YM MIS Mawrth, buom yn ardal Cwm Cuch gyda Howard Williams i’n harwain. Gan gychwyn wrth dafarn y Nag’s Head, aethom ar daith gylch ar hen stad Clynfyw. Roedd Howard wedi paratoi taflen o nodiadau am nodweddion diddorol y daith i bawb, a chawsom fwynhau llwybr y Cerfluniau, eirlysiau wrth y miloedd, golygfa dda i lawr ar Afon Cych a’r Cwm, a chlywed am gysylltiadau â’r Mabinogi, hanes y stad a’r hen ardd furiedig. Aeth llawer ohonom i gael croeso a lluniaeth yn Nhafarn y Nag’s Head ar ôl cerdded. Taith hyfryd eto, ac roedd yn dda gweld rhai cerddwyr newydd yn ymuno â ni. Fis Ebrill 9fed, bydd Reg Davies yn arwain taith yn ardal Dinas ac Aber-bach.
Cychwynnwn o Faes Parcio Capel Tabor, Dinas (SN005 384 Cod post: SA42 0XG). O gyfeiriad Aberteifi, trowch i’r dde gyferbyn â lloches byses ar ôl mynd heibio’r troad i Bwllgwaelod). Dewch mewn da bryd i ddechrau ar y daith am 10:30, os gwelwch yn dda. Awn ar daith gylch ddwy awr, tua 2.5 milltir, ar lwybrau i fferm Tre-wrach, lawr lôn dawel a llwybr da i draeth Aber-bach ac yn ôl ar y lôn i ddychwelyd i’r Capel. Bydd un llecyn a all fod yn fwdlyd, dwy sticil, ac esgyniad o ryw 400 troedfedd, y rhan fwyaf ohono ar y ffordd yn ôl i’r Capel, sy’n eithaf serth ar y dechrau. Gallwn ddisgwyl daith brydferth, hanesyddol gydag ymweliad â pherl o draethell anghysbell.
Ac wedyn bydd cyfle i gael lluniaeth yn nhafarndai Trefdraeth a Dinas a hefyd yng nghaffi Flas Fronlas, Trefdraeth. Ym mis Mai, 14eg, cerddwn yn ardal Cwm Soden a Chastell Bach, ger Cwm Tydu, gan adael man parcio Eglwys Llandysiliogogo (SN363 572) (Cod post SA44 6LH), am 10.30yb. Howard Williams fydd yr arweinydd eto. Mae’r man parcio ryw 200 metr yn brin o Eglwys St Tysilio. O’r A487 rhwng Plwmp a Synod trowch i Gaerwedros, mynd trwy’r pentref a syth ymlaen, ar draws yr heol rhwng Llwyndafydd a Nanternis, tuag at Gwmtydu; ar ôl rhyw filltir trowch i’r dde tuag at yr eglwys.
Nid oes lle i fwy na rhyw 15 car ar y tir pwrpasol ond gallwn barcio’n ofalus hefyd ar y borfa ar hyd yr heolydd o bobtu’r gyffordd. Er hynny, fe fydd yn syniad da dod â chyn lleied o geir ag y bo modd, er enghraifft drwy gwrdd â gyrwyr eraill yng Nghwmtydu a rhannu ceir wrth fynd ymlaen. Dewch mewn da bryd i ddechrau fel arfer ar y daith am 10:30, os gwelwch yn dda. Awn ar daith gylch ddwy awr tua dwy filltir ar lwybrau da; dros gaeau i’r penrhyn i’r gogledd o Gwmtydu, ar lwybr yr arfordir i lawr i Draeth Cwm Soden (serth mewn mannau) ac wedyn lan y Cwm a’i lethr ddeheuol i’r Eglwys.
Bydd esgyniad o ryw 350 troedfedd, yn bennaf wrth ddringo’r llwybr serth gyda llawer o risiau ar y diwedd i gyrraedd yr eglwys. Wrth gerdded, cawn weld golygfeydd gwych o’r arfordir, blodau ar eu gorau, Castell Bach, caer amlwg o’r Oes Haearn, cwm prydferth, rhaeadrau annisgwyl, ac eglwys mewn llecyn hyfryd. Ac wedyn bydd cyfle i gael lluniaeth yn y Crown yn Llwyndafydd neu yn y Caffi yng Nghwmtydu. Fis Mehefin 11eg, cerddwn yn ardal Cilgerran a Llechryd gydag Emyr Phillips yn arwain, a hon fydd ein taith olaf y tymor hwn. Bydd croeso cynnes i bawb ar bob taith.

