The Span Arts Cheerful Project

The Cheerful Project is here to help organise exciting creative opportunities in rural communities with the aim of reducing isolation and increasing cheerfulness. We want to create more opportunities locally for people (you!) to make friends, socialise and have fun while also awakening your inner creativity.

What is the Cheerful Project?

  • We exist to develop a programme of arts and social activities, workshops and events in rural Pembrokeshire.
  • We are community led; which means we want to hear your voice, your ideas and get you involved in the project.
  • The Cheerful Project is for people of all ages. We want to encourage more occasions where you can socialise with different age groups in your community.

Where are we based?

The project will primarily take place in Maenclochog, Clarbeston Road, Narberth and the surrounding rural areas. You will find us in your village halls, your parks, the local church and we might even make it to the pub! We are based in Narberth at the Span Arts building on a day-to-day basis, so pop in if you are around.

What’s On?

Whatever your talent, age or ability we have something for you in our upcoming program of events to suit you. Click here to find out what’s coming up.

How can you get involved?

If you think you have what it takes to join a Cheerful Team near you, Anna, Sophie and Rowan would like to hear from you. Are you keen to see more going on in your local area? Do you want to put something back into your community or learn the ins-and-outs of putting on a community event? The team are looking for people to help run events, program workshops, drive minibuses, promote the project and act as community ambassadors.

If you want to join in or find out more, please give the Cheerful team a call on 01834 869323 or drop us an email:
