CHARITY SHOW

FB 20150222_18_22_54_Saved_Picture  Anthony Hamilton Shaw (right) receives cheque for 600. 

A big thank you to all who attended the Charity Show held on the 20th February. All ticket proceeds were donated to the "Cariad" charity. A cheque for 600 was presented to Anthony Hamilton Shaw, co-founder of the hard working charity. The event was organised by the Centre Committee, who's hard work, with the help of a few friends, made this a fantastic evening. The "Like Lennon and McCartney" tribute duo were excellent, giving a professional performance with an uncanny likeness to the famous pair. The show was compered by comedian Lenny Dee, who took on the role at short notice. His brilliant mid way comedy spot was also hilarious, contributing highly to the successful event


CHRISTMAS FAIR

The Christmas Fair held on Saturday 13th December 2014 was a great success. The children visited Santa in his grotto and had fun on the bouncy castle . There was also face and nail painting, glitter tattoos and creative activities to make it a fun afternoon - all inside the marquee situated on the front car park. There was also a visit from Mickey and Minnie Mouse (see photos below).

The Craft Fair was the biggest yet with 26 tables selling a variety of hand crafted items, home made cakes etc. and much more.

Llwyth y Llan, Cor Glandulais and the Carmarthen Symphonic Wind Band supplied the musical entertainment.

The Owen Money show was held at the Centre on Saturday 11th October 2014. It was a great success. After a first half of non-stop comedy, the evening was concluded with songs from the 60's by Owen and his excellent band "The Wrinklies". TRUE ENTERTAINMENT.


DEFIBRILLATOR FOR THE CENTRE

Thanks to Money raised by the Ladies Group that meet in the Library every Tuesday, along with a donation from the Community Centre Committee Fund, a life saving defibrillator was purchased from the "CARIAD" charity group in August 2014. The apparatus will be located at the Centre, but will be made available to the whole village. Courses have been organised for anyone who wishes to receive training on the apparatus.

 ICE SKATING at the Centre on 31st October and the 1st November 2013

 

The Main Hall at the Centre was transformed to offer a 9 x 8 metre synthetic ice rink during the half term holiday. It proved a very successful event and was enjoyed by all ages. Slippy the Polar Bear made guest appearances to amuse the children and our Cafe helpers (see photo above). Our lighting and sound system created a terrific atmosphere to show off the facilities at the Centre.
