About us

Welcome to the Gwynedd-Meirionnydd Federation

Meirionnydd Federation is happily situated in one of the most stunning areas of the country - Snowdonia National Park.

We are close to instantly recognisable landmarks such as Portmeirion Village and Harlech Castle all set along the magnificent Cardigan Bay coastline.

We are a relatively a small Federation with 12 Institutes. 

Our beautiful surroundings are a great inspiration to us and dominate our activities, whether it be outdoor pursuits, art & crafts, public affairs or sports.

We have lots of opportunities for great days out walking, dancing, or even playing croquet. With the combination of fabulous company and such a beautiful environment it's easy to while away the hours.

If you have a more artistic streak you can join a craft class. These industrious groups produce amazing work whilst chatting and enjoying a coffee. If you're feeling competitive we participate in the Meirionnydd County Show and the Royal Welsh Show.

We take keen interest in current affairs and we have discussed a wide range of issues from agriculture in crisis to the future of a nuclear power station.

We are fortunate to have access to an educational centre, Plas Tan y Bwlch, for a weekend each September where we have the opportunity to try new crafts, improve our skills or hear fascinating lectures.

So if you have some free time we would love to welcome you to one of our Institutes.
