A Cwmgwili man has appeared on a television series to look for help to fix an Eisteddfod crown won by his grandmother.

Silversmith Brenton West was on hand to welcome Ross Hendry to The Repair Shop earlier this year when he took his grandmother’s silver Eisteddfod crown to the altered.

The crown was awarded to Ross’s grandmother Sally (Davey) Jones when she was just 15 in 1937 for wowing the judges at Wales’ most important cultural festival with her poetry recitation skills.

The crown has been dearly treasured ever since, but in its current state it bears little resemblance to its former splendid self – tarnished and bent out of shape, it is quite unwearable.

Brenton sets to work to get it looking royally splendid again during the episode, with a little help from Bear Ladies Julie Tatchell and Amanda Middleditch.

The Hendry family’s episode of The Repair Shop was aired on BBC One on May 7 and is now available to view on BBC iPlayer.
