Hand-bells in the hall!  2nd September is the date for the next Monday Club at Gwynfe Community Hall, which is excitingly going to feature Jane, who comes to us from Treherbert with a collection of hand-bells for us to try.  The bells are easy to ring and do not require the ability to read music, so please come along and try your hand - or just listen to the rest of us!  As usual, the Monday Club kicks off at 1:30 and includes a hot drink + cake/biscuits for a £1 donation.  See you there for this specially musical edition.


On Thursday, 12th September the National Botanical Gardens is hosting this year's 50+ annual event.  Anyone who is 50+ is welcome to attend the event, which includes free admission to the gardens, exhibitions, speakers and workshops.  Dip in to as much or as little as you like.  If sufficient people are interested in going, free transport (from Gwynfe to the Gardens and back again) may be provided by Carmarthenshire Council; to put your name down for this for this please contact Heather on 01550-740512 or via e-mail address: thejohnsons26@btinternet.com  For more information about the event itself (including video clips), please visit their website at http://www.carmarthenshire50.org.uk  Anyone taking part will need to join the Carmarthenshire 50+ Forum, which is free of charge.  If you are not already a member, you can join here: https://www.snapsurveys.com/wh/s.asp?k=145976161874  or on arrival at the National Botanical Gardens.

Fish & chips and music - a winning combination!  On Saturday, 28th September we are combining fish & chips (supplied by Three Horse Shoes fish and chip shop in Llandovery) with the return of Heather Protheroe, the singer from Porthcawl who has delighted us on two occasions already at Gwynfe Community Hall.  Please note that food must be pre-ordered by 21st September, so please contact John or Colin on 01550-740462 (or via gwynfe_community_hall@yahoo.co.uk) to place your food and ticket orders.  Tickets will be £10 and this will include the concert and fish & chips (or vegetarian alternative).  The usual bar will be available throughout the evening.  Doors will open at 7:00 with Heather beginning her performance at about 7:15.  Suppers will be served at 8:30.

Finally, a big thank-you to the members of our community from whom we receive donations via easyfundraising.com  Please join up to that if you haven't already!  There is a change to the way you can now donate to us when you buy items through Amazon.  All you need to do is visit smile.amazon.co.uk, nominate Gwynfe Community Hall Association as your chosen charity and then a portion of your purchase price will come to us at absolutely no extra cost to you!   Thanks in advance for taking the time to do this.
