FUNDING has been received for the fishing industry, fishing communities, groups and organisations involved in the social, economic and environmental well-being of the Cardigan Bay coast and inland waters from St Dogmaels to Barmouth.
The Cardigan Bay Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG) was originally established as a local partnership in 2012 in response to the opportunities opened up through Axis 4 of the European Fisheries Fund 2007-2013.
Building on the successes of the last programme of European Fisheries Funding, Cardigan Bay FLAG have received more funding. This project has received funding through the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, which is funded by the European Union and the Welsh Government.
This community led local development funding will enable a programme of activity to be developed and delivered in the Cardigan Bay FLAG area.
Councillor Gareth Lloyd, Ceredigion County Council Cabinet Member with responsibility for Economic and Community Development said: “The Cardigan Bay FLAG, which is a private, volunteer, community, and public sector partnership, aims to assist coastal communities and the local fishing industry to improve the economic prosperity and quality of life in the area. With FLAG maintaining a strong vision going forward for Cardigan Bay, this is the perfect opportunity for people to come forward with ideas they may have to build successful, sustainable, economically viable local fishing and associated industries to meet current and future challenges.”
Revenue support can be provided for areas including Project Development, Pilot Projects, Feasibility Studies, Facilitation, Training, Mentoring and Consultation.
The 2007-13 FLAG operated across the Cardigan Bay area from Cardigan to Aberdyfi. The new 2014-20 Cardigan Bay FLAG will also incorporate St Dogmaels in the south and Barmouth in the north and will seek to build on the success of the previous programme. They will benefit from the networks and relationships built with industry and community stakeholders in order to drive balanced and sustainable growth for the industry.
If you have ideas that will benefit your local community and think this funding might be applicable, contact Alison Kinsey the Cardigan Bay FLAG Coordinator on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01545 574162.
Applications for the first scheduled evaluation need to be submitted by 5pm, 16 February 2018.

Penrhyn-coch Brownies compose song
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.”

Theatre caravan coming to Aberystwyth
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
