‘I do!’ – Celebrate your historic day at Ceredigion Museum

Published

on

WITH two stunning rooms to hold your ceremony in, a fully licensed bar and a choice of wedding breakfast options; Ceredigion Museum is the perfect venue for your special day. From this day forward, Ceredigion Museum is an official licensed venue for weddings and is ready to welcome couples looking for a romantic atmosphere in an unusual setting.

Set in a Grade II listed Edwardian theatre, the museum resonates with the glamour and flamboyance of its past. Gilt balconies and plush red décor are the perfect backdrop to creating an extraordinary day, whether that be a traditional, quirky or even off the wall ceremony.

Carrie Canham, Ceredigion Museum Curator said, “Ceredigion Museum is a very romantic place, we often get older couples coming in and telling us about their courting days here when it was still a cinema; there were double seats at the back of the auditorium where I’m not sure much attention was given to the films on show! We’re very excited by the prospect of future visitors being able to come in and share their wedding memories with us.”

In 2017, the museum was refurbished to include catering, a licensed bar and audio-visual facilities, so it is available for a range of wedding options from just the ceremony to a fully catered event and celebration for up to 100 guests. There is also a smaller gallery available, with views of the sea, for more intimate ceremonies. The museum is within a couple of minutes’ walk to the prom, where, weather permitting, couples can have some wedding photos taken with their guests.

Councillor Catherine Hughes, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Culture said, “Ceredigion Museum is such a terrific setting, perfect for making cherished memories of your big day. There’s a lot of flexibility with the wedding packages available and friendly helpful staff on hand to make sure you have your own truly unique wedding day. You will be able to share your special day with friends and family in a beautiful setting, rich in Ceredigion’s history.”

First opened in 1905 as a theatre, the Coliseum has hosted more than five thousand events including Edwardian music hall, plays, early films, political meetings and concerts. After converting to a cinema in 1932, 3800 film programmes have been watched by Ceredigion residents. Today, the museum’s three floors house collections of art and objects from the county’s cultural heritage.

New Quay RNLI lifeboat crew trains with lifeguards

Published

on

NEW QUAY lifeboat station hosted a special training evening with the lifeboat crew and Ceredigion’s RNLI lifeguards last week.

Pete Yates, one of New Quay RNLI’s inshore lifeboat helms, worked closely with Ceredigion lifeguard supervisor, Tirion Dowsett, to plan scenarios for the teams to practice working together in casualty care situations.

A large scale scenario included four casualties to be dealt with by the inshore lifeboat crew and two lifeguard teams on a nearby beach, whilst a third lifeguard team and lifeboat crew members dealt with a separate scenario at the lifeboat station.

Pete said: “It was a great evening of training. We had 9 lifeguards and 13 lifeboat crew in attendance.

“The main scenario included casualties suffering from hypothermia and propeller injuries. A second scenario involved a mechanic suffering head injuries in the forepeak of the all-weather lifeboat and requiring extraction on a stretcher.

“On completion of these scenarios we all gathered back at the station where one of our senior crew members sprung a great act at being a diabetic having a hypo, and being suitably angry and aggressive.”

Roger Couch, New Quay RNLI’s Lifeboat Operations Manager, added: “It was great for our lifeboat crew members to work with the lifeguards as it builds a deeper understanding of each other’s roles and encourages teamwork between us. This is of great benefit when dealing with real life casualty care situations.”

LAST TUESDAY (Aug 27), New Quay RNLI’s inshore D-class lifeboat, Audrey LJ, was tasked by Milford Haven Coastguard to assist the Coastguard with a dog stuck on the cliffs near New Quay.

The volunteer crew launched the inshore lifeboat at 1.50pm with four crew members on board and made their way south down the coast.

Brett Stones, New Quay RNLI’s helm said: “We located the dog on the cliffs by Castell Bach, near Cwmtydu. We stood by while the Coastguard team caught the animal. The dog was unharmed and safe with the Coastguard so we were stood down.

“However, while returning to station we were then tasked to a small vessel with engine failure. We towed the stricken boat with three people on board back to New Quay. We rehoused the inshore lifeboat and it was ready for service by 2.40pm.”

New maintenance Lorries cut carbon emissions

Published

on

The Ground Maintenance Team has purchased three new lorries to support ground maintenance services in Ceredigion.

The new lorries will move Ceredigion County Council’s Ground Maintenance Service’s equipment to and from the grounds that they look after. The lorries will also take cut grass away for composting. This provides the most efficient way of maintaining the areas that the team is responsible for.

Councillor Dafydd Edwards is the Cabinet member responsible for Highways and Environmental Services together with Housing. He said: “The new vehicles replace ones which had provided excellent service for almost 20 years. They are fitted with Euro 6 engines which are considerably more efficient and better for the environment.”

The Grounds Maintenance Team is also incrementally introducing electric-powered mowers, blowers, hedge cutters and strimmers into its fleet. This equipment is better for the environment, is easier to use and causes less noise and vibration.

The new lorries support Ceredigion County Council’s commitment to be a net-zero carbon council by 2030.
