Strawberry Tea With Fun & Games

The morning of Sunday 23rd June dawned bright and sunny however the forecast was not good for the afternoon. The Pavilion Committee had done a super job of preparing the field for the event so that games and other outdoor activities could be held. The Coconut Shy, Clock Golf and Splat the Rat were set up and lines marked out for the sports events.

Parents and children started arriving and games etc. got underway until the rain came down an hour later. A couple of the games could be enjoyed indoors so were taken into the Pavilion. It was such a shame as all who came were prepared to take part in something on the field and be rewarded for their efforts.

The Strawberries and Cream went down well too. The Regeneration Group says a huge thank you to all those individuals who helped make the afternoon such a success, whether they had donated refreshments, cakes, raffle prizes, money or given of their time, we are most grateful. Thanks must also go to the local shops – they are always willing to display a poster and help out when they can.

It was a fun afternoon which will be repeated next year.

Our June meeting was held at Linda’s house, where we were able to see some of Linda’s pet tortoises. We learnt a lot about these fascinating creatures. Tortoises have been around for 200 million years. They are herbivores: in some parts of the world, e.g. the Galapagos Islands, they can grow to an enormous size and live for up to 200 years. Linda’s tortoises are Mediterranean, they are very placid and like to eat dandelions.

In July we visited the Coracle Museum in Cenarth, where we were given an interesting talk about these simple boats. Coracles date back to the first civilisations of the world and were one of the first forms of water transport, made from locally available materials. We saw examples of coracles from different countries, e.g. India, Tibet, Iraq, Vietnam, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Coracle net fishing still takes place on 3 rivers in Carmarthen – the Teifi, Taf and Towy. After a delicious lunch in the tearoom, we called in on artist, Helen Elliott in Newcastle Emlyn. She talked about her work and showed us her studio.

Forthcoming meetings at the Pavilion:

September 3rd: Susan Macadam will talk about natural skin care products.

October 1st: Risky Buildings – Richard Keen will talk about projects he’s been involved in.

You are welcome to come along.
