Report given to Annual Parish Meeting 2023:

Our new year has started well and have maintained a strong membership and now meet in the main hall which gives us more space.
We have a good programme, thanks to Chris Thomas with a variety of speakers. Our resolution meeting was led by our advisor and was well attended, one of our members will go to the AGM in Cardiff to represent our group.

We supported the Parish Council’s litter pick when 6 ladies walked the village armed with black bags, and also continue to plant and maintain the planters at the Village Hall. A collection of toiletries was made for the Lighthouse Project and plan to have a second collection later in the year.

A garden visit is being planned for July which will make a change to our usual programme.
