Just over three weeks until the tionol!

We are pleased to announce that the most excellent Soul Spice vegan curry stall in Pontypridd Market will be catering Saturday lunch for all the pipers and fiddlers.

If people could confirm their attendance with us ahead of time that would be appreciated as it will help us organise the lunch.

Thanks
Rick
