CAT customer and supporter survey – let us know your views

Can you spare a few minutes to help CAT in the development of our strategic planning?

We are reviewing how best we can maximise our impact towards our mission of delivering practical solutions for sustainability. As a result we will set our objectives for the next three to five years.

site_wise_catIf you are a CAT supporter or a customer using one of our services we would like to ask you to complete this short online survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CentreAltTech

The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete and is being managed on CAT’s behalf by ACEVO, an umbrella organisation for charities which specialises in supporting strategic development.

All responses will be treated as confidential and anonymous.

Responses to this survey will be crucial in helping CAT to establish its future priorities and objectives over the next few years. We would be really grateful for your help.

 

Views around CAT on 1st December

We have had a spell of cold and frosty days here at CAT, with head gardener Roger recording -10C on the night of 29th November. These cold, still days lend a Nordic atmosphere to this unique environment – and we felt we just had to share it with you!

Of course, from many parts of the CAT site, we can see Tarren y Gesail, with Cadair Idris and Snowdon not too far away.
The views from Cadair Idris are truly staggering and the walk itself exhilarating.

braich goch mine

If underground is more your thing, go mine exploring! Braich Goch slate mine is only a few miles from CAT and closed over 40 years ago sealing 130 years of history in this unique underground museum.
With tours to suit the whole family, there is even a sleepover in the mine this weekend!

Cardigan Bay is a Special Area of Conservation with great surfing conditions, and the chance to spot a dolphin or two.
Borth, Aberystwyth and Harlech are all excellent for beginners, or travel further south to Pembrokeshire for classic surfing and body-boarding. Click here for surf board hire.
