THE people of Froncysyllte are planning to brave the weather and their pounding heads on New Year's Day to take part in the fourth annual tug of war competition to raise money for the village school.
The event will be held across the Froncysyllte canal basin on New Year's Day at 12.30pm.
Last year £400 was raised for Froncysyllte County Primary School, but this year organisers are hoping to make it an even bigger affair by setting themselves a target of £1,000. The money raised from the tug-of-war will go towards buying new laptop computers to further enhance the IT suite, as well as helping to keep the after-school club up and running.
Sponsor forms have been issued to all those taking part and a raffle at the The Aqueduct Inn, has raised £100. Cadbury's in Chirk have agreed to match-fund four of their employees who are competing.
Jim Davies, who is helping to organise the event, said: 'The school is the hub of the community and this is our way of giving something back.'
Anyone wishing to make a donation or sponsor the teams should send a cheque to Froncysyllte County Primary School or just turn up on the day.
