Congratulations to ‘Urdd Gobaith Cymru’ who are celebrating their 100th anniversary today!
‘Urdd Gobaith Cymru’ is a National Voluntary Youth Organisation with over 55,000 members between the ages of 8 – 25 years old.
The organisation provides opportunities through the medium of Welsh for children and young people in Wales, enabling them to make positive contributions to their communities.
Our ‘Gweithdy’ building in Minffordd was formerly owned by the Penrhyndeudraeth branch of ‘Urdd Gobaith Cymru’.
The Urdd logo was recently uncovered inside when a storage rack was removed, during restoration work carried out on the building by the Ffestiniog Railway.
Our team cut out, cleaned, varnished and mounted the logo in a frame, and it now proudly hangs as a memoir to the Urdd’s previous tenure.
We look forward to celebrating the ‘Urdd Gobaith Cymru’ centenary later in the year, watch this space..!
