A north Pembrokeshire not for profit organisation celebrated its first anniversary on June 6.

Transition Café Fishguard opened its doors in June 2013 as a community initiative aimed to reduce carbon emissions. Over the past year it has prevented an average of 100 kilos of food going to landfill each week, and this figure is increasing as the project grows.

Volunteers collect surplus food from local businesses and create innovative meals for customers at an affordable price. All food collections are local to keep food mileage to a minimum.

On Friday the Transition Café celebrated its first birthday by hosting a special event to thank local people and organisations who helped develop the project . The afternoon also saw the celebration of Transition Bro Gwaun’s recent achievement in securing £10,000 worth of funding from pitching to the Future Dragons Den competition at this year’s Hay Festival.

Children were entertained with a number of fun activities and games organised by the café including pizza making and yoga play.

The event was a great opportunity to celebrate the cafe’s first year in business as well as giving guests the chance to share experiences on all types of green issues to help promote an environment friendly community.

Tracy Whistance Development Officer said: “It has been a privilege to work with such amazing people on this project and we look forward to many future birthday parties for the Transition Café.”
