Canolfan Cydweithredol Cymru yn dathlu ei ben-blwydd yn 30 oed

Buom yn dathlu ein pen-blwydd yn 30 oed yn Neuadd y Ddinas Caerdydd ym mis Mehefin yng nghwmni tua 100 o westeion o’r sectorau busnes a datblygu cymunedol yn ogystal â staff presennol a staff y gorffennol. Rhoddwyd y prif anerchiad gan Edwina Hart AC, y Gweinidog dros Fusnes, Menter, Technoleg a Gwyddoniaeth i neuadd wedi’i llenwi hyd yr ymylon. Bu’r gwesteion hefyd yn mwynhau clywed gan gleientiaid megis Gofal a Thrwsio Abertawe, Aber Instruments a brynwyd gan y gweithwyr a thafarn gymunedol y Saith Seren yn Wrecsam.

Cafwyd canmoliaeth gan A.J. Singh a urddwyd yn Llywydd TUC Cymru yn ddiweddar am y modd y mae’r Ganolfan yn mynd ati i gyflawni’i waith ers i TUC helpu i’w sefydlu ym 1982. Derbyniodd Cadeirydd y Ganolfan, David Jenkins, a chyd aelod o’r bwrdd David White anrhegion i ddiolch iddynt am 30 mlynedd o wasanaeth. Yn dilyn cinio rhwydweithio dathlodd y gwesteion â chacen pen-blwydd yn 30 oed.

Yn sgil etholiadau yn ystod y Cyfarfod Cyffredinol Blynyddol penodwyd tri Chyfarwyddwr newydd hefyd. Rydym yn croesawu John Hughes, Amy Sanders a Susan Thomas ac yn diolch i aelodau’r bwrdd sy’n ein gadael.
