Counting down to the NGS Open Gardens in Cilcain on Saturday July 7th!
Four beautiful gardens will open for the National Garden Scheme: Delfryn, 6 Lon Cilan, Nyth y Wennol and Ty Mawr.
Dogs on leads and children welcome, refreshments and cakes will be available from Cilcain Village Hall, and there will be plant sales too.
A big thank you to Gaz Chirgwin of Coed Mawr Print n Design for printing our great banners!
Does anybody in Cilcain or the locality have a large barn or covered space to accommodate a fantastic sculptor for 1 year?
Nick Eames is a sculptor living and working in Cilcain who is desperate for a larger space in which to create his work, in particular, a piece he is working on for submission to the Royal Academy in London.
In lieu of paying rent, Nick will instead create a fantastic garden sculpture for the person/s who can offer him this working space, which would be worth in the region of £15,000 were it to be a private commission.
‘Kokopelli’, a large recently finished piece, can be seen outside Capel Gad in Cilcain, and ‘The Dancer’ (pictured) can be seen at The Williamson Art Gallery in Birkenhead. More information about Nick and his work can be found on his website: nickeasemssculptor.com.
If you, or anybody you know, would be keen be involved in this fabulous partnership, please get in touch!
‘The Dancer’, Willamson Art Gallery, Birkenhead
'Buddies', a sculpture featuring the thumb-prints of pupils of Ysgol-y-Foel, soon to go on display in the Old School Yard conversion at Cilcain Village Hall
‘Kokopelli’, a mythical native American traveller who brings the promise of a fruitful harvest to each village that welcomes this prankster, healer, minstrel and storyteller. This sculpture can be seen outside Capel Gad, Ffordd y Llan, Cilcain.

Not long to wait now! As the café will be open all day, any donations of cakes will be most welcome!
Our next Community Café, on Saturday 23rd June, will be a Summer Café hosted by the Rainbows.
There will be hand-made gifts on sale, and there’ll be refreshments, delicious home-made cakes and a raffle too!
Pop in between 2.00 pm – 5.00pm!
The Events Committee have asked me to pass on a big “thank you” on their behalf to everyone who supported the 2018 Cilcain Pie-Steddfod, which raised the great total of £436.50 for Cancer Research UK!
Special thanks to Jabberwocky and Stuart Davies for their help in organising this event.
Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances, tomorrow evenings performance of ‘Chansons d’amour’ has had to be postponed until Saturday 1st September 2018. The company is obviously very disappointed, but look forward to returning later in the year.
