The last few months have been busy on the farm with a number of Christmas events plus the opening of the new cafe on the site by Sochyn Crimp. 2015 is looking ahead to be a busy year with a host of events planned including for the third year the Folk on the Farm festival in July and Summer Fair which will be held on June 20th, both of which are growing to be incredibly popular events. Also planned for May this year following last year’s popular Tales of the Brothers Grimm walk is Tyddyn Môn’s contribution to the Anglesey Walking Festival with a Pied Piper themed walk around the farm. These events along with others that are sure to be taking place in the coming months are making 2015 a year to look forward too. If you would like to receive this newsletter in Welsh in the future please contact us via the details on the back or by ticking Welsh on the recently distributed contact information letters. Christmas Jumper Day On the 12th of December trainees and staff took part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day. The day was started three years ago to help raise money and support the work of the charity Save the Children, which helps save and make the lives of children better around the world. This is the first year that Tyddyn Môn have taken part in the event and the turn out was great with many of the trainees taking part and wearing their Christmas jumpers, we would like to thank everyone that participated and donated towards the cause, we managed to raise nearly £40 from donations which will be matched by the UK government who have pledged to double what was made nationally on the day. A donation to Save the Children will also be made by Tyddyn Môn this year instead of sending out Christmas cards. 1 Tyddyn Môn Newsletter - Jan/ Feb 2015
