HARPER CYMRU: February Update

Harper Cymru Six Nations
"With most members living in a rural community, it is important that we get together to ensure everyone feels at home while being at university."

Beth mae aelodau Cymdeithas Cymraeg Prifysgol Harper Adams, Harper Cymru wedi bod wrthi yn gwneud dros yr wythnosau diwetha’?  (Heblaw astudio yn galed, wrth gwrs). Sara Edwards sy’n dod â’r diweddaraf.

What have the members of Harper Adams University’s Welsh Society, Harper Cymru, been up to over the last few weeks?  (other than studying hard, of course).  Sara Edwards brings us the latest.  

This month has been yet another busy month for the Harper Cymru members, with the first year students receiving exam results, second year students completing their assignments, and the fourth years are all working towards their dissertation.

Away from the studying, we made sure that we had a well-deserved break by joining together as a society to watch Wales play in the Six Nations. With most members living in a rural community, it is important that we get together to ensure everyone feels at home while being at university. 

Several of our Harper Cymru members attended the Dairy-Tech show held in Stoneleigh. They had a tremendously fulfilling day, expanding their knowledge on newly available dairy technology. Attending shows such as Dairy-Tech is important to us as students, enabling us to explore and discover possible career paths or technologies to bring back to our own farms. 

Along with ongoing studies and deadlines, we will meet as a society to watch the remainder of the Six Nations matches as well as for our fortnightly social meetings. The end of the month will see our past students and current placement students return for the prestigious weekend event of “Hobgoblins”. We will host a Harper Cymru meeting on the Friday night of the event to welcome back the alumni. There will be a number of events going on throughout the course of the weekend such as rugby fixtures where a number of past and present students will participate. The final evening of the event will see the return of the infamous band “The Worzels” to Harper for us all to enjoy their classic hits.

FARM LIFE: The Evans Family

One of the most productive farms in Ceredigion has to be Henbant, Talgarreg run by the Evans family. The farm has been in the Evans family for 100 years, currently run by Emyr and Edwina along with their son Eilir. After returning from 7 months farming in New Zealand some 20 years ago, Eilir shifted the farm’s focus to milk production on grazed grass.
