20 Community St Dogmael’s Medieval Day WHILE THERE WAS PLENTY


to do in and around Pembrokeshire on Bank Holiday Monday, it is unlikely that families had a chance to go back in time unless they visited St Dogmael’s Medieval Day. Held in the grounds of St Dogmael’s Abbey, there was a family


day brim full of activities, crafting, games, competitions; spinning; story- telling; and archery. On a gloriously sunny day a healthy


crowd of 200 people spent the day enjoying all the attractions, including St Dogmael’s award-winning market, entertainment from the choir, plenty


of fun for kids and dogs, Mandy’s fish stall, while the Coach House was open for coffees and snacks There was even Ye Olde Burger Van if you felt the twenty-first century was too far away. The publicity promised a great day


for everyone, and everyone who was at the Abbey seemed to agree.

TYWELI WALKING WEEKEND will be taking place at the end of this month, from Friday, September 30 to Sunday, October 2. With a range of walks in preparation, ranging from three miles up to nine miles, there are activities organised to suit everyone despite their skill level. A historic walk around Llandysul

participate in and under 16s can join for free. The walking weekend has been organised by the Llandysul and Pont-Tyweli Walkers who want to help improve health and fitness within the local area. “This is a great opportunity to


discover a part of the Teifi Valley around the Llandysul area, including the woodland at Coed y Fuel and the countryside and villages of Capel Dewi, Tregroes, Cwmcou, Bancyffordd and Alltwallis to Pencader via the Blaengwen Wind Farm,” said a spokesperson for the


group. Some members of the Walkers are


Welcome group and the Newcastle Emlyn Girl Guides have helped in the huge task of walking the paths around Llandysul and Pont-Tyweli making notes where any maintenance is needed. They are working with the rangers from both Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire County Councils to get the local paths cleared of obstructions and ensuring that all stiles and gates are working properly. The group have also arranged


some other activities over the weekend which everyone can enjoy, not just walkers, and these are all taking place in the Porth Hotel in Llandysul. On Friday evening, you can relax


with a session of yoga, which starts at 6pm. On the Saturday evening, there will be a dance - ‘Twmpath Dawns’ - with Erwyd Howells and Bryan Jones and finally, on the Sunday afternoon, a traditional Welsh tea will be organised. For full details, visit www.

Vicar cooks lunches for community


CHRISTOPHER FROST,


the vicar in training in St Mary’s Church, Cardigan, will be trading in his dog collar for chef’s whites this month as the church is reintroducing its monthly lunches for the community. Before Christopher joined the


church, he worked in kitchens and restaurants in Cardiff and Aberystwyth both as a manager and a chef. He said: “When I’m in the kitchen, and things seem to be getting a bit too hot to handle, I try to inspire myself by imagining what a veteran chef like Gordon Ramsay would do in the situation. I try to keep my language a lot cleaner than his as I’m working though!” Community lunches held at the church have been successful in the


past as they have brought people within the community together; in particular, people who don’t often get the opportunity to leave the house or families looking for a good value lunch. “We want to keep our lunches


relaxed, enjoyable and very affordable, and to keep welcoming everyone in the community to join us, whoever they might be. Our team want to do it because it’s our way of trying to share with the community the love we’ve experienced from God in our own lives,” said Christopher. The first lunch will be served at


12.30pm in St Mary’s Church Hall on Tuesday (Sept 6) where a cooked lunch and a dessert will cost just £3 and vegetarian options will be available.
