An impressive line-up of speakers has been secured for the 2021 Mid Wales Tourism and Hospitality Conference will be held at The Metropole Hotel, Llandrindod Wells on November 9.
Residents and visitors can now relax, sit back and enjoy the destination play park, beautiful green spaces and River Severn in Newtown thanks to the installation of a series of picnic benches.
The benches, made from 100% recycled plastic bale wrap, have been provided by Open Newtown, with funding from the National Lottery Community Fund Wales, and installed by Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn Town Council staff.
Oriel Davies Gallery has been collaborating with young people from North Powys, artist Erin Hughes, Open Newtown and Andrew Evans Landscapes to create an inspirational large-scale drawing in the centre of Newtown.
The drawing, named Landscape Lines, depicts a sun within a landscape and has been made using a pitch line marking machine. It can be found in the green space opposite the gallery (Gallery Green).
An independent development trust and social enterprise which delivers sustainable community projects to benefit Newtown has the potential to make the town the circular economy capital of the UK.
That’s the opinion of Montgomeryshire MP Craig Williams who met officers Stuart Owen and Adam Kennerley from Open Newtown to hear about the company’s current and incubating projects.
