  • On behalf of Cenarth Community Council I would like to express my thanks to all who attended that afternoon especially those who had travelled a long way to be with us. A wonderfull day was had by all and members of both families expressed their thanks for a memorable occasion. The plaque now takes pride of place on the Village green.
