Sefydliad y Merched

Mae aelodau Sefydliad Y merched yn parhau i fwynhau cyfarfodydd a gweithgareddau diddorol. Ym mis Mehefin, croesawyd Carys Davies, cyfreithwraig o James, Jones,ei Fab a Francis, Llandysul.

Siaradodd Carys am ei gyrfa yn y Gyfraith a dywedodd wrthym sut y bu iddi gyrraedd i fod nawr yn berchennog cwmni cyfreithwyr prysur. Amlinellodd y meysydd cyfreithiol y mae’r cwmni yn ymdrin a nhw. Roedd ei araith yn ysbrydoledig.

Treuliasom brynhawn diddorol ym mis Gorffennaf yn Amgueddfa Caerfyrddin, lle dysgwyd llawer am Hanes lleol.

Fe wnaethon fwynhau gweld yr ystafell ysgol, y gegin ffermdy a dysgu am ffermio a diwydiant yn Sir Gaerfyrddin yn y dyddiau a fu. Gwelwyd dreselau Cymreig hyfryd, a oedd yn llawn llestri hyfryd.

Dilynwyd ymweliad yr amgueddfa gyda phryd o fwyd a chyfarfod yn Nhafarn Tanerdy yng Nghaerfyrddin.

Cymerodd Sefydliad y Merched ran yng ngharnifal Pencader eto eleni, gyda’i stondin bric a brac arferol.

Ni fyddwn, fel arfer, yn cyfarfod ym mis Awst, ond eleni, aethom i Westy’r Porth am dê prynhawn blasus. Roedd yn achlysur pleserus iawn. Ein gwestai anrhydeddus oedd cyn aelod o’r Sefydliad, Mrs Sally Richards. ’Rydym yn ei cholli yn ein cyfarfodydd, felly roedd hi’n hyfryd ei gweld eto. Cynhelir cyfarfodydd yn y Pafiliwn am 2pm ar ddydd Mawrth 1af y mis.

Digwyddiadau i ddod:

Dydd Mawrth Medi 5ed: bydd Janice Richards yn siarad am ei gwaith yn Rhif 10.

Dydd Mawrth Hydref 3ydd: bydd Steve Adams yn dweud wrthym am ei lyfr, “Murder at the Star”.

Croeso i chwi ymuno a ni yn cyfarfodydd.

Canolfan Deuluol Newyddion

Mae Canolfan Deuluol Pencader ar agor drwy gydol yr haf, gyda gwibdaith wedi bod i Fferm Ffoli eisoes, a gwibdaith wedi ei drefnu i canolfan chwarae plant yn Llanelli. Rhowch wybod os hoffech i fynd. Bydd gwerthu bwyd yn dechrau eto ar ddydd Iau Medi 7fed. Os hoffech archebu bag o ffrwythau neu llysiau sydd yn £3 y bag rhowch wybod erbyn canol dydd Merched y 6ed.

Llythyron i’r Golygydd

Hydref 2016

Sir

I would like to say what a wonderful day we all had on Carnival Saturday. The sun shone all day, it was warm and relatively wind free; the crowds were generous with their money and everyone was very happy with the new Carnival Committee.

There were five floats plus plenty of attractions in the stalls arranged around the field. It was a really good effort and next year is bound to be even better.

I know I am a bit late but I do want to say “Congratulations” all round!!

Sincerely Stuart Wilson, (Cwmgwen, Dolgran Road, Pencader)

Dear Editor,

With reference to the sentiments voiced in the ‘Parish Pump’ section of Clecs, I have to agree with the writer that “Speed Kills” this has been proven beyond doubt on several occasions in recent months on the A485 between ‘Windy Corner’ and Carmarthen. I too have taken part in various forms of motor sport over the years, but fortunately have managed to curb my enthusiasm when on the public highway.

If some of these ‘speedsters’ were to leave for work 10 minutes earlier, they would be able to drive at a more sensible pace, arrive feeling less stressed, and in time to enjoy a cuppa before starting their work. I think this would be preferable to spending time in A&E or even worse!!

Maybe the ‘speedwatch’ initiative being introduced by the local police and community volunteers will have some effect.

Drive safely,

Concerned motorist

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Editor,

I am writing in reply to a couple of issues that have been mentioned in the last issue. The first is speeding…if a car is going through the village at 50 mph it has either slowed down or is speeding up. Either way that same car on the roads outside of the village will have been going really fast.

