Last night’s Green Room event in Porthcawl

With another social engagement cancelled, I remembered at the last minute about this event.

I was very pleased that I got there too. The evening was in a cosy venue at Sustainable Wales HQ in John Street.
There were about 20 paying (£3) customers, and there would not have been room for many more!

Nonetheless, the evening was extremely enjoyable. ‘Stainless’ Steve Garrett, guitar playing singer songwriter, accompanied by a highly talented violinist, was the ‘headline act’, and great entertainment. Local writer John Barnie read a few extracts from his latest book, a collection of essays on things that have worried him over the last 10 years. This provoked very lively debate on issues like terrorism, the oil industry and religion. Those that know me well will appreciate how much I relish these topics! (These topics and much more feature in my own collection of essays which should be published in 2011).

All this was accompanied by Fair Trade wine and other beverages and stimulating conversation. In particular, I enjoyed talking to ‘Stainless’ Steve about his day job as the director of Farmers’ Markets in Cardiff. He runs one in Riverside every Sunday apparently. He is going to pass on his handbook for setting up such markets and I will be canvassing views on whether we should look into helping promote a regular Farmers’ Market in Bridgend.

Let me know your thoughts.

Andy
