Radyr & Morganstown Festival

The Festival finished on Sunday, 20 May, with a wonderful “Memories” concert given by young singers.  A highlight of the event was the presentation by the R&M Association Chair, David Silver, of a cheque to Alzheimer’s Society Cymru for £18.5K, being the provisional sum raised by the R&M Community this year.  The final sum will be more.  We hope you enjoyed the events.  If you have any feedback or suggestions on any aspect, do get in touch.  There are lots of pictures now stored on the Festival Website.
