Pleidleisiwch dros y dderwen / Vote for Pwllpriddog oak

I bleidleisio, ewch i’r linc ar waelod  –  To Vote, go to the link at the bottom

Pwllpriddog Oak, Rhandirmwyn, Blaenau Tywi

Coeden Gymreig y Flwyddyn, 2018  /  Woodland Trust – Tree of the Year, 2018

Standing in a hedgerow just outside the quiet village of Rhandirmwyn in Carmarthenshire, this tree is a giant, with a girth of some 8.4 metres. Some have estimated it to be 600-700 years old, while local historians believe it was planted to commemorate the Battle of Bosworth. It is reputed to have been the hiding place of a king; the local pub is known as the Royal Oak, after all.

The tree is hollow, and there are a number of YouTube clips of bands and choirs singing inside it.

Many years ago it is understood to be a meeting place for local lovers. The farm used it as the shelter for the pig and now the ducks from the current owner roost and hatch in the branches.

Cynhaeafu coed Merchon, Gwenlais a Neuadd – Timber Harvesting in Merchon, Gwenlais and Neuadd woods

Timber Harvesting in Merchon, Gwenlais and Neuadd woods

Over the next few months a local company, Cothi Harvesting Ltd, will be harvesting timber in the Natural Resources Wales woods to the north of Cilycwm via Penstacan lane.  As a gesture of goodwill, Alun Williams, on behalf of Cothi Harvesting Ltd, has made a donation of £1,000 to the local charity, Menter Cilycwm, towards the Capel y Groes Community Hall project.  Whist the harvesting and transport of timber through Cilycwm will increase traffic through the village, both the contractors and transporters – Steve Pope Transport Ltd – wish to minimise the disruption to villagers lives.   Their kind donation is an indication of their wish to work sympathetically within the community, and Steve Pope has indicated his wish to also contribute in the future.

Cynhaeafu coed Merchon, Gwenlais a Neuadd.

Dros y misoedd mae cwmni lleol, sef Cothi Harvesting Ltd, yn bwriadu torri coedydd CNC i’r gogledd o Gilycwm.  Fel arwydd o ewyllys da mae’r cwmni wedi cyflwyno rhodd o £1,000 i’r elusen, Menter Cilycwm, tuag at brosiect y Ganolfan Cymunedol yng Nghapel y Groes.  Tra’n anorfod bydd yna gynydd yn y trafnidiaeth trwy’r pentref, mae’r contractwyr, a’r Cludwyr – Steve Pope Transport Ltd – yn awyddus i gadw’r ymyraeth i’r gymuned cyn lleied a phosibl.  Mae’r rhodd caredig yn arwydd o’i dymuniad i weithredu gydag ymdeimlad a’r gymuned, ac mae Steve Pope wedi ymrwymo i gyfrannu yn yr un modd yn y dyfodol.
