Trip to Longleat!

Hello, my name is James Hallet. Last Wednesday we all went to on a trip to Longleat Safari Park. It was fantastic day. There was so much to do there. I enjoyed all the animals on the safari. There were lions, giraffes, rhinos and lots more. The weather was great too. My mum and I really enjoyed the day. We can’t wait for the next trip.


My name is Clifford. I really enjoyed the trip. I went on a train and saw the lions and griaffes. I will definitely go again.


Hello, my name is Sonia. I had a great day. I really enjoyed seeing all the animals and going on the bus with everyone.


My name is Sharon, It was a brilliant we went on a boat to see the gorilla. I saw lots of animals and I enjoyed going on the bus with everyone. It was a really fun day and I met lots of new people. Here is a photo of all of us.


Kelly said that it was a lovely day and everyone enjoyed.


Neil and Ann said – we both went to Longleat and enjoyed ourselves. The best part was seeing the lions and the penguins, going on the train, seeing the gorillas by boat and seeing the seals and ferrets. I was covered with birds!


Rebecca said – it was fantastic. The gorilla was in a bad mood and broke the control of his television set!


Here are more photos of us all.

Time to Meet go to Cardiff Conference


On Wednesday 25th March, Admin members, Robin, Robert and Adam went to Cardiff for Cymorth Cymru’s Annual Conference with Lisa and Julie. The conference was in Redisson Blu and was in response to continuing austerity and increasing inequality within our communities. The conference looked at how – together – we can ‘redress the balance’ to improve the lives of people in Wales who are marginalised and at risk. The two day event will focused on poverty and prevention work. It was held in partnership with Public Health Wales.


We visited lots of the stalls and got some interesting information and cool freebies before we did our presentation. During our presentation we talked about all the things that Time to Meet do, such as organising events and publishing the What’s on Guide. We used the projector to show videos from lots of the groups, like the hiking group, the art group and the admin group. At the end of the presentation, people asked us questions about the work that we do. We really enjoyed talking about what we do to everyone.25Mar2015_0255

After the presentation we enjoyed a great buffet with the rest of the people who were at the conference, before heading home again to Swansea. All round it was a great day and we really enjoyed it. We hope that people were able to learn new things from our workshop.25Mar2015_0256

In the next few weeks the Admin Group will be attending Vision 21 in Cardiff for a serious of workshops to tell more people about the work that we do.
