Posted by Llanrhystud Childminder On Tuesday, May 25, 2010 0 comments
Returning after a break of 19 years, the Aberystwyth Seafront Criteriums are back, and have a Saturday evening slot on the racing calendar making them an ideal excuse to spend a couple of days in Mid Wales in close proximity to the Nant Yr Arian MTB trails and some fantastic quiet and challenging training roads in Ceredigion.
Four races in all are planned, starting with Youth Under 12's at 6pm on a 680 metre course on the south side of the promenade, past the famous Pier with Under 16's also racing on this course at 6.30pm.
 After this, the north side of the promenade will also be opened up to increase the course size to 1km for the Go Race event at 7pm and finally a 2/3 race at 8pm lasting one hour plus 5 laps.
Entries are now open on the Ystwyth CC website.
The event is supported by the University of Wales Aberystwyth, Menter Aberteifi, Ceredigion County Council and other local businesses.
The course for the race is a challenging circuit, which is 680 metres for the youth races and later an extra 300 metres of the north prom is opened up for the Go-Race and main event. The race goes anti-clockwise and start and finishes opposite the crazy golf course at the south end of the Old College.

What Will Become Of The Old Consti Cafe?

Photograph of the old cafe on top of Constitution Hill (Constitution Hill is know to locals as Consti).
The Consti Cafe a brand new building now replaces this wooden structure, which has seen better times. What will become of it?

Hill Top Architecture, Aberystwyth, Geo Location: Hill Top Architecture, Aberystwyth, UK
Lat: 52.4255N Long: -4.0829W in Wales, Great Britain

This picture of 'Hill Top Architecture Aberystwyth' taken on an winter afternoon – more precisely, it was February 20, 2010 and the time was 3.00pm GMT. My Canon PowerShot G9’s exposure dial was set to the Aperture f/3.5 setting and that the exposure took 0.001 sec, 1/1250th of a second, the camera was handheld. Other settings include the white balance that was set to “Auto“, being a sunny day – this setting helped me obtain that nice color saturation, which I later enhanced on my computer, using software that came with the Canon G9 camera.

Contact the Elderly - Do You Have Spare Time To Help

Posted by Llanrhystud Childminder On Tuesday, May 04, 2010 1 comments
I was sent this article today:

For many people, growing older can mean increasing loneliness.  In today’s world where social contacts are maintained through texting and twitter, older people can feel left behind. Everyone wants to do more to help, but may worry about how to fit it all in, with work and family commitments of their own.

Contact the Elderly have found a solution, by setting up  monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties at local houses, for older people who would appreciate a bit of company. These groups give warmth and friendship, and the certainty that someone cares.

A group is being set up in Aberystwyth and we would like to tell you about it.

This is a great way of volunteering, as it doesn’t take up much of your time, and is great fun. You can offer to host a tea party in your own home once or twice a year. Hosts provide a simple afternoon tea. You need to like older people, have a downstairs loo and reasonably easy access.

Groups are generally fairly small, with 8-10 older members, and their drivers. They meet on Sunday afternoons from 2.00 till 4.00 pm.

Two Sunday afternoons in a whole year isn’t a huge amount to ask of anyone but for the isolated elderly it means a lot, the visit to your house could be the highlight of the month. To help, you just need to enjoy spending time with older people and live in a house with a downstairs toilet.

Or you may like to be a driver, picking up one or two older people and taking them along to enjoy afternoon tea, just once a month.

We also need a Group Coordinator to organise the monthly outings.

Just call Liz Morgan on 01938 810635 or visit www.contact-the-elderly.org.uk to find out more.

And I guarantee, if you decide to help this group, you will feel just great on a Monday morning.
