    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.

Spring News from Cae Poeth

Having braved the arctic scenes last time up at Cae Poeth Nature Reserve we thought it was about time we headed down there to see how things have grown.... and do some site maintenance, have some fun, get creative and simply enjoy the space.

So, on Fri 13 and Sat 14 May we'll be there from 10 - 4 each day with kettle on the fire and three main tasks to atttempt:


1. Weaving  a giant screen out of the monster brambles to replace the deteriorated compost loo screen

2,  Completing the 'leanto' shelter that was so ably started at the Autumn skillshare last year

3.  Designing and creating a new path through the site and (if time) building a bench somewhere along its route,,, would you like people to stop and admire the view of the river, the pond, the valley, a favourite tree....?

Hope to see you there - next comes the important stuff I have to say every time, including directions - but if you need any further info please just contact me!
