ANGLESEY COMMUNITY NEWS
AND INFORMATION

Anglesey Llynnon Mill



There is such a lot going on in Anglesey. If you are new to the communities or just want to expand your social circle have a look below.

I am certain that there is some psychological research out there that advises us that too much television is bad for us. There again, I supposed the opposite is true. It all depends on where the research funding comes from.

HOWEVER There is more than enough research data and plain common sense that guides us to seek out other human company because pleasant distraction is known to be the best antidote to what ails you.

There's plenty going on and Anglesey Winter evenings can be quite long and trying. So make the effort and get out and mix with people who are frieds you just haven't met yet.

FAIRTRADE MARKET STALL IN LLANGEFNI


If you’re like my sister-in-law you did your Christmas Shopping in August or even in the post-Christmas Sales last year.

However, not all of us that are that focussed or organised and it all ends up as a bit of a mad panic. That me I’m talking about. You as well?

This year I’m going to choose and buy my gifts reasonably early and see if I can help the TEARFUND charity and further FAIRTRADE by doing some – if not most – of my shopping at Llangefni Market.

I find that I just cannot motivate myself to buy presents even for those people that I love. I think of each person in turn and I know I’d like them to enjoy the present I buy them. But it rarely turns out like that.

I stand in the middle of Debenhams with a list of people in my hand and I ... I’ll be honest with you, I panic. I panic and I delay. So I end up spending twice as much money than is decent and I always feel sort of empty when I get thoughtful presents from family and friends.

I’m going to be organised this year. Honest! I’m going to go to the TEARFUND stall in Llangefni Market on Anglesey this year. Eirwyn Vaughan and his friends will be there selling Fairtrade goods.

If I can’t manage that then I’ll get hold of the CREATED CATALOGUE and do my shopping either by mail order or on-line . CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION.

One handy side-effect of this is that it’ll be more parcels for our lovely postmen to deliver and that’ll keep them and their families afloat.

I’m fed up of buying the same thing for everyone: a tin of Quality Street and a bottle of wine. I’m sure they enjoy them but it would nice to give a meaningful gift. One that gives pleasure and brings benefits and opportunities to people half a world away who need a leg-up and Fair Play.

So feel smug and sanctimonious if that’s what you want. Whatever you do, take the time to visit the TEARFUND STALL and discover that FAIRTRADE goods are really ... good.

You’re not buying second-hand goods but quality goods made or grown and processed by decent people like you. They want the best for their families in the face of World Trade Tariffs.

I look forward to eating chocolate grown and made in far off Africa. Processed in the country itself and not sent abroad to Germany to be made into lovely bars. If they process in-country now the trade tariffs fall on them like a ton of bricks and render that chocolate unaffordable to sell abroad. Buggers, aye?


So pop over to the TEARFUND stall on Thursdays and Saturdays between now and Christmas and start your shopping now.


In these deeply worrying times of troubled local economies, why not do all your shopping on Anglesey.


Oh yes. Eirwyn used to teach French at Holyhead High School and I believe the correct phrase to use is,

”Merci à vous, Eirwyn.”
