What was Gwylfa Hiraethog, the grand house on the mountain above Llyn Brenig? Eira Jones was raised there when she was little, between four and eight years old, and she is going to tell the remarkable story of her home.

The first “wooden mansion” was built in 1898, then a luxurious plasty was developed on the site. But by 1955 it was crumbling. Nowadays only a heap of rubble remains. The mansion built by Lord Devonport as a holiday home for grouse shooting on the mountain has a rich history.

Climate Change And How To Fix It
Talk in English by David Sprake
Friday, 21st January 2022, 7:00 PM
This talk will touch on the science behind climate change and some of the solutions that could be practically used to fix it. It will explore humanity’s addiction to fossil fuel energy and how that has brought about changes in the atmosphere, and how that in turn is causing the climate to change on a global scale.

The second half of the lecture will look at alternatives to fossil fuels and if they can practically work in today’s world, together with what can be done to mitigate what has already been emitted into atmosphere. The lecture will conclude with what has been holding up progress to change.
