A NEAR 100-year-old tradition has been revived as Aberporth celebrates Dydd Iau Mawr today.

In 1929 a bilingual declaration was written, confirming that the village Welfare Park belongs to the people of Aberporth.

The handwritten proclamation is meant to be read out each year on Dydd Iau Mawr - the second Thursday in August.

But over the years the tradition has lapsed - until today when local county councillor Clive Davies read it out at the start of the Dydd Iau Mawr festivities.

Village Hall chairman Mike Harwood said: "It's important to remember the long history of the village hall and welfare council - especially as we are now on the verge of building our new village hall."
