0:02:440:02:49

-does Ysgol Panteg compare to that?

0:03:590:04:04

-children are musical and talented.

0:04:040:04:09

0:09:320:09:42

-We're still waiting to hear if we

-have officially broken the record.

0:09:430:09:51

-We'll be at the Royal Welsh Show

-too.

0:09:510:09:53

-Avid viewers of Heno

-will remember the amazing story...

0:09:530:09:57

-..of a Carmarthenshire lady

0:09:570:10:00

-..all the way back to her home

-in West Wales.

0:10:000:10:02

-Rhodri Gomer discovered that this

-journey wasn't quite long enough!

0:10:030:10:06

-Megan Lewis is from Ffrwdfal Farm

-near Pumpsaint...

0:10:190:10:23

-..and riding horses is in her blood.

0:10:230:10:26

-She spent her early life in Malaya

-in the Far East...

0:10:260:10:30

-..but the Cambrian Mountains

-have been her home.

0:10:300:10:34

-She united her birthplace

-with the Wild West in a unique trek.

0:10:340:10:40

-The original challenge was to ride

-from Beijing to London...

0:10:410:10:46

-..between the Olympic Games.

0:10:460:10:49

-I arrived in London

-and then rode back to Wales.

0:10:490:10:53

-It seemed natural to continue riding

-to North America.

0:10:540:10:58

-Where did you finish?

0:10:590:11:01

-I finished in Bodego Bay

-which is north of San Francisco.

0:11:010:11:06

-How long has it taken

-for you to complete the challenge?

0:11:060:11:10

-The whole trek

-has taken about eight years...

0:11:100:11:15

-..but I did it in stages

-of three months twice a year.

0:11:150:11:19

-You've achieved something amazing

-and unique.

0:11:190:11:23

-Has anybody else

-completed this challenge?

0:11:230:11:26

-I don't think anyone has ridden

-on horseback through Malaya.

0:11:270:11:30

-I'm certain that nobody

-has ridden around the world.

0:11:300:11:36

-Megan learnt some Chinese

-and Russian before leaving...

0:11:370:11:40

-..which helped her on her journey...

0:11:400:11:44

-..but she still had to rely

-on the generosity of others.

0:11:440:11:50

-A lot of people helped me with food

-and giving me a place to sleep.

0:11:500:11:55

-I slept in sheds, a garage

-and also a bed from time to time!

0:11:550:12:02

-What sort of obstacles

-did you have to overcome?

0:12:020:12:07

-The biggest issue

-came with crossing a border.

0:12:070:12:13

-On the border

-between the Ukraine and Hungary...

0:12:130:12:18

-..I was stuck for three weeks

-as the bureaucracy was a nightmare!

0:12:180:12:25

-Megan is glad to be home

-with her Welsh ponies...

0:12:250:12:29

-..but why did she take on

-this challenge?

0:12:300:12:33

-One of the reasons for doing it was

-to raise money for Challenge Aid...

0:12:330:12:38

-..that builds schools in Kenya.

0:12:380:12:41

-I'd always wanted to do

-a long trek on horseback...

0:12:410:12:48

-..and always wanted to travel

-around China and the Middle East.

0:12:480:12:56

-What did you get out

-of the experience?

0:12:560:13:00

-It was being able to truly

-experience other countries.

0:13:000:13:05

-The scenery was beautiful...

0:13:060:13:10

-..but I met a lot of kind and

-interesting people on the journey.

0:13:100:13:16

-What's next?

0:13:160:13:18

-A rest!

0:13:180:13:21

-I breed Welsh ponies so look forward

-to exhibiting my ponies...

0:13:220:13:28

-..doing some judging

-and a lot of other things too.

0:13:290:13:32

-Congratulations to Megan.

0:13:380:13:39

-It's certainly

-an amazing achievement.

0:13:400:13:42

-After the break, we visit

-Aberaeron Primary School...

0:13:420:13:45

-..to view a mural that pays tribute

-to a member of staff at the school.

0:13:450:13:50

-And we hear why the former soldier,

-Malcolm Davies...

0:13:500:13:53

-..has decided to walk

-1,030 miles around Wales.

