The popular Ronnie Street party, organised by a Powys family to celebrate their late son, is returning this year.

Already in its third year, the event, organised by Alice and Lewis Jones and their children Dougie, aged two and a half, and Mina, aged 17 months, pays tribute to their son and brother Ronnie, who died at just 15 months old in November 2021.

The thoughtful tribute will take place at Seasons Café in Caersws, near Newtown, on Saturday, July 20.

The party raises funds for the Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith children's hospices, which provided care for Ronnie when he was alive.

It is expected to draw crowds with attractions starting at noon and finishing at 3pm, with evening performances rounding off the day.

An array of attractions including funfair rides, donkey rides, toddler football camp, an animal man, and a princess party, as well as food stalls, a ferrari and an ice cream van.

The evening will have performances by the Newtown Young Performers, an ABBA tribute band, choirs, and bands.

Ronnie celebrated his first birthday in July 2021, with a Sesame Street-themed party, due to his love of Elmo.

Ms Jones said: "Ronnie Street is a play on Sesame Street as Ronnie loved Elmo, he was his favourite.

"The party is a lovely way to bring friends, family and community together to celebrate Ronnie’s life and remember him.

"It’s important for Dougie and Mina to know about the big brother they never had the chance to meet, and a party is the best way for them to hear all about him in a fun way.

"We hope to raise £5,000 for Hope House, and have been blown away by generous businesses and supporters who have offered their time and commitment to help us."

They have already raised £20,000 in previous years.

Fundraiser Bekki Fardoe said: "Thank you to Alice and Lewis for all their hard work putting on the third Party at Ronnie Street.

"Their fun days have already raised an amazing £20,000 to support children with life-threatening conditions and their families.

"Fingers crossed for a lovely sunny day for what looks set to be their greatest party yet!"
