Friends and Groups That Support Broneirion
Friends of Broneirion
Friends of Broneirion was established in 1968 and its purpose is threefold.
Support Girlguiding Cymru in relation to its centre at Broneirion, by making donations from its fundraising.
Promote membership of ‘Friends of Broneirion’ throughout Girlguiding and the wider community.
Provide opportunities for Friends to visit Broneirion.
Over the years, Friends have funded the refurbishment of the dining room, library and drawing room and helped buy much-needed items for the house. Over the past three years, Friends have raised £15,000 to support Girlguiding Cymru’s “Vision Project”, from which we purchased outdoor equipment for the girls, which included a zip wire!
We enjoy activities together!
At Easter, Friends help at the Easter Food Fayre. Recently we made delicious pancakes and sold knitted Easter chicks. Our Easter Egg Hunt is an attraction for local children.
In July 2014 we celebrated the ‘150 years of Broneirion’, when we enjoyed a weekend with fellow “Friends” and the Llandinam community. Who could have anticipated the delight of local children as they met and chatted to Queen Victoria? Parents and children alike enjoyed the Punch and Judy show, whilst others took part in circus skills. Our annual “Friends’ Gathering” brought us together from all over the U.K. The Thanksgiving Service on Sunday at St Llonio’s Church in Llandinam provided a fitting end to our Victorian weekend.
When December arrived, the Friends’ Christmas Weekend saw almost 200 children visit Santa in his grotto, as Broneirion was transformed into a winter wonderland. A towering Wellingtonia was bedecked with streams of light to become the tallest living lit Christmas tree in Wales. An amazing weekend full of Christmas warmth and friendship.
