“Solfach yn Cofio” “Solva Remembers”

On Saturday 10 November in Solva Memorial Hall a “Street Party” will be held to commemorate the centenary of the signing of the armistice.
We hope many of you will choose to join in the event.
There will be 100 places available and a list will reside in Bay View Stores between 6 October and 6 November. Please sign and take one ticket per person. The ticket will entitle the bearer to join in an evening of drama, music, poetry, comedy, singing and dancing. The places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Period dress is optional.
There is no charge for this special entertainment. Instead we ask that you bring with you a paper plate of something savoury to share and any favourite tipples!! Tea, coffee and soft drinks will be available and cakes and sweet treats will be provided.
If you would be interested in contributing further there will be a cooking workshop on the morning of 10 November in the Memorial Hall, led by the WI. (9.30 am -12.30 pm); that afternoon there will be a craft workshop (2.00 – 5.00 pm) to make decorations for the Main Hall and to help lay the tables for the evening’s performance. All welcome, even if you can’t make the show.
In keeping with the traditions of WW1 “Welcome Home” street parties there will be a contribution box in the shop for flour, butter, sugar, dried fruit etc. Street parties were a community affair. Any unused contributions will be donated to PATCH.

Solva Rowing Club

Lovely rowing!
A team from Solva Rowing and Water sports Club took part in London’s river marathon – The Great River Race – on Saturday 8 September.
The course from Millwall, on the Isle of Dogs, to Ham, near Richmond, is rowed with the tide, but this year’s competitors had to battle a strong wind against them for much of the 21.6 miles. More than 300 boats took part from around the UK and Europe. The spectacle illustrates the intergenerational appeal of rowing for all ages.
Solva Rowing Lovelies – aka The Ladies and the Tramp – had rowed together only a couple of times prior to the event, after a hand injury ruled out one of the original members. They completed the course with just enough energy to lift the boat out before the tide turned… and lift a pint or two!
Anyone who would like to try rowing is welcome to come down to the quay on club night – Thursday from 6 pm. Evening sessions are drawing to a close at this time of year, but there will be an end of season bash with a row – possibly a race – followed by drinks and nibbles in the Ship Inn, on Friday 5 October from 5.30 pm.

Solva WI

Our meeting on 13 September was reasonably well attended considering a few members were on holiday. Firstly, Jane Wilde explained the plans for the WW1 Commemoration weekend of 9 to 11 November, in particular, the activities and events on Saturday 10, for which WI members have been asked to help and many volunteered. Following the Business, the illustrated talk on Pembrokeshire women in WW1 was given by Simon Hancock.
His knowledge was extensive and very interesting and much enjoyed by all. Next meeting is on Thursday 11 October when we will need to bring scissors and a glue stick for Christmas crafts.
