The Secret Travels of the Grapevine… Grapevine is now available around the world: issuu.com/ lampetergrapevine/stacks … but we are also really interested to know how far and wide the paper versions have travelled; what local villages and communities it has reached and what route it has taken - Or perhaps how many people have passed it on to someone else? Are you planning any travels over the coming months? If so please don’t forget to pack your copy of Grapevine - we’re always fascinated to find out where in the world it goes with you. Can your copy of Grapevine be the most environmentally friendly traveller? Or will yours be shared in a variety of unusual ways, be found in an quirky local location, be upcycled or recycled? Where will your copy of Grapevine end up? Why don’t you send us your photos: lampetergrapevine@gmail.com and we’ll publish them in future issues. Eds.

GRAPEVINE no. 57, Mar 2018 Post: c/o Victoria Hall, Bryn Road, Lampeter, Ceredigion SA48 7EE Email: lampetergrapevine@gmail.com Published by: Transition Llambed Development Trust, Victoria Hall, Bryn Road, Lampeter, SA48 7EE Printed by: TSD Reprographics, Lampeter, on paper from sustainable resources Printing costs sponsored by:

Croeso / Welcome to another issue of the Grapevine … I must firstly apologise for the delay in getting this issue produced and published. Unfortunately, I was hit by the dreaded winter flu virus shortly after the February issue and have been very slow in getting back to full strength - sorry. Hopefully, normal service will resume shortly! ☺ When I first started to think about this editorial I was convinced that it needed to focus on the issues of the day, the challenge was how to link these with the Grapevine’s theme of ‘Space’. My initial thoughts drifted towards making reference to the hundredth anniversary

of

when

some

women

gained

the

vote,

particularly as Thursday 8 March is International Women’s Day (IWD). In this case, the space refers to the ‘gap’ that still exists between the rights of men and women. It is shocking to hear the findings of ‘The World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Report’ telling us that gender parity is still over 200 years away! That is quite a gap to close but one which should motivate us to

Cooking with Steem: Children's cooking classes @ Victoria Hall Who remembers the Lampeter Young People’s Food Festival way back in July 2014? When I organised that, one of the ideas was that after the festival we would continue to nurture interest in food by setting up cooking classes for young people around Lampeter. In fact that is one of the main reasons that I invested in all the cooking equipment for the cooking competition that took place on the day. I have not forgotten about the cooking classes, but the opportunity and the funding have never come together. The costs of venue hire, ingredients, hiring tutors etc. has always made the cost for each participant too high to be accessible enough. However, with the arrival of Steemit that I wrote about in the last Grapevine (Issue 56, Feb 2018, page 26) we have found a way to move forward with the cooking classes. Steemit is a new blogging and social media platform based on the steem blockchain that pays people for the content they post. The ‘launch’ of steemit in Wales took place on 10 February at Victoria Hall. Growing out of the organisation of that event, I have worked out a plan for funding the cooking classes. There will be a set of four trial Cooking with Steem cooking classes taking place during the Easter Holidays at Victoria Hall. The classes will be aimed at children aged 11 - 16, and will last 2 hours. In each session the children will cook a complete meal for two (starter, main course and dessert) that they will take away with them. Each session will be taught by a local cooking expert. There will be one vegetarian session, one vegan session and the other two may be meat based. Children will be free to attend one or more of the sessions. The bulk of the costs will be covered through earnings from blog posts that I will make on steemit about the Cooking with Steem classes. These posts will include photos taken at the classes, so parents will need to give permission for their children to appear in the photos. There will though, be a small fee for each class to ensure attendance. The fee will be discounted for children signing up for all four sessions. The full details and dates for the classes are still being finalised, but they will take place during the weeks beginning 2 April and 9 April (Schools Easter Holidays). If anyone would like to know more about the Cooking with Steem classes please contact: Chris Studman 01570 493649 chris@studman.net

Fancy playing netball for fun? There is a new group being set up in Lampeter for ladies who want to play netball. The emphasis will be on fun, making new friends and improving fitness. This is aimed at all ages, all abilities and all levels of fitness, so ideal for those who haven't played since school or haven't played at all. Ceredigion Netball League are kindly funding two fully coached sessions at Lampeter Leisure Centre on Thursday 22 March and Thursday 19 April 7:30-9pm If there is still enough interest following on from these sessions we aim to meet on a weekly basis. For more accomplished and ambitious netballers there will be the option to enter a competitive league. Please join the facebook group Llewod Llambed Lampeter Lionesses for updated information.

A PLASTIC-FREE LAMPETER? This motion was passed at a recent meeting of Lampeter Town Council: “Lampeter Town Council supports the aims of the plastic free movement. We will support, promote and encourage Lampeter and its residents in working towards being plastic free; encourage local businesses, shops and supermarkets to pledge to cease selling goods and products packaged in single use or unnecessary plastic; to encourage and support Lampeter residents in their wish to see their town go plastic free; and to encourage Ceredigion Council to commit to a plastic free Ceredigion.� Lampeter Town Council have contacted the Chamber of Trade to seek their collaboration, and would like to see a committee formed of representatives from the town's businesses, educational establishments, voluntary organisations, communities and other interested groups so as to move this forward. This framework is established in the Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) community toolkit for achieving Plastic Free Community status, which Aberporth recently achieved and which the other Ceredigion communities are working to achieve. To download the toolkit, use this link: https://www.sas.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/Plastic-Free-Coastlines-Community-Toolkit.pdf Ceredigion communities currently working to achieve the Plastic Free Community status include: Teifiside, Cardigan Town, Tresaith, Llangrannog, Newquay, Aberystwyth and Borth. For more information see the new Plastic Free Lampeter page on Facebook, or contact Dinah Mulholland dinah.mulholland@hotmail.co.uk

