Jenkins Bakery celebrates National Doughnut Week

Image
The Jenkins Bakery is doing its bit to help a mammoth charity fund-raising effort during National Doughnut Week (May 11-18).
For seven days every year, bakers up and down the country sell doughnuts to raise money for The Children's Trust, a national charity which provides specialist care and rehabilitation for children with multiple disabilities.
The Llanelli-based bakery is one of a handful of bakery businesses in Wales participating in the scheme.
“We are a family business and always keen to put something back into the community,” said Russell Jenkins, operations director of the Jenkins Bakery.

Over the last 20 years, National Doughnut Week has raised more than £735,000. In 2013, the target is to raise at least £30,000.

Countdown to second International Fascination of Plants Day

Image
Saturday May 18 is the second International Fascination of Plants Day.
Events that celebrate plants will take place all over the globe thanks to this initiative led by the European Plant Science Organisation (EPSO). In Aberystwyth, staff from Aberystwyth University’s Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) will be leading the event.
The aim of the day is to fascinate and enthuse everyone about plants and the importance of plant science for agriculture, forestry, horticulture, food, paper, timber, chemicals, energy, and pharmaceuticals. The role of plants in environmental conservation is also a key message.
There will be interactive exhibits at Aberystwyth Arts Centre and the University Botany Garden glasshouse will be open from 10.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m. Visitors can take a guided tour or wander through the glasshouse themselves.
Dr Julie Hofer, Research Scientist at IBERS and organiser of the event said, “Plants are fundamental to our existence, providing us with a…

A revolutionary new, made-in-Wales, cooking appliance will be making its ‘debut’ at Parc y Scarlets rugby stadium in Llanelli.
The wraps are due to come off the LoCooker – a new concept in cooking.
Three members of the Clyne Energy Ltd team behind the project are huge Scarlets rugby fans.
“West is best, is what we all like to say at Parc y Scarlets,” said Clyne Energy chairman Professor Ken Board.
“We think we’ve got a product that lines up there as a world-beating idea, so what better place to showcase our new invention than Parc y Scarlets?
“The LoCooker is something we are very proud to call a ‘made-in-Wales’ idea. It was invented here in Wales and it is being built here in Llanelli.
“Llanelli has been synonymous with great achievements in rugby. Now we want Llanelli to build a similar reputation for invention and manufacturing excellence.”
The LoCooker brings a new approach to cooking a wide range of food. It operates by a unique combination of water spray, water vapour and convection, …
