Merched y Wawr Pencader a’r Cylch

April 2022

It was decided not to hold meetings in January and February but we kept in close contact and joined Zoom meetings where possible.

A few of us went for supper at the Ivy Bush in Carmarthen and went on to see a performance of Shirley Valentine in Welsh at the Lyric Theatre, Carmarthen.  The script, by Manon Eames, was excellent and the performance by Shelley Rees who had such presence on the stage can only be described as brilliant.  It was such a treat to go to a live, local performance and enjoy time together again in this way.

We are currently organising our annual lunch together at The Mari Glyn, Llanllwni and very much looking forward to it.  If you would like to join us to experience our friendship and enjoy our hospitality you are very welcome to join us.

Pencader WI

Women’s Institute

At our February meeting Mr Ivor Thomas showed us a lovely film, originally made by S4C, to celebrate the opening of the Wales Coastal Path in May 2012.  It was a really uplifting film and the afternoon was enjoyed by everyone.

The March meeting took the form of a St. David’s Day lunch at Tafarn Tanerdy in Carmarthen.  We were all delighted that Julia was well enough to join us.  Also, it was lovely to see Barbara, who came all the way from her new home in Llandrindod Wells.  So, all in all, it was a lovely get together.

In April, Davina Watson will make a return visit to the Pavilion.  Her talk is entitled “Lights, Camera, Action!”.  We will also be holding a small Bring and Buy sale after Davina’s talk.

Instead, of meeting on 3rd May, WI members are going on a coach trip to Abergavenny Market on 10th May.  Thanks to Avis for organising this trip.

In June, we will have another outing, this time to the Woollen Mill at Drefach Felindre.  So there is plenty to look forward to.

Pencader WI meetings are held in the Pavilion, at 2pm, on the 1st Tuesday of the month.

Family Centre news

As with all of us at this time, the Family Centre is coping with the virus as well as we can. The centre has been closed since late March, and up to this moment (6th July) no directives/guidelines have been given by the Government regarding the reopening of Family Centres, so we have to be patient.

It has been a frustrating time, and we have tried our best to keep in touch via phone, through a dedicated Facebook page, messenger and email service – which is pencaderfamilycentre@btinternet.com. Families are invited to let us know if we can assist them and if we can help we will.

We have been able to visit some families at a distance whilst supplying craft kits (through a grant from Community Foundation Wales) and families should be receiving two new books in July generously donated by Book Trust Wales. Some supplies have also been delivered by Netty and we thank her for that.

We have been given lots of useful educational and health links which have been posted on our Facebook page and it is worthwhile having a look at them if you need ideas about what to do at home with the children.

So, wishing all of you well. It seems that Pencader hasn’t been seriously affected by the virus and let’s hope it stays like that.

Regeneration Group meeting

November 2020

A short meeting was held at the Pavilion on Monday 17th November at the earlier time of 4:00pm and it was good to see familiar faces again, even if at a distance of two metres.

Minutes of the Extraordinary Meeting held in July were agreed and signed.

Financial report was distributed; bank mandates had been changed for new signatories. It was agreed not to increase advertising rates in Clecs Bro Cader for a while longer as advertisers are having a hard enough time in the current pandemic; those who had been unable to work during lockdowns have had their pre-paid run extended.

A new grant application for funding the next two years of the newsletter needs to be compiled and submitted to Statkraft.

The website has been updated with items from the recent editions of Clecs.

It was agreed that in common with other community groups that the AGM due to be held in January 2021 will be postponed until such time as larger groups are allowed to meet up. Existing officers will remain in post until then. The next meeting will be held at the Pavilion on Monday 21st December at 4:00pm.

If you wish to support the community we would be delighted to see new faces.

 

Could you support us?

The Pencader and District Regeneration Group is keen to have more people supporting its activities.

You can read the Chairman’s Report for 2019 HERE.

PLEASE NOTE

Our meetings would normally take place on the THIRD Monday in the month in the Pavilion, Pencader, at 7:30pm.

 

The next meeting will be held at the Pavilion on Monday 21st December at 4:00pm.

If you feel you would like to join the Group, please come along to the next meeting – held at 7.30 at the Pavilion on third Monday of the month.

February 2020

A few complaints had been received about an article in the last edition of Clecs; it was agreed that it must be made clear in Clecs Bro Cader that the views expressed are those of the writer and not the Group or the editorial team. The Community Facebook page now had 345 members,an increase of over 30 from last month. Stuart & Chris will go and see about hiring the school as the venue for next Garden & Craft Show in September as running out of room in Pavilion now. Need to meet up and arrange schedule.

January 2020

The evening began with the AGM, Stuart read out his Chairman’s report (a copy can be seen on the Pencader.org website) and thanked all for their support in the year. No nominations received for changing Officers, so it was proposed and seconded to keep the officers as they are. The usual monthly meeting then followed. Morgan had met with Keith and Jane and was happy to help with Clecs Bro Cader. Suggestions needed for the 100th issue in April. There had been a problem accessing the Welsh version of the website, Emma had done a temporary fix. It had also been pointed out that Parish Records are no longer held at the National Library as they have been returned to the Parish. These are available for inspection at Llanfihangel Vicarage at a charge of £22 per hour.
