The CMG Spring Meeting took place on 24 March 2018 at Banc Y Felin Village Hall. We enjoyed two excellent presentations:
Professor David Thorne – “Field names and mediciners”
Richard Pryce – “Plant indicator species for meadows”.

Also – as a further source of information on local names, Professor Thorne referred us to the Royal Commission of Ancient Monuments website:
