Carmarthenshire Meadows Group Autumn and Winter Talks

The arrival of Covid-19 and the need to respond to the growing pandemic has had a huge effect on conservation organisations, both large and small.  Our group is no exception; we had to cancel our big indoor meeting we had planned at Myddfai in the spring, we couldn’t arrange site visits or other outdoor events involving travel during the lockdown, and we won’t be able to have a big indoor meeting this autumn.  So, in place of the indoor meetings in different village halls around the county, we’re planning to arrange for talks we would normally have heard live, to be delivered via Zoom.  Zoom is rather like Skype, but generally thought to be more versatile, and it’s become very much more widely used during the pandemic.  Zoom
users can meet online, with or without video, so it’s an ideal alternative for us to use to deliver talks, allow the attendees to ask questions, and have a resulting discussion, in complete covid safety while we can’t have indoor meetings.  Many of you may already have used it to attend meetings or talks without having to leave your own home, and to keep in touch with friends and relatives while you can’t meet with them face to face.  If you haven’t used it, do give it a try, many of us hadn’t until the pandemic struck this year; but for now, and probably for some time into the future, it’s the new normal.

The first of what we hope will be a series of Carmarthenshire Meadows Group Talks this autumn and winter will be on Tuesday 27th October, at 7.30 pm, and will be given by Caroline Orr, Senior Project Officer of Afonydd Cymru, and Harriet Alvis of the West Wales Rivers Trust.  Caroline was to have given us a talk at the meeting in Myddfai that we had to cancel.  Full details of the talk can be found here:

If you’d like to attend the talk (and you don’t have to drive across the county to do so!), just click on the link above, and register for your ticket.  We hope you’ll give it a try!

  1. We’d like to go to the wild flower day at the NBGW, and yes it would seem a good opportunity to meet up with other meadow group members if enough of us are there. Andrew & Helen Martin

  2. National Trust –ranger-led walks around Dinefwr Park

    These walks are every fortnight on a Thursday at 12p.m. The next walk is on Thursday the 18th June at 12p.m and the walk will be all about wildflowers in our Castle Field

    Visitors are welcome to book on to any of the walks at our Dinefwr Visitor Information Centre and we then begin the walk just outside the centre. Visitors are welcome to contact me either via email on sarah.jones4@nationaltrust.org.uk or they can call me on 01558 824512. The walk is included in our normal admission prices for the park which is £6.50 per adult or free if you are a National Trust member.

    Many Thanks,
