It was our first time at a gathering of spiritualists, mediums, healers and all things ‘alternative’ at the Selwyn Samuel Centre on Sunday, (Sep 10) since our last jaunt to the fairy tree in Kensington Gardens. Things have also moved on quite a bit since the editor frequented the Assembly Rooms and the Rainbow Cafe in Glastonbury all those years ago, when a man with a beard was a rare sight and the red trousers would have seen me banged up in a room with Oscar Wilde.
So it was with some skepticism and numerous other isms that the team from Llanelli Online dialled in the coordinates of the Jubilee Pool with top board long since removed. Those were the days with Lil, Knobby and Tyrone keeping watch over the unruly youths from Cefn Ceau and Morfa who would do anything to bomb. That is another story.
Stands at the centre included Aura Photography, reiki healing, crystal healing, medium readings and the editor’s particular favourites, the bouncy castle and the Cor Curiad ‘nude’ calendar stall. If that doesn’t make you smile and put a little joy back in your life nothing will.
Deputy Mayor of Llanelli Louvain Roberts officially opened the event along with Miss Wales Hannah Williams. Following a bit of work on the maracas the Deputy Mayor visited the stands and chatted with the stall holders and we were informed, tried out some of the therapies.
Organiser Angela Medway Smith said that the event had been a big success and that she was looking forward to putting on another show in the near future. The crowds may not have attended in the numbers expected but those who did were treated to more drum workshops, massages, Feng Shui advice and crystal rubbing than you could shake a rainstick at.
