Events in Swansea: parks & gardens

Clyne in Bloom

Location: Clyne gardens - show a couple of minutes by car along the sea front from our b&b

May 2017

Clyne in Bloom is celebrated every year during May when the award winning rhododendrons and azaleas of Clyne Gardens are in full bloom and at their most magnificent. As a plant lover this is one place I always reccommend. But it is also good for all the family as there is space to play, trees to climb, a brook to play pooh sticks and ducklings on the pond.

Sunday 19th november

Their Light Still Shines

National Botanic gardens, carmarthenshire - 30mins drive from our guesthouse

 

On Sunday, November 19, there will be a special service in the Great Glasshouse, which will be a time to reflect and remember those we have lost – with the ‘Their Light Still Shines’ event.

This will give an opportunity to remember those we have lost, to thank together and to heal the hurt.

There’s a free bus service to the Garden from Carmarthen – to arrange, contact Euryl Howells by Thursday November 16th on 01267 227563.  (This service is sponsored by a private donation).  There will be free entry to the Garden to anyone taking part in this service, through the main entrance.

There will be specially selected readings, musical interludes from local artistes, as well as singing a few well-loved songs/carols.  There’ll also be an opportunity to reflect and to light a personal candle and to commend the name of your loved one.

As well as celebrating the lives of loved ones at rest, you are invited to offer further support to the T Cymorth Hospice Appeal.  The Patron of T Cymorth is Wynne Evans, the tenor from Carmarthen and host of BBC Radio Wales.  As you remember your loved one you will also make every day ‘special’ for other patients and families.

For further information please contact T Cymorth Secretary, Emlyn Schiavone, on 07779 420626 or Euryl Howells, Senior Chaplain, Hywel Dda University Health Board on 01267 227563 or euryl.howells2@wales.nhs.uk
