2020 Marches On!

1st March is St. David’s Day – Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant.

This is the feast day of Saint David, the patron saint of Wales, and the date of his death in 589 AD. The feast has been regularly celebrated since the canonisation of David in the 12th century. Traditionally, the Welsh costume is worn along with either leeks or daffodils.

Legend suggests that Welsh archers fought and won a battle against the French in a field of leeks. They then took to wearing them in their caps on St. David's Day to remember their bravery and so it became a national symbol, made ever more popular in recent times by Max Boyce. 

The wearing of a daffodil is a more recent tradition made popular by David Lloyd George.

Come to the Trefeddian and enjoy a celebratory traditional Sunday lunch with a Welsh twist. Served in the dining room from 12.30pm with stunning views over Cardigan Bay, booking is always advisable. So pick up the telephone and give us a call on 01654 767213.  

In the evening, you will hear the dulcet tones of the traditional Welsh choir echoing from the main lounge as they serenade residents and non-resident alike. The concert begins at 9pm and last for about an hour, so come along and enjoy this treat to finish the day off in style.

We look forward to seeing you and saying "Iechyd da" ("Cheers!") as we raise a glass to the glorious Welsh.
