Members of Cardigan Moose Lodge: Enjoying a visit to Cardigan RNLI Station

Members of Cardigan Moose Lodge: Enjoying a visit to Cardigan RNLI Station

A CONDUCTED tour and extremely informative talk was thoroughly enjoyed by members of Cardigan Moose Lodge recently when they visited Cardigan RNLI station.

Organised by Lodge President John Brown, the visit and the talk given by RNLI member Simon Mansfield showed members how the equipment all worked and why.

From a water parachute to a puncture repair, Simon Mansfield talked about how the cost of all RNLI stations throughout the UK is all paid for by donations from the public, and the cost amounts to an eye-watering sum.

After their visit, Cardigan Moose Lodge went to The White Hart pub where a delicious meal was enjoyed by all.

On Saturday, September 24, members organised a Cheese and Wine night at the Moose Hall. Several friends of members came along to support and it was commented that it was ‘probably the best cheese board they’d ever seen’, and the wine was okay too!

An Italian Night was organised at the home of Tricia Fox, where members and friends were treated to a delicious Italian menu prepared by Mrs Fox and her trusty bunch of helpers. The frivolity went well on into the glorious summer evening.

Looking to the future, Cardigan Moose Lodge have organised a Prize Bingo on Friday, November 11, beginning at 7.30pm for an 8pm start. Light refreshments will be provided in the entry.

The Moose Lodge will be holding a Christmas Market on Saturday, November 19 from 10am to 4pm ish, depending on how busy the market is. Anyone wishing to join us can book a table for £10 for 3ft up to £28 for 12ft.

A bar, toilet facilities and refreshments will also be available for stall holders and visitors. An entry form is available via email from agharries150@hotmail. com, or from the event organiser Sarah Wiseman, who is taking the bookings for the Christmas Market, via post at 10 Lon Hywel, Whitland, SA34 0BE.

NEW QUAY RNLI crew members Huw Williams and Dylan Price recently passed out as inshore lifeboat helms.

They were put through their paces by an RNLI Assessor on Monday (Aug 13) with a written exam ashore and a practical assessment afloat on the D class inshore lifeboat.

Roger Couch, Lifeboat Operation Manager of New Quay RNLI said: “As well as responding to emergencies our volunteer crew members spend a lot of time training in order to maintain their knowledge and skills.

“Both crew members have worked very hard over the past 12 months to complete all the training units needed and have now passed the final stage.

“Our lifeboats are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round and having seven qualified helms for our inshore lifeboat provides us with additional flexibility.”

Huw Williams added:“Dylan and I would like to thank all the crew here at New Quay lifeboat station for their help over the last 12 months. We could not have done it without their support.”

Man assaulted nurses while being restrained

Published

on

A PRE-SENTENCE report will be prepared on a Ceredigion man who assaulted two nurses and destroyed an extractor fan.

Lewis Hill, aged 24, of Brynhoffnant, appeared before Haverfordwest Magistrates Court on Tuesday (Aug 14) to plead guilty to the three charges.

Prosecuting, Mr Vaughan Pritchard-Jones told the Court: “At 11pm in the evening on January 30, the defendant was on the roof of Bronglais Hospital threatening to jump off. Police and medical personnel attended and were able to talk him down.

“He was taken to the Cwm Seren ward in St Davids Park, Carmarthen, where they arrived at 1:03am the following morning. During the course of being assessed he became aggressive and had to be restrained by staff. He kicked out at the first nurse and was then put on the floor.

“Whilst on the floor he was throwing his head back and forth and the staff nurse, who was concerned for him, tried to hold his head but he continued to throw his head and because of the force he was using he trapped her finger onto the floor.

“The charge did originally read as common assault but the nurse went to get her finger x-rayed which revealed the fracture.

“After that incident he got free and he started damaging an extractor fan which he completely destroyed.
“I am not sure why the case has taken so long to come here but at the time of the offence he was on a suspended prison sentence, the period for which has now elapsed.”

Defending, Mrs Katie Hanson added: “He is extremely sorry for his actions on that night. He was on the roof of Bronglais Hospital trying to commit suicide. There are serious mental health issues but he accepts he was struggling on the floor but he did not intentionally hurt anyone and he apologises for his actions.”

Magistrates ordered that a pre-sentence report be prepared and Hill was released on unconditional bail and must return to court on Wednesday, August 29 for sentencing.
