Felin Talgarth Mill is to host free afternoon teas for Carers every month. Spokesperson and Trustee at the Mill, Sue Bidmead, told us:
‘A successful grant application to Carers Wales, ‘Cuppa for Carers’ scheme means that we have an extra opportunity to share this historic Mill and its beautiful surroundings with those who may not be able to get out and about as much as they would like to at the moment. We’ve already held some sessions and we understand that many Carers like to share an opportunity to meet up with those that they are caring for, so, we welcome both Carers and Cared For to these meetings. The scheme is designed to support all those who are unpaid Carers and as well as a cuppa and cake we also have activities to take part in, so far, our regular visitors have taken part in a free guided tour of the Mill, enjoyed baking free Talgarth Mill bread kits and transplanted tomato plants for the Talgarth ‘community containers’ scheme’.
‘We are keen to publicise these events to be able to attract more Carers to monthly meetings and hope to be able to provide further activities in the future. We want to make sure these meetings are just what Carers need, so a range of activities will be arranged in consultation with those who attend the group’.
If you are an unpaid Carer please come along and join us at the next meeting which will take place in The Granary at Felin Talgarth Mill at 2.30pm on Thurs 18th May. Please phone Sue Bidmead on 01497 847217 if you require any further information.
