ALL BUSSINESSES, residents and visitors alike are being encouraged to join in the celebration of the second Cambrian Mountains Day on February, 28.

Cambrian Mountains supporters are being asked to fly the flag on social media by sharing their favourite image, experience or place and using #cambrianmountainsday and #cambrianmountains in their messages on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

“Supporters might have a modern take on the Cambrian Mountains or a memorable event, encountered in this super mountain range,” said Dafydd Wyn Morgan, projects manager for Cambrian Mountains Initiative CIC.

“There are so many top Cambrian Mountains themes around at the moment, including nature, heritage, trails and dark skies. Branded local produce is popular too and don’t forget the natural beauty!

“We hope supporters join us in celebrating this astounding part of Wales, in the year of ‘Llwybrau: Wales, by Trails’.”

Cambrian Mountains Initiative has created a special video for supporters to use on your social media that promotes trails in the Cambrian Mountains.

Visit the blog page https://www.thecambrianmountains.co.uk/post/cambrian-mountains-trails-celebrated-in-llwybrau-wales-by-trails-videos – to view two videos which are free to share.

On the first Cambrian Mountains Day in 2022, the Cambrian Mountains: Area of Astounding Natural Beauty community-created brand guidelines and a new website – https://www.thecambrianmountains.co.uk/ – were launched.

“Cambrian Mountains communities need support now more than ever with the rural economy continuing to be as resilient as ever despite increasing challenges and hardships,” added Dafydd.

“There are some amazing local producers in the Cambrian Mountains working as a network to create incredible produce.

“Any carrying the Cambrian Mountains brand logo – as well as those local produce ‘champions’ who offer significant shelf space to promote and sell local produce across the area.

“Similarly, consider all the hard-working holiday accommodation owners who work all hours to ensure that visitors get the best holiday experience by preparing properties meticulously, as well as signposting guests to places to eat and drink, attractions to visit and activities to try.

“By raising the profile of the Cambrian Mountains on February 28 we can all play a very small part in ensuring that the people, communities and businesses of the region have a brighter future. They will also appreciate the fact that we have them in our minds on this day.
