Annual Eisteddfod Gwyl Dewi was huge success

THE ANNUAL Eisteddfod Gwyl Dewi was held on February 28 at The City Hall, St David’s. 

The theme was ‘Holidays’ and a large audience enjoyed the stage competitions and seeing the many entries in the craft, flower arranging, literature, photography and cooking categories – especially since the Eisteddfod had been postponed for two years due to Covid regulations.

The Eisteddfod Chair, awarded for the highest total number of points in the competitions, was won by Sally Martyn, who also gained most points in the English literature competitions and won the Shield, donated by members and friends of Caerfarchell C. M. Chapel for the highest number of points in the art and craft competitions.

The Rolling Pin Competition, for the highest number of points in the cookery competitions, was won by Iris James. 

Jane James won the silver cup for a hymn solo, donated by John and Glenys James, and Rhian Olwen Peters gained the most points in the Welsh Literature competitions.

The Committee would like to thank all the competitors, adjudicators, the compere, accompanists, helpers and Friends in Harmony for making the event such a success. 

The Committee and everyone who has been involved with the Eisteddfod over the years wish to extend their sincere thanks to Glenys James who was the coordinator for the Eisteddfod since the very start, in 2010, for all her hard work and enthusiasm.

The Committee also wishes to thank Francis Northall for making the small chair, which is presented to the winner of the Eisteddfod Chair, and Morgan Price of Ysgol Penrhyn Dewi for playing two excellent trumpet solos at the Eisteddfod.

Next year’s Eisteddfod will be held on Thursday, February 29, 2024 and the theme is ‘Habitat’.

Further details can be obtained from the new co-ordinator, Rebecca Thornton, telephone 07890 629014.
