The first family arrived in mid-November and are settling in remarkably well. The children started school full time in January, following taster days in December and they are enjoying it.
The family’s father volunteers regularly in a café and elsewhere when he can; the mother volunteers teaching a small group Arabic, once a week. There is room for a few more if you fancy learning this fascinatingly different language*.
Members of the family have been introduced to Tambourine Tots, swimming, karate and football; visits to the wildlife park, a gig in the Cellar Bar, the school Christmas Show. They all took part in the Cardigan Lantern parade, having first made lanterns at Canolfan Byd Bychan.
Croeso Teifi has its AGM, followed by a social event, on March 6th at 7.30 pm in St Mary’s Hall. All Croeso Supporters are welcome. The formal invite will be emailed later with all the required information.
We are looking forward to starting the process of settling a second family. Some of the team are stepping back for a break [thank you for all your work] so we welcome anyone new wanting to get involved. A second family could settle in Cardigan town or in a nearby community. Most of the funding needed for the second family is in place.

Sponsorship in Wales and the UK.
There are schemes coming to fruition in Aberystwyth, Haverfordwest and many other parts of Wales. A newsletter from one scheme is attached. We receive regular invitations to meetings in London and Cardiff to discuss and share experience. If anyone wants to attend or to be kept informed of these, let Vicky know [*as above]. Otherwise here are some websites and Facebook groups to share updates and information:
