    RAY Ceredigion is celebrating funding from Environment Wales to increase awareness of recycling through arts and crafts activities and develop a volunteering programme to assist with the scrapstore. The new project is being launched on Saturday 19th April in RAY Ceredigion’s Aberaeron premises with a free kite making workshop to celebrate National Kite Month (http://www.nationalkitemonth.org/). The workshop is running from 11am – 2pm and is a drop in session aimed at parents and children. ‘We are so pleased to have this opportunity to extend the range of our activities and encourage the use of recycled materials in arts and crafts activities,’ says project manager Gill Byrne. ‘As well as regular free Saturday workshops we are launching a free Wednesday morning Clonc a Chrefft group on 30th April where we can share ideas on items to make from recycled materials. We have themes lined up including rag rugging, weaving with plastics and making bowls from paper and papier mache, but we are keen to accept suggestions from volunteers on new ways to use our scrapstore materials.’ The RAY Ceredigion scrapstore welcomes visits from anyone in the community and in the past year has been used by teaching staff, members of Guiding groups, artists, and parents. The scrapstore is open most days but if travelling long distances ring RAY Ceredigion on 01545 570 686 to book a visit.

  • Taff Housing Allotment Project
    As part of Taff Housing Association’s commitment to the local community, the Association are supporting tenants and residents by creating a thriving growing space at the Leckwith and Droves Allotment site in Cardiff. The community allotment group celebrated a year of success at their Annual General Meeting, marking many changes and improvements to the site. One of the most important, the addition of a compost toilet, took place outside the training shed as the meeting itself was taking place. With the sun shining and much going on around the allotment site, there was a great atmosphere at the meeting, which was as much a celebration of so many achievements. As the officers recounted the year’s events, you could hear the sounds of tapping and banging, as the panels and fittings for the toilet were put in place by contractors from Landcraft. Chairman Fanwell Tandi started off the meeting by saying it had been “a very pleasant year”, and secretary Jayne Palmer talked of the “massive difference” to the facilities, which include more raised beds, a water tank, a thriving training shed, fruit cage, patio area and much more. Jayne played a big part in helping over the past year to draw down grant funding from Environment Wales, Impact Plus and Awards for All, towards the toilet, a much needed polytunnel, funds to purchase the storage container and top soil. Registering with Environment Wales has seen a shift on site to more organic gardening – and signage in English and Welsh.