0:13:530:13:56

-Join us in a few minutes.

0:16:400:16:42

-The pupils and the local artist,

-Lizzie Spikes...

0:16:430:16:45

-..have been working on

-a special mural for the school hall.

0:16:460:16:49

-In April 2016, the school lost

-a member of staff due to illness.

0:16:490:16:54

-Everyone pulled together to create

-a mural in memory of her.

0:16:540:16:57

-Miss Janet was an assistant

-at the school for many years.

0:17:080:17:13

-Most recently,

-she worked with the Year 2 pupils.

0:17:130:17:18

-However, she was also in charge of

-teaching art to the entire school.

0:17:180:17:22

-Her influence spread beyond

-the boundaries of art.

0:17:220:17:28

-A year last April,

-we heard the sad news...

0:17:290:17:34

-..that she had lost her

-very short battle with cancer.

0:17:350:17:39

-It came as a massive blow

-to the school.

0:17:390:17:46

-After learning of her death, the

-Southgate family knocked on my door.

0:17:500:17:57

-They wanted to create a memorial

-mural as Miss Janet enjoyed art.

0:17:570:18:04

-We asked the pupils to come up

-with words that described her...

0:18:040:18:09

-..and that was the basis of it.

0:18:100:18:14

-It was an incredible project

-and the children worked hard.

0:18:150:18:20

-They wanted to remember Miss Janet

-and understood the task.

0:18:200:18:25

-They all know which part

-of the mural is their own work.

0:18:250:18:29

-It was a lot of fun...

0:18:380:18:41

-..because it brought back lots of

-memories of working with Miss Janet.

0:18:410:18:46

-My favourite part is the word

-"brwdfrydedd" or enthusiasm.

0:18:460:18:49

-Miss Janet was full of enthusiasm

-and it encourages us to be the same.

0:18:500:18:57

-My favourite word

-is "dyfalbarhau" or persistence.

0:18:580:19:01

-She'd always tell us to persevere

-to achieve things.

0:19:020:19:06

-The words on the mural remind me

-of Miss Janet and her personality.

0:19:070:19:16

-I'll never forget her.

0:19:160:19:19

-The mural is a tribute to her

-and a celebration of her life.

0:19:210:19:26

-It will also serve as an every day

-inspiration to the pupils...

0:19:260:19:31

-..to lead their lives

-following her values.

0:19:320:19:37

-Well done to everyone involved

-in creating that wonderful mural.

0:19:440:19:47

-It's one thing to take a stroll

-to admire the beauty of Wales...

0:19:470:19:51

-..but something very different

-to walk around the whole of Wales!

0:19:510:19:55

-Malcolm Davies is doing just that

-over the next two months.

0:19:560:19:59

-Our cameras joined him at the

-National Wetland Centre Wales...

0:19:590:20:03

-..as he started his 1,030-mile trek

-yesterday.

0:20:030:20:06

-# I've walked over the mountain

0:20:070:20:10

-# I've seen the light clearly

0:20:100:20:14

-# The future is bright

-and the past so far away

0:20:140:20:18

-# A new day is dawning

0:20:190:20:22

-# A new day #

0:20:220:20:26

-I started in Carmarthen on Saturday.

0:20:260:20:29

-I'll be heading from

-Llanelli Wetlands to Chepstow...

0:20:290:20:33

-..will follow Offa's Dyke to Chester

-and around North Wales.

-..how many miles he's going to do

-in a day and what's his averages.

-based on Malcolm and his walk.

0:21:240:21:28

0:21:280:21:30

-..as I'll carry a sleeping bag, tent

-and change of clothing.

0:21:300:21:34

-I'm not taking any food because

-I'm travelling along the Coast Path.

0:21:340:21:37

-I'll be passing shops

-so I hope they're going to be open.

0:21:380:21:41

-I might stop in a few pubs

-for a meal and a couple of pints!

0:21:420:21:45

-I'll also be chatting to people

-on the way to ask for donations.

0:21:450:21:49

-That's quite a challenge.

0:21:550:21:57

-Good luck to Malcolm!

0:21:570:21:59
