Visiting Llanrhos Lawn Cemetery this evening I spotted the sun shining on a beautiful old memorial over the wall in St.Hilary’s Churchyard. I had to photograph it. It was warm and the birds were singing in the trees and as I looked around I realised that I was the only visitor. Before the pandemic, there would always be someone to talk to on an evening like this. Someone leaving flowers or tending a grave.

Standing there made me think of all those who are now alone. It’s been hard for all of us, but think about those who have been left alone because of Covid, and who are struggling with bereavement as well as loneliness. It’s overwhelming.

We could all do with support as we ease out of the pandemic, but many will need a little extra. Perhaps we should go out of our way to help those who are really suffering.

A letter, a call, a wave, taking time to listen. Those little things can be enough to brighten our day.

We were privileged to have the family of the late Mr Martin John Jones be the first to use No 12 for a celebration of his life, led by his lovely sister Lorette. Even though we are still under difficult restrictions we were able to gather to say goodbye.

We would very much like to thank Lorette and Carla for their faith in us.

It was great to see Mr Trystan Lewis today. A man of many talents and a most incredible voice. He immediately jumped straight onto our piano to challenge Ray and John.

Diolch Trystan. Da ni’n edrych ymlaen i gweithio efo chi yn y dyfodol.

We were finally able to start a really important project on Saturday evening. We had purposely left two large walls empty in one of our arranging rooms at No.12 so we could help to promote the work of local artists and photographers. Not to sell, but to raise awareness and to give those who visit a chance to look at something beautiful.

We are hoping that over the coming months and years we can promote our incredibly talented local artists in this way.

Our very first artist is Jon Kidd, and we are overjoyed that he has agreed to display some of his paintings with us. Here is a little information about Jon.

“Originally from the Peak District, Derbyshire, Jon moved to Wales to study FdA Photography, BA (Hons) Photography and PGDip Fine Art.

Over a 20-year period Jon has concealed severe bouts of depression, frightening hallucinations, night terrors, sleep paralysis, crippling anxiety and a tremor in his hands. In 2015, he was diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety and borderline personality disorder.

His work is his therapy, and he expresses his experiences and struggles through painting and photography. His paintings, perhaps inspired by his time in the Peak District, are all from his imagination. They are not just landscapes, but feelings, that leave us to ponder our own emotions.

If you wish to see more of his work feel free to visit :-

He is also on WordPress and Instagram #jonkiddvisualartist

Jon’s work has been seen in several exhibitions and publications.”

Thank you so much to Jon for being our first exhibitor.

We were lucky enough to receive a visit from Dexter & Darwin today. Both tired out after their walk on the prom in the rain.
At L-B&H we love to meet your pets, and when it’s safe to visit we positively encourage you to bring them.
