Have you heard of Warrior Women events?

Warrior Women Events are usually held in venues in Cardiff. During the COVID lockdown, they moved online – meaning you can be anywhere in the world to join in. Regardless of whether they are online or offline, the inspirational events are designed to be thought-provoking, informative and inspiring.

Cardiff Series: The interesting history of Roath Park in Cardiff

Cardiff is my hometown, and I feel very passionately about its landmarks, history and culture. If you live or are from Cardiff, you would have driven past or visited Roath Park at some point. It is surrounded by huge Victorian houses and has always been an affluent part of the city, even if there are a few ‘dodgy’ streets nearby. Most people can say they have walked or jogged around the lake, or fed the birds – or in my case, chased by the birds. There have also been wedding proposals. It’s somewhere where you can watch your children or grandchildren play. You can hire a boat and float around the lake. Plus, the lighthouse, a memorial to the ill-fated Captain Scott, is one of the most Instagrammable locations in Cardiff.

Wales’ Only Thermal Spring in Taffs Well

Did you know that Wales’s only thermal spring is in Taffs Well? Neither did I, and I’ve lived in Cardiff all of my life! I have lived and worked nearby for a long time, and did not know of its existence. It was once a busy tourist hotspot, and now it is nearly forgotten. Can we get Taffs Well’s thermal spring back on the must-see map?

The information sign is impossible to see if you are driving from Cardiff. Driving from Nantgarw the sign is visible (just), but not being a brown tourist sign not many people would think to stop and explore.