CLEARING OUT A FOOD CUPBOARD? The Food Bank is always grateful to be considered if you are clearing out a cupboard, and would welcome a call on our mobile 07582 905743 to talk about the kind of non-perishable in-date food that we can accept for our clients. If there are open packets of in-date foods, the Food Bank cannot use these, but Sarah Hulme would be happy to take them for the Lampeter Food Project, the free community meal cooked every Thursday at Victoria Hall. Sarah can be contacted on 01794 821219. Food left in cupboards is often out of date or the tins have become rusty, and we cannot offer this to anyone! This should really be disposed of - so please save everyone the trouble, by not trying to transfer or offer this unusable food. Diolch / Thank you.

MOVING TOWARD A PLASTIC–FREE LAMPETER I was delighted to hear that Lampeter Town Council have voted to support the plastic-free movement and is working towards a plastic-free Lampeter. Like many people across the country I have been examining my own relationship with plastic, and asking myself what I can do to reduce plastic use. WATER This year I have decided to stop buying water in plastic bottles and I will be using a water filter instead. I remember that, not so long ago, many people used water filters, but the rise in popularity of bottled water has meant that water filters are now a rare sight on shop shelves. This can change as we change our habits. I have also begun carrying my own metal water bottle and re-filling it when needed. Hopefully Lampeter Town Council will install a drinking fountain or two around town. Local shops can also offer to refill water bottles from their taps for people. RUBBISH Every time I go for a walk I collect any rubbish I find, and, sadly, there is always some: crisp packets, sweet wrappers, polystyrene food containers and, of course, plastic drink bottles. This casually discarded rubbish often ends up in rivers and then adds to the hideous islands of plastic that are polluting our oceans and killing marine life. It’s time to wake up and each take responsibility for our own actions. I cannot walk past a piece of rubbish now, and I sincerely hope that a day will soon come when no one would ever think of dropping litter on our beautiful country. BUSINESS I have made a plastic inventory of our business, The Mulberry Bush. We already do a lot that is eco-friendly, and there is always room for improvement. It is a great exercise to examine your work and home and acknowledge what you are doing well and what can be improved. See the Mulberry Bush plastic manifesto below, in case it is helpful. I wish you all great success in cleaning your own space of plastic, and supporting the movement toward making Lampeter and surrounding areas plastic–free. Josie Smith, Mulberry Bush

plots of land. However, the principles can be applied to anyone’s situation, and if you look online you will find many suggestions for and from individuals living in upstairs flats in cities. It is the case that in a world of 7.5 billion people in which most live in cities, it is not possible for everyone to have plots of land which are only socially responsible for a very small number of individuals. We need a sense of a whole system with planning for needs integrated on a large scale. Look up Zero Carbon Britain for inspiration on a detailed proposal for an island wide system for 65 million people. Indeed, Zone 6 is the wider community, both local and global. We all need to remember how our lives and choices interact and impact on others, but also may inspire. Permaculture principles can be applied in every space, everywhere and on every scale, addressing the needs of each individual and the whole planet, sustainably. Judy Cooper

Permaculture and use of space Permaculture, in many ways, centres around our use of space, maximising the potential, but always with an ethical, sustainable heart, that values individuals, communities and our place in the whole eco system. Permaculture asks us to consider our space in terms of zones, where the self is the centre and the other zones are within concentric circles around it, like those formed when a stone is thrown into a pond. The first Zone is 0 (zero) and is the self. We need to consider our values, needs, likes and dislikes. We need self care to sustain our inner peace, energy and creativity. Zone zero also includes our home. We can think about how to maximise our use of this space for practicality, comfort and enjoyment. Perhaps start by clearing out clutter – get rid of all you do not consider useful or beautiful. Start from your daily activities and make the space work for you, challenging conventions where they don’t suit your situation. Zone 1 is the space nearest to the back door, and should contain areas that need frequent attention – herbs and salad, your firewood store. Perhaps you can use a warm suntrap wall for container grown climbing vegetables, or espalier fruit trees, or to bring passive heat into your home. Zones 2 to 4 would be for less frequent attention, anything from twice a day to twice a month, according to the size and scope of your plot, and might include workshop, tool shed, poultry, other animals, a green house, a vegetable plot, orchard, woodland. Zone 5 would be a wilderness zone, which supports wildlife and allows foraging. Even a small patch is of great value. Where you have restricted space consider mixed vegetable cropping or “forest gardening” where you make use of different layers above and below ground, so that early ground cover plants later in the season give way to slower growers, and taller plants and trees allow plants of different heights to grow below and around them. Don’t forget the edges and margins – a narrow perhaps dry space may still grow some effective pollinator plants or some herbs, or be a good spot for a bench to relax on. This picture may seem the preserve of those few in the position of having at least a sizeable garden or smallholding. Many permaculturists do live in rural areas like ours, trying to live as sustainably as possible on small 8


