Hello All!

To help situations with the Cost of Living Crisis, we distributed Winter Warm packs out into the community to those in needs. Mainly, carers came in to collect them to give to the people that they support. The winter warm packs consisted of a neck warmer, blanket, hat, and thermos flask. These were provided by Canolfan Felin Fach and the items sourced from local shops, whilst the funding was provided by Cyngor Gwynedd.

Tess Arbanska had been in to consult with the Arts & Crafts group, and feedback was given to Tess that they would like to participate in Wet Felting, that began in March. This was a very successful turnout. She is now back at the end of May up until June!

We are now recognised as a Warm Hub.

After founding Canolfan Felin Fach, Christine Hughes has now retired at the end of December 2022. In her place, Sami Lloyd and Meinir Evans have begun their new roles of Manager and CEO of Canolfan Felin Fach. We wish all the best to Christine and thank you very much for all you have done for the Staff and Service User’s. We hope that you have a very happy retirement, and there will always be a warm welcome for you here.

Sandra Jones (Receptionist) has now become an IACT Practitioner in Understanding and Promoting Positive mental health and wellbeing. Sandra also has got a Distinction grade in Bereavement support.

Ceira Owens & Debbie Hughes (Support Workers) completed Suicide Intervention skills training.

Wendy who is studying to be an occupation therapist, has been here on placement.

We have had students here from Coleg Meirion Dwyfor on work experience, and we thank them as well as Wendy for coming to Canolfan felin Fach.

We received a grant from Jo Scott at the Asda Foundation – Investing in spaces and places grant. Thank you Jo, for all your hard work and for all you do in the community.

We hosted a Cost of Living Seminar with Cyngor Gwynedd

We have set up food pantry in our waiting area – so if you are ever in need of tea bags, tins e.t.c just drop in, no question asked!

Wendy (Student OT) held a very successful Menopause Information group.

A day event of Tai Chi which was ran by Cymru vs Arthritis was held here.

We have a new member of Staff – Alun! Who is now our maintenance worker, and has already been doing wonders in the garden!

Sharon (Support Worker) is keen to get the kitchen up and running, and has been planning meals so that we can hopefully open our drop in! Sharon also went to the opening of M-Sparc’s new community project here in Pwllheli – The repair shop, and we look forward to working in partnership with them!

Thank you for reading!

We hope the next coming months will be just as busy!
