Daerwynno (Field of Gwynno) is set in about half an acre of land, in the middle of St. Gwynno forest. A track leads down from the
Ynysybwl to Ferndale road, just beyond St Gwynno's Church. The land is leased from the Forestry Commission.
Daerwynno Outdoor Activity Group has been operational at Daerwynno Centre since 1996. The group of volunteers rebuilt the derelict farm buildings to a good, if basic, standard after acquiring a lease from the Forestry Commission.
Outdoor activities began for quite diverse groups of people, the instruction being delivered by volunteers with nationally recognised qualifications. These instructors were supported by
other volunteers who, themselves, worked towards, and gained, the necessary skills and qualifications. The group moved from strength to strength and over the years has seen a steady increase in volunteers.
TThe demand for use of the centre and organised activities has also increased the group has accepted many hundreds of bookings, ranging from half day, evening sessions, weekends and week-long stays.
The bookings come from individuals, local organisations as well as from further afield and are many and varied from local nursery classes to businesses.
The Group are often asked to take their expertise into schools, community centres and have made several visits to show their
skills at the Royal Welsh Show.
The day-to-day running costs are covered by bookings for activities, membership, charity events that we organise and donations. We aim to keep charges as low as possible, because our desire is, and has always been, to provide facilities for community groups.
