You may be wondering where in Penparcau CAP is based. Well if you want to come and meet us, we're at the Communities First office every Monday and Wednesday. If for any reason we aren't there, please leave us a message with Dylan or Peter from Communities First. Come along and see what we do.

CAP meets the first of their community groups.

Chloe and I have just had a really enjoyable visit to Penparcau Family Centre. We were able to meet with some of the parents and staff and had a lively introduction session to the project. We were able to show this blog site to the group and explain how they could use one of their own. Chloe explained the theme of healthy eating that will be part of their blog and I was able to show the group how to use digital cameras. After having a little play with the cameras, we downloaded the pictures to a laptop. Meanwhile, Chloe was showing some of the others the digital voice recorder and much fun and hilarity was had by all. Before we knew it an hour had gone by and it was time for us to leave, but not before arranging future sessions - next week we're making smoothies and doing some filming!


There is a great bookmarking service:, which allows you to have bookmarks on the web, not on your own website, which is safer and more accessible. I have put lots of my resources up there now, around environmental and social themes, and welcome your thoughts on them. Let me know if you find any of them useful.

We hope to meet our first group today!

Hello to all bloggers. Iestyn and I have been working out how to use all the technical wizardry, playing with the digital cameras and working out our training sessions. We are hoping to meet with a group up at the Family Centre this afternoon, to introduce ourselves and show the clients what they can do with their own blogs.

CAP says "Hello" to Penparcau and Aberystwyth

We at CAP wish to extend a very warm welcome to the people and community groups of Penparcau and Aberystwyth - Croeso i chi gyd - Welcome to you all.
Over the coming year, we will be working with local community groups, helping them to have fun creating digital stories on environmental, social or healthy lifestyle themes, uploading these to the internet and linking them to their own blog sites. We aim to give the community groups that participate, the skills to tackle local issues using computers and other exciting new technologies.
