Welsh conversation: On the menu at Caffi Theia on Fridays from 1pm

AMMANFORD artist Cara Gibson, who by invitation has an exhibition at the Senedd in Cardiff between October 31 and December 1, is showing works for sale at Cross Hands’ new coffee shop, Caffi Theia.

Last year, Cara’s painting ‘Draig Goch ar Glyder Fach’, showing a red dragon looking over Wales from a harsh mountainous landscape, was selected to hang at the Senedd.

Limited-edition prints of her original paintings are on display in Caffi Theia, for sale at £45 a time.

Mrs Jo Payne opened Caffi Theia this week (Jul 13) as a coffee and tea shop with a difference. “We have Cara’s art and will also have locally made craft pieces to sell,” she said.

Welsh conversation should be on the menu on Friday afternoons from 1pm, at no charge. “It’s an opportunity for non- Welsh speakers to have a go in a friendly environment,” said Jo.

The menu includes freshly made traditional staples like soup, sandwiches, salad and cakes. “No to frying, and yes to local ingredients,” said Jo, who spent her birthday with friends helping her prepare for the opening, including estate agent Laura Evans who suggested the premises, which has a front counter and room with tables and chairs at the rear. Laura has just taken over Peters and Co at 32 Llandeilo Road from proprietor Peter Evans, who has retired. Gina Quinn, Ralph Costello from Tumble and his brother Tony also helped prepare the cafe for opening.
