Picture Post: Lesley Matthews

Lesley Matthews

We have been asking people to share their photographs in this “strange time” of lockdown. Lesley Matthews was one of our first contributors with a little information about herself and what the pictures mean for her. While the Fishguard and Goodwick Community Fridge is closed, Lesley is coordinating donated food that would otherwise go to landfill. This food, when available, is in the boot of her car in Seaview Crescent, Goodwick. You can message Facebook Community Fridge for up-to-date information. Please leave a donation if you can for the Fridge, and please note that rules about social distancing apply.

It’s a strange time we’re living in and strange things are expected of us. I moved to Pembrokeshire in 2017 – and I’m so glad I did!

Because of my health I’m now on lockdown and was advised to stay home for 12 weeks, but “home” is a wonderful place on the edge of the world, facing the wonderful Fishguard harbour and cradled by the hills that surround us.

I’m coordinator for Fishguard and Goodwick Community Fridge and when that had to close due to the crisis, I opened the boot of my car as a mini Fridge! We get surplus food delivered and anyone is welcome to take what they need.

I’ve recently joined the Facebook group “Share Your View” and I’ve been sharing the views from my garden.

This was taken at six o’clock in the morning of the spring equinox – a wonderful sight!

This picture was taken when the topic on the Facebook group was “Time”. This little dandelion clock reminds us of time passing, of blowing the seedhead to “see what time it is”, and takes us back to a time we all remember and all look forward to seeing once more.

The elephants on my windowsill remind us all of the wisdom and strength within us!
