MEMBERS of Lower Landsker Trefoil Guild were fortunate enough to choose Wednesday, June 7 for their annual trip to Caldey, particularly as for the rest of that week no boats were able to run due to easterly winds.

However, the sun shone, the sea was calm and the island as lovely and peaceful as ever. Members were delighted that two ladies from Ceredigion Guild were able to join them, together with Bailey, a young cockapoo. As Liz brought her large black Labrador Bryn along as well, it was a motley group that made its way to the village and coffee. 

The usual walk to the lighthouse and a visit to the churches followed, and of course chocolate had to be bought from the well-stocked village shop. The island worked its famous magic once again and it was a very relaxed group that sailed home to Tenby in the late afternoon.

The following day, some members were busy putting together an arrangement of wild and garden flowers as part of St. Julian’s Church Flower Festival,’ Reflections of the Sea’, undoubtedly inspired by the previous day’s expedition.

The next meeting will be a triple celebration, as not only is the Trefoil Guild 80 this year, but so are two members, Barbara Morris and Pat Davies, so a picnic party is planned in a member’s garden on July 5 when the champagne corks will pop as a toast is made to this very special year and, hopefully, the sun will continue to shine on everyone at the Guild.