Recent Reviews Saturday 27 January, Victoria Hall A line up never to have graced the stage before; we were truly spoiled. An evening fuelled with spoken word, acoustic folk punk cabaret and lashings of feisty female presence to finish. A most powerful punk-infused line up, with accordion-clad epic Hattie Hatstar, the mighty and loved Attila The Stockbrocker, followed by the all female crew, Muddy Summers and the Dirty Field Whores. Hattie's style of much-loved acoustic-comedy-punk folk fun filled cabaret was an absolute joy to watch. Her set was one of social commentary of the last 25 years, of an activist, mother, lover and champion of a D.I.Y lifestyle. To describe it as funny, witty and absolutely awesome doesn't even come close and importantly saves her from getting a real job. If this is all she can do then fair play! Next up was the sharp tongued, high energy social surrealist rebel and spoken word great that is Attila the Stockbroker. His wonderful set touching on subjects such as the trials and tribulations of navigating family life from cradle to the grave, dogs on strings and the political landscape of yesteryear, eluding to a time of self-led nations, Baroc ’n’ Roll and Sacbutts. A most glorious set of wit, fun and thoughtfulness. The evening was finished off with much fun, drunken dancing and tomfoolery to the epic Muddy Summers and the Dirty Field Whores. A most splendid set of female led folk, punk-reggae party tunes with a twist. You can't help but love them and their ethos finishing the night with 'Bella Ciao’, very fitting.

Doc & the Headshrinkers @ Celf Llambed Arts On Saturday 24 February in Lampeter at the Victoria Hall, under the banner of Celf Llambed Arts, a community led live music venue, we were truly, truly blessed. A double bill of Blues and Rock & Roll from local West Wallian bands of epic proportions The Chemistry Set and Doc and The Headshrinkers respectively. First up was The Chemistry Set, a four piece from Cellan. These guys had a masterful, rocking, tight sound with wonderfully executed moments of sheer joy with Larry on the slide guitar; what an absolute treat. Next up was the three piece Rock ‘n’ Roll band from Carmarthenshire Doc and the Headshrinkers, with Doc ‘Headshinker’ on lead guitar, Richie 'mega double-bass' Evans and with John 'I need to get my hair cut' Lovell on drums, The Headshrinkers certainly ripped up at the Vicky Hall. A great set full of energy, masterful stage presence and mighty fine musicianship. Think Jerry Lee Lewis with a very slight hint of Bruce Springsteen and you would be halfway there. Playing tracks from their most recent album 'Crash Land' most noticeably a great tune called 'If there weren't any sinners the saints wouldn't look so good' a 7" vinyl release. An absolutely rocking night (pun intended) was had by all. The whole evening was a sheer delight. Well done to all of the artists and the many volunteers involved. Tracey Styles

Coming Soon … The next line up to be hosted by Celf Llambed Arts is on Saturday 31 March and is set to be a sell-out with the mighty Dreadzone performing. These guys are the real deal, the electro dub pioneers that have been on the scene for over twenty years. Well known for bringing the party and stunning live sets; much dancing will be had. Includes a DJ set from Aberystwyth’s Dubious Reu. Bring it on! This is going to be epic! Cafe opens at 7pm, main venue & fully licensed bar open at 8.30pm Tickets £17 online @thelittleboxoffice/victoriahall or in person from the Mulberry Bush, Lampeter, Andy’s Records, Aberystwyth and The Green Shop, Llandeilo.

Fe adawon ni Ysgol Y Dderi am 6 o’r gloch y bore tra roedd yn dal yn dywyll.Y peth cyntaf wnaethon ni wedi gadael y bws yn Rhydychen oedd tynnu llun y porth i’r Brifysgol sy’n cael ei ‘nabod fel “Tom Gate”. Roedd y porthor yn gwisgo het gron fel y gwelwch yn y llun. Daeth Laura o Galeri Luniau Eglwys Crist i’n cwrdd ac yno fe welon ni feistrweithiau anhygoel gan arlunwyr enwog. Fe ddysgon ni am y Dadeni Eidalaidd,lapis lazuli,deilen aur a glud croen cwningen. Fe wnaeth y curadur, o’r enw Jacqueline, ein dysgu sut i “ddarllen” y stori yn y paentiad “Scipio the Great” gab Van Dyck. Wedyn fe gerddon ni gyda thywysydd o’r enw Anna a aeth i ddangos y Neuadd Fawr i ni lle cynhyrchwyd y ffilm Harry Potter cyntaf. Doedd hi ddim yn bosibl i ni fynd i fewn i’r neuadd gan fod arholiadau yn digwydd yno ond dyma ni ar Risiau Mawreddog yr Hogwarts! Roeddem i gyd eisiau bwyd erbyn hyn a chawsom fynd gyda Dr. Matthew Williams i Goleg yr Iesu am ginio yn y neuadd fwyta hardd. Dyma ni yn mwynhau ein bwyd ! Roedd paentiad o Lawrence o Arabia ar y wal a hefyd un o Frenhines Elizabeth 1. Tynnais lun ohoni gan mai hi a sefydlodd Goleg yr Iesu yn 1571.

Taith i Rydychen Ysgol y Dderi Trip to Oxford We set off from Ysgol Y Dderi at 6 o’clock when it was still dark. The first thing we did when we got off the bus in Oxford was draw a picture of the gateway to the university which is called ‘Tom Gate’. The porter was wearing a bowler hat as you can see in the drawing. We were met by Laura from Christ Church Picture Gallery where we saw some amazing masterpieces by famous painters. We learned about the Italian Renaissance, lapis lazuli, gold leaf, and rabbit skin glue. The curator, called Jacqueline, taught us how to ‘read’ the story in a painting called ‘Scipio the Great’ by Van Dyck. Next we walked with a guide called Ana who took us to see the ‘Great Hall’ where the first Harry Potter film was made. We couldn’t go in because students were doing their exams in there, but here we are on the Grand Staircase of Hogwarts! We were all hungry by this time and Dr. Matthew Williams took us to Jesus College for lunch in their beautiful dining hall. Here we are enjoying our food! There was a painting of Lawrence of Arabia on the wall and one of Queen Elizabeth 1. I drew a picture of her as she was the founder of Jesus College in1571. We learned that Jesus College is called ‘The Welsh College’ and met some Welsh students there, then we walked around finding out about architecture, Christopher Wren and gargoyles.

