GreenWood Forest Park’s Marketing and Events Director Andrea Bristow had this to say about the upcoming event,  “We are very much looking forward to the Cyw takeover at Gelli Gyffwrdd / GreenWood and we are hoping that the event will be a great success. I feel that, as we are right in the middle of the Welsh speaking heartland, Cyw’s visit to Gelli Gyffwrdd will be tremendously popular.”

Sioned Wyn Roberts, S4C’s Children’s Content Commissioner said, “We are very excited to be holding this special Cyw day at Gelli Gyffwrdd / GreenWood this Easter. Children love Cyw, the presenters and the characters, and it’s great to be able to host a day like this one which gives Cyw’s fans a chance to join in the fun.”
