Flowering Elbows (to go with green fingers)

We just want to promote an interesting website that we came across recently, Flowering Elbow. They are:
"a small group of people based in Mid-Wales, dedicated to imagining and making better futures. Futures that are rich with creative energy, in which we are empowered to invent, think innovatively and playfully experiment. We will devise solutions to problems big and small and inspire and enable others to do so. Flowering Elbow is committed to progressive environmental and social policies, which, in particular, encourage the re-invention and re-use of materials."
A good partner to CIN then, their website is full of ideas for re-using or making things, go and see!

Nature reserve at Clarach

Stuck for somewhere to go this summer? How about visiting Coed y Cwm nature reserve woods near Clarach? This was established last year but we didn't report on it at the time. Make the most of these special places, and post any thoughts or experiences from this new 25 acre reserve in the comments below.

Huntsman in West Wales found guilty of battering a pensioner

Huntsman Huw Green pled guilty at Haverfordwest Magistrates’ Court after being charged with battery against a 75 year old man who was observing the hunt at the time. It shows that violent pastimes (hunting) attract violent people (such as Huw Green).

Mr Green was fined a paltry £55, a £15 victim surcharge and ordered to pay £100 in costs.
