Describe your Club in 3 words:

Fun, Active and Dedicated

Favourite Club Night Activity:

All Club Night evenings and activities are so much fun, but we all enjoy a welcome evening at the beginning of each year. The activity is a huge ‘Slip and Slide’ on the family farm of one of the club members and everyone loves running and sliding down the slide. The evening will follow with a BBQ and it’s a great opportunity for us to welcome new members to our club and catch up with current club members after a break over the summer.

Fundraising Accomplishments:

This past year has been a very busy year for us as a club as we have had the privilege of hosting the Eryri Rally. This was a new and unforgettable experience for all the members and we thank them very much for all the preparation ahead of the big day. Hosting the Rally meant we got to raise money for the County and there was also a small café there, the proceeds going towards the club fund. We also held a concert at the beginning of the year at Llanystumdwy Hall to raise funds.

Work Within the Community:

  • Hosting a club night litter picking along the beach.
  • We got a piano for Llanystumdwy Village hall and some of the members spent time volunteering to put wheels on it.
  • We held an evening of singing and performances for Porthmadog Merched y Wawr.
  • A group of our members went to the local School to tidy up around the yard and fields.

Favourite Competitions:

We have truly enjoyed every competition this year, and as a club have had an amazing experience hosting the Rally. We have been very fortunate this year to have the three Tug of War teams, juniors, girls and boys who all won at the Rally and went through to the final round at the Royal Welsh where the boys came second and the junior team came third – so it has to be said that the Tug of War Competition is our favourite.

How do you use the Welsh Language:

The Welsh language is always used within the club, and we always ensure that club talks and evenings are held through the medium of Welsh where possible. We always use Welsh songs in stage competitions and at Eisteddfodau as well. We also hold poem writing evenings before the Eisteddfod to help each other, and this year one member, Mared Roberts won the Crown competition, and was runner-up in Wales.
