Cyfeillion - Borth-y-Gest - Friends


Friends of Borth-y-Gest           Events 2016


We aim to hold three open meetings a year, in Spring, Autumn and Winter. These meetings are an opportunity to hear what’s been going on, to ask questions of the committee and to make suggestions for future events or topics for the committee to consider. We also try to have a speaker on a topic of interest to the area.

Village BBQ on the Beach will now take place on Saturday 2nd September at either 1pm or 2pm.  BBQs provided on the beach beside the village carpark.  Hot Dogs and Burgers £1. Please bring extras: Meat, Salad etc and Drinks, also chairs.  Everyone welcome.  Keep an eye on the village noticeboard next to the bus shelter.

Defibrillator Fund Raiser will now take place on Monday 28th August from 12 til 4 in the village carpark (Note this is not an event organised by the Friends of Borth y Gest) Please help the fundraising group for a defibrillator for the village.  An event on Sunday on the front by the car park. Bethan and I will be coming round the village to drum up support, and to see if you have any bric-a-brac or contributions for the 'choc-a-bottle' tombola. 
We aim to get a public access defibrillator for the village. This is a machine that anyone can use in a cardiac emergency situation. The machine tells you what to do, and there is no danger of doing any harm to the patient. The first minutes after a cardiac event are crucial and this machine can provide life-saving support while waiting for specialist medical care.
We are applying to various charities for a defibrillator, but need to raise around £1,000 as a contribution to the cost of the defibrillator and the case to house it in. The owners of Seaview Coffee Lounge have agreed to house it on their external wall, and to provide the necessary electrical supply.
Raffle/ Choc-a-bottle Tombola/ Bric-a-brac/ Children’s Activities, Paramedic demonstration of defibrillator (at approx. 2pm)
If you have any bric-a-brac or ideas for other stalls or activities, please get in touch with Bethan on 01766 515212.
Central to this event is a raffle. We already have some great offers of prizes, but welcome more
