Fun in the Sun

Plas Y Dderwen had a wild and wonderful day on their recent open day. The fun started when the homes' General Manager and Deputy Manager crazily ventured into a bath of gooey cold beans, however, it was not as bad as they were hosed down by the fire brigade.

The next challenge they faced was to eat Locusts, kindly supplied by Bug Farm St David’s. It was a really fun day, attended by residents, staff, family members and the local community.