Time given to develop Parc Natur Penglais
VOLUNTEERS, including students, have given around 500 hours of their time to develop Parc Natur Penglais.
Along with support from Ceredigion County Council, the Group have built around 100 steps in 5 different places which has made the park a great place to walk, play and enjoy around a number of safe paths.
Councillor Mark Strong said: “Knowing that we have the support of the local community makes such a difference to peoples’ enthusiasm and having the grant from Aberystwyth Town Council, Cambrian News and Tesco made it possible. Volunteers can make a relatively small sum of money go long way.”
RSPCA aim for Christmas number one
MUSIC fans across Wales can help the RSPCA secure the Christmas number one slot, and provide vital support for animals in need across the country.
The animal welfare charity has thrown its hat into the ring to claim the festive chart accolade – as up-and-coming singer Lucy Ellie covers Simply Red’s hit song ’Stars’ in aid of the RSPCA.
‘Stars’ is the soundtrack to the charity’s ‘Kindness at Christmas’ video, which has already gone viral with over two million views online across a variety of platforms.
The tear-jerking video tells the story of Woody the Christmas toy pup who who is thrown out with the rubbish before being rescued and taken in for care by the RSPCA.
Proceeds from the single are being donated to the RSPCA to help in their work rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming thousands of animals every year.
RSPCA Cymru is again bracing itself for a busy festive period. In December 2016 and January 2017 alone, in Wales, 5,932 incidents were reported to the RSPCA – with 141 of these on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
Lucy Ellie Cooper, who works at the charity, said: “This was a lovely opportunity for me to combine my two loves – animals and music.
“Outside of my job at the RSPCA I am a country music singer and songwriter, so when the chance came up to record such a fantastic and well-known song for the charity’s Christmas video, I jumped at it. I really hope people will take Woody’s story into their hearts and support the RSPCA this winter.”
You can help the RSPCA rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals in desperate need of care, and support the charity’s ‘kindness’ campaign online
Charity games raise over £2000
NOT all heroes wear capes and Tesco Aberystwyth’s very own Community Champion, Natasha Worrall has proven this raising a staggering £2,096.27 for local and national charities.
Natasha, the brainchild behind the charity football events, came up with the idea first off by challenging Tesco’s neighbours, Marks and Spencer’s, to a football match, she quickly set her powers to work and contacted Aberystwyth Football club who were more than happy to help and allowed use of the pitch.
The Big Day arrived, there was a lot of tension and passion on the pitch that night, it was more than just about winning a match it was the status, the pride and most of all bringing people together to raise money for three great causes; Diabetes UK, British Heart Foundation and Mind. Hundreds of supporters braved the cold October evening to support the players and Tesco stole the show with a 7-1 victory and an amazing £607 was raised.
Natasha now had a taste of success under her cape and wanted to really get this event of the ground and challenged supermarket rivals, Morrisons to a match! The response for Tesco vs Morrisons was just what Natasha wanted and a November date was set.
Tesco now had experience in their boots and both teams had everything to play for. Victory once again went to Tesco who pipped Morrisons at the post and clawed back to a 5-4 victory raising a further £648.15 for Diabetes UK, British Heart Foundation and Clic Sargent.
In true football fashion Natasha wanted a hat trick but could Team Tesco achieve this? Last Sunday (Dec 3) seemed the perfect opportunity and the opponents who were up for the challenge came from Bronglais Hospital and their chosen charity Pila Pala, Llwyn yr Eos. What a match! And what great team to take victory, Hywel Dda 2 – Tesco – 0. A rematch could certainly be on the cards especially as they raised the biggest amount ever of £841.12.
Behind every success there is always great team and working with Natasha and the players a number of local heroes who helped, Ruth’s kitchen provided heroic meals for all the players for a £1 donation, Aberystwyth women’s Team loaned their footballs, the Referees, linesmen, stewards, security, first aiders and ball boys and girls who all donated their time free of charge.
Team Tesco are looking for more opponents to play and raise even more money for local charities, if you are interested please call into Tesco store and see Natasha.
