BETHLEHEM SPORTS DAY
The annual Bethlehem Sports Day will be held on Sat 21 July, 2.30pm .
We are hoping that the weather will be kind and that we will be able to make use of the field that we have kindly been offered, but we will be meeting initially at Bethlehem Hall and will go on from there.
There will be fun and games for children, plus a BBQ.
All welcome to come along and watch.
Adults £2, children £1.
COMMUNITY GARDEN AT BETHLEHEM HALL
Just a short update on plans for the community garden at the hall.
Hanging baskets will be going up at the end of May and several large pots will be positioned in the area to the right of the hall where the oil tank compound is located. This has been identified as a good place to develop in to somewhere that could offer both the community and passing visitors somewhere pleasant to sit. It will also be a useful outside space for the cafe. One picnic bench will be installed this month and we plan to put one or two more in later in the summer.
Currently, at the back of the area, there is a collection of old, plastic children's toys which have seen better days and are well past their best. Our current thinking is that we will remove these. If anyone would like them and wants to come and collect them for use either at home or to donate to a group that might get use out of them, then please let us know.
If anyone has plants, or pots they would be happy to donate, then do get in touch. It should be possible to create an attractive, inviting space with not too much effort and as a famous supermarket says, 'every little helps'! In this case, even small donations would be much appreciated.
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
Taking inspiration from this lovely weather a Gwynfe Summer Picnic is being arranged for Sunday, 29th July 2018.
The event will kick-off at 2:00 p.m. on land adjacent to Glan Clydach (by kind permission of Steve and Terri Kill), postcode SA19 9NT. Admission is free. Please bring whatever food and drink you want for yourselves - additionally, complimentary tea, coffee and squash will be available and ice-cream will be on sale.
There will be outdoor games for those who want to play or take part - all on a voluntary basis!
Children (supervised by parents / guardians) are of course welcome, as well as well-behaved dogs on leads.
Car parking is available, but please look at car-sharing to cut down on traffic and save space. Also, don't forget rugs or garden chairs to sit on.
Alternative arrangements will be made in case of rain - but, fingers crossed for sunshine...or at least dry weather!
