SOLVA DUCK RACE – EASTER MONDAY 17 April

Please support this major fund-raiser for Solva Memorial Hall.
Ducks enter Solva River at 3 pm on the day – good luck!

SOLVA SURGERY

We have recently purchased a new ECG machine and two 24 hour BP monitors. The total cost of the equipment was £3,500. On behalf of Dr Sujan Dhaduvai and the team, we would like to say a huge ‘Thank you’. We would not be able to purchase equipment like this without the generosity of patient donations. Thank you.

EDGE FESTIVAL

The next Edge Fu ndraiser will be on Friday 7 April in the Memorial Hall and it’s something we have never done before, A TITANIC SPECIAL! Guests will be welcomed aboard the greatest ship that ever sailed, albeit fo r one voyage only, to enjoy the same ravishing menu that was enjoyed by the passengers over 100 years ag o. There will be a Titanic quiz, don’t worry – multiple choice, but what happens when we hit the iceberg? How did the unsinkable ship sink? All will be revealed. This is definitely a fancy dress event; an echo from an age of glamour and poor s eamanship; a reminder that no one is invincible – except you the punter, because for £20 you will have the best meal ever, cooked as always by our team, with cocktails served by our handsome barman who might just be Dai Ball in disguise. Please contact J osh in the Harbour Inn or Ifor on 07971038643, or ifor.thomas@gmail.com.
The Edge Festival is getting ever closer. If you think you can help g et in touch with Kay and Colin Reynolds. You might just fancy serving a few beers or MC the whole event – let’s face it, Ifor is not the look we want. Come on you young Solva people, the Edg e is getting big, jump aboard!
We also need raffle prizes, preferably out of season lets, or B&B, to offer as prizes in our grand £1000 draw. But if you have anything else you want to donate we’d be happy to accept. People are already coming together behind the festival — Ian and Maria of Haroldson House have kindly offered to host the Andy Fair Weather Low Band so many thanks to them for their generosity. We still need to find another fou r beds for the band, so if anybody has any space, please let Ifor know.

Solva WI

Our guest speaker this month was a return visit by Julian Cremona – a biologist whose spectacular photography is a joy to behold. On this occasion he took us to the rain forests of Costa Rica and showed us the diversity of plants, birds and other creatures. Some of these are very rare and the colours, together with the accompanying descriptions and anecdotes, made for a fascinating experience. We are already looking forward to his next visit and to sharing his explorations of other parts of the globe.
Our plans for centenary celebrations are progressing and we will be sharing these with you in the months ahead.
The next WI meeting will be on Thursday 13 April. Visitors and new/potential members are welcome to join us. Our speaker will be J. Coggins who will talk about her time at Chatsworth House entitled “My Life Below Stairs”.
