         Happy St David’s Day

A Daffodil or leek (Saint David’s personal symbol) are the Welsh symbols worn with pride on this day. The association between leeks and daffodils is strengthened by the fact that they have similar names in Welsh, Cenhinen (leek) and Cenhinen Pedr (daffodil, literally “Peter’s leek”).

Noson Cawl a Chân (Cawl & Song Evening) will be held in many villages throughout Pembrokeshire, cawl a dish of meat and vegetables is prepared and served with caws (cheese) and bara (bread).  School children dress in the traditional Welsh Costume and take part in school concerts or eisteddfodau.
