Like many people, I was shocked by news of the vandalism of the slogan “Cofiwch Dryweryn.”
This rock and the slogan have iconic and historic significance for us in Wales and I was concerned that the rock had been daubed and the slogan defaced.
However, prompt action has meant that it has now been repainted and the slogan restored.
I very much welcome the restoration of this important part of our cultural history to its previous state.
I know too that the community of Llanrhystud, together with the National Trust, is raising funds to protect this iconic symbol. This should help to protect this monument in the long term and that is very good news.
