Our friends in the Locmine Committee planning our adventures.
Can’t wait to be together again soon x
Hello friends, this November we will be travelling to Locmine to see our friends for our long awaited visit. We are trying something new and will be flying to Nantes and then taking the train up to Vannes where our friends from Locmine will meet us. If you would like to join us please contact our Chair, Kathy for more information. We’d love to take you with us.
Our friends from Locmine came and were introduced to their lovely Welsh families to spend an evening relaxing and getting over their journey. The following day was a beautiful sunny day, where we visited the Royal Mint, had a fantastic picnic and a brilliant chance to explore St Fagans Musuem. Saturday was then a chance to enjoy being with the hosts and were treated to a day out in Cardiff, canoeing, beach and sea swimming and much more. The evening Soiree was held in the Castle Hotel, Neath with fantastic local harpist Caradog from Pontardawe.
It was a busy trip as ever, with lovely weather and as always a joy to see our friends, tip our hats to friends no longer with us and make new friends who joined us along the way.
Thank you to everyone who made this trip so successful. xxx

What an amazing weekend with our wonderful friends from Locmine. Huge thanks to all who made this visit such a success. Saturday saw an early start and visit to the National Botanical gardens of Wales, where we joined the Llanarthne Dancers and performed Welsh and Breton dances. A quick explore of the greenhouse, butterfly house and maze and a demonstration of duck herding by a dog display team. On to Llandeilo for a delicious picnic in the Civic Hall. After some fancy driving down narrow lanes then on to Dinefwr House for an explore around the grounds, large house and cafe. With the nice weather, Sunday was a day for relaxing or walking. One group went for a walk to the local waterfalls. The afternoon was spent in Clyne gardens completing the Easter Egg olympics, where some suspicious boules activity saw the Welsh team beating the team from Locmine- Hooray! The final soiree was help in teh Glynclydach Couach house, where we enjoyed a carvery, twmpath and singing performances from our Members Lynne and new member Seren. All in all a fantastic weekend with plenty of wonderful memories.
