Cymdeithas Aredig Ynys Mon
Anglesey Vintage Ploughing Society
During 1998 a group of friends came together with the view to re-kindle the ploughing matches on the island after a break of twenty five years. Following lengthy discussions, it was resolved to establish a Society.
After electing officials, the way forward was to acquire land to stage the event. The committee had a lot of work in raising the funds, however due to the readiness of local businesses willing to sponsor the event, the money was raised.
The committee were also able to aquire the original cups and trophies which were used as perpetual cups during the matches held years ago.
We continue to have a dedicated working committee and continue to hold matches yearly and are very succesful. We meet once a month at a local hotel (Gadlys Hotel, Cemaes Bay) at 8pm, which is ideal, as soon as the committee comes to an end, we are able to realx over a pint or two! Feel free to come along new members always welcome.
