Show Ambassador

Anglesey Show Ambassador 2024

Manon Wyn Rowlands


An Island girl, I was brought up a stone's throw away from the Anglesey Showground in the village of Bodffordd. There I received my early education before moving on to education at Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni. Then, when deciding to study further I chose to study Welsh at the college near the flow in Aberystwyth. There I had three years to remember.

I am now a full-time teacher and enjoy teaching young children in the reception class at Ysgol y Graig, Llangefni.

In my spare time I like to wander and walk new places, be creative and crafty when sewing and above all what takes up a large part of my time is being a very keen member of Rhosybol Young Farmers Club. It is a privilege for me to be the fourth generation to be part of this special club. I have been a member of the club for thirteen years and the memories are sweet, precious, and very successful. The Club have been a good foundation for me to gain confidence whether to speak in public, to perform on Welsh stages such as the Eisteddfod or even to judge stock at the Royal Show. I cannot stress enough the value of the organization as it offers endless experiences to all ages, all abilities, and all types of different interests.
During my time as a member, I have been fortunate enough to be Chairman and Secretary of the Club, vice-chairman of the Anglesey Training Committee and now this year chairman of the Training Committee.
Although I am not a girl who lives on a farm, agriculture is very close to my heart. I had many experiences with my Grandfather on the farm. I have attended the Anglesey Show or 'Primin' as I will always call it. It's an annual tradition and the pinnacle of the summer holidays and there's certainly no way to miss the Anglesey Show. It is a great honour for me to be chosen to be an Ambassador for the Society this year and to have the opportunity to lend a hand and share my ideas with the extremely active committee. Certainly, the Show has developed rapidly and flourished as changes such as 'Y Cowt' have come forward recently.
This year's 'Primin' will be one to remember and I am really looking forward to wandering around the stallholders, the exhibitors and having a chat with familiar faces.
I would like to extend my thanks to the Society for having the opportunity to accept this invaluable role, to the volunteers for their help to ensure the success and running of the Show and then to the audience for being so willing to support the Show year after year. I wish the Anglesey Show and the Winter Show the best of luck this year and into the future. An exciting period is on the horizon as we see the Show modernize.
