The spellings may be different, but Llanddewi-Brefi won fame with Dafydd
A village made famous by the hit BBC comedy Little Britain is set for a £400,000 makeover.
Llanddewi-Brefi was protected as a conservation area in 2007, thanks partly to Matt Lucas's portrayal of Dafydd, "the only gay in the village".
A total of £400,000 has been earmarked to protect its character and restore public buildings as part of a £3m rural development plan in Ceredigion.
Under the scheme businesses and community groups can apply for grants.
Rubber-clad Dafydd helped put Llanddewi-Brefi on the map, making it a magnet for fans of the show.
In recent years the village's road signs have been targeted by souvenir hunters.
Eighteen months ago Ceredigion council gave the village special status in an attempt to protect its character.

Conservation area status means its buildings and character are protected and there are tighter controls on planning applications.
Ceredigion council said: "The £400,000 for Llanddewi-Brefi will be used primarily on restoring the heritage features of businesses, public buildings and public spaces in the village and surrounds of Llanddewi Brefi."
It added that the funding would also have a "limited amount of activity" in nearby Pontrhydfendigaid and surrounding areas.
Under the rural development plan a number of projects in the county have access to money.
In 2007, council planning officer Rosemary Rhys said a proposal to make Llanddewi-Brefi a conservation area ahead of other villages was partly thanks to Little Britain's success.
It is also famous for a sermon delivered by Wales' patron saint David.
It is said the ground rose beneath him to allow people to see him preach at the village church.
