Transition Bro Gwaun and Renew Wales are running Creative Climate Communications on Wednesday 27th November, in Fishguard and have sent us an invitation.
This will be a day of performances, workshops and dialogue for anyone who is, or would like to be, creatively engaging their group or community to talk about climate change in Wales. Centred around Transition Bro Gwaun’s (TBG) recent programme of events and activities in their local area, the day will include an evaluation of using arts based community events.
There will be performances (some participatory!) and workshops. These include forum theatre, youth theatre, storytelling, singing, comedy, art, craft and waste reduction activities, working collaboratively with other community groups, schools and youth groups as well as evaluating the impact of events and activities. Participants are encouraged to get involved and to bring their own ideas and experiences to share.
The day is free to attend, but must be booked in advance.

UPDATE: Sadly the Visitor Centre closed at the start of 2018. Please see the reference for the latest status.
Huge new development now proposed for Newport
This proposal, if approved, would be the largest ever allowed in Newport. Many people will feel it is out of all proportion in terms of the effect on the environment and the impact on the community. An opposition group has been set up, and a website can be found at http://bentinckdevelopment.org.uk This contains full details of the development. Therefore there is no longer any need to put up more information here.

The star count should not include these four corner stars – only those within this rectangular boundary – but do include the stars in the middle known as Orion’s three-star belt.