Fe ddysgon ni fod Coleg yr Iesu yn cael ei adnabod fel “Y Coleg Cymraeg” ac fe gwrddon ni fyfyrwyr Cymraeg yno.Yna, fe gerddon ni o gwmpas yn dysgu am bensaerniaeth, Christopher Wren a gargoeliaid.

The highlight of our trip! Professor Thomas Charles-Edwards showed us the Llyfr Coch Hergest and read bits out loud to us. He showed us two other Welsh manuscripts, the Book of the Anchorite of Llandewi Brefi written in 1346 which is about the life of Saint David and another one about the early laws of Hywel Dda.

Uchafbwynt ein taith oedd cael Yr Athro Thomas Charles-Edwards yn dangos Llyfr Coch Hergest i ni a darllen rhannau ohono i ni ! Dangosodd ddwy lawysgrif Gymraeg arall i ni sef Llyfr Ancr Llanddewi Brefi (1346) sy’n adrodd hanes bywyd Dewi Sant ac un arall am ddeddfau cynnar Hywel Dda. Rhoddodd Sian Witherden gyflwyniad i ni ar y creaduriaid rhyfedd sydd ar ymylon hen lawysgrifau ac anifeiliaid mewn Bwystawr canoloesol.Fe dynnon ni luniau o’r rhain ar ol mynd nol i’r ysgol.

Sian Witherden gave us a presentation about the strange creatures found in margins of ancient manuscripts and animals in a medieval Bestiary and we painted pictures of these when we got back to school.

Wedi rhagor o gerdded, daethom at Gelf Cyfoes Rhydychen lle cawsom sudd a bisgedi gan Sara ac yna fe ddangosodd hi dapestriau gan arlunydd o’r enw Hannah Ryggen a cherfluniau lliwgar anferth gan Nicholas Party. Fe wnaethon ni i gyd roi cynnig ar wehydda a oedd yn llawer o hwyl ac yna roedd yn amser troi am adre. Diolch i chi, Mrs. Helen Duffee am drefnu ein taith wych!

After another walk we came to Modern Art Oxford where Sara gave us some fruit juice and biscuits and then showed us some tapestries by an artist called Hannah Ryggen and some huge colourful sculptures by Nicholas Party. We all had a go at weaving which was really fun and then it was time to set off for home. Thank you Mrs Helen Duffee for planning our fantastic trip! 11

Repair Café / Caffi Atgyweirio

Bwyd Bendigedig / Incredible Edible Llambed

We are pleased that we have found a good (and hopefully memorable) Welsh name for Incredible Edible: Bwyd Bendigedig Llambed! Discussions are well underway to confirm three definite sites for Bwyd Bendigedig / Incredible Edible Llambed to start on in the town centre, with several longer term possibilities also up our sleeves. There was a lot of enthusiasm at the well-attended Transition meeting on Thursday 8 February, and we'd love to hear from anyone else who is interested, either by email - transitionllambed@gmail.com - or come and find us on the Transition Llambed table at the People's Market - 2nd & 4th Saturday each month.

So, instead, we’re using that date to hold a planning meeting for anyone who’s interested in making the Repair Café happen.

Lampeter University Rugby Teams Getting Involved! UWTSD Lampeter Men’s Rugby will take to the pitches of Lampeter Town Rugby Club for a third year to take on the Old Codgers. The men who had played for the same team back in the 80’s when they were students.

The match will take place on Lampeter Town’s pitches Saturday 21 April 2018 3pm KO Anyone is more than welcome to grab a pint in the Club bar and watch what is always an exciting game that only graces Lampeter once a year.

A Space to Clear Your Head

needed it to be accessible all year round, so I looked for classes that I could fit my working day around, and this is how I stumbled upon dance classes. Dancing offers me the wild winds which blow my brains out, it lets me feel the earth beneath my bare feet, grounding me, it fills my thoughts, and my senses with patterns, with sounds, with sensations, it lifts my spirits and sets me free. So, come and experience what dance can offer you, at the ‘Learn to Belly Dance’ class, Fridays, 9.30-10.30am, the ‘Improvers’ class, 10.45am-12noon, or the ‘Fit for Life’ class, 12.15-1.15pm, in Sally Saunders’ Dance Studio, or get yourself along to one of the other Belly Dance classes available locally.

When the stresses of life get on top of me, I need to get away from the thoughts dashing around my head in some way or another. To do this I need to be occupied, or else the chaotic thoughts catch up with me, and I need to be active, or I lie awake all night because my body still has too much ‘zing’ left in it for me to sleep, and I need to be away from contact by phone and email, so I am not pulled back into the demands on me. Over the years I have sought out ways to gain this separation, I have found it on windy beaches, where my brains are blown out, or pottering in my garden, clearing weeds and debris from both the land and my head simultaneously, becoming ‘earthed’, or from dancing to live music at a gig, feeling free and unfettered. However, I cannot always control the availability of these things, and at other times I struggle to get motivated to do them, such as when the rain is pouring, when it is cold, or dark, or when I feel too tired or too busy. Too often time gets away from me, and months appear to have passed between me finding a little space from it all. Therefore, I needed to structure this ‘time-out’ into every week, so I couldn’t be distracted, or put it off, and I

Mel Long JTA Wales Belly Dance Teacher melmaylong@hotmail.com

Sacred Space Teaching belly dance isn’t just about drilling moves and technique. Teachers create a safe space where women can relax, be themselves and learn. There are obvious physical benefits to belly dance including improved posture and muscle toning, but it is so much more. The physical moves are directly connected to our emotional and spiritual well-being. Bodies sway and swing, bend, flow and shimmy, carving, curving, creating shapes and patterns and for me, the tribal aspect adds an extra benefit. Every woman dances as themselves, with no ego but instead, with a sense of their own uniqueness as a beautiful and important part of any formation they dance in. They dance in the space together. They become Tribal Unity. I create the cauldron, the space where the main ingredients, women and music come together. I am the recipe, the story that helps them remember and allow their bodies to dance. Once the burner is lit, fuelled by love, dance fills the space.

