Southwest Wales Goat Club Meetings:

We are a group of goat owners and/or enthusiasts who meet on the second Saturday of every month to talk about goats and other aspects of smallholding. If you have ever wondered if these beautiful, productive animals would make a good addition to your family, come and join us for a talk, tea, cakes and raffle. Beginners and questions very welcome!

2018 Meetings:

July 14th - Poppit Sands Seaweed Foraging

We are meeting at Poppit Sands for a session of Seaweed Foraging. Details are :
We'll meet in car park near cafe (overflow will probably be in operation if a nice day so hopefully we'll all get parked ok - worth pointing out to those that don't know Poppit that they'll need change for parking, £3 will cover 3 hours to 5pm after which it's free) at 2pm and then walk across to the rocky area on left side of the beach where we'll try for 30-45 mins of talking/showing and then foraging for hour or so (or longer if wanted).
It will be a spring low tide so tide will be out a long way.
Folk should dress for weather (hat if hot and sunny) and for paddling and scrambling a bit over rocks so some kind of footwear they don't mind getting wet is ideal. And carry appropriate liquids ( water/ tea etc) as well as scissors and a bag for those that want to forage), ideal bag is a mesh one as that allows you to rinse in the sea at the end to try and get rid of sand etc,
Toilets etc available near car park.
We'll finish in plenty of time to get back to car park and have an ice cream at cafe at the end!
If weather stays as now then it's a great place for a swim after
We will be meeting at 2.00pm. Feel free to join us later for an ice cream!
For more details please contact the Secretary
