Website Competition Winner

Spirit of the Miners set up a competition to name the miner you see on some of the pages of our website. The competition was open to anyone under the age of 16. The prize included a trip to Llywernog silver-lead mine museum and a meal at the Miners Arms in Pontrhydygroes.

After a number of suggestions the winning name was chosen as Iwan. The winner was Miriam Davies from the Pontrhydygroes area. Rather fitting Miriam's great grandfather was a former miner who worked at the nearby Frongoch mine.

Miriam and her family enjoyed a day out at Llywernog silver-lead mine, taking the opportunity to discover more by taking a walk around the miners trail and taking a trip on the underground tour. Miriam was presented with a certificate congratulating her on winning the prize. The weekend came to an end with a meal at the Miners Arms, Pontrhydygroes.

Thank you and congratulations once again to Miriam.
