Portmeirion, the iconic regional attraction has added its support to Gogledd Cymru, the most exciting rugby development in Wales. http://www.portmeirion-village.com/. It is appropriate that the new Gogledd Cymru kit will carry the Protmeirion logo. With an architect bold enough to create an innovation that has become world famous it defines the aim of Gogledd Cymru.
In the words of Clough Williams-Ellis "we can, if we are clever...have both beautiful new developments along with the old, and the natural beauty as well" Gogledd Cymru aims to take regional rugby down a proud, democratic and transparent, path to being the foremost region in Wales - Join us! email k.l.morgan@liv.ac.uk for details of our partnerhsip schemes.

MILK – the sports drink.

Gogledd Cymru has become the first rugby team in Britain to promote milk as a sports drink. In the first of a series of planned promotion partnerships, South Caernarfon Creameries http://www.sccwales.co.uk/ have agreed to sponsor Golgedd Cymru over the next two seasons. This fits well with the team’s aim to promote regional businesses and to improve milk consumption in Wales. There are 2,600 dairy farms in Wales, approximately one per 1000 head of population. This is 4 times that in England where the ratio is one per 4,000 people. Dairy farming is particularly important in North Wales. Numerically, eighteen percent of Welsh dairy cattle holdings are in North East Wales. Of equal importance are the small family farms of North West Wales. Here the average herd size is 48 compared with a national average of 75.
Llaeth (milk) is a regular feature on the Gogledd Cymru training ground and changing room. No other sports drink strengthens bones. Llaeth is also isotonic, restores body pH.........and it’s Welsh.
Other local companies with an interest in sponsoring this exciting rugby development by having their logo on the team shirt should contact Kenton Morgan k.l.morgan@liv.ac.uk 0151-794-7986
