That this House congratulates Tafarn y Fic, in Llithfaen, Gwynedd on celebrating its 30th birthday, making it the oldest community pub in Europe; notes that in 1988, a number of people from the Llithfaen area formed a co-operative company and raised capital to purchase Tafarn y Fic; recognises the hard work of the community in creating a social Welsh pub providing a variety of entertainment in the Welsh language and offering employment locally; further recognises the highly successful social enterprise whose revenue is directed straight back into the community as a beacon of Welsh culture, traditions and entertainment; believes Tafarn y Fic is a prime example of what can be achieved when a community comes together; and wishes Tafarn y Fic Llithfaen all the best for the future, continuing as a cornerstone of community life and celebrating Welsh language and culture.
