West Wales Makers’ Mart

A little something we have been working on recently is a directory of people who make and do things in West Wales that serve the local community and are often little gems waiting to be discovered. I’m sure you know of someone who provides an excellent resource or service, an artist who doesn’t advertise, someone you know you can go to for that one thing you need. If you searched for them on the internet you just wouldn’t find them, perhaps they don’t advertise or perhaps they just aren’t on the internet.

The West Wales Makers’ Mart Directory is a collection of these Makers and Do-ers, as we call them, in the West Wales area. We cover Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire and a little further beyond too.

Have a look at our website – westwalesmakersmart.wordpress.com where you can download a copy of the latest directory, sign up to be notified of the next issue and request a listing in it too.

We look forward to seeing you.

I mainly wrote this song in the car park at Tesco. When I look back at my original draft on my phone the chorus is there verbatim. The first three verses are great too, I usually drop the last verse when I play this though as a 5 minute song is, well, a bit of an indulgence.

It’s about Joey, if you’ve been to Embercombe you’ll know who I mean. Big love.
