We have quite an active Tenants Committee here at Maes Mwldan in Cardigan, West Wales and we meet once a month to discuss any issues, correspondence, reports etc and to arrange a monthly programme of events for the tenants.
Since we started, we have enjoyed quizzes, bingo, BBQs, films, (sometimes followed by a chip supper which the local chippie delivers for us!), and various musical events including having a local professional singer to entertain us. We have held three very successful craft fairs using many local crafts people, e.g. artist, woodwork, needlework, cake stall and even a manicurist for those who wanted posh nails!
A coffee event to raise money for the MacMillan Cancer Charity was also very successful, especially the cakes which were donated by staff, tenants and friends and families of tenants.
We generally invite other groups to participate such as Llysowen and the Fifty Plus Forum. We also put up posters in the surrounding area for the craft fairs and coffee events.
We continue to search for other ideas such as possible outings during the summer.
