Valley Mill Welsh Slate for the Winners

valley millBeach Rugby Wales is delighted to announce that Valley Mill is supplying this year’s FSG Beach Rugby Wales trophies and awards.

Over the years, the Valley Mill team has developed a reputation for hand crafting unique Welsh slate gifts and homeware. Alongside this, they’ve also perfected the art of hand crafting soy candles, melts and natural soaps from their workshop in Crynant.

They also allow our customers to have a hand in designing their own Welsh slate products and over the years, they’ve invested heavily in their website to allow for a unique design facility, where ustomers can add their own text and motifs, creating gifts, trophies and plaques which are truly personal and very special.

This year’s FSG Beach Rugby Wales trophies will be handcrafted using Welsh slate, we can’t wait to see them and I am sure they will be the best looking trophies in the club’s award cabinet.

Valley Mill’s Director Kevin Thomas said, “When we were approached by FSG Beach Rugby Wales to create their 2016 trophies, we were very happy to help. The slate we use is mined in Blaenau Ffestinniog and it’s renowned for being the finest in the world. Therefore, it’s very fitting that we’re able to create the awards using this strong and versatile material.”