I live near to Windy Corner and on quiet evenings and early mornings I can actually hear some of the cars and motorbikes accelerating as they exit the village and when they pass my gate they have to be travelling in excess of 80mph. Obviously the 50mph speed limit has had no affect on these individuals.

Even at busier times of day living on the outskirts we have to contend with other issues, one of the main being slow moving, heavy vehicles followed by frustrated drivers just itching to overtake, which they do without safety in mind. Are they doing 50mph when they overtake.. not a chance.

The Windy Corner end of the B4459 has now become somewhat of an accident zone with the Air Ambulance having to attend three accidents in the last 12 months, a couple of which had fatalities.

Driver impatience took the mirror off my neighbours parked car. You measure that distance and see how close the car actually skimmed past him, frightening.

People keep requesting a footpath between the village and Tremle House because of the increased traffic flow but these same pedestrians do not help themselves. I often drive from my home into the village and I see walkers on the wrong side of the road. The majority are wearing dull colours so they blend in with the foliage.

Perhaps it is a new ploy…I cannot be seen therefore I cannot be run over! It is a very dangerous practice. I have to date only ever seen one woman wearing a fluorescent jacket walking down that stretch of road and as it was intended, she stuck out like a sore thumb. With the nights drawing in and afternoons being dull, fluorescent jackets or safety vests are really something every pedestrian should have and wear. You can buy them cheaply now from many places.

The council could replace 5o benches in the village and that would not even come close to the cost of widening the bridge, something that they should have done when they rebuilt it and something that will need to be done to create a footpath. All councils are crafty in the way they operate. As I said, they had the opportunity to widen the bridge but did not.. why not? The bench replacement…it was nowhere near the cost of putting down a pavement but it could have lowered the spendable budget just enough to make the footpath unaffordable! You know how they work, if something is going to cost them £50 they will not start the work with only £49 to spend so by simply not spending £1 they save £49. I do not know what is in the coffers but I do know that swapping the benches would have certainly have dropped that amount. By enough to stop a footpath being built…your guess is as good as mine.

They installed a zebra crossing situated in the wrong location. It is hardly ever used where it is but if had it have been situated further into the village, perhaps by the small telephone exchange, it would have been in an ideal location for pedestrians However locating it where it was needed would have robbed it of the councils intended purpose. Installing a pedestrian crossing made them look as though they were providing for pedestrian safety but actually its purpose would have been to slow down incoming traffic. Putting it where it was needed and would be used, deeper into the village would have left the Maescader entrance exposed and more dangerous to exit. It is a practice not only done by our council but by many others…for them it is a two for one situation…make themselves look good in the public eye but really they are just meeting their own agenda.

These are my own opinions and assumptions, I have no factual evidence except using my own eyes and brain but after reading this letter I think that more people will see the light and realise how they are being ‘conned’.

Hydref 2015

To the Chair Person of local Parish Council        

Dear Editor,

I am writing a letter to inquire what prompted the Council to dispose of perfectly good quality benches and replace them with new benches. We had the original benches for years and they only needed a fresh coat of good quality paint that would have made them last for many more years. I inquired what they were going to do with the benches and was told that were going to be given to the surrounding football fields and parks. The majority of local people are deeply disappointed as this money should have been spent for a pavement as many local carers are risking their lives with traffic, please note that these carers are dedicated to caring for our local senior citizens that live in Tremle House.

Yours truly

Dear Editor,

Innocent Knitted Hat Campaign

So far over 300 hats have been knitted for the Age Cymru campaign. Many thanks to knitters, Gillian, Mrs. Griffiths, Joan, Catherine, Carol, Maisie and those people who have left packets of hats on my doorstep!!

I have yarn if anyone wants to have a go with the hat pattern below. There is no closing date, just keep knitting!!!!

Using 4mm ( No. 8 ) needles and any DK yarn -

Cast on 28 sts; knit 2 rows; starting with a knit row, work in stocking stitch for 12 more rows. Row 15: knit 2 tog. to end of row (14 sts); Row 16: purl 2 tog. to end of row (7 sts). Cut yarn leaving say 25cms. Thread the yarn through the 7 sts and remove from knitting needle. Tighten the yarn and sew the little hat together along the side seams. Once sewn, turn inside out.

Approximate measurements are 5 – 7cms along the bottom and at least 3cms high.

