Wireworks Bridge 'Meet the Contractor and Public Share Event'


The tender submission process is complete and bids assessed and by now the successful contractor should have been formally awarded the contract.
A community drop-in event is arranged for Tuesday 21st June at Tintern village hall with two slots for people to drop in: 11am to 3pm or 5pm to 8pm.
It is unlikely that the Ironworks car park will be needed for the compound set up on 25th June so it is hopefully available for the Tintern Fete visitors.
Realistically the bridge is likely to be closed to pedestrians in early July for mobilisation works and then commencement.

The refurbishment works include
  • stabilisation of the west abutment
  • re-establishment of the load capacity of the bridge
  • improvement to the surface
  • maintenance works to masonry walls and piers
  • painting

Detailed plans of the refurbishment will be on display.

The next meeting is on Tuesday 21st June at 7.30 online. 
Speaker: John Clarke
Topic: Religion without God: Spirituality in a Secular Age

This is the first of two talks to mark the tenth anniversary of the death of Ray Billington. With his partner Hatti Pegram he founded the Tintern Philosophy Circle along with a number of other philosophy-for-all groups, as well as teaching philosophy at the University of the West of England in Bristol. The first talk will use some of his writings to address questions about the relevance of religious belief in our increasingly secular age. The second talk by Bob Clarke is on July 19th on ‘Varieties of Authenticity’.

An invite to visit Llandogo Women’s Institute
Wednesday 8th June at 7:30pm in Llandogo Village Hall

Gwent Federation of WIs are running a campaign to raise awareness of Coronary Heart Disease in Women. Llandogo WI are very supportive of this and have raised funds to have a second defibrillator for Llandogo sited at the Village Hall. Our June meeting is an open meeting and we would like to invite all women in the local area to attend. We have a speaker who will tell us more about CHD in women and open it up for questions. We tend to think a heart attack is a men’s health issue, but the statistics say otherwise.

Tintern Village Hall AGM

Start Date:

2022-05-14T08:00:00BST


Location:

Tintern Village Hall


Event Description:

The Tintern Marian Way - An ancient Pilgrimage in a modern context.

The Friends of Our Lady of Tintern (FOLT) are currently engaged in reviving parts of the mediaeval Pilgrimage route to Tintern Abbey and the statue of the Virgin Mary and Child as a circular path for local walkers and visitors to the area. The Marian Way offers the modern-day Pilgrim the chance to tread in the footsteps of the Cistercian monks and mediaeval devotees along the arduous Stony Way-the path of sorrows- to Penterry Church, Penterry for rest and contemplation before returning to Tintern Abbey through luscious, forested landscape- the path of joys.
Pilgrimage was an integral part of the spiritual life in the Middle Ages, as much as walking is to the more physical life of today and served as an analogy for one’s life journey and it is in this spirit we hope walkers will undertake the ‘way’. Living through an age which we might describe as thirsting for secular, meaningful experiences the ‘symbolic’ landscape the walk promotes provides the ordinary man, woman and child an exercise in spiritual and physical well-being as well as an opportunity to engage with the landscape and its history.
The destination of the Pilgrimage, the Marian shrine in Tintern Abbey, preserved in tact until the dissolution of the monasteries, was the focus of devotion in the 14th 15th and 16th centuries. It was said to be the source of miracles for those seeking emotional and physical healing. Its modern-day replica by sculptor Philip Chatfield is a timely reminder of Mary’s symbolic position as a feminine intercessor between the two worlds of an ideal ‘spiritual’ world of forms and the world of nature. Where better can this experience be realised than journeying through an area of outstanding natural beauty and religious cultural heritage.

The evening of Music and Poetry celebrating the Marian Way will take place in St. Michael’s Church Tintern on Saturday May 14th at 6pm. It will feature the work of local poets who took part in a walking poetry workshop along the Way, convened by award winning poet Fiona Benson as part of a Words and Lanscape Project.

Event Description:

Speaker: Prof. Simon Cottle
Topic: On Nature, Crisis and Hope


Simon writes: We are all intimately involved in the world of nature; our lives depend on it. And yet, today, the world it seems is in peril because our relationship to nature is breaking down. This talk first briefly sets out some of the rapidly accumulating evidence that points to a ‘world-in-crisis’ and which underpins projections of probable ‘civilizational collapse,’ before exploring the possibilities of ‘hope’ and where and how this may still be found.

Philosophy Circle Meeting
Speaker: Bob Clarke
Topic: Varieties of Authenticity


This is the second Ray Billington memorial lecture. He held the French Existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre in high esteem. Why was this? Sartre was a philosopher who promoted the priority of ‘authenticity’ in one’s life (or, rather, he inveighed against ‘Inauthenticity’), and so I suggest that Ray, very much an authentic philosopher himself, admired Sartre as a man whose own life could be seen as having been lived in an authentic way. But authenticity’- arguably, living one’s own life in accordance with one’s own principles - is a many-sided and highly contentious philosophical subject. Arguably, it can lead to morally compromised, even reprehensible, actions! The talk will therefore look at varieties of authenticity, largely as exemplified by three Twentieth-Century philosophers: Jean-Paul Sartre, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Ray Billington himself.

