Anglesey Vintage Ploughing Society
During 1998 a group of friends came together with the view to re-kindle the ploughing matches on the Island after a break of twenty five years. Following lengthy discussions, it was resolved to establish a Society. Will Hughes was elected chairman and indeed has been re-elected to the chair each year.
After electing officials, the way forward was to acquire land to stage the event. The committee had a lot of work in raising the funds, however due to the readiness of local businesses willing to sponsor the event, the money was raised.
The committee were also able to acquire the original cups & trophies which were used as perpetual cups during the matches held years ago. We have a dedicated working committee and at the present time there are twenty members. We meet once a month at a local hotel, which is ideal, as soon as the committee comes to an end, we are able to relax over a pint or two!
The committee meet every last Thursday of each month at the Gadlys Hotel, Cemaes at 8:00pm.

David T. Peacock (Secretary).
