Cerddwyr Cylch Teifi

Published

on

cylchteifiYM MIS Mawrth, buom yn ardal Cwm Cuch gyda Howard Williams i’n harwain. Gan gychwyn wrth dafarn y Nag’s Head, aethom ar daith gylch ar hen stad Clynfyw. Roedd Howard wedi paratoi taflen o nodiadau am nodweddion diddorol y daith i bawb, a chawsom fwynhau llwybr y Cerfluniau, eirlysiau wrth y miloedd, golygfa dda i lawr ar Afon Cych a’r Cwm, a chlywed am gysylltiadau â’r Mabinogi, hanes y stad a’r hen ardd furiedig. Aeth llawer ohonom i gael croeso a lluniaeth yn Nhafarn y Nag’s Head ar ôl cerdded. Taith hyfryd eto, ac roedd yn dda gweld rhai cerddwyr newydd yn ymuno â ni. Fis Ebrill 9fed, bydd Reg Davies yn arwain taith yn ardal Dinas ac Aber-bach.

Cychwynnwn o Faes Parcio Capel Tabor, Dinas (SN005 384 Cod post: SA42 0XG). O gyfeiriad Aberteifi, trowch i’r dde gyferbyn â lloches byses ar ôl mynd heibio’r troad i Bwllgwaelod). Dewch mewn da bryd i ddechrau ar y daith am 10:30, os gwelwch yn dda. Awn ar daith gylch ddwy awr, tua 2.5 milltir, ar lwybrau i fferm Tre-wrach, lawr lôn dawel a llwybr da i draeth Aber-bach ac yn ôl ar y lôn i ddychwelyd i’r Capel. Bydd un llecyn a all fod yn fwdlyd, dwy sticil, ac esgyniad o ryw 400 troedfedd, y rhan fwyaf ohono ar y ffordd yn ôl i’r Capel, sy’n eithaf serth ar y dechrau. Gallwn ddisgwyl daith brydferth, hanesyddol gydag ymweliad â pherl o draethell anghysbell.

Ac wedyn bydd cyfle i gael lluniaeth yn nhafarndai Trefdraeth a Dinas a hefyd yng nghaffi Flas Fronlas, Trefdraeth. Ym mis Mai, 14eg, cerddwn yn ardal Cwm Soden a Chastell Bach, ger Cwm Tydu, gan adael man parcio Eglwys Llandysiliogogo (SN363 572) (Cod post SA44 6LH), am 10.30yb. Howard Williams fydd yr arweinydd eto. Mae’r man parcio ryw 200 metr yn brin o Eglwys St Tysilio. O’r A487 rhwng Plwmp a Synod trowch i Gaerwedros, mynd trwy’r pentref a syth ymlaen, ar draws yr heol rhwng Llwyndafydd a Nanternis, tuag at Gwmtydu; ar ôl rhyw filltir trowch i’r dde tuag at yr eglwys.

Nid oes lle i fwy na rhyw 15 car ar y tir pwrpasol ond gallwn barcio’n ofalus hefyd ar y borfa ar hyd yr heolydd o bobtu’r gyffordd. Er hynny, fe fydd yn syniad da dod â chyn lleied o geir ag y bo modd, er enghraifft drwy gwrdd â gyrwyr eraill yng Nghwmtydu a rhannu ceir wrth fynd ymlaen. Dewch mewn da bryd i ddechrau fel arfer ar y daith am 10:30, os gwelwch yn dda. Awn ar daith gylch ddwy awr tua dwy filltir ar lwybrau da; dros gaeau i’r penrhyn i’r gogledd o Gwmtydu, ar lwybr yr arfordir i lawr i Draeth Cwm Soden (serth mewn mannau) ac wedyn lan y Cwm a’i lethr ddeheuol i’r Eglwys.

Bydd esgyniad o ryw 350 troedfedd, yn bennaf wrth ddringo’r llwybr serth gyda llawer o risiau ar y diwedd i gyrraedd yr eglwys. Wrth gerdded, cawn weld golygfeydd gwych o’r arfordir, blodau ar eu gorau, Castell Bach, caer amlwg o’r Oes Haearn, cwm prydferth, rhaeadrau annisgwyl, ac eglwys mewn llecyn hyfryd. Ac wedyn bydd cyfle i gael lluniaeth yn y Crown yn Llwyndafydd neu yn y Caffi yng Nghwmtydu. Fis Mehefin 11eg, cerddwn yn ardal Cilgerran a Llechryd gydag Emyr Phillips yn arwain, a hon fydd ein taith olaf y tymor hwn. Bydd croeso cynnes i bawb ar bob taith. Am ragor o fanylion, cysylltwch â Philippa Gibson, 01239 654561 philippa.gibson@gmail. com

Ceredigion Museum’s digital storytelling celebrates LGBTQ+ history month

Published

on

February marks LGBTQ+ History month and Ceredigion Museum has been working with local organisation Aberration to unveil and record fascinating and untold stories of Aberystwyth.

These stories form part of the museum’s ‘It Happened in Aber’ project, which will allow people to listen to the untold stories that have shaped Aberystwyth.

This project was made possible thanks to the ’15-minute heritage’ funding, a partnership between The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Cadw, the Welsh Government’s historic environment service.

Carrie Canham, museum curator, said: “For too long the LGBTQ+ community has been marginalised, or even completely concealed, in history. Ceredigion Museum is keen to share the stories that have lurked in the shadows, to celebrate the diversity and rich LGBTQ+ heritage of Aberystwyth with pride.”

