Visitors continue to come to Talgarth Mill from all over the world with one of our guides counting 17 different nationalities last year. A recent mention in the National Geographic and another in the Guardian will I hope help to bring more people to Talgarth from far and wide, but meanwhile I want to remind those living locally of what the Mill has to offer them.
Those living within the town can apply for a pass so that they can visit the Mill and the Riverside Gardens free of charge as often as they wish. It’s now nearly two years since this initiative was started so this seems a good time to remind you to pick up an application form from reception so that you can come and enjoy our gardens this summer.
A successful grant application to Carers Wales, “Cuppa for Carers” scheme means that we have an extra opportunity to share the Mill with those who are unable to get out and about as much as they would like to. The scheme is designed to support all those who are unpaid carers, along with those for whom they are caring, and as well as a cuppa and cake a range of activities will be arranged in consultation with those who attend the group. Gatherings are once a month on a Thursday afternoon. Please ring Sue Bidmead on 01497 847217 if you require further information, or watch out for a poster on our notice board saying when the next meeting is taking place.
Watch out too for our regular Wednesday Craft Workshops during half terms and the school holidays. These are held in the Granary and there are various ones planned, ranging from making book marks to friendship bracelets, bath bombs and stick weaving. These workshops are designed for families of all ages. No need to book, just turn up on the day and spend as little or as long as you like getting to grips with a new craft. There is a charge but we aim to keep it at a minimum and it’s usually under a fiver per person. For dates see our website, Facebook page or our noticeboard.
Now some dates for your diary as by popular request, Pizza Nights are back at The Bakers’ Table. Booking is essential as the evening in May was quickly sold out. There’s a meal deal of garlic bread, pizza and salad followed by Rowlestone Farm Ice Cream for £15.00 a head. Bambino pizza and ice cream £7.50. The pizzas are made from scratch with olive oil enriched dough and are cooked in the wood fired oven. Pizza Nights are planned for 10th June, 22nd July and 12th August
