Cardigan to sponsor a second Syrian family

Published

on

IT IS NINE months since the first Syrian family arrived to a new life in Cardigan. Fleeing war in Syria they had spent three years among the millions of refugees in Lebanon. Muhanad says  “Then we could not imagine any future for our children, now they have a future again. We are very happy and we say thank you to everyone.”
 
The children have many friends in school and around their home. They speak better Welsh than English so they and their friends play in Welsh together.  Their father has done work experience with a variety of businesses: a restaurant, cafe, with a carpenter, growing organic vegetables and in a charity shop. Now he has applied to college so that he can improve his practical skills to get a job that will keep his family.
 
Karwan spent a year in Cardigan volunteering for charities in Narberth and Cardigan as a translator. He also and attending Coleg Ceredigion where he received a special award for outstanding personal achievement. He came to help us as soon as he got refugee status after fleeing Iraq and a depressing year in a UK dispersal house.  Coleg Ceredigion helped him achieve his dream which was to get into university to study his chosen branch of engineering to continue his career back in Iraq. Croeso Teifi, the sponsoring charity gave him a set of barber equipment. He is now working full time as a barber and saving to return to university in Wales.
 
The fact that the family and single person have had such a successful integration is down to the incredible understanding and warmth of people in the town including the businesses and institutions. The volunteers of Croeso Teifi deliver and manage the work as a tireless and dedicated team. We also liaise with the Authorities; we are part of the Ceredigion public partnership for refugees and work with the Home Office.
 
A new team are now planning to sponsor a second family. Anyone living in Cardigan who wishes to help should get in touch.  It will take some months as there are practical preparations and permissions to get. We can also sponsor an individual to enable one English speaker to join us which is an advantage once we find accommodation for a single person.
 
Other towns or villages wishing to form a group to sponsor should get in touch. We can offer a lot of help and guidance.
 
Croeso Teifi will have a stand at Cardigan Agricultural Show which is on Saturday 4th August.

Penrhyn-coch Brownies compose song

Published

on

PENRHYN-COCH Brownies were congratulated for composing a new Welsh language song recently. The workshops were part of a program of Welsh language workshops organised by Cered – Menter Iaith Ceredigion.

Following a series of workshops with the young singer, Mari Mathias from Talgarreg, the girls decided to compose a song. ‘Yn yr Haf’ was recorded with the girls singing and Mari on the guitar. All the group members received a copy of the song on CD.

Rhodri Francis, Cered’s Development Officer said: “It has been a pleasure to work with the group and we congratulate members on their masterpiece. Thanks also to the leaders for their enthusiasm in securing opportunities for the members to socialise in Welsh outside of school hours.”

Cered’s main aim is to support, influence and develop the use of the Welsh language in Ceredigion through partnership and co-operation, to establish the best possible foundation for the development of the language in the society and community.

Wendy Reynolds, leader of the Brownies unit in Penrhyn-coch said: “The experience has been amazing for the girls and they’ve had a lot of fun doing activities through the medium of Welsh.”

Published

on

THE SMALLEST cinema in a theatre caravan will be on the Promenade in Aberystwyth for three Saturdays this summer.

Staff from Ceredigion Museum, together with the Friends of Ceredigion Museum, will be hosting a series of free entertaining events in and around the theatre caravan on July 28, August 4, and August 11 between 12pm and 4pm.

Sarah Morton, the Events Organiser for Ceredigion Museum said, “We have a series of short local films from the National Film and Screen Archive which links to our summer exhibition relating to the seaside at the museum, in the old Coliseum Theatre. The two minute films show people on the beach and promenade in Aberystwyth as well as Y Borth. We will also have singing from the Showtime Singers to add to the entertainment.

“We will be situated in and near the bandstand and hope to be able to bring some of the traditions of a typical coastal break back to life.”

Besides the theatre caravan, there will be a Guess-the-Object held in the bandstand with museum staff to aid in identifying the mystery objects.

For more details about the caravan and the entertainment, contact Sarah Morton at Ceredigion Museum on 01970 633088
