Sibrydion Cymuned - Local Interest for the Local Community

Sibrydion Cymuned is a local magazine covering a growing area in South Snowdonia. We aim to provide an essentially local focus and include content with integrity.

The magazine is delivered to every house in 7 villages (Penmaenpool, Arthog, Fairbourne, Friog, Llwyngwril, Rhoslefain and Llanegryn.)  It is also distributed around the surrounding towns and other villages, but not delivered to each house (Dolgellau, Dinas Mawddwy, Corris, Machynlleth, Talyllyn, Bryn Crug, Tywyn, Aberdyfi).

The magazine is funded purely by the advertisements, which our readers value as they are mainly local tradesmen and businesses.  The magazine is read thoroughly and kept as a source of reference, whereas the local newspaper is skimmed through and discarded..

We have testimonials from our readers and advertisers:

"As owners of a holiday home in Llwyngwril we have found Sibrydion to be a valuable link with the local community both in terms of the many activities that take place in the village and surrounding area but also as a source of contacts for local goods and services, a facility we have already used on several occasions. This is particularly helpful as we are not resident in the village"                                                                         Chris Bywater, Llwyngwril

 “Arthog Line Dancers regularly use Sibrydion Cymuned to publicize their events, as we know from experience just how much the magazine is used by local people (we know because we all use it!).  The magazine is great for finding out about regular and new leisure activities taking place, local pubs and restaurants as well as finding out telephone numbers for local trades people.  Added to this the articles are also extremely interesting.  A great little magazine.” 

 On 29 January 2010 20:15, CLIFFORD ARTHUR VILLA : Sibrydion is very important Magazine for the surrounding community. It is a good way of informing everyone of events and activities now, or forthcoming, also a reference for finding local trades people shops etc.           As an organizer of the Saturday Tea Dances and member of the Fairbourne Dance Club (every Wednesday’s,Sequence Dancing),it is a very good for giving anyone interested in dancing, dates for their diary.   

 I am very happy to say how helpful it is to have such a valuable and effective way of reaching those who are fairly local to Tywyn and the Talyllyn Railway and to encourage them to support us. Thanks.  Oh and by the way, I really must get round to putting something in Sibrydion on the subject of the Tywyn Wurlitzer and its regular concerts.                                                        John Smallwood  

 Sibrydion has to be one of the most effective advertising opportunities for businesses and organisations in the area, even though full house-to-house distribution hasn't quite reached Dolgellau yet.  It is the type of publication people hang on to, and reach for when they need local information...and at £2.50 a week to the advertiser it's great value.Richard Paramor, Theatr Fach, Dolgellau

I Just had to write to you about the Sybrydion Cymuned . It is one of handiest books to have around the home. The information in it, I have found   very useful especially for contact phone numbers for local business and retail outlets. It is also a great help to keep up with church services and all local activities in the community in fact a very valuable all round informative magazine. I have also found it to be educational with so many interesting articles. Thank you for all your efforts I can assure you it is very much appreciated.  Jean Pike Church Warden, Fairbourne

 Your community magazine is a very welcome one, especially as it is delivered to every home in the area.  It is full of interesting articles, and news about what is going on.  It is very professionally put together, and I am sure everyone who receives a copy, keeps it for reference.   I appreciate this very much.   I know you put a lot of time and effort into it.              Barbara Snowball Arthog

 The Golf Club supported the original Parish Magazine as we felt that as we are a 'Community Project’, we should support the Parish and inform all the Parishioners of the facilities that are on offer.  We were disappointed when the publications ceased, but were delighted when Debbie ASHTON and her team launched 'Sibrydion'.  We are very pleased in the response that we have received to our advert and the summer visitors who read the magazine often say 'we saw your advert in the ‘Sibrydion'.  Long may it continue. Mike Scott   Treasurer - Fairbourne Golf Club   

 Just a few lines to say that we have found Sibrydion Cymuned an excellent source of information to locate local trades-people and have found the advertisers to be helpful and dependable. The editor is supportive and creative. It’s a great community resource and I am now advertising in it myself and have had a few responses from my first ad.                                                                                        Viv Hinks Tal y llyn

 Picked Sibrydion up in the Drug Store in Tywyn, thought is was well produced and covered an area that we fail to reach as an organisation, although there always seems to be something going on.  C Barry Glover, Tywyn
