With the fresh energy of Spring in mind, key voluntary groups in the Dyfi Valley are going "on the road" to tell people about some of the activities and opportunities on offer to local people.
Events will be held at Glantwymyn, Llanbrynmair and Machynlleth on March 3rd, 6th and 19th, respectively. Wherever people live, they are invited to pop in for a chat and a cup of tea.
Free energy saving light bulbs will also be on offer!
The roadshows are being organised by ecodyfi, Communities First and CAMAD and are free.
Bro Ddyfi Communities First will be explaining how people can get more involved in improving their communities, now that there is a new office in Bryn y Gog in Machynlleth to partner the existing one at Ty Bro Ddyfi in Maengwyn Street.
CAMAD will be explaining how the volunteer bureau works and showing how volunteers are helping other people in practical ways. CAMAD staff will also be available to advise local people about community transport schemes and about their community support work.
Staff will also explain how the various community transport schemes and the Book-a-Bus service work. "This is a great new service connecting Machynlleth with some of the villages," said Andy Rowland of ecodyfi, "but it won't survive unless it's used".
ecodyfi and the Centre for Alternative Technology will be offering people a chance to measure their footprint! Their Dyfi Footprint Project is calculating the ecological footprint of the Dyfi Valley, using a simple questionnaire. WWF has worked out that if everybody in the world lived the same way as we do in Wales, we would need three planets to support us! How many planets do the Dyfi Valley residents use and how can we improve our quality of life while reducing our impact on the world?
Information will also be available about the Mentro Allan activities available this year, progress on the Dyfi Biosphere, the Waste Watchers project and the Credit Union's services.
The event at Glantwymyn Community Centre is on Monday 3rd of March from 3.30 until 6pm.
Llanbrynmair Community Centre is Thursday 6th March from 12 till 4 and
the Machynlleth event will be at the Owain Glyndwr Institute on Wednesday 19th March between 12 and 4pm.
All are welcome.
