Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views -

A MAN who won a top prize at this year’s Na­tional Eisteddfod in Cardiff will be or­dained into the Gorsedd at next year’s event.

Rhy­dian Jenk­ins won the Aled Lloyd Davies Award in the Unawd Cerdd Dant Blue Rib­bon com­pe­ti­tion for ages 21 and over.

By win­ning this prize, Rhy­dian will be or­dained into the Gorsedd at next year’s Na­tional Eisteddfod in Llan­r­wst, Conwy, where he will wear the white robe.

Rhy­dian also came sec­ond in the Lady Her­bert Me­mo­rial Award, which was the Folk Song Solo Blue Rib­bon com­pe­ti­tion for ages 21 and over.

Rhy­dian would like to thank Ann Fox for her sup­port and guid­ance and for two mem­o­rable cerdd dant com­po­si­tions that en­abled him to win this pres­ti­gious award.

It is also very fit­ting that in Llan­r­wst at the 1989 Na­tional Eisteddfod, Ann her­self was or­dained into the Gorsedd for win­ning the same com­pe­ti­tion.

Rhy­dian also thanks Eleri Roberts, Kim Lloyd Jones, Lau­ren Phillips and Adrian Thomp­son for their con­tin­ued sup­port, tu­ition and friend­ship.

Out­side of the Eisteddfod, Rhy­dian is a past pupil of Ys­gol Cyn­wyd Sant and Ys­gol Gy­fun Gym­raeg Llang­y­n­wyd, and he has re­cently grad­u­ated from Cardiff Univer­sity with a BA Hon­ours in Welsh.
