Eco Fun Day for the Family

An eco fun day for the family at the Ocean Lab, Goodwick, on Sunday 22 August (10am-4pm) will include exhibits, plant sale, youth workshop, eco-games and fishy walkabout, tombola featuring prizes donated by local businesses, second-life books stall, face painting, speakers, cakes, eco films and music.

This is an important fundraising event for the Sea Trust Wales. Anna Elliot, the charity’s project manager, said: “We welcome everyone to our eco fun day, it is a great opportunity for us to showcase our vital ocean protection work, and of course, to invite you, the public, to help us while having some fun too.”

The day includes a Sea Shore Safari, a family fun shoreline exploration with a Sea Trust expert.

Authors Bernadette Vallely and Bethan Stewart James will be giving presentations on How to Become an Earth Steward; Starting an Eco Club, and Climate Anxiety and a Positive Future.

Bernadette Vallely is a United Nations Global 500 Laureate, bestselling writer and groundbreaking environmentalist. Bethan Stewart James is a young Fishguard-born eco activist, environmental communicator, and local litter picker. They will launch their paperback book, Your Planet Needs You!, at the event.

Practical and easy environmental actions will be set out for everyone to understand – from things to do in your garden, to question-and-answer sessions on the big topics like climate change, species extinction and ocean acidification.

Among the companies supporting the charity by their donation of prizes for the tombola are:

Celtic Coasteering with a £110 coastal adventure for two people, and In the Welsh Wind Distillery based in Cardigan with a £42 bottle of specialist Signature Style gin.

Members, volunteers and supporters of the Sea Trust will be busy all week baking delicious cakes, collecting prizes for the tombola and nurturing young plants for the plant sale on the day.

If you would like to send a donation please contact the Sea Trust, drop it off at the Ocean Lab or simply come on the day with a gift.

Free entry, suitable for all ages; games, cake sales and other income goes to the Sea Trust Wales.
