The team at Tyddyn Môn had a very successful first day at their pop up shop in the Deiniol Centre in Bangor, despite the challenging weather.

Tyddyn Môn is a charity that supports adults with learning disabilities in seven supported houses across Anglesey and at a 35 acre farm and training centre near Amlwch.

The shop in the Deiniol Centre was packed full of well wishers for the official opening by Gareth Wyn Jones. Gareth, seen on TV in The Hill Farmer and the Farmer and the Food Chain and known for his bestselling book, opened the shop on small business Saturday and even made his own bowl on the potter’s wheel.


The pop up shop sells unique handmade mugs, made by the service users at Tyddyn Môn and a range of other pottery, woodwork, squirrel feeders, clothes, fudge and cakes.

Orders can also be taken for products and shoppers can also make their own pottery on the potter’s wheel.

CEO Michelle Freeman said: “I would like to thank everybody who came and supported us on Saturday, and would particularly like to thank Gareth for his help and support at the opening. We would like to invite everyone to come and purchase a locally made bespoke Christmas present at our pop up shop and drop in for a chat with our team from Tyddyn Môn.”

Learners from the Independent Living Skills department at Coleg Menai Llangefni will be joining the team at Tyddyn Môn on Thursday, December 10 to sell the Christmas goods that they have made on their course.

The shop will be open until December 16.
