Help conserve our environment and improve our quality of life
ecodyfi is calling for people to realize that high energy prices are here to stay, because half the world's oil has been used up already and the second half is more difficult to get out of the ground.
The Dyfi Valley's regeneration group is also helping the community come up with constructive proposals for the use of the Plas building and grounds in response to the closure of Celtica at Machynlleth.
Both items will be discussed at the group's annual meeting on Thursday 22nd June in the Owain Glyndwr Institute.
Martin Ashby, one of the two Co-Chairs, said these two very different matters showed how ecodyfi is engaged in a wide range of activities.
"We aim to improve the community's quality of life by bringing people together to enjoy and value our natural assets - cultural ones as well as environmental," he explained.
Last autumn's successful Samhain Lantern Festival and the Cli-MachX mountain biking trails will be highlighted in the group's annual report.
Both bring visitor income to the area while serving local people. ecodyfi played a vital role in both.
The meeting will consider the group's forward plan before debating how the Dyfi Valley can move towards using much less oil - without waiting for a crisis.
A key proposal will be to diversify and support local food production, so that we are less dependent on expensive and diesel-gobbling transportation to fill our shopping bags.
All residents and businesses are welcome to attend the annual meeting and forum but are asked to book a place by phoning 01654 703965.
The event starts at 7.15 and will be preceded by a buffet.