Jottings

2018 has been designated the Year of the Sea by the Welsh Tourist Board (WTB).The media attention resulting from the “Blue Planet 11” programme has given it a welcome boost. We might not have the diversity and colours of tropical species in our waters, but we do have Kelp forests and Sea grass meadows (best seen by snorkelling) and the animals that live in our waters and on our shores are just as interesting. You can see Dolphins and Porpoises from the boats out of Newquay; from the cliffs, if the waters are clear, you can also see Jellyfish, and Basking Sharks travelling to the waters around the Isle of Man where they spend the summer. In the larger rock pools you can find Beadlet Anemones, Starfish and, if you are very lucky, even the Long-snouted Seahorse along with Sea Hares and Spider Crabs. In the summer months, large numbers of Manx Shearwaters gathering off Borth create seabird spectaculars. The Welsh islands are some of the most important for these birds that spends our winter in the waters off South America. When the mackerel arrive to feed on the Sand eels and Whitebait, Gannets can form large flocks to dive-bomb the fish shoals. Always remember though that the sea is a dangerous environment and whatever you are doing on the sea or on the shore always check the times of the tides. A day on the shores or the waters of Cardigan Bay can make it a ”Bay to Remember”.

On Tuesday 6 February, 15 ladies braved the cold weather to attend the WI meeting at the Coronation Hall Pumsaint. There were several apologies from those who could not attend, and we were sorry to learn that Jane Holmes was receiving more radiotherapy. Congratulations were given to Sue Jones and Diane Bookham for coming joint third in both the singles and the pairs table tennis competition. Congratulations were also given to Anne Astington on the birth of her second granddaughter. The monthly newsletter was read and names were taken for walks, crafts and other events. Arrangements were made for next months Swper Cowl at the Black Lion in Abergorlech. Arrangements were also made for the Group meeting on 21st March in Llandovery College where the Llandovery choir will be our entertainment. Our speaker for the evening was Liam from the Red Cross who talked us through various first aid scenarios and how to treat them. We all had a go at resuscitation on the dummy and now feel competent about helping out. We then enjoyed our refreshments with some delicious cakes.

Yr Efail – Space to grow

On gloomier days in Jan/Feb/March I am a sucker for visiting garden centres and nurseries and finding new plants (pittosporums to provide foliage for flower arrangements, a sweet box with delightful evergreen leaves and heavily scented winter blooms, a pink leaved phormium and a dark glossy green jasmine) and enjoy finding the right space to plant them to best effect. I don’t always manage this successfully. An area that 4+ years ago I had planned as a bluebell corner has proved to be too wet, so I’m going to try snakeshead fritillaries instead. The garden is an ever-changing space, evolving with the seasons and changing conditions. I have been working on reviving a rather tired border by planting shrubs that have year-round interest or more especially winter colour (greens, reds and bronzes brighten the rather jaded browns of Jan/Feb) and adding perennial and annual summer blooms at the front. Our indoor spaces are being woken up – strawberries tidied and manured, the first early potatoes were planted once the soil temperature touched 10 degrees – hopefully we will be savouring new potatoes by mid-April. We are preparing the soil inside the tunnels for companion planting of tomatoes and peppers with marigolds and shoo fly – sharing of spaces for the benefit of all. We, the gardeners, are beginning to compete for space in the propagators – petunias, mimulus, marigolds, phlox and coleus versus tomatoes, leaf beet, lettuces, chillies, peppers and onions to mention a few. It’s so exciting to see the blank space within a seed tray fill with tiny green dots that quickly develop into two-leaved plantlets and grow into distinctive individual and identifiable plants. Who can fail to be inspired by spring growth? Now is the time to plan visiting other people’s gardens. They are spaces that provide inspiration, enjoyment and amazement. Find local gardens at www.ngs.org.uk and on Ceredigion Gardens facebook page. Shelagh & Steve Yeomans

Carmarthenshire Meadows Group The Carmarthenshire Meadows Group (CMG) have a spring meeting on Saturday March 24 2018 from 10 am to 1 pm, at Banc Y Felin Hall. We are pleased to have Professor David Thorne from Trinity St. David’s Lampeter University attend who will talk to us on “Field Names and Mediciners”. Professor Thorne has extensive knowledge on the significance of Welsh field names and their history and usage. In addition Richard Pryce, the county’s botanical recorder will speak about Plant Indicator species for wildflower meadows. Richard and his wife Kath have been the county’s botanical recorders for many years and they have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with us all. This meeting will end with the AGM of the CMG, and this is a great time to raise any issues or ideas about how the CMG is developing. With many thanks Nigel Loweth

Cothi Gardeners Join us on 21 March when Cothi Gardeners will be welcoming back an old friend, Richard Cain. Richard runs “Penlan Perennials” at Newchapel in Pembrokeshire, a nursery where you’ll find organic plants raised in an environmentally sensitive way. His illustrated talk for us will be all about geraniums, always popular and hardy enough to cope with our local climate. There are many varieties to choose from, so Richard will bring a selection of plants from his nursery for sale at the end of the evening. Guests and visitors most welcome, £3, to include refreshments. The presentation begins at 7.30pm. We are busy planning a big event on 8 July; our very own Plant Sale at Coronation Hall & Field, Pumsaint. Several local nurseries will have stalls where you can buy perennials, summer bedding plants and more. Save the date and keep an eye on our website/facebook page for more details. An annual membership to the club is still only £14, and for this you’ll hear some expert speakers throughout the year. We often organise visits to local gardens and enjoy other informal social events.