Stories and story-telling are fundamental in all cultures and play a role in all aspects of life. In this talk Vanessa Dodd will explore the ways in which stories have blossomed into a variety of forms and media, especially in our postmodern age when stories and narratives have become central to philosophical and social concerns.

John writes: As we approach COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, I want to raise some philosophical questions about the need, often expressed, for a new world view if we are to deal adequately with the global warming crisis. I will be making use of the ideas of philosophers Spinoza (1632-77), and Arne Naess (1912-2009) founder of the Deep Ecology movement.

Topic: Iris Murdoch: A Very British Philosopher?
Speaker: Dr Vanessa Dodd


Novelist, essayist and moral philosopher, Iris Murdoch is often remembered for her decline into Alzheimer’s depicted in the 2001 film Iris. In this talk I hope to recover some of her standing as a moral philosopher and philosopher of art by exploring the key philosophies which dominate her thinking.

Bob Clarke will talk on 'Historical reflections on the 'Two Cultures' controversy (1959-1962)?'
In May 1959, the scientist and novelist C. P. Snow delivered at lecture in Cambridge, entitled ‘The Two Cultures’ – ostensibly they were the Sciences and the Humanities. An ensuing controversy became very well-known across the English-speaking world. Through this talk we will attempt to understand it within a broader historical context, delving back as far as 1798.

John Clarke will talk on 'China and the West: Clash of civilisations?'
John writes: A long time ago I was glad to be offered a teaching job in philosophy at the University of Singapore since, like many of my generation, I was drawn to the 'mysteries of the orient'. Alas no mysteries. The philosophy taught there was exactly the same as the philosophy taught in any British University. Even my ethnic Chinese colleagues showed no interest in Chinese philosophical traditions. So it was only on my return to the UK that I embarked on a study of those traditions, and this led me investigate the relationships and influences between the intellectual cultures of China and the West. I wrote several books on this subject, including Oriental Enlightenment: the Encounter between Asian and Western Thought. This is the context of my presentation which relates specifically to recent talk of a 'clash' between China and the West.

In my talk I will look at the Romantic movement, its origins and its art, both the visual arts and poetry, and in particular I will look at the notion of the Sublime, essentially a rapturous response to Nature, or a representation of nature which could lead to a transcending of the mundane and the earthly.

Tim studied philosophy at Oxford University and lectures on economics and business studies. He writes: From the modern continental thought of the June session, we go right back to the beginning of western philosophy before the invention of the term ‘philosophy’. His talk covers the so-called preSocratic philosophers in the ancient Greek world starting from about 600 BCE. This was a key period in the development of western civilisation, just after the composition of the Iliad and Odyssey (approx. 750 BCE) and the development of coinage (approx. 620 BCE).

Our relationship with death, how we reflect or refuse to reflect upon it, seems key to understanding many puzzles about our species.

One of the most contested issues in 20th century philosophy was between those like A.J. Ayer (with his best-selling book Language, Truth and Logic) who sought clarity and down-to-earth empirical certainty at all costs, and those like Karl Popper (with his speculations about an 'open universe') who, while giving science an important role, believed that philosophy should explore issues that embrace wider traditional metaphysical questions

I am calling the talk 'The Freedom to Choose' which has been taken from Viktor Frankl's book 'Man's Search for Meaning'. A Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry in Vienna, Frankl survived 3+ years in various Nazi death camps during WW2. I will be sharing some reflections on how Frankl's wisdom not only inspired me in my lifetime but in my view offers hope for those currently experiencing human suffering with their mental well-being which the covid pandemic is being held responsible for.

An old-fashioned British comedy caper that is plainly lovely and a joy. Based on a true story, it’s an account of the 1961 theft of a Goya painting from the National Gallery, stars Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren, and is directed by Roger Michell (of Notting Hill fame). Many films have all their ducks in a row yet are somehow disappointing, but this is perfect, capturing the spirit and joie de vivre of the old Ealing comedies.

Speaker: Bob Clarke
Topic: The Enigma of Time


From a scientific point of view, time presents us with an enigma. On the one hand, time is the physical quantity that we can measure far more accurately than any others - and time appears as a key parameter in all of the mathematical expressions of the ‘Laws of Physics’ that we apply practically in the world every day. On the other hand, some theoretical physicists argue that time is not a fundamental feature of our world at all and may even be an ‘illusion’! In an attempt to resolve this enigma, this talk will survey scientific aspects of time ranging from practical time keeping to theories of Quantum Gravity. Can science actually tell us what time is ‘fundamentally’? And - if not, why not?
