That this House expresses deep regret and sadness at the devastating fire which destroyed the entire interior of Y Rhiw Goch Inn, Bronaber, Trawsfynydd during the early hours of Sunday 15 October 2018; pays sincere tribute to firefighters of North Wales Fire and Rescue who sought to contain the fire which occurred in the aftermath of stormy weather; sympathises with the proprietor and local community at the loss of a Grade 2 listed building, parts of which are believed to have been 700 years old, and the childhood home of Welsh martyr St John Roberts (1577 -1610), and also the home of the great Meirionnydd family, the Llwydiaid, including Robert Lloyd, who served as Member of Parliament for the former county in 1586 and 1601; notes that the community of Trawsfynydd has lost its only public house; and urges the police and fire service to make every endeavour in their inquiry into the cause of the fire.
