Ystradgynlais Volunteer Centre attended the usual quartet of Summer shows: Libanus over the August Bank Holiday, and in September the Sennybridge and Ystradfellte Agricultural Shows, and the Sleeping Giant Foundation's Owain Glyndŵr Festival over the weekend of the 17th-18th September.
Here you can see the YVC's stand at the Owain Glyndŵr Festival (photograph by Bob Grainger).
The Volunteer Centre stall at the Ystradfellte Agricultural Show. This year it was rather wet and windy, but the weather cleared up over the course of the day and the event proved popular and entertaining.

Ystradgynlais Volunteer Centre had a large stand at this year's Sennnybridge Agricultural Show, with two linked gazebo and a large display area out front for the large items manufactured by the Woodstore. Here you can see some of these, including a Japanese style bridge for the garden, and a throne which proved very useful during the course of the day!
