It was a pleasure on Saturday to attend a well-supported show at Llanrwst which, I’m pleased to say, also enjoyed the weather that the efforts of the volunteers deserve.

The previous week I had missed the Eglwysbach show for the first time since my election back in 2010 due to family commitments, so it was good to be able to catch-up with organisations such as the Farmers Union of Wales, the National Farmers Union and others who work to ensure that we have a vibrant and functioning rural community here in north west Wales.

FUW members tackle Snowdon for charity. / Aelodau Undeb Amaethwyr Cymru yn cyrraedd copa’r Wyddfa er mwyn achosion da.

Members and staff from the Farmers Union of Wales have recently taken on the highest mountain in Wales and England, climbing six of the routes up Snowdon in twelve hours, all in the name of charity.  Some of those taking part in the fundraiser climbed the mountain three times in the twelve hours available, raising over £1300 for the Union’s President’s charities, Alzheimer’s Society Cymru and The Farming Community Network.  Well done to all involved!  

Yn ddiweddar bu aelodau a staff Undeb Amaethwyr Cymru’n herio’r mynydd uchaf yng Nghymru a Lloegr, gan ddringo chwech o’r llwybrau i gopa’r Wyddfa mewn deuddeg awr, a hynny i gyd i godi arian at achosion da. Roedd ambell un o’r rhai a gymerodd ran wedi dringo’r mynydd dair gwaith yn y deuddeg awr oedd ar gael, gan godi dros £1300 i elusennau Llywydd yr Undeb, Cymdeithas Alzheimer’s Cymru a’r Rhwydwaith Cymunedau Ffermio.  Da iawn bawb a gymerodd ran!
