All Things Welsh Competition

The celebration of All Things Welsh will be a special celebration for Taff Rocks. After all, Taff Rocks has its home in the heart of Wales.  And ... What better day to celebrate it than the 1st of March! Otherwise known here, in Wales, as Saint David's Day, our patron saint.


As our way of celebrating all things Welsh, we are holding a competition of painted rocks depicting anything Welsh. From leeks to daffodils, words to dragons and anything else Welsh and Wales related you can think of.

Facebook Group Members can enter by adding their image, in the comments, to the Competition's post, which can be found in the 'Announcements' whilst the competition is going on.

Competition closing date: Saturday 16th February 2019
All members can vote to chose the winner for: One week  (approx) after this date.
Winner will be announced on: Saturday 23rd February 2019
Winning header image will be used from: Saturday 23rd February until Monday 4th March 2019

Our last competition, with prizes, was the Festive Header Competition won by one of our young rockers, Sadie. In her prize acceptance 'speech', Sadie stated that she's wished more members had been involved, so let's not disappoint her in this competition!

Now is the time to add your family and friends to our Facebook Group.

There will be a prize (or prizes) for the winning entry! These will be detailed closer to the date. In addition, the winning image will be used as our group header for St David's day, plus a few days before and after.

    • Leeks or daffodils
    • Welsh Badges
    • Why not little Welsh flags
    • Or, lay your rock on a Welsh flag to take the picture, but we do need to be able to see the rock, so don't take the photo from too far away.
    • The list can be endless

    • Do not add your address to your image when uploading it!
    • This is the same for a winner's prize.
    • Once the postal details have been used, they are deleted. We do not save them.