Celtic Christianity: Part XXXVIII

Elmo's Delights

Saint Afan (Buellt or Buallt) / Amandus/ Avanus Bishop Reposed 6th century Remembered November 17. The Demetian Calendar, formerly used in Wales, placed it on the 16th. Buallt is from his diocese around Builth in Brycheiniog. Saint Afan was the son of Cedig ap Ceredig, son of Cunedda Wledig, king of Gwynedd. Through this line, he was a cousin of Saint David, patron saint of Wales. His mother was Dwywai / Degfed ("Tenth") / Tegfedd / Tegwedd, daughter of Tegid the Bald, Lord of Penllyn in Meirionnydd who was the husband of the sorceress Ceridwen. He was an ancestor of the 10th century bishop Ieuan who was martyred by Viking marauders. Afan was the founder of Llanafan in Ceredigion, Capel Afan, Llanafan Fawr ("greater") and Llanafan Fechan ("lesser") in Brecknockshire (eventually known as Llanfechan) and the third bishop of Llanbadarn in Aberystwyth. Also Bishop of Builth with his seat at Llanafan Fawr. His martyrdom was due to Irish pirates on the banks of the River Chwefru. Gerald of Wales recounts that Anglo-Norman Lord Philip de Braose was struck blind and saw his hunting dogs go mad when he disrespectfully used St Afans church in Brecknockshire as a makeshift hostel one night. He was told that his vision would only return if he resolved to leave his estates and fight in the Crusades. Some say his sight was restored upon his pledge but Gerald records that he travelled to the Holy Land and fought blind, where he was "immediately struck down by a blow from a sword and so ended his life with honour". His relics are at Llanafan Fawr, that served as a pilgrimage site during the Middle Ages. Saint Afans grave in the churchyard there is inscribed HIC IACET SANCTUS AVANUS EPISCOPUS ("Here lies Saint Avan, bishop") in deeply cut, slightly ornamented Lombardic script. The present tomb is from the late 13th century. Harry Harrison

An Ashram? Where?

mind, and to feel a sense of spaciousness and ease with oneself, with others and with life itself. Here at the ashram we offer a wide range of opportunities to allow you to explore the path of Yoga. Including a weekly class held on Tuesday 9.30am -1.00pm in the focussed energy of our sadhana (practice) hall. As well as attending a weekly class, people are also drawn to visiting the ashram for any of its residential yoga and meditation retreats, and perhaps to simply stay in the ashram and follow the rhythm of its daily routine. 2018 Ashram retreats include The Next Step, an introduction to Ashram teachings, and Emotional healing through chanting and meditation over the Easter weekend. Later in the year we will also be holding our third Festival of Yoga, celebrating Music, Sound and Mantra. Whatever your aspiration or interest in Yoga you’re likely to find something that will inspire and be of interest. We also run a very popular Open Day, which this year falls on Sunday 3 June, where you can experience taster yoga sessions and also enjoy the grounds and gardens. You’ll be most welcome. For further information regarding the ashram and any of the courses we offer, including the Tuesday morning Yoga class, please do not hesitate to contact the ashram office.

The word ashram can often conjure up images of a secluded retreat in an exotic destination such as the Himalayan foothills. Mandala Yoga Ashram offers that seclusion however it’s nestled in the Carmarthenshire hills and about a 10-minute drive from the A40.

The ashram was established in 1986 by Swami Nishchalananda so that the traditional practices of yoga could be made more accessible to those living in the modern world. In this day and age Yoga is often thought of as a form of exercise that can also help us to relax. Whilst this is no doubt a benefit of our practice there is so much more to Yoga. It is a system that encompasses such a wide variety of practices that can be of great value in our day to day lives and also allow us to search for greater understanding into the very depths of our being. Yoga practices offer us an opportunity to reflect on our embodied self, to develop a greater friendship with our

My Blue Hot Water Bottle by Mandy Pickering Its big heart warms bones all flesh, no spine, no teeth a bladder sloshing its hot fluids. Cwtched up to seal belly my breasts in its lap floating through darkness. I touch palms with it and it leads me to sleep a spare body part shares itself easily a tummy curve, a square of back an artery with a gift of heat. It makes a warm dent as if someone had lain there and slipped out for a moment.

Like an old knitted jumper I am unravelling Too worn now for respectable use Each pearl and plain stitch binding Years of holding threads together Now stretched too thin to bear the tension Of life in the 21st Century I had pattern once, and colour And proudly displayed an intricate design Woven with care and consciousness Made to impress, even me, with its attractiveness There they go The tangled threads of knotted hopes Holes where love missed a stitch Misshapen patterns that kept me warm And faded colours, delicate with wear All gone I’m simple now And lighter as the threads unwind Relief to ease the tension What’s left is softer and more yielding. Soon, I shall be just A memory In the mind of my wearer But the yarn, the yarn, is still there Ready to be knitted again When a new design arises in the mind of my Maker What I shall be then?

