Get Growing in Newtown
Cwm Harry - Local Growing
Linking local food and community
Get Growing project launch
7:00pm until 9:00pm: Public event, in the Elephant and Castle Hotel, Newtown. For anyone interested in community growing and local food development.
Our big news is that with all the changes at Cwm Harry, due to the compost making contract going to a company in Oxfordshire, we have been asked to make plans to move the garden. Pretty devastating news really, considering all the hard work that has gone into it over the last 3 years, were it not for the fact that we have lined up a very exciting new venue to move to.

Evans butchers reopens
I would like to let everyone know in the Llanarth and surrounding area that my family will be reopening the butchers shop in Llanarth, on Thursday the 3rd May, which recently closed when Caradog retired.
We would like to welcome all customers old and new.
We breed and rear our own pigs so all pork products from sausages to bacon will be prepared in the shop.Also we will be sourcing, where possible, our beef and lamb from local farms supporting our rural economy. Please come and support us.
