Embassy Glyndŵr fully supports national patriotic commemorations of the tragic events of December 1282. As a body, we are not, ourselves involved in the organisation of commemorative events but fully support those who do - and this year, we must, in particular, draw your attention to the fact that a commemorative event is now being organised annually in Gwynedd. This year, the Gwynedd event is on Sunday the 9th of December. At 11am, wreaths will be laid at the foot of the Llywelyn memorial outside Gwynedd County Offices, Caernarfon. Following the wreath laying at Caernarfon, a commemorative ceremony will be held at Llys Rhosyr, in the remains of Llywelyn's court on the outskirts of Niwbwrch (Newborough) Sir Fôn. Those of you wishing to attend should gather outside the insitute in Niwbwrch at 1.45pm.

For further information on 1282 commemorative events, see the COFIWN archive blog at http://Cofiwn.blogspot.com/

I myself was involved in 1282 commemorations throughout the 70's and into the mid 80's and am currently working on what will be a very interesting and informative DVD version of the COFIWN story. Keep looking in to this blog for further news on this.
