URDD GOBAITH CYMRU

Treuddyn has always been very proud of the fact that the first branch of Urdd Gobaith Cymru ( a Welsh league of youth) was formed here, due to the vision and enthusiasm of Marion E Williams of Llan Farm (near St Mary’s Church), in 1922.

A plaque was presented by Treuddyn Community Council to mark the occasion of the 75th anniversary in 1997.  This can be seen on the wall of Llan farm – Urdd.

The Urdd has gone from strength to strength as a national entity, and still holds an annual national eisteddfod as well as running camps for sporting activities and socialising.  Now it is National and there are 15,000 participants each year –
the National Urdd Eisteddfod will be taking place in Flint in 2016.

This year gives reason to celebrate, since it has continued to flourish for 90 years.

Treuddyn celebrated the Urdd’s achievements when it was 50, 70 and 75 years old, when a portfolio of activities, original members, etc was collected. We are keen to display this memorabilia again – were you on the committee responsible for the celebrations in 1992 or 1997?  If so, or if you have a keen interest in helping us to stage an exhibition during this year, please contact Mary Roberts 770219 or Ceinwen Paryy 771333.

Hywel Gwynfryn from BBC Radio Cymru interviewed Ceinwen Parry about the information of the first branch of Urdd Gobaith Cymru, in Treudddyn 90 years ago.  The programme was transmitted on Radio Cymru, Saturday, January 28th