Rocket Scientists in the Making? by Abigail McKeeman I am a volunteer at 1st Lampeter Brownies and we have been doing the Science Investigator badge recently https://brownies.girlguiding.org.uk/brownies/badges/science.asp In a recent session we themed it around space so this meant space themed games and crafts. One of the games we played was space tag, so this was tag but with the added complication that they could only move in slow motion like they were weightless! This produced some hilarious results as the girls tried to get away from each other and were having to try very hard not to run.

One of the crafts we did was making rockets; it always amazes me the creativity of the Brownies even when we have given them an example to base it on. We had rockets that came with planets and some with fire coming out of the bottom; the best bit was they were all different. While doing the craft the girls also discovered a little more about outer space, such as the names of constellations like Orion, and why Pluto isn’t a planet. However, the activity the girls enjoyed the most was being taught the phases of the moon using Jaffa cakes! Does anyone remember that advert from 1999? We showed this to the Brownies who thought it was quite funny, but of course they were impatient to try it themselves (as you would expect with food!). We tried this out a number of times and some of the girls seemed very keen to then teach it to people at home. Another part of the badge we did was testing food for acidity using litmus paper. We tested nine different foods such as limes, oranges, milk and flour. The results were mostly acidic or neutral and much to the girl’s delight they even got to test each other! This meant that they got to put the paper on their tongues to see what colour they came out as, and very strangely some girls came out as alkaline, most likely due to what they were eating. In another session the girls planted two green bean seeds each and took them home to grow. One was going to be left in the light and the other in the dark, and then they have to record the growth for two weeks (so the experiment should be over by the time you get this magazine). Let’s just hope that the girls remember to water the plants! As we are trying to complete the science investigator badge we also did a team challenge. The girls split into two groups to make a straw tower to hold the weight of a stock pot. It was very interesting to watch them as one group worked together solidly, while the others argued at first before starting to work together. We measured their heights, how stable they were and gave points for aesthetics. The experiment the girls enjoyed the most was creating our own fire extinguisher using bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. This was meant to release carbon dioxide and that would extinguish the tea lights. It worked after a few attempts which produced a few ooh’s and aah’s, including among the leaders! Hopefully this article has shown you all how the Brownies learn through having fun and what we get up to as a pack. I hope it also shows that the leaders too join in and have great fun along with the girls. So if you know a young girl that would like to join Brownies or an adult that would like to help, then we encourage you to come find us and give it a go! We are a friendly group of people and want to see more people join. Brownies meet every Wednesday in term time from 4:30pm-6pm in Victoria Hall. 34

Invitation – Next Steps outside the EU, a conversation

Gwahoddiad – Camau Nesaf tu allan i’r UE, sgwrs

A number of Lampeter churches, and Cytûn (Churches Together in Wales), are working together to provide an opportunity for people of our area, from all backgrounds and walks of life, to listen to each other and to share a vision of the Wales we want post-Brexit. After opening remarks from our chair, Dylan Iorwerth (this won’t be a lecture event) the main part of the evening will be the opportunity to choose which small conversation group to join, focussing on one of the following: • Education, including Higher Education • Agriculture and rural life, the local economy and employment • Citizenship, identity and human rights • Migration and rights of free movement • Wales and the wider world (International development, free trade, peace....) • Democracy and decision making Although the content of the conversations will be decided by the members of the group, by way of example, the Agriculture and rural life group may wish to consider matters such as our hopes for opportunities for our young people – to go or to stay; and, in agriculture, how to balance food production and conservation, and whether this will be easier or more difficult in the future. Or the group members may wish to go in another direction entirely! And after a break, and regrouping, the conversation will continue, asking the question: What Next? This event is to be held at Ysgol Bro Pedr school hall, on Tuesday 13 March from 7 to 9pm, and anyone interested in contributing to this conversation is invited. The hope is that a wide variety of our neighbours and fellow-citizens from all backgrounds will come. The evening will be bilingual, English and Welsh, and conversation groups will be held separately in each language. So! You’re invited: please come, and please pass the message on to others who may be interested! Deborah Rowlands

Mae nifer o eglwysi Llambed, a Cytûn (Eglwysi Ynghyd yng Nghymru), yn cyd-weithio i roi cyfle i bobl ein hardal ni, rhai o bob cefndir a ffordd o fyw, wrando arnon ni’n gilydd, a rhannu gweledigaeth o’r Gymru rydym am ei gweld yn y cyfnod ôl-Brexit. Ar ôl sylwadau agoriadol gan ein cadeirydd, Dylan Iorwerth (ond nid darlith fydd hi!) bydd cyfle i ddewis pa grŵp sgwrs i ymuno ag e ar gyfer prif ran y noson, er mwyn trafod yn benodol un o’r canlynol: • Addysg, yn cynnwys addysg uwch • Amaethyddiaeth a bywyd gwledig, yr economi a chyflogaeth leol • Dinasyddiaeth, hunaniaeth a hawliau dynol • Mudo a hawl pobl i symud yn rhydd • Perthynas Cymru â’r byd (Datblygu rhyngwladol, masnach deg, cadw’r heddwch...) Er mai aelodau’r grŵp fydd yn pennu cynnwys y trafod, efallai y byddai’r grŵp Amaethyddiaeth a bywyd gwledig, er enghraifft, yn meddwl ystyried pynciau fel ein gobaith am gyfleoedd i’n pobl ifainc – mynd i ffwrdd neu aros yn lleol; ac mewn amaeth, beth yw’r cydbwysedd priodol rhwng cynhyrchu bwyd a chadwraeth, ac a fydd sicrhau hynny yn haws neu’n fwy anodd i’r dyfodol. Neu fe allai aelodau’r grŵp ddymuno mynd i gyfeiriad arall yn llwyr! Ac ar ôl egwyl fer, ac yna dod yn ôl yn grwpiau, bydd y trafod yn parhau, gan ofyn: Beth Nesaf? Bydd y noson yn cael ei chynnal yn neuadd Ysgol Bro Pedr ar nos Fawrth 13 Mawrth o 7yh hyd at 9yh, ac mae croeso i bawb sydd â diddordeb i gyfrannu i’r sgwrs. Y gobaith yw y bydd amrywiaeth helaeth o’n cymdogion a’n cyd-ddinasyddion o bob cefndir yn dod. Bydd y noson yn ddwyieithog, Cymraeg a Saesneg, a bydd y grwpiau sgwrs yn cael eu cynnal ar wahân yn y ddwy iaith. Felly! Mae gwahoddiad i chi: plîs dewch, a plîs pasiwch y neges ymlaen i eraill allai fod â diddordeb!