Too Trusting                           

Dear Editor,

At 4pm on the 30th of January I was driving along the hill top road that the old Dragon Concrete works used to be on. The majority of it being single lane you do encounter other traffic and have to give way, sometimes reversing to a lay-by. This happened to me but unfortunately, as I pulled out of the lay-by, I found that I had a flat tyre. I reversed back to a safer spot and then tried to use a can of ‘Instant fix’ repair. No joy. Thinking that it might have done the job but not blown the tyre up I flagged down several people and asked if they carried a foot pump. I had a spare but was not well enough to fit it myself so in the end I called out the recovery people. While waiting for them to arrive, one person who I had spoken to earlier actually returned and offered to change the wheel for me but I explained the AA were on their way and he left. There are two points to this story: the first is to thank those who did stop and especially the fellow that returned. The second point is a bit more of a warning. In Wales, especially in this area, people are friendly, helpful and trusting, and it is the trusting bit that worries me. I am in effect a stranger standing in the middle of a very quiet lane, just before dusk, waving at the odd car when a young lady pulls up in her works van. We spoke through her wound down window and then without hesitation she jumps out, opens the van, a rental, to see if there was a pump inside. I could have been the Yorkshire Ripper for all that she knew but her rural upbringing probably never even made her give such a thing a thought. It is this naivety that worries me. In any city or big town in the country, with people and cars everywhere, the most that I would expect would be to talk to a driver through a small gap in the window, and even if they could help, they would probably refuse to. This is because those city dwellers are knowledgeable of the risks they are exposed to daily. All I am asking is that people in our area be aware, never put yourself in a situation where you could be at risk, no need to worry all the time but just think twice and ask yourself this question before you act…”Am I putting myself at risk?” This applies to everything from stopping for a stranger to simply opening your front door.

Regards,

Bryan Perks

Bydd y Tyrbin Gwynt yn effeithio derbyniad Teledu

Bydd y Tyrbin Gwynt yn effeithio derbyniad Teledu Bydd tyrbin gwynt 500 kW newydd a fydd yn 67m o uchder, yn cael ei godi cyn bo hir ar ‘Wern’ tua un filltir o Bencader, ac yn edrych dros Gwm Tyweli.

Mae adroddiad wedi cael ei gyhoeddi yn planning application W/32909 sy’n dangos y bydd lan i 30 annedd yng Nghwm Tyweli ac yn arbennig yn Llanfihangel-ar-arth, yn debyg i gael eu derbyniad Teledu Freeview ei amharu. Dyma achos bydd y tyrbin gwynt yn y llinell syth â’r trosglwyddydd Preseli.

Yn y lleoliadau hyn gallai adlewyrchiadau signal nad oedd eu heisiau, ac ymadweithiau o lafnau cylchdroi’r tyrbin gwynt amharu derbyniad Freeview. Ni ddylai teledu lloeren gael ei effeithio. Mae ymyrraeth â theledu HD yn fwy tebygol i ddigwydd.

Mae’r adroddiad yn awgrymu y gallai gwylwyr Freeview wedi eu heffeithio ddefnyddio derbyniad lloeren ddigidol i adfer eu gwasanaethau, ond nid ydy pob sianel ddaearol ar gael gan loeren ar hyn o bryd. Mae fersiynau blaenorol yr adroddiad teledu [Baseline TV Signal Survey and TV Reception Impact Assessment] yn dal ar gael i’w lawrlwytho ar wefan gynllunio Cyngor y Sir ( County Council’s Planning web site ). Mae’r newidiadau sy wedi digwydd, yn golygu y bydd gweithredwr y tyrbin, nawr dywedwyd i fod yn gwmni yn Helston, Cernyw, yn ymateb i gwynion. Bydd ymchwiliad i gwynion ac os ydynt yn ddilys, bydd y datblygwr yn ariannu’r gwaith angenrheidiol i adfer derbyniad preswylwyr. Tri mis oedd yr amser aros ond yn y ddogfen ddiweddaraf wedi’i dyddio 14/4/2016 mae hyn wedi cael ei newid nawr i 4 wythnos. Nid ydy’r newid wedi cael ei gymeradwyo eto a bydd yn cael ei ystyried gan y Pwyllgor Cynllunio ddydd Iau Ebrill 28ain.

Cliciwch, os gwelwch yn dda, ar y dolennau i lawrlwytho’r adroddiad lle gallwch weld map yr ardaloedd dan sylw a mwy o fanylion ar sut i gwyno.
