Elaine Graham art show at Aberglasney

From today until July 26, Elaine Graham will be exhibiting her work in the Aberglasney Mansion House in the Tywi Valley. Specialising in the wild, windy and always dramatic Welsh Coast countryside, and fusing the traditional and modern, her style is painterly, colourist and expressive. Definitely worth a look!
And why not combine it with a walk around the beautiful gardens and a stop off at the ‘Gardeners Cafe’ for tea and cakes!

Gelli Aur reunion for 'Class of 81-82'

Image
Former agricultural students of Gelli Aur College, the Class of 1981-82, gathered together for a 30-year reunion.
They were very pleased to be joined by Mr Gerald Curtis, one of the former lecturers. The day kicked off with coffee at the Coleg Sir Gar campus at Gelli Aur. There was an update on changes and improvements which have taken place at the college farm. Aerial photographs were shown, comparing how the original farm layout had been replaced by modern structures.
A buffet lunch was enjoyed beneath glorious sunshine to the sound of much chattering before departing to Cwrtmalle farm, Llangynog, Carmarthen. At Cwrtmalle, the former students saw the 2,000 cow super-dairy owned and managed by Mr Howell Richards, who was also a student at Gelli Aur during 1981-82. Howell gave an interesting tour explaining how he was following an American model where the focus for the owner is on management principles rather than just getting hands dirty. The dairy has a team of 22 staff, operating …

Aberystwyth scientists flying high with ospreys

Aberystwyth University’s Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) is collaborating with Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust’s Dyfi Osprey Project in working to re-establish an osprey population on the Dyfi Estuary in Mid-Wales.

First female beer sommeliers announced by Beer Academy

Image
The first two accredited female Beer Sommeliers have been announced by the Beer Academy. Six months after the Sommelier qualification was launched, Sophie Atherton and Annabel Smith were accredited as Beer Academy Sommeliers following a stretching viva examination with Beer Academy Chief Examiner, Dr George Philliskirk.
George said “Traditionally the vast majority of UK beer has been drunk by men. But things are changing. Women do enjoy beer but tend to be more discerning that the average male beer drinker. They like to know how it’s brewed, what raw materials are used and how these affect the flavour of the final product and which beers are the best partners for different foods.
"The Beer Academy’s two new sommeliers are exceptionally well placed to take the beer message to both women and men across the UK.
"A beer lover for nearly 25 years, Sophie is a journalist and beer blogger writing about beer in the national, local and specialist beer press.
"In her work with Cask …

Education services in Carmarthenshire 'good'

Education services for children and young people in Carmarthenshire are officially ‘good’.
That is the finding of the education inspection body Estyn on Carmarthenshire County Council’s education service.
Estyn also concluded that the prospects for further improvement of the service by the County Council are ‘good’, following the inspection conducted last March.
The definition of good used by Estyn is that services have “many strengths and no important areas requiring significant improvement”.
The main findings of the report, published this week, are that outcomes for learners, provision for learners and leadership and management by the County Council are all good.
Carmarthenshire’s Education and Children’s Services Executive Board Member Cllr Keith Davies said: “We very much welcome the findings of the inspection by Estyn of the County Council’s education services for children and young people which confirms that pupils across Carmarthenshire are receiving a good standard of education in…

What to see in Carmarthenshire #005

Albert Rees in Carmarthen
In a nutshell:
Forget Parma Ham, it’s Carmarthen Ham that matters at Albert Rees the butchers in Carmarthen’s Indoor Market. Chris Rees, a fifth generation member of the Rees family, is one of Rick Stein’s Food Heroes. The theory goes that when the Romans conquered Carmarthen they stole the recipe for air-dried hams.
http://www.carmarthenham.co.uk/ Carmarthen SA31 1QY 01267 237687 The longer view:
“When the Romans conquered Carmarthen, they pinched our recipe for Carmarthen ham.” So says Chris Rees, the fifth generation of the Rees family to supply cured hams and bacon to the Carmarthenshire community, a family business that stretches back to the 19th century.
Chris – one of Rick Stein’s “Food Heroes” – makes the award-winning air-dried Carmarthen hams, with his wife, Anne, to a secret recipe, for which they’re seeking appellation status.
You can see the hams hanging high above the counters at Albert Rees, the butcher’s shop Chris runs in the Carmarthen Indoor Ma…

The day is organised by the museum for people of all ages, so children and families are welcome especially as there is no charge to attend.
Opening the event is well known TV doctor, Dr Ann, who is the highly regarded medic on S4C’s popular afternoon programmes Prynhawn Da and Wedi 3. Famous throughout Wales, Dr Ann Rhys has Carmarthenshire links which run deep as she is a member of the governing body of Carmarthen’s University of Wales Trinity St David and a former High Sheriff of Dyfed. She said “It is on such days that children build up happy memories of their childhood. I…

Dunvant RFC celebrating 125th anniversary

Dunvant RFC will be marking their 125th anniversary this coming rugby season.
There will be a host of special events, including a new drive to boost junior rugby during the course of this month.
Martin Newbury, chairman of the club’s junior section said the year would represent a significant milestone in the history of Dunvant RFC.
He said: “We were established in 1877 under the banner of Dunvant and Killay RFC.
“Everyone remembers that we enjoyed tremendous periods of success at the first class level of rugby in Wales prior to the regionalisation of rugby in Wales.
“There was a time when games in Europe against powerhouses such as Edinburgh, Northampton and Narbonne were the norm, with the special games against international teams ranging from the Ivory Coast to Japan a treasured memory for all at the club.
“But that was the past and now the younger guns, which have come through the club are proving their worth, with a 1st XV that has been made up of players only one or two seasons…
