As every year for the last 10 years, some of the South Wales Swiss gathered at Beat & Elisabeth Wehren’s Fronhaul in Little Newcastle in Pembrokeshire to celebrate their National Day on 1st August 2016
Unfortunately, the weather was quite miserable on the day and prevented lounging in the beautiful garden, but this not dampen the spirits. Beat is always well prepared and his little Swiss garden chalet could accommodate all of the 40 guests. On the menu was pork chops, sausages, sauerkraut and pasta and the ladies brought some Swiss desserts along.
To keep with Swiss traditions the Swiss President’s speech was read out, the National anthem listened to and the overall live music were welsh folk tunes provided by guitarist James McDonald (Mac).
