May 2015

Members and friends travelled to YSGWRN, the home of poet Hedd Wyn in Trawsffynydd, where we were met by Gerwyn Evans, who had lived there until 5 years ago. He gave a very vivid account of the house and the Evan’s family who had lived there. It was like stepping back in time a century or so, very atmospheric. The 5 Bardic chairs were on view, including the Black chair from the Birkenhead Eisteddfod, which Hedd Wyn won postumously during the First World War.

A lunch was enjoyed at the Rhiw Goch Hotel, where Muriel thanked Margaret Searson and Alice Hughes for their support over the last year. She also thanked Alice for arranging such a wonderful day, enjoyed by all.
