Thank you so much to all who made the second Jwrnal Presents another fantastic (sell-out) evening.
Hosted by the brilliant Glynne Arms in Hawarden village, a crowd of some familiar and some new faces joined to hear stories from three fantastic speakers and then bombard them with questions afterwards. Eifion Griffiths let us in to the world of Melin Tregwynt, one of the oldest running Woollen Mills in Wales, Sian Stacey shared with us what it is like to be one of 4 inhabitants on one of Wales' smallest Islands, and how she runs the place, and last but most certainly not least, the brilliant Nancy from Farmers' Lavender told us the story of how back in in 2003 she planted a hedgerow of Lavender, which went on to become Wales' first ever Lavender field, to producing creams and balms now stocked all over the world.
I'm so grateful for having such a great crowd coming to listen, engage and create conversation. In a world where we're so used to reading and watching from a screen, it's nice to do something 'in real life', isn't it?
Jwrnal Presents #03.? Go on then.
(PSSST..let's take this further, branch out, go places, who's in?)
