MAY FAIR 2014 - thank you everyone

The second Llandrindod May Fair was held in the Pavilion on Bank Holiday Monday (5th May). The fair was a wonderful celebration of local community and talent, a very happy day, and attracted an estimated 500 visitors from the local community and further afield.

The warmest of thanks are extended to all the people who made the day such a success.

These are, in no particular order, as follows.

The 45 stallholders, who packed all the rooms of the Pavilion with a colourful mix of displays, activities, competitions and wares.

The 30 generous local businesses and residents who donated all the lovely prizes for the May Fair Chinese Auction. Proceeds from the Chinese Auction will go towards the running costs of transition town events in Llandrindod in the coming year, such as Repair Cafes and the Llandrindod May Fair 2015.

 

guest article: visiting a Dutch Repair Cafe

Dear TLT

I hope you don't mind if I tell you a little about a Dutch repair cafe which Don and I visited (by bicycle of course) when we were in Holland this month on a family visit. You may forward this to anyone interested.

 

We visited the Repair Cafe in Harderwijk, a town of about 45000 in the east of Holland, not far from where my mother lives. I wanted to see how they did it in the country where it all began.

 

TLT meeting 22 April 2014

The next meeting of Trawsnewid Llandrindod Transition will be on Tuesday 22 April from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Herb Garden Café, Llandrindod. Josh Cooke from the Radnorshire Wildlife Trust will be talking about creating wildlife-friendly and edible landscapes.

 

Do you want to garden in unused spaces? Are you interested in growing your own food or encouraging wildlife into towns and urban areas? Would you like to see beautiful plants and flowers blooming everywhere as you go through town?

 

Join us on 22 April to learn more about Radnorshire Wildlife Trust's recent work on wildlife-friendly and low-carbon gardening, and discuss where we might take things next. If you are interested in starting an 'Incredible Edible' style group in Llandrindod, or if you just want to re-appropriate unused spaces and make them look more attractive and interesting, then come along and share your views.
 

Meeting 25 March 2014: The Tea Trail

The next meeting of Trawsnewid Llandrindod Transition will be on Tuesday 25 March from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Herb Garden Café, Llandrindod. We will be watching a film, “The Tea Trail”, followed by a discussion.

 

“The Tea Trail” follows adventurer and journalist Simon Reeve as he investigates tea in east Africa. Most of the tea drunk in Britain does not come from China or India, but is bought at auction in Mombasa, Kenya. Simon follows the tea trail through Kenya and Uganda, meeting some of the people who pick, pack and transport tea. He drinks tea with everyone from Masai cattle herders to the descendants of the original white tea planters, and learns that the tea industry is also affected by the troubles of the continent: poverty, low wages and child labour.

 

ALL ARE WELCOME! free admission includes cake and hot drink served at 7pm.
