St. David's Day is celebrated on March 1st every year in Wales to honour the patron saint of Wales, Saint David, who was a 6th-century Welsh bishop. It is a day of national pride and a celebration of Welsh culture and heritage. Many people across Wales wear daffodils or leeks, both national emblems of Wales, and attend special church services, parades, and cultural events.
Traditional Welsh food and drink, such as Welsh cakes and Welsh rarebit, are also enjoyed. St. David's Day is an important day for Welsh people around the world, as it allows them to come together and celebrate their shared identity and history.
Our very talented head Chef James was very busy on Wednesday which was St. David's Day, creating a fine menu of not only traditional but also extremely delicious meals today. A beautiful Lamb Cawl, leek and potato soup, Welsh Cakes and Bara Brith were enjoyed by our residents and family visitors that celebrated in our private dining rooms today.
Our very talented residents were very busy making decorations for the home, enjoying stories about growing up in the different towns and villages of our beautiful Wales, telling us how life was back then and how very proud to be Welsh they are.
Shauna, our Receptionist has been greeting our visitors today with a proud display of locally grown daffodils which is getting everyone excited for spring.
Anyone for Welsh Bingo? Our Manager Kath and Head Housekeeper Kerhys make the prettiest daffodil bingo callers! Or maybe not!
The day would not have been complete celebrating St. David’s Day without a song. It’s just one of the many talents of our residents at Tŷ Llandaff. Beautiful Welsh Song resonating the building.
Tŷ Llandaff looks forward to celebrating Easter next and has lots of exciting things planned, so watch this space!
