Staff and children at ‘Y Gamfa Wen’, the on-site nursery at the UWTSD Carmarthen campus, were celebrating last month having been awarded their second coveted Eco-Schools Flag in three years.

The staff have been working hard to transform their nursery’s daily routine into one that benefits the environment and teaches them about sustainability in an exciting and engaging way. 

By doing this, Y Gamfa Wen’s commitment to the environment has been recognised by Keep Wales Tidy’s Eco-Schools programme – an initiative that inspires children to be leaders of change in their communities and widens learning beyond the classroom to develop responsible attitudes and commitment, both at home and in the wider community. 

“Being awarded our second Green Flag award is something that Y Gamfa Wen and UWTSD are very proud of. It’s been a fantastic initiative for all involved and it’s great to see the staff and children making positive changes to the way they work and play,” says Delyth Davies, Manager of Y Gamfa Wen.

“This is an initiative that school-aged children are usually involved in so we’re even prouder of our achievement as our children are of nursery age.  It’s fantastic to see the children being aware of sustainability at such a young age.”

The Annual Christmas Fayre at the UWTSD Lampeter campus was once again a great success with several hundred local people attending the event.

Over 60 local craftspeople and producers attended the Fayre, showcasing their wares and selling local produce to local people, contributing to the local economy.

Now a well-established event in the region, the UWTSD Lampeter Christmas Fayre is a firm festive favourite in Ceredigion with a reputation for engaging local businesses and enterprises.

With Father Christmas also making a special appearance, the Christmas Fayre is an event that attracts local people of all ages and the University is proud to welcome them to its campus.
