The Society, along with our friends from the Teifi Coracle Netsmen Association and The Ironbridge Coracle Trust had a fantastic time at BBC Countryfile Live last weekend. The weather was brilliant and we had lots of interest from members of the public. The Waterside zone, which we were located in, processed over 5000 visitors for the activities on the water and we got over 300 of those in a coracle on the water. The Teifi Coracle Netsmen Association performed a number of netting demonstrations on the water, made possible thanks to a special licence granted by the Environment Agency.
- promoting the knowledge of coracles, curraghs and allied craft, their making and use, and also their study and collection;

- publishing a newsletter as a means of communication between all those interested in coracles;
- using its best endeavours to obtain supplies of materials for the construction of coracles; and
- promoting demonstrations, courses, exhibitions, discussions and lectures relating to coracles.
