    Can we encourage as many as possible to sign and/or organise petitions - and if possible to attend the "Day of Action" at the Carmarthen Guildhall on Saturday 30th August at 10am.

    If the TTIP goes ahead, as is being discreetly negotiated at present, it will make billions for the US global corporations and ruin our society, economy and environment in the process.

Website status

This site has not been updated since 2014 and is being maintained as an archive for now. As time allows we'll be weeding out the dated material and presenting the many useful articles in a new format. We'd appreciate any feedback on what you find most useful on this site via our contact page.

Cae Poeth nature reserve

Please come join us for a winter weekend up at Cae Poeth Nature Reserve anytime between 10 - 4 on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, 21/22/23 January.

On the Friday we're pleased to have Adam working with us, starting off work on the fence to partition off part of the lake surround. This is being done for human safety reasons as well as to minimise disturbance of nature around the lake.  Adam will be showing us how to use on-site (some coppised) materials to build three different types of fence - deadhedge, willow and rustic.  We hope to get the fence completed by the end of the weekend, as well as continuing with ongoing maintenance work/nature surveys on the site. Of course, we will also spend time enjoying the warmth of the fire and many tea/coffee opportunities!

For more information please contact me on 01654 702993 / 07757 211059, or email me back with any queries.

Hope to see you there! But please note - this event could be postponed if it snows  - in case of snow please phone first to check if it's possible to get up there or back again. Mobiles do not work on site so it's best to phone before 9.45 to check if we are able to go.
