There is also an opportunity to visit the Cegin yr Hedyn stand to donate surplus fruit and vegetables which will go towards their appeal. For more information on this, please visit their website.

As part of the festivities, there will be a range of entertainment each Wednesday and Saturday, including live music, the Adran Ffynonddrain choir, and an appearance from Mrs Sian Corn, who will be available to take photographs with children.
