Fun Evening in Tre-Ifan playing fields, Caergeiliog 11th June 2008
Even   though   the   rain   poured   down   on   us   all,   it   didn't   dampen   the atmosphere    or    stop    us    all    enjoying    ourselves.    We    had    two competitive   football   matches,   Clwb   y   Drindod   v   The   Blues   and The Young Ones v The Oldies. The   Clwb   y   Drindod   v   The   Blues   match   finished   at   3-3   at   full   time and   Clwb   y   Drindod   won   on   penalties   3-2.   The   Young   Ones   v   The Oldies   match   finished   at   4-4   at   full   time,   went   to   penalties   and The Young   Ones   won   on   'Sudden   Death'.   The   Oldies   team   donated their runners up trophy to the Reverend for his wonderful goal! On   the   night,   £106   was   raised   for   St.   David's   Church   Caergeiliog, £218 for the playing field and £55 for Clwb y Drindod, Bryngwran.

The Valley Playgroup
The    Valley    Playgroup    have    visited    us twice   recently.   On   25th   June   they   came for   a   visit   to   St.   Michael's   church   to   look around.   They   had   a   story   and   sang   a song,   then   went   into   the   centre   for   milk and biscuits.
On   the   16th   July   they   visited   us   again for   their   Sports   Day   which   was   held   in the   Rectory   garden.   The   sun   came   out for   us   and   kept   dry.   Everybody   had   a lovely   time   and   the   garden   was   busy with   parents   and   grandparents   coming to support.
Each     child     received     stickers after    each    race    and    then    a certificate   and   medal   at   the   end for taking part.
