Menter Bro Ogwr’s Welsh Festival ends with good-bye to our Youth Officer – Yasmin Morris







Menter Bro Ogwr’s Welsh Festival Week has come to an end with everyone enjoying the many events that took place. Thank you very much to everyone who has supported us; children, young people and adults.

These events would not be possible without the preperation, organization and dedication of the whole team of Menter Bro Ogwr and the support of volunteers who gave their time to ensure the events went off with a bang!

We also finish our week saying goodbye to our Youth Officer Yasmin Morris. Yasmin will start in her new position with Menter Abertawe next week. In the short time that Yasmin has been with Menter Bro Ogwr she has left her mark on the organisation and will be sadly missed. We wish her the best of luck in her new position. Good luck and thank you very much.


An Overnight Trip to Amelia Trust Farm

On the 29th of May 2014, we went on an overnight trip to Ameila Trust Farm with 12 children. The children had two days of fun and games on the farm participating in a range of activities, like leaf hunt, sports, visiting the animals, creating mud faces, cooking cookies, and lots more.

 It was a wet day when we arrived at the farm, but with wellies and rain coats on, the rain didn’t stop the children from having fun exploring the farm and wandering through the forestry. It was an experience for them to stay overnight at the farm without their parents, but everyone enjoyed.

 It was a pleasure to have the children and to see them enjoying the experience. Thank you for attending and we look forward to Menter Bro Ogwr’s future trips.
