Have you renewed your bus pass?

Comments Off on Have you renewed your bus pass?

Transport for Wales is currently managing the reissue of free bus passes across Wales

There are currently around 750,000 bus passes in Wales and the current green coloured cards will all expire on 31 December 2019 and not be accepted on buses. Since September Transport for Wales has received 450,000 applications however  the deadline is now fast approaching and we need to promote the changes as much as possible to ensure as many people as possible have time to re-apply and receive their new-style cards before the end of the year.

Cardholders can either reapply online at www.tfw.wales/travelcards or by paper, which can be downloaded from the website or pick up a copy from your local council. You can also request a copy in the post by calling the helpline 0300 303 4240.

The new cards offer the same travel benefits for 60s and over and eligible disabled persons.

VE DAY 75 CELEBRATIONS

Comments Off on VE DAY 75 CELEBRATIONS

Town and Community/Parish Councils throughout England and Wales are taking the lead in the organisation of local celebrations marking the 75th Anniversary of the end of the war in Europe on the 8th – 10th May 2020. After six years of fighting, the end of hostilities were officially announced on the 8th May 1945 by Prime Minister Winston Churchill. That date has since become enshrined in history as VE Day.

VE Day 75, on the weekend of 8th – 10th May 2020, will be an international celebration of peace – a time to remember, reflect and pay tribute to the millions who played such a vital part in achieving it. This includes the Armed Forces personnel from many countries who gave their lives or were physically and mentally injured; the hard-working women and men who kept the factories, mines, shipyards and farms operating throughout the years of turmoil; the ARP wardens, police officers, doctors, nurses, firemen, local defence volunteers and many others safeguarded the home front.

SSAFA the Armed Forces Charity – which has been supporting service personnel, veterans and their families since 1885 – are the charity partner for this series of VE Day 75 commemorative events.

Sir Andrew Gregory, chief executive of SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, said “It is our duty to keep the events of the past alive in collective memory, including future generations – this is how we ensure that such a conflict never happens again. It is our hope that the nation takes a moment to reflect on the significance of this date, as a milestone that changed the course of history for the whole world.”

We would like to encourage you to engage with your local SSAFA branch to ensure community collaboration. To find out the location and contact details of your local SSAFA branch visit: www.ssafa.org.uk/get-help/find-local-branch/

The planned activities over the weekend are as follows, please go to the VE Day 75 website – www.veday75.org to see the complete overview for this anniversary:

  • The Playing of Battle’s O’er & VE 75 Years
  • The ‘Nation’s Toast to the Heroes of WW2’
  • The ‘Cry for Peace, around the World’
  • Churches & cathedrals ‘Ringing out for Peace’
  • Street parties and parties in pubs, clubs, Hotels, on town and village greens and in halls etc
  • Services of commemoration and celebration in churches, including the reading of the ‘Tribute to the Millions’ and the playing of the Last Post

FRIDAY 8TH MAY 2020 has been designated a bank holiday by HM Government so all can partake).

Did you know BT intends removing the payphone in Llanbedr?

Comments Off on Did you know BT intends removing the payphone in Llanbedr?

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…

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

so.… why not join us tomorrow (28th June 2019) for the Grand Opening of Llanbedr Nature Garden.

Kirsty Williams AM will open the garden accompanied by Anne Hinchey, Chief Executive Officer of Wales & West Housing Association and children from Llanbedr Primary School, who have competed in a competition to design signs for the garden.   The winners, and winning entries will be revealed on the day!

Bark Park with bug hotel

Join us at 2:00pm in the nature garden, at the end of St Peter’s Close, to celebrate, with cake, the creation not just of the nature garden, but also the community allotments and affordable housing.

We hope you can make it!
