Bangor Mail - - YOUR COMMUNITY -

GWILYM and Sally Lloyd Davies will be open­ing their gar­den and wood­lands at Hen­blas, Llan­gris­ti­o­lus, An­gle­sey for the seven­teenth year to raise money for can­cer char­i­ties. Each year their snow­drops her­ald the start of spring and are a wel­come sight to many vis­i­tors.

Sev­eral mem­bers of their fam­ily and friends have suf­fered and even lost their lives due to can­cer-re­lated dis­eases and they have al­ways wanted to as­sist re­search and find ways to erad­i­cate can­cer.

This year it is planned to do­nate to both Can­cer Re­search UK and Teno- vus Can­cer Care UK. Since re­tir­ing, Sally has also worked for the Ten­ovus Can­cer Care shop in Llangefni.

Since they have started hav­ing this an­nual event they have raised over £53,000.

Vis­i­tors young and old can walk along marked paths in the wood­land to ad­mire the drifts of snow­drops and after can en­joy tea/cof­fee and de­li­cious cakes. Pot­ted snow­drops are also for sale.

Dogs are wel­come but as it is the lamb­ing sea­son all dogs MUST be kept on a lead.

It has be­come quite an an­nual event for the peo­ple in the area and from fur­ther afield, many com­ing year after year and each year some lo­cal busi­nesses have as­sisted with do­na­tions and ser­vices.

Hen­blas gar­den and wood­lands will be open two week­ends; Fe­bru­ary 10-11 and Fe­bru­ary 17-18 from 11am to 4pm. Welling­ton/strong boots are rec­om­mended.

Di­rec­tions: Exit 6 off A55 then A5 to Rhostre­hwfa. Turn left onto B4422 to Aber­fraw. After 1.5 mile Hen­blas is on the left.
