Farmhouse breakfast week a success in Gwent

A warm welcome and mouth-watering smells greeted those who joined the Gwent breakfast functions, which have been organised as part of the FUW’s Farmhouse breakfast week campaign (January 21 – January 27).

The Gwent  events were held on Tuesday, 22 January at Trevine Farm, Treadam, Thursday, 24 January at The Beech Tree Hotel, Ystrad Mynach, Hengoed (Joint with FUW Glamorgan), as well as on Friday, 25 January at Ty Oakley Farm, Hafodyrynys.   

“It was about showcasing the most important meal of the day in a bid to raise awareness of the health and nutritional benefits of breakfast and the huge variety of top quality farm produce available in Wales – ranging from bacon, sausages and eggs to speciality dairy products, breads and cereals. We loved having everyone there and I thank all those who supported us this year either by cooking, sponsoring produce or helping us raise money for our worthy charities ,” said FUW Gwent CEO Glyn Davies.

The breakfasts raised a fantastic amount of money for the FUW President’s charity appeal -  a total of £830 - with all the proceeds being split between Alzheimer’s Society Cymru and Farming Community Network.

“It was great to have members and friends of the Union coming together,  being a part of what we do, and sharing their thoughts and worries about the state of the industry, telling us their stories and helping us to understand how we can help each other. What better way to do that than round a table where we share great food and have a cup of tea. I’m already looking forward to next year’s breakfast events,” added Glyn Davies.