The LGBTQ+ stories researched and recorded with by Jane Hoy, of Aberration, include historic and modern-day characters from the town, including famous academics, poets, mariners, dancers and a spy!

“We are delighted to be working so closely with Ceredigion Museum contributing to ‘queering up’ the museum with lively local stories and events,” Jane.

Aberystwyth has certainly played its part in developing the LGBTQ+ community in West Wales and Sarah and Rosie, founders of Aberystwyth’s ‘Wrecked’ nightclub for women, have documented their fond memories of their venue in the town: “It became a fun and safe haven for lesbians who travelled there from all corners of the county”.

Ceredigion Museum staff and volunteers will be continuing to document stories linked to the LGBTQ+ community, as well as stories linked to specific locations in the town, until April.

From May onwards, The ‘It Happened in Aber’ stories will be available to enjoy in podcast format on the museum’s website as well as forming a digital walking tour of the town, allowing people to listen and enjoy the stories whilst walking around the locations in Aberystwyth.

Councillor Catherine Hughes said: “It’s fantastic that Ceredigion Museum is providing us with an opportunity to enjoy the history and the important contribution of the LGBTQ+ community in Aberystwyth. This is such an important project to document our local heritage. We look forward to listening to all the stories.”

If you can’t wait until the summer, join this years’ virtual Aberration – Between the Lines event on Friday, February 26 from 7pm, when the ladies of ‘Wrecked’ will be sharing some of their stories!

For further information or to share your untold story, contact Sarah Morton, Ceredigion Museum’s sustainability officer, at Sarah.Morton@ceredigion.gov.uk.

Aberaeron takeaway closed for ignoring coronavirus restrictions

Published

on

A Premises Closure Notice has been issued to Paradise Pizza, Regent Street, Aberaeron due to repeated non-compliance with the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (No.5) (Wales) Regulations 2020.

The business was issued with a premises improvement notice on 15th January 2021. It was required to take reasonable measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus, including the need to ensure that staff use personal protective equipment and face coverings. However, officers have since witnessed staff failing to wear face coverings on multiple occasions in contravention of their advice.

Monitoring inspections have shown that the majority of Ceredigion‘s retail premises are complying with the restrictions placed on them during the pandemic. Ceredigion County Council’s Public Protection team will continue to take action against businesses who fail to comply with the coronavirus restrictions. Whilst non-compliant businesses will usually receive advice and guidance, serious or persistent breaches will be dealt with by means of closure powers, fixed penalty notices or prosecution.

This takeaway must remain closed for 28 days, or until Public Protection officers are satisfied that the alleged non-compliance has been addressed.

Premises improvement and closure notices are required to be published by law.

The full closure notice can be found on Ceredigion County Council’s website, under Improvement and Closure Notices: http://www.ceredigion.gov.uk/resident/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-improvement-closure-and-direction-notices/

Directory of services launched by Ceredigion’s Carers Unit as part of Carers Rights Day

Published

on

WHETHER you are a new carer or have been caring for someone for a while, it’s important that you understand your rights and you’re able to access the support that is available to you as soon as you need it. Wherever you are in your caring journey.

It is more important than ever that Carers look after their own health and wellbeing as well as the people they care for. This year for Carers Rights Day, Ceredigion Carers Unit and our partners wanted to ensure Carers have the information and the knowledge that they need at their fingertips, so they can feel confident asking for what they need.

Ceredigion Carers Unit and partners have brought together a Bumper Edition of the Winter Carers Magazine. It’s a ‘Carers Rights Day Directory of services’ bursting with useful information and advice on your rights, including, where to get help and support in West Wales.

There is also a free Carers programme of talks & short training sessions online (also with access by telephone). This programme runs right through until end of March 2021.

Being a carer can take its toll on your wellbeing. Following a recent Carers UK survey, 78% of Carers in Wales said that they have been unable to take any, or a sufficient, breaks from their caring role since the outbreak of COVID-19. As a result of this, surveyed Carers also reported that their health and wellbeing had been affected, with 66% reporting that their mental health had worsened due to the pandemic.

Councillor Catherine Hughes, Carers Champion for Ceredigion County Council, said: “The magazine and the programme of talks & short courses appeals to a huge variety of unpaid Carers. There is something in there for parent Carers, dementia Carers, young Carers, those caring for someone affected by mental health or substance misuse issues and everything in between. And relevant to those caring for people of all ages. If you know of anyone with caring responsibilities who would benefit from this magazine or the free advice sessions, please pass it on.”

Catherine Moyle, Carers Support and Development Officer, Ceredigion County Council, Carers Unit said: “A warm welcome is extended to all unpaid Carers in the county and those that you care for. These are challenging times. Reaching out for support when you need it is a form of self-care and it boosts your resilience. It takes a strong person to carry on caring – it takes a stronger, more resilient person to reach out to others.”

The programme of online sessions and the magazine are available on Ceredigion County Council’s website here: http://www.ceredigion.gov.uk/resident/social-care-wellbeing/support-for-carers/carers-rights-day-2020/ and on their Facebook pages @CeredigionCC under events.

If you would prefer to request a printed copy of the magazine or would like any further information, please get in touch with the Ceredigion Carers Unit on 01970 633564 or e-mail carersunit@ceredigion.gov.uk.
