Since our blog in May, it’s been a dreary Summer with not the best weather to say the least. But we have remained positive with some great accomplishments and developments.
Anita has graduated with a First in an open degree. Therefore, we used this as a great excuse to have a party and to celebrate with friends! We had a buffet, and pictures taken with Bedwyr @ Dewi Wyn Photography, and got to meet Anita’s tutor – Kate Shelley. Anita says ‘Thank you to All!’. Anita has now started a language course in German! ‘ Gut Gemacht’
We Received a grant of £1600 to help us with our desire to create a food pantry. We would like to thank Jo Scott, once again for her encouragement and support. We hope to bring a food pantry that provides 12 items for a cost of £3.50. Our survey, we put out to the public has shown a need for this.
At the end of May, we began to plant Vegetables and fruit, and in this last month, Alun, Tania, Debbie & Sharon have all been busy harvesting (& eating) them! We had tomatoes, rhubarb, potatoes & runner beans!
Alun, our brilliant maintenance worker has been super busy with painting and decorating. And by renovating one of our rooms has discovered some window shutters that had been sealed with paint, and he has now restored them to their full glory & has bought a little bit of history back into the building!
We had a brilliant turn out with our Tabletop Sale & a lot of fun was had!
We have had fire safety training & we have new designated fire marshals and have upgraded the building with fire door shutters to ensure safety!
We have re-opened the kitchen and are planning for cooking sessions & are now preparing lunch every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday’s. We also had the most brilliant news – we have had a 5* Food Hygiene Scoring on our door! Thank you, Sharon, for all your hard work & dedication with the paperwork and getting the kitchen ready!
Ceira & Sharon attended the Eisteddfod in Boduan and had a stall in the Betsi Cadwaladr Tent! They thoroughly enjoyed their time there and are grateful to everyone that they have met there.
We had a Spring Wreath Making session with Mandy from Tudweiliog!
Carol, our long-term volunteer has returned! We are very happy to have her back here!
As staff, we now have optional uniforms with our logo on them!
