Solva WI

The May meeting was held in the Hall on Thursday 9 May. The business included ideas from members on how best to use a very generous bequest from the estate of Mrs Marilyn Davies to the best advantage of all members of Solva WI. An early Summer outing to Penrallt Garden Centre was arranged for Wednesday 15 May and a visit to the Wildlife Centre, near Cardigan, was suggested for Wednesday 3 July. Voting took place for the resolution to be discussed at the NFWI AGM in June. The majority was in favour of “Don’t Fear the Smear”, with a unanimous vote in favour of “A call against the decline in local bus services”. Our link delegate will be informed. The speaker was the ever informative and amusing Sheena Crossley, who brought a bag full of interesting herb samples for members to look at, smell and take home for cuttings to grow. The vote of thanks was given by Jilly Missen. Mary Haughton will organise a competition for the September meeting for the Jean Platt Trophy. Book Club & the weekly walk will take place as usual.
The May Flower of the month competition was won by Margaret Robinson and will be held again in September & October. There were various reminders about forthcoming events and we will be entering the Scarecrow Competition in August.
The next meeting will be held on Thursday 13 June at 2pm in the Hall after which we will leave to visit St Davids Lifeboat Station.

Advent Windows

Many thanks to all who attended the presentation on 9 May to learn more about our proposal to light up the village during Advent this year. Please keep thinking of ideas and spread the word. There is no limit to the number of windows; it is not a competition and not a fund-raiser. It’s just for fun and to brighten the winter evenings. Also ideas for a title would be welcome… e.g. Shining Solva, Sparkling Solva or something much better!

Climate Change Emergency

We believe that Solva Community Council is the first community/town council in Pembrokeshire to declare a #ClimateEmergency – following Welsh Government and Westminster’s declarations. We must act now and we will:
• Pledge to do what is within our powers to make Solva carbon neutral by 2030;
• Call on Welsh Government to provide the powers and resources necessary for Solva to achieve target;
• Address how individuals, families, organisations and businesses understand local and global challenges;
• Develop a community-led Action Plan to reduce Solva’s carbon emissions to net zero by 2030;
• Report within six months with that Action Plan, outlining the leadership role Solva Community Council will take
to achieve this Carbon Neutral Commitment;
• Ask PCC and the Welsh government for help to bring this plan to fruition;
• Investigate all possible sources of external funding and match funding to support this commitment.
