New Daffodil Festival

The Daisybus Gardens of Wellbeing will be opening on 1 April for a Daffodil Festival. Visitors will see around 50
varieties of narcissi and be able to order ones they like for planting in autumn, or simply enjoy the display and stop for a cuppa and homemade cake in the tearoom.
Gardener Sarah Wint says “The origin of daffodil as the common name for narcissi is unknown but as the daffodil
is a Welsh emblem surely a good suggestion is that it comes from the Welsh “Dafydd” our own patron saint”.
There will also be a poetry competition on the theme “A Host of Golden Daffodils & Other Thoughts on Spring”. Entrance is £2.50 Children Free. Gardens also open Thursday – Monday, April – September.

St Davids & Solva Art Group

Mid February saw the group have a great day printmaking with Glen Ibbotson and Carol King.
The session started with a slide presentation explaining the difference between dry-point and mono-prints.
Two groups were formed with each attempting one of the techniques and after lunch they swapped over.
Everyone enjoyed the day and produced some exciting works of art.
Thank you Glen and Carol.

Solva WI

The speaker at our February meeting was Stefanja Gardener, a holistic teacher who explained how good it is for us to be able to sit quietly and de-stress, giving us a few personal examples of her own. She managed to get all 20 ladies present to be silent for quite some time!
The traditional WI Pancake Coffee Morning was organised and raised approximately £100 for the Mosaic Steps Project.
Our next meeting is on Thursday 8 March when the speaker will be Sarah Beynon with a talk entitled “The Bugs March On”. Visitors are most welcome.
