Ceredigion’s landscape stars in another series of Y Gwyll Y GWYLL/HINTERLAND

returns to S4C on Sunday, October 30, with the Ceredigion landscape providing a vital and breathtaking background for the third series of the award-winning drama. The second series finale was

explosive, as DCI Mathias’ caravan was burned to the ground. DCI Tom Mathias survived the attack, but the effects of the arson is long lasting, affecting many characters, including Mathias himself. Produced by Fiction Factory and

filmed on location in Ceredigion, Y Gwyll/Hinterland stars Richard Harrington as the brilliant but troubled detective DCI Tom Mathias, alongside a supporting cast that includes Mali Harries as DI Mared Rhys, Aneirin Hughes as Chief Superintendent Brian Prosser, Hannah Daniel as DS Siân Owens and Alex Harries as DC Lloyd Elis. “Ceredigion is a magnificent place,

and so is Aberystwyth. There’s something mystical and magical about it,” says Richard Harrington, who plays DCI Mathias. “It’s been hugely ambitious as a

project, and I think we’ve done it really well. I think we’ve done the place justice too. I mean, not everyone is murdered around here, and the crime rate is quite

low really in comparison, but we’re making drama, it’s not a documentary.” The drama is filmed across

Ceredigion, and Aberystwyth features heavily in the third series. During filming, Y Gwyll/ Hinterland cast and crew lived in Ceredigion, and Mali Harries, who portrays DCI Mared Rhys, loved spending time in the area. “Working in Ceredigion is an

absolute joy; there are numerous times when I’m filming in the middle of nowhere, and I’m so grateful because I could be stuck in an office block looking at a screen and typing something out… I’m out in the open air and it’s absolutely beautiful! When we finish the shoot, I’ll

a package of care provided free-of- charge by the NHS for those people with complex and primarily health- based needs. This can be provided in a care home or an individual’s own home. People who think they, or someone

they care for, may have been eligible for Continuing NHS Healthcare but paid for all, or part, of their care can submit a claim. Potential claimants have until October 31st to register their intent to

make a claim for continuing healthcare costs which were incurred between 1 October 2014 and 30 October 2015. The NHS will provide advice to

definitely miss Ceredigion. I’m very lucky that I’ve purposely lived away from everybody else, in the middle of nowhere. And that’s how I like it because when you’re on set, you do long hard hours. There’s a lot of noise and people around the set, but I’m a very private person. I have a cottage, and I’ve got a fireplace and I carry wood in… I feel at home here. “I’ll definitely miss the landscape, the

cottage, the restaurants, the people, the butchers, the fishmongers, and the baker. Because we shoot for such a long time, we’ve come to know the people – and I’ll definitely miss them. I could definitely live here – just getting to London for work and auditions would be a bit of a problem!”

Deadline approaching for people to claim for their care PEOPLE who believe their care

claimants and will complete all of the work required to review their case free of charge. This is not a legal process and there is no requirement for people to appoint a solicitor. However, if a solicitor is used, these costs cannot be reimbursed. All claims will be reviewed within

6 months of the NHS having all the information that it needs. A publicity campaign to promote the cut-off date, together with information about where people can get further advice is also being launched. Minister for Social Services and

Public Health, Rebecca Evans, said: “People with an illness or

disability can sometimes need long- term care to help them, and their families, manage. Some people will have paid for that care themselves, when it should have been provided free by the NHS. “If people, or their families,

believe they meet the criteria for having their care paid for through Continuing NHS Healthcare, but they paid for the care themselves, I encourage them to come forward to make a claim. “Health boards will provide free

advice to anybody looking to make a claim and will also complete the necessary paper work on their behalf.”

Cardigan the place to visit this Xmas

CARDIGAN Town Centre is

hoping for a bumper Christmas this year, after a £30,000 grant was obtained from Visit Wales by the Cardigan Town Centre Partnership. Using the brand Aberteifi

Creadigol - Creative Cardigan, the Partnership has ambitious plans, including a range of events centred round a Festive Fortnight, beginning on December 3 with the town’s Christmas illuminations being turned on. The celebrations coincide with

the anniversary of the first Eisteddfod, which was hosted by the Lord Rhys at Castell Aberteifi in 1176. As part of the fortnight, there will be a lantern parade through

the town centre on December 9, to commemorate the Eisteddfod (and celebrate Christmas!). Theatr Byd Bychan will host lantern workshops in October and November to get ready for what is sure to be a spectacular sight. Other events include a riverside

fireworks display, live music events, late night shopping and the chance for the young – and young at heart – to meet reindeer at the town’s Guildhall. A Christmas Fair will be held at Castell Aberteifi and there will be free parking in the town on Saturdays. Cllr Clive Davies said: “This

funding will really help put Cardigan on the map and attract people to the town in the run up to Christmas.”

Dà Mhìle distillery a Ceredigion success story

Mark Williams and John Savage-Ontswedder: Outside Da Mhile distillery.


of Parliament for Ceredigion, has congratulated Dà Mhìle, a distillery based in Llandysul, on the launch of their first organic Welsh whisky that took place on Tuesday (Sept 27).

Dà Mhìle is only the second

distillery to bottle whisky in Wales and, with the launch of their single grain whisky, Wales now officially qualifies as a whisky-producing nation under European Union legislation. Mark said: “I was honoured to


attend the launch of Dà Mhìle’s first whisky and to be able to label some of the very first bottles. This is a big

moment for Ceredigion, as well as for Wales, with the launch of this whisky giving our country official status as a whisky-producing nation. “This is a fantastic example of a

local business representing not only Ceredigion, but Wales as well, in the growing whisky industry. I am impressed that we are now officially recognised as a whisky-producing nation, and I am sure that this industry will continue to grow and go from strength to strength. “I look forward to seeing our

Welsh whisky industry continue to grow, and I wish the team at Dà Mhìle every success for the future.”
