THE win­ner of this year’s Nos Galan poster com­pe­ti­tion has been an­nounced.

Each year, an art com­pe­ti­tion is held across the bor­ough, with all pri­mary schools el­i­gi­ble to en­ter the an­nual com­pe­ti­tion.

Or­gan­ised by Rhondda Cynon Taf coun­cil and the Nos Galan Com­mit­tee, pupils are asked to de­sign and cre­ate a poster to come up with an im­age which en­cap­su­lates the at­mos­phere of the world­fa­mous Nos Galan Road Races, tak­ing place on New Year’s Eve.

This year’s win­ner has been an­nouned as Daniel Nash, from Ton Pe­tre Ju­nior School, with Halle Price, of Pengeu­lan Pri­mary School com­ing in sec­ond place and Kian Jenk­ins, of Ton Pen­tre Pri­mary School third in this year’s com­pe­ti­tion.

Coun­cil­lor Ann Crim­mings, chair­woman of the Nos Galan Com­mit­tee and Rhondda Cynon Taf coun­cil cab­i­net mem­ber for en­vi­ron­ment and leisure, said: “Once again we had a fan­tas­tic num­ber of en­tries, all de­pict­ing won­der­ful im­ages of the Nos Galan Road Races.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions to Daniel on his win­ning en­try, por­tray­ing the words Nos Galan writ­ten in the sky. The judges felt that this strik­ing de­sign fit­ted per­fectly with the great suc­cess of our event, yearonyear.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions also to Halle and Kian, and ev­ery­one else who sent us their en­tries – they were all of a very high stan­dard. We look for­ward to wel­com­ing ev­ery­one to the 2017 Nos Galan Road Races on New Year’s Eve.”

Thie year, more than 1,000 peo­ple will be tak­ing part in this year’s 5k Adult Fun Run on the streets of Moun­tain Ash on De­cem­ber 31, with a fur­ther 325 ath­letes com­pet­ing in the Elite Race – and many more in the chil­drens’ races.

Each per­son who crosses the fin­ish­ing line will re­ceive a com­mem­o­ra­tive Nos Galan T-shirt, medal and a goodie bag.

To run the event, there will be tem­po­rary road clo­sures in place on De­cem­ber 31 along Llan­wonno Road, Cil­haul Ter­race, High Street, Ox­ford Street and sur­round­ing ar­eas.
