Merched y Wawr Pencader a’r Cylch

The season started with a visit to the Craft Company Bodoli at Waungilwen at the end of September. Rhiannon, the owner spoke enthusiastically about establishing her business and we watched her create original and personalised frames with the pebbles and crafts. Over a cup of tea we had the opportunity to view her creative frames and other crafts as well as ordering and buying items.Gwyneth Alban, our President thanked Rhiannon for a very entertaining evening and wished her well for the future. The winner of the raffle was Ina Morgan. It was good to welcome two new members – Maud Evans and Janet Jones.

On October 31st we visited Gwinllan Llaethliw Vineyard at Neuadd Lwyd near Aberaeron. Siw the owner, with her sister Lena guided us through the history of establishing the Vineyard and the hard work of producing the red, white and rosê wines. The story of the Ship Llaethliw and how it came to be the logo of the Company was also very interesting. Gwyneth, our president thanked Siw and Lena for a very entertaining evening and for the opportunity to taste the wines. She wished the Welsh, West Wales based Vineyard well for the future. We completed the evening with a light buffet at The Feathers Hotel, Aberaeron and a short business meeting.
