This year we have begun work on our inspiring new project to permanently house our Solar power installation and provide us with much needed secure storage.
The electricity generated will supply our local farm, the national grid and of course each year our Dance Camp. Looking to the future we hope that this build will constantly supply clean energy and provide a lasting legacy to the Camp.
The funding is coming from profits put into safekeeping from the early years of Dance Camp and from our Auction held at Camp in 2018. We always keep a quota of funds back as a buffer for emergencies but that leaves us short of the total needed to complete the build.
If you would like to donate to help us complete please use the donate button at the bottom of this page.
To help us with the build please get in touch via the Get Involved page and select Core Group with your message, many thanks.
More pictures will be posted soon to keep you up to date.
Starting to take shape! West wall cladding on Sunday with Kate. We braved the rain in the morning and were rewarded with a lovely sunny afternoon. Almost ready now to complete the two gable ends with a hired scaffold tower 4th - 6th June. More help is always welcome, and we have the offer of staying at the Penquoit centre if you are coming from further away.
Another gorgeous day on the field, making progress on the pavilion. We put the last few boards down on the floor and started cladding the East wall. Thanks to Kate. Back again next week if anyone is free to lend a hand. Or come along for a few days 4th 5th and 6th June, when we will have a scaffold tower to work higher up on the gable ends. If you live further away we have the offer of staying at the Pencoed centre. Bring bedding and food. Come and join the fun.!
"Call from the woodyard, our cladding timber is being sawn today and ready to take over to the field. Very excited. I will post some pics when I get the chance. Next few weeks will be getting the walls built. I have made some oak window sills from a tree cut down by my neighbour. I managed to get it sawn into planks after about a year of trying, and it has been seasoning in a stack for a year in our barn. We will have walls and windows, hooray !"
Wall frames almost complete now, big thank you to Jashan, Netta and Penny Shipman for works on the field this week.
Rear wall framework of the Solar pavilion almost complete. With thanks to Roger and Netta for great teamwork today.

Ty Pren has completed the main floor beams. The next phase of the project is getting the roof and walls on, so the frame can dry out ready for the floor. We are very much in need of helping hands with this, so if anyone can offer some time on the field it will help make it happen. Bobby will let folks know the days we will be there please get in touch and let us know you are up for helping us.
