Gwarchodfa Natur Cynffig


Ddydd Mercher 19 Awst 2009 ymunodd yr Academi, Venture Out Pen-y-bont ar Ogwr a Datblygu’r Celfyddydau Pen-y-bont ar Ogwr i fwynhau taith gymunedol yng Ngwarchodfa Natur Cynffig.

Cafodd tri deg dau o oedolion a phlant hwyl yn crwydro o amgylch Cynffig gyda’r awdur Robert Minhinnick a’r arlunydd Chris Morgan. Buont yn casglu lluniau trwy ddefnyddio cyfryngau digidol wrth gerdded, ac yn siarad am eu symudiadau a’r meddyliau a gâi eu hysgogi gan natur a hanes y warchodfa.

Mwynhaodd y grŵp bryd bys a bawd a sgwrs am hanes Cynffig yn nhafarn y Prince of Wales. Yna buont yn gweithio gyda Robert Minhinnick i greu nifer fechan o ddarnau creadigol. Caiff seinlun o’r diwrnod ei chwarae yn yr Arddangosfa Forluniau ym Mhafiliwn Mawr Porth-cawl ym mis Medi 2009.

Gwaith ysgrifennu a grëwyd ar y diwrnod:

My Favourite Place

Mari Evans

My favourite place is Oakwood because of all of the fast rides. When you come through the gates you cans ee the very tall rides like Bounce, where you can’t see the end. My Favourite rides are Treetops and Megaphobia. I’ve been on all of the rides (except Speed and Vertigo). I leave Oakwood slowly because I never want to leave.

Chelsea Flower Show

The flowers and shows and plants are out of this world. All the work that has gone into things. You are in a different world. For me, I am at home with everything there is to see and do. When I get there I never want to go back to my garden, it’s not the same. But I learn a lot and my garden can and will be as good.

By the way, I have never been to the flower show, but I intend to go.

Gwalia Store

Gwalia Store once situated at Ogmore Vale, now at St Fagans.

I used to stand outside this store as a child, admiring the tools etc. on display and the smell of all the food inside the shop.

Adjacent to the store ran the railway line and the steam locos fascinated me.

Whenever I think of the Ogmore Valley, I recall all these moments.

Warner Beach


Stuck between the lifeguard station and the beach café, a small group of friends, surfers, Afrikaners, in-betweeners. Not accepted, but not rejected. Hand drawn t-shirts ‘’cause we are unique, set apart.

Remember the taste of a quarter loaf.

Life back into my shivering limbs,

energy pushed to the brink as wave after wave washes my mind clean.

Scars remain as medals on my heart

This is where friends were made and

Enemies redeemed

You were my first love and

You will always be my last

Warner Beach, always in my heart.
