Organised in partnership with Natural Resources Wales, the Llynfi Woodland Group held a time capsule celebration event with the theme ‘Llynfi past, Llynfi present and Llynfi future’ at the ‘Ysbryd y Llynfi’/’Spirit of the Community Woodland’ site in Maesteg.
Funded by the Welsh Government Nature Fund with support from Ford Motor Company and as part of the Llynfi 20 Project, many people from various groups, organisations and schools braved the rain to celebrate past and present achievements of the valley and to make contributions into the capsule. Chris Elmore MP, Maesteg Mayor Idris Williams and members of the local Fire and Rescue Service also attended the event.
Assembly Member Huw Irranca-Davies who was at the event said: “The rain never stopped but it was delightful to join the Spirit of Llynfi Woodland Group Volunteers and others, for the Llynfi Time Capsule Celebration event. A great idea from BAVO providing an opportunity to celebrate past and present achievements of the valley.
I have been a big supporter of the woodland project since its conception and I’m sure this site will develop and attract people from further afield as well.”
