Little Amelie Ring is one of the one-in-a-thousand babies born profoundly deaf. A few weeks ago she had a complex operation to try and help.
Today Amelie and her parents Vicky and Rob made the journey from their home near Holywell to a Manchester hospital - to literally switch on Amelie's hearing and give her a new sense - Rob Shelley was there.
This is the moment little Amelie Ring heard for the first time. The 20 month old from Holywell was born profoundly deaf and underwent an operation to insert bilateral cochlear implants to enable her to hear. Today was the first time her microphones were switched on and she heard her parents' voices.
A baby who was born deaf is set to hear sound for the very first time today.
Amelie Ring from Holywell had an electronic device surgically implanted to enable her to hear for the first time.
In December, surgeons has to postpone plans to insert bilateral cochlear implants after the 20 month old stopped breathing after receiving an anaesthetic.
Last week the implants were put in place and Amelie's mother, Vicky, described said it was a day the family thought they may never see.
Amelie was born at 28 weeks and spent her first 102 days in Glan Clwyd Hospital after suffering major blood loss in her mother's womb. She underwent nine blood transfusions and a heart operation while in hospital.
Singers Richard and Adam Johnson from Holywell in Flintshire started the year turning up to a Britain's Got Talent audition just on the off chance.
Since they finished third, they have topped the album charts for four weeks - and now they've got their eye on topping the christmas charts too.
But today they were bit closer to home, as they switched on the Christmas lights of Holywell. Our own Rob Shelley was there to meet them.
Andy Furey is the National Officer for Communication Workers Union, which represents staff working in Crown Post Offices.
He told ITV News: "A Welsh town like Holywell needs a Crown Post Office. If we lose it, this could be the death knell for the high street in Holywell."
Delyn MP David Hanson has told ITV News more detail is needed regarding proposals to franchise Holywell's Crown Post Office.
"Part of tonight's meeting is to hear from local people as to what they think of the service," he added.
The Post Office says its 370-branch crown network is losing £37million a year, which cannot be sustained.
Delyn MP David Hanson will be among the speakers at this evening's meeting. He says the future of Wales' crown post offices needs to be protected.
Campaigners against plans to franchise Holywell's Crown Post Office will hold a public meeting later.
The High Street branch is one of eight being considered for franchise out of 20 Crown Post Offices across Wales - leaving 12 by 2015.
The Post Office said it is committed to keeping branches on high streets across the UK, pointing out that around 98% of the total network in Wales already operate successfully through franchises and agreements with retailers.
But Communication Workers Union, the trade union representing staff working in Crown Post Offices, says Post Offices are 'key attractions' in town centres and believes there are ways to keep Holywell's open.
A petition has also been signed by thousands of people objecting to the plans.
The meeting will be held at Holywell Leisure Centre from 6pm.