Multiple Sclerosis Support Group - Lampeter & District ‘

Monday 5 February saw our MS Support Group once again meeting at The Mustard Seed Café, in Lampeter. It was our first meeting of 2018. How we can discuss so many things in the two hours, amazes me. The topic for this months Grapevine is ‘Space’. I decided to open it out to the people who came. I gave out a piece of paper and a pencil to everyone, and said that they were going to have to work for their calorie-filled drinks and food that the wonderful staff at The Mustard Seed dish out to us! Then I asked everyone to write down whatever came into their mind when they thought about the word ‘Space’. Here are the things people said; •’Space’ – the emptiness between things. • Cape Kennedy/Canaveral Space Centre – a place I enjoyed, as a child, on holiday. (We got a bit confused in

the meeting as nobody seemed to remember what it was called. I have since looked it up. It would seem that, according to Wikipedia, it was known as “Cape Canaveral” from 1949-1963 and then “Cape Kennedy” from 19631973, and then back to “Cape Canaveral” from 1973 to the present) • Bedroom - peace and quiet – time to think • ‘Space’- empty space in Lampeter town – Y Popty, empty buildings • ‘Space’ – more room for stuff – more room for hoarding • ‘Space’ – rotating light with planets and colour on ceiling and walls. Like space rotating around the room • David Bowie ‘Space Odyssey’ • ‘Space’ – Peace and quiet. Alone but not alone. A place to try and focus my thoughts • Empty spaces where schools used to be in our villages • ‘Space’ – walking in the country, peace and quiet • Spaced out on wacky baccy! • ‘Space’ Williams Bach going, Spar closed • Gravitational Field, the ‘space’ between things • ‘Space’ – places

38

Space’

for peace and quiet • ‘Space’ – moon and planets • My own ‘space’ sitting in the parlour reading for an hour or so • ‘Space’ – Rarefaction between concentrations Please look the last one up yourselves… unless you’re a physicist that is! Thank you everyone. Come and join us on the first Monday of the month from 1.303.30pm, in the back room of The Mustard Seed, Lampeter. We welcome anybody with MS, carers, and anybody wanting to know more, from wherever you are. You are also welcome at our Aberystwyth group which meets in the new Tesco’s community/charity room 12.30-2.30pm on the second FRIDAY of the month.

Well-being at Ysgol Bro Pedr

This term the wellbeing committee have been busy working and designing a sugar awareness board for the lower and upper sector. They have chosen suitable drinks for the age range and added the sugar contents to raise awareness. This is to encourage pupils and staff to drink water. Here are some images to show how the pupils created their campaign.

Internet Safety Day at Ysgol Bro Pedr On Tuesday 6 February, Year 8 pupils received a workshop by School Community Police Officer 809 Hannah Evans on 'Look Who's Talking' (Internet Safety). This lesson was delivered as part of the All Wales School Liaison Core Programme. The objectives of the lesson are for pupils to be aware that online people may not be who they say they are. To ensure they know how to protect themselves and prevent from getting into risky situations and to know where to go for help and support. During the lesson pupils looked at the risks, grooming, checking in online and social networking. This workshop raised awareness and taught the pupils to change their privacy settings on social media in order to keep safe. PC Hannah also held a drop in session in the school reception for parents, family and friends who had any questions. Many thanks to PC Hannah for this useful information. 39

Crossword 41- Spare rough working Grid

This forty-first Local General Knowledge and Cryptic Crossword is sponsored by Lewis’s Bakery. The owners have kindly offered the winner a voucher to be spent in the competition shop. The story of this successful family bakery, run by Paul and Tracy Lewis, started four years ago in the kitchen of their Prize Local Knowledge/Cryptic Crossword No 41 (Jeep) house in Llanfair Clydogau. This was 10 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 the place where they started to bake bread for the local community, 11 12 hoping to do well on a modest scale. 13 14 15 Since that time, however, Lewis’s 16 Bakery has grown so quickly that it 17 18 19 has exceeded all expectations. The 20 21 business now has its own shop and bakery, PRIZE: Voucher where Paul bakes his own bread, cakes and pas22 23 24 25 26 tries while Tracy manages the business side of things. Not only do 27 28 29 they sell straight from their shop but they also make deliveries to 30 within a ten-mile radius of Lampeter. One latest venture has been 31 32 to deliver fresh milk from Nigel’s Dairies, a local business that sells 33 34 35 36 37 milk in recyclable glass bottles. This has proved to be extremely popular. Milk is on sale in the shop as well. 38 39 40 41 Lewis’s Bakery has its own Facebook page, where you can see for 42 43 yourself the good things that are on offer. 44
