St David's Day 2023

Brainwaves & Ports Past and Present Teams Celebrating St. David's Day 2023

There’s nothing more Welsh than St. David’s Day, the feast and celebration that falls on March 1st and commemorates the patron saint of Wales, Saint David. 


In colaboration with the Ports Past and Present Team we celebrated St. David's Day 2023 in style, even with homemade Welsh Cakes!!!!

St. David, a famous teacher and the founder of what is today St. David’s Cathedral, was famed for his pious austerity and his ability to perform miracles.

Many miracles are ascribed to St. David, including the resurrection of a dead child and the restoration of sight to a blind man. One of the more famous miracles associated with him is the formation of a hill beneath him as he preached to a large crowd, allowing them to see and hear him more clearly.

His last words to his followers before his death are thought to have been: "Be joyful, keep the faith and do the little things that you have heard and seen me do." The phrase gwenwch y pethau bychain mewn bywyd which means 'Do the little things in life' is still a well-known phrase in Wales.
