Fu­ture is bright for show

Caernarfon Herald - - NEWS -

NEXT year, Meiri­on­nydd Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety cel­e­brates its 150th an­niver­sary and, if this year’s show is any­thing to go by, it will do so in rude health.

Un­der scud­ding clouds, warm sun­shine and a cool­ing coastal breeze, Glyn­dwr Davies and his Ty­wyn or­gan­is­ing team staged an­other pic­turesque show at Hendy, Pall Mall and Ys­gu­bo­riau farms last Wednesday. “Ev­ery­one was happy to es­cape the rainy sea­son,” said show sec­re­tary Doug Pow­ell.

“It was an ex­cel­lent show, with a good turn-out of both ex­hibitors and visi­tors. We were very pleased to be back in Ty­wyn and we can now look for­ward to the 2018 show and the so­ci­ety’s 150th an­niver­sary.”
