On Easter Sunday and Monday Llandefalle Young Farmers Club hosted a Daffodil Festival in Saint Matthew’s Church, Llandefalle.

A vast and varied array of floral arrangements and daffodils made from a variety of mediums were on display for visitors to enjoy.

The festival began with a church service in which many of the YFC members participated. This was then followed by an enjoyable Easter egg hunt. Throughout the rest of the event YFC members and helpers from the local community served drinks and cakes, and children had fun taking part in the craft activities on offer.

The event was made possible due to the YFC securing a PAVO grant in October 2021.

The aim of the grant was to encourage teenagers and young adults in the area to volunteer and give some of their time to a good cause.

As part of the grant the YFC members planted daffodil bulbs in the local community. The next stage of the project was to make as many daffodils as possible to decorate Saint Matthews Church, Llandefalle.

It soon became a community project and lots of people from near and far got involved. The local craft group in particular were instrumental in the project, which provided opportunities for cross generations to work together.

The YFC officers and members have been overwhelmed by the kindness of many people in helping to make this festival a success and would like to say a huge thankyou to everyone who has contributed or supported the event.

The day was a resounding success which succeeded expectations, raising in excess of £1,400 - which is to be shared between the YFC and the church.
