Cefnfab

 
 









 
 
I won my first trophy for speech at the age of 15 and since then they have accumulated to hundreds, which have been won throughout England and Wales. Cefnfab with Trophies & Cups

Writing is another of my interests and I have won four crowns for literature:  Powys Eisteddfod - Llanbrynmair 1993,  Newtown 1999, the Anglesey Eisteddfod  - Aberffraw, 2003 and Eisteddfodau Teulu James Pantyfedwen Pontrhydfendigaid, 2009.

Here are pictures from two of them.
