Events at Bethlehem Hall
POP UP CAFE AT BETHLEHEM HALL
The Pop Up Café at Bethlehem Hall will be popping up for the season, opening from noon to 3pm every Sunday until mid October. We will be serving light lunches and home made cakes. There will be specials on the menu each week as well as the usual selection of panini, omelettes, sandwiches and salad platters and cakes.
After 14 Sunday Café's this season, I've been doing the sums, and we have raised just over £1,150 for our little hall. Being a registered charity, this means a great deal, as upkeep and maintenance are a constant drain on our resources, so this income is a huge boost to the funds.
I'll let you all do the maths but if the remaining 11 weeks or so result in similar figures, ... we will be approaching the magic £2000 sum, far exceeding last season's total (which included several other food related events not held this year).
So a massive thank you to everyone who has supported us so far this summer. Every coffee, cake, quiche and panini contributes to the fund.
On a personal note, I'd like to thank Sue, Pam and the team of volunteers who have not only helped during the season, but who kept the whole café going while I was away during July working at the day job.
Hope to see you in the coming weeks!
Diolch yn fawr!

WHAT'S ON AT BETHLEHEM HALL IN AUGUST
Wednesday 22nd August at 7.30pm - Film showing of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Frances McDormand won an Oscar for Best Actress and Sam Rockwell won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. The film also won the Golden Globe and BAFTA award for Best Picture. It does contain some strong language and has a 15 certificate - here's a link to the trailer: https://www.rottentomatoes. com/m/three_billboards_ outside_ebbing_missouri/
Raffle ticket entry - £3.00. There will be tea, coffee and other drinks available, as well as choc ices, popcorn and sweets, but feel free to bring your own beer and wine.
Looking forward to September, the Tour of Britain will be coming through Bethlehem on Sunday the 2nd as part of Stage 1 of this year's tour. Should be fun and a great opportunity to see some of the top professional cyclists as they tackle Bethlehem Hill for King of the Mountain points.
Our super duper new Bethlehem mugs have
literally just been delivered, aren't they lovely?
in the hall, price just £5.
A big thank you to Geoff for letting us
use his lovely sketch of the Old School, and for his painstaking
work in preparing the image ready for printing. Also to
Sue who drove a hard bargain with the company, ensuring
we got the best possible deal!
Look at our new notebook!
In addition to the ever popular Bethlehem jute bag (we actually sold out of them in the run up to Christmas!), we will now be selling new merchandise in 2018, and look what landed on the doorstep a few days ago - really gorgeous notebooks, fabulous quality, complete with the famous Bethlehem star.
They will be available at the hall when the café starts up again at the end of April, as well as at other community events such as the quiz, suppers etc.
Priced at £4.50, they are perfect for keeping in your bag, and they would make great little gifts, a special little reminder of a special little place.
Upcoming Events at Gwynfe
First Aid Course at Gwynfe Village Hall
Would you know the key steps to take in an unexpected medical emergency?
In response to requests for a first-aid course, St. John Wales Training will be running a two-hour session in Gwynfe Village Hall on Tuesday, 28th August at 6 p.m. No prior medical knowledge is required.
If you are interested in coming along please let Heather Johnson know on e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
St. John Wales Training offer their services free of charge, but welcome a voluntary contribution towards their charitable work - as a guide, we suggest £5 per person attending.
Due to a terrible weather forecast (it seems that the heavens are about to open for hours on end!), we have postponed the Gwynfe Summer Picnic that was due to take place on 29th July. The event has been moved to Sunday, 2nd September, so please make a note of the new date. Sorry for any inconvenience that this causes.
Secondly, would any one person (or group of people) be interested in coordinating this year's Macmillan Coffee Morning? This event tends to be well supported in the village and of course raises funds for a fantastic service from which our community often benefits. Backup materials such as the Coffee Morning Kit are available free of charge from Macmillan Cancer Support. The principal date for the event is Friday, 28th September this year, but is somewhat flexible. If you are interested, please reply to us on email@example.com - Thank you.
Finally, Friday, 14th September is this year's date for free entry (from 10:00 to 16:00) to the National Botanical Garden of Wales for 50+ card-holders. Coordinated by CAVS and under the title 'Carmarthenshire Is Kind' there will be guest speakers, stall holders, workshops, taster sessions and entertainment from the Carmarthenshire Schools Music Service. If you have a card, just turn up and get in free. If you are 50+ and do not yet have a card you can obtain one instantly before entering the garden. Transport from Gwynfe is not being laid on this year, but individuals or groups are free to find their own way there and enjoy the day.
