Community Spirit and Energy

Last weekend we went out to the Narberth Food Festival.  What a delight, so much to tempt us, luckily we hadn't eaten and treated ourselves to some wild boar burgers.  Mighty fine they were too.  The sights, sounds and smells were divine.

We also went to Llangolman's Church fundraising.  They were holding a Michaelmas Fair.  St Colman's Church is a sister church to St Meilyrs and both are part of the West Preseli Group of Churches.  I think it's great when we come together sometimes to support each other.  It builds community cohesion and makes you feel part of something much larger.

Sunday Her Next Door and I walked for two miles to take part in a 24hr, 90 mile sponsored walk/run to celebrate 90 years of the British Legion.  It was so well supported that in fact the anchor of the whole event walked 100 miles.  Well done Carwyn Phillips - very impressive.  I hope lots of money was raised for such a wonderful cause. 

Now we are just having our solar panels fitted.  Yesterday the raw materials were delivered and today they've gone up on the garage roof.  Amazingly quick.  I shall update you on the amount of energy that we can actually use for free and the money we recoup once we're plugged into the grid.  We have opted to purchase and take full advantage of the Feed-in Tariff.

A more interesting view than normal.

This is wonderful, Lins. July's project taking shape in September. (Perhaps a bit late, but better than never.) And it's a two-way process. Good deal!
Seems that you've had an interesting weekend, too. Community spirit, indeed. So often lacking in the city. Sigh.

Yes Mr Bear, must admit a bit of a delay but a large financial investment always needs some time to consider. It appears though we'll get a better return than leaving the money in ISAs\saving accounts at the moment.

Time will tell; but it is already rather satisfying not having to rely totally on the utility companies who are forever increasing prices in an alarming fashion.
