Our Favourite Things

This summer the staff at Llanerchaeron wanted to share some of their favourite items in the Pamela Ward collection with you. Six members of staff have picked their favourite items and here they are. A new item will be placed on display in the villa each week, and we'll also have activities relating to the items every Wednesday from 12pm to 3.30pm.
