A Taste Of Wales In Chelford

Daffodils (cennin Pedr), leeks (cennin) and red dragons (dreigiau coch) dominated Sunday's Chelford Church service, held in Chelford School.

To mark St David's Day (Dydd Gŵyl Dewi) on March 1st, the Welsh-themed service on March 5th featured a selection of Welsh hymns, a Welsh quiz by local Welsh speaker Andy Gildon, a talk about the life of St David — and plenty of Welsh cakes (cacennau cri) and bara brith (speckled bread).

Chelford Brownies read the prayers and Guide Rose Mentham provided the Bible reading. The girls also handed out bunches of daffodils to everyone in the congregation.

After the service, the congregation shared birthday cake and glasses of bubbly with Vicar Gerri Tetzlaff, whose birthday was on March 4th.

A different-themed 'church' service is held in Chelford School on the first Sunday of every month, with particular emphasis on activities for children, followed by coffee and home-made cake.
