Gwent Wildlife Trust Starlings and Mindfulness Sensory Walk : 2:45pm on Monday 18th November

Come and join us at Newport Wetlands National Nature Reserve where we will connect with nature and ourselves.

Hannah and Andrea (counsellors and outdoor life coaches) will guide a mindfulness and sensory walk as a taster session to forest bathing and outdoor life coaching.

This event will help you to reconnect with yourself and the natural world through paying attention to all of your senses as well as helping you to notice your own thoughts, emotions and sensations in your body in relation to this experience.

Robert Magee from Gwent Wildlife Trust's My Wild Newport project will share his expertise about Starlings as we watch their Murmuration around dusk.

Public Genomics Cafe

Mon 2 Dec 2019 11am to 1pm (drop-in), Coffee #1, The Friary (off Queen Street, Cardiff CF10 2PB)

Are you affected by a rare or genetic condition? Are you interested in finding out more about genomics and health? Join us for a Genomics Café! This initiative is being run by Wales Gene Park and Genetic Alliance UK in collaboration with Genomics Partnership Wales.

Each Café will be a relaxed, informal opportunity to meet with others and find out about new advances in the area of genomic medicine in Wales. It will also be a chance for people to come together and let us know how we can better support those affected by rare or genetic conditions. In addition to networking opportunities, the Café will host guest speakers, highlight new initiatives and provide attendees with the chance to shape our activities in this area.

This event is FREE to attend but please register via Eventbrite (you can also just come along on the day).

Global Gardens Project

Hello I am involved in Global Gardens Project, a community garden project and we are having a community build over the next 2-3 months, building a kitchen/classroom in collaboration with an architect and carpenter. Perhaps this could be of interest to current students of the U3A interested in getting involved in a community build project? We are particularly interested in making links with people with carpentry/building experience. Contact Poppy at soilandclay@gmail.com or on 07920021893
