Did you know BT intends removing the payphone in Llanbedr?

Leave a comment

The Community Council believes it’s important to retain a payphone service in Llanbedr and whilst intending to oppose BT’s removal of this phone it would first like to know what the community wants.

  • Do you think the phone should remain?
  • Do you think the phone should be removed?
  • Do you think the kiosk should be adopted and used as a community facility?

Please let us know what you want

Oh, what a day…

Comments Off on Oh, what a day…

The sun shone brightly…. and whilst there was no sand… or sea…  elderflower pressé flowed aplenty….. and, after 10 years (or so) we are able to officially declare the affordable housing, community allotments and nature garden OPEN

How better to celebrate than invite Llanbedr School to design signs for the nature garden, and WOW….. what a success.  They did us, and them, proud…. albeit presenting our Councillors with a bit of a quandary…. BUT someone has to win, so…   after careful deliberation….the winners of each of the three categories were revealed to be Daisy Deeble, Ryan Griffiths and Eleri Smith.

Kirsty Williams AM and Ann Hinchey of Wales & West Housing Association, both went beyond the call of duty…  distributing goody bags, as well as cutting, and savouring cake…. kindly donated (and made) by our skilful residents …. again WOW… what community spirit….

Thank you Llanbedr, thank you Kirsty, thank you Ann, not forgetting Wales & West Housing Association for contributing towards the success of this event… and David James, Rural Housing Enabler, whose involvement started way back in 2008.  It was a day enjoyed by all…  but now, it’s up to YOU, the community….

We hope you will use the garden – enjoy the solitude, appreciate the wildlife, bugs and all, and  remember, if you have any ideas on how you wish to see the garden progress, let us know… email the Clerk… after all this is your space….

And of course, without blowing our own trumpets…. thanks to the Councillors, without whom this would not have happened…

Things like this make us realise what a truly special place the Vale of Grwyney is.

 

Hip Hip Hip Hooray… the sun has got its hat on…

Over the last few days, in between downpours, residents and visitors to St Peter’s Close, should have noticed a hive of activity around the nature garden.

We now have a wooden seat:Table - close up

a log for children to play on:Log - close up

and furniture for the Bug Hotel, in the form of cones and twigs:Bug Hotel and fillings

Your Councillors have been very busy.

 

Please keep an eye on this web site for news of a very special event…

 

Shhh…… do you wanna hear a secret……?

If you happen to live in Llanbedr, near St Peter’s Close, you could be wondering “what’s occurring”?   And yes, you may have spied not one, but two tractors, a log and some pallets masquerading as a hotel (…quite salubrious, for a bug).   If you look extremely carefully you may even see some discreetly concealed nesting boxes….

To explain, your hardworking councillors are proving their dedication to duty by helping create a nature garden for the community to use and enjoy.  We have crab apple trees, a log to scramble over and a bench on which to sit and ponder.   A place to savour quietness and appreciate nature’s beauty, while fathoming what species of bird is flying overhead.

It is a work in progress, but we have many ideas, which we hope, to bring to life over the coming months, and years.  Most importantly this is an area for the community to use, enjoy and nurture.  If you would like to be involved in the development of what is intended to become a wildlife haven, please contact the Council, either by speaking to your elected representative or the clerk.

So… what is the secret?  Well, that would be telling  – to find out more keep checking this web site (and the village noticeboard) for further posts… and posters.
