This will be a special event in aid of Cancer Research. Cancer has become a dominant factor in today’s society and most people are touched on way or another either directly or indirectly. Research into treatment and cures are important and very close to my heart after being diagnosed and treated twice for ovarian cancer over the past three years.
We will be holding a raffle and hoping to have a few items to auction to raise funds for Cancer Research and other fun ways of raising money for our cause.
As a very special treat we are being joined by the Black County Peakys from the Black County Living Musuem where some of the filming from our favourite TV show, The Peaky Blinders , is filmed.
Please come along and support us. Tickets can be sourced by emailing email@example.com

We look in detail about an event or issue in the Conwy area
A chill breeze of early morning winter, biting skin the waves gentle and the sea smooth, the sea gulls call but a quiet whisper when compared with the mighty roar that can be heard.
Guttural, primal and fierce it comes from a very different beast. This roar comes from a beast made of metal. Not just from one car though but a plethora (113) of different cars. From Peugeot 205s to a Sunbeam Talbot, there’s a zoo worth of cars and the venue these cars are a part of is the mighty Cambrian Rally.
People from all around the UK and even from across the world come to Wales to compete. The atmosphere is one of excitement, the drivers with smiles on their faces lead off by the mayor of Llandudno himself with the mighty red dragon with its accompanying green and white flying aloft.
Its 8 am. They are ready to give their all. As the atmosphere becomes thick enough to almost be tangible. They set off one by one with the occasional sputter and bang. As everything got under way and people went on to follow their tasks, it was as if you could feel the ground shaking. The air electrified in their wake.
During the rally the cars will be expected to reach up to 100 miles an hour through tough terrain in the Welsh forests. The route offers challenge for the competitors throughout, being some of the best forest stages in Wales. The first car is expected to be back by 3:30.
Having talked to one of the drivers and asked him what “drove” him to rally driving, he replied with the exhilaration of speed and adrenaline and taking on the tough terrain. He also said that being crazy is something that helps, along with having at least a small competitive streak.
The winners, Allie Mellor and co-driver Max Freeman, found themselves spraying champagne over their Proton R5, after a long wait due to a couple of accidents happening along the course. Thankfully no one was seriously injured during these accidents and they have been cleared from hospital. Yet another incredibly exciting event for Wales and a wonderful, wonderful day out for anyone.
