Castell Henllys Supervisor Sarah Griffiths said: “We were delighted to meet the boys and present them with their prize here at Castell Henllys, the only Iron Age village in the UK reconstructed on the exact site our Celtic ancestors lived 2,000 years ago.

“Through the competition we hoped to raise awareness in a fun way of some of the issues around litter that the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast faces during the 2018 Year of the Sea.”

Dafydd and Jac’s mother Nicola said: “Thank you so much for a lovely welcome when we collected our prize. A special thanks to Gwion for our educational tour, fighting, bread making, face painting and more - fantastic!

“Also to Liz Roach for keeping Jac topped up with grains to make flour (I know what we'll be making later on) and for recommending the carrot cake in the cafe, delicious!

“Dafydd, Jac and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with you all, and we look forward to visiting again soon.”
