THE Festival of Senses put on a busy fundraising family activity event at Llandeilo Rugby Club over the Bank Holiday weekend.

“This is the second time we held this type of event on the Bank Holiday and it's definitely going to be a fixture in a social calendar of town,” says Festival chair Christoph Fischer.

Core of the event was a popular Tag Rugby competition that had seven teams compete throughout the day.

While the matches went on visitors enjoyed picnics on the grass, browsed the stores and listened to music from Alan Thomas, David Cope and Dewi Jones.

Children's entertainment included Welsh singer and dancer Siani Sonc and then physical exercises such as tug of war, sack hopping, egg races, cricket games and kids circuit by the Class House, Personal Trainer Michael J Davies-Eyre and the Farmer’s Youth.

The Round Table put on a BBQ, Flows Ffairfach provided ice cream and cakes and the Rugby Club ran the bar.

“We decided to take a hit on the fundraising side of things and make the event free,” explains committee member John Meredith Williams.

“We’re always primarily about community and making sure that people are having a good time.”

“It’s important that there are events for families on a Bank Holiday,” agrees Mayoress and volunteer for the festival Branwen Llewellyn-Jones. “And everyone arrived and left happy.”

“Our next fundraising event will be a 5-a-side Football Tournament on October 10 in Tregib Sports Facilities,” announces Fischer.
