual tradition of wearing a Christmas jumper on 16 December.

Schools, businesses and the town's castle have also changed their names.
