THERE were smiles all round at Fishguard Bay Hotel last week (February 11), when Goodwick Brass Band and Sea Trust were presented with fundraising cheques.

The money was raised through a Hen Galan (Old New Year) concert held at St Peter’s Church, Goodwick on January 10.

The service was led by Reverend Barnes, who welcomed the participation of Cor Abergwaun, Goodwick Brass Band and children from Ysgol Wdig and Ysgol Llanychllwydog.

The concert was arranged by eight local groups, including the Lions, the Inner Wheel, Soroptimists, Round Table, Merched y Wawr, 41 Club, Cymrodorion and Tangent, which was responsible for a reading about the customs of Hen Galan according to the Julian calender.

Refreshments were provided by POINT after the service and the Deputy Mayoress, Rhian Lloyd gave the closing thanks.
