P.I.D.A. Easter Competition

Pencader WI

We have enjoyed the last two meetings very much.

Our February speaker was unable to come, but all was not lost as Mary gave a very interesting talk about her great uncle, John Pryce Jones (Uncle Jack). Uncle Jack was brought up by two aunts in Pencader and went to school locally. He was very clever and later studied Organic Chemistry at Aberystwyth University. During WW1, Uncle Jack became a Sub Lieutenant in the Navy, based at Orkney. In 1919, he returned to university and studied Chemistry, later becoming a lecturer and researcher. John Pryce Jones retired in West Wales.

As usual, in March we celebrated St. David’s Day with a delicious lunch and meeting at The Porth Hotel.

Coming up in April we have Davina Watson giving a talk on Victorian Costume.

In May, we will be visiting Abergavenny Market with Taf Valley Coaches. So, lots to look forward to in the next couple of months!

We meet at 2:00pm in the Pavilion on the first Tuesday of the month. Feel free to come along. We’d be pleased to see you.

Regeneration Group meeting

Could you support us?

The Pencader and District Regeneration Group is keen to have more people supporting its activities.

You can read the Chairman’s Report for 2019 HERE.

The next meeting will be on Monday 16th March at 7:30 pm.

Please come along.

“ Clecs Distributors are urgently needed for Pencader village – if you enjoy walking and meeting people and would like to help please contact Jane on 01559 384187 or Stuart 01559 384709”

PLEASE NOTE

Our meetings take place on the THIRD Monday in the month in the Pavilion, Pencader, at 7:30pm.

If you feel you would like to join the Group, please come along to the next meeting – held at 7.30 at the Pavilion on third Monday of the month.

February 2020

A few complaints had been received about an article in the last edition of Clecs; it was agreed that it must be made clear in Clecs Bro Cader that the views expressed are those of the writer and not the Group or the editorial team. The Community Facebook page now had 345 members,an increase of over 30 from last month. Stuart & Chris will go and see about hiring the school as the venue for next Garden & Craft Show in September as running out of room in Pavilion now. Need to meet up and arrange schedule.

January 2020

The evening began with the AGM, Stuart read out his Chairman’s report (a copy can be seen on the Pencader.org website) and thanked all for their support in the year. No nominations received for changing Officers, so it was proposed and seconded to keep the officers as they are. The usual monthly meeting then followed. Morgan had met with Keith and Jane and was happy to help with Clecs Bro Cader. Suggestions needed for the 100th issue in April. There had been a problem accessing the Welsh version of the website, Emma had done a temporary fix. It had also been pointed out that Parish Records are no longer held at the National Library as they have been returned to the Parish. These are available for inspection at Llanfihangel Vicarage at a charge of £22 per hour.

December 2019

A warm welcome was extended to Morgan Jones from Gwyddgrug after seeing it promoted in Clecs; the group needs lively new members with fresh ideas.

The December Clecs had been printed and distributed in record time; a lot of good feedback had been received about the extra colour and compact layout.

There would be no organised Christmas Lights judging this year.

The state of the road past Banc Farm was discussed and reported to Cllr Linda.

John Hubert then gave a most interesting presentation of stills and videos taken with his drone camera over various locations in the community. Familiar landmarks looked so different from above and detail was incredibly clear.

November 2019

The meeting was chaired by Stuart Wilson.

Several new advertisers taken out adverts in Clecs Bro Cader which would help with funding the costs for the extra colour pages.

The website had been updated and the programme for the 2020 Llanfihangel-ar-Arth Eisteddfod would be made available as a download.

The Remembrance Service at Tabernacle had been poorly supported by the community; need to have better publicity for next year to promote it.

If you feel you would like to join the Group, please come along to the next meeting – held at 7:30 at the Pavilion on third Monday of the month.

Next Event Local History Club

In November John Jones came to talk about the history of Ffair Rhos. The name comes from the fair that was held on the moorland by the monks of Ystrad Fflur Abbey. Later it became a hiring fair. As well as agriculture, especially raising sheep, the area was well known for its miners who were digging for lead. They were responsible for the development of the village. During its time the community has been renowned for its poets. John Jones went on to describe a number of the characters who used to live in the area.

Dr John Davies presented the story of O T Jones to us in December. He was born in 1878 in Plasnewydd farm and moved to Beulah, in the Newcastle Emlyn area, and then Blaenffynnon. He attended the local school until he was 15 years old when he went to Pencader Grammar School. After graduating from Aberystwyth University in 1899 he moved to Trinity College, Cambridge, where Geology was one of his subjects. He joined the British Geological Survey in 1903 and then became the first Professor of Geology in Aberystwyth in 1910. He made a number of original contributions to his topic, especially in Wales, and in 1926 was elected Fellow of the Royal Society. He was a famous geologist who had a long and distinguished career. He died in 1967.

February 6th: Einion Gruffydd will talk (in Welsh) about Radio and Television.

March 5th: Mary Thomason will tell us the story of John Pryce Jones, a remarkable son of Pencader (in English).

April 23rd: The Rev Eileen Davies, Gwndwn, will present ‘Here I am’ (in Welsh).

The meetings are held in Neuadd yr Ysgol, Llanfihangel, and they start at 7:30pm. Admission is £3 which includes refreshments and a raffle.

A warm welcome to everyone. 

 

Merched y Wawr Pencader a’r Cylch

It is with sadness that we note the huge loss to our branch on 21st November 2019 of Marina Davies, Heddfryn, New Inn.

Marina was a member of the branch from its inception and she was enthusiastic and loyal for over half a century. As joint secretary for two years until the summer of 2019 she took great pride and enjoyment in organising activities to celebrate the half centenary celebrations. Everyone enjoyed the concert by Dafydd Iwan and local talent and also the afternoon tea where Bro Eirwyn choir and Sandie Stefanetti took part.

During her time with Merched Y Wawr Marina worked hard on a local, county and national level where she was well respected by all. It was always such a pleasure and privilege to be in her company and have such fun at every activity.

In our local branch we feel that we have not only lost an enthusiastic and valued member but also a close and very dear friend.

December 2019

As usual we did not have a meeting in December but went to sing carols at some local residential homes.

On the 9th December we were warmly welcomed by staff who had prepared delicious snacks for us at Maesllewellyn Care Home, Newcastle Emlyn where our dear past member, Mrs Rachel Evans of Pencader had been residing for a short time. With sadness we learned that she had passed away within a matter of weeks of her 100th birthday. We have very fond memories of her within the branch and also in the community.

It was a pleasure to receive such a heartfelt welcome at Croeso Tremle, Pencader on the 16th December. They had prepared very impressive refreshments for us and we had a lovely time singing carols and then talking to the residents.

We would like to wish you a Happy New Year and extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us and take part in our many and varied fun activities. We usually meet at 7 o’clock on the last Monday of the month.

Strawberry Tea With Fun & Games

The morning of Sunday 23rd June dawned bright and sunny however the forecast was not good for the afternoon. The Pavilion Committee had done a super job of preparing the field for the event so that games and other outdoor activities could be held. The Coconut Shy, Clock Golf and Splat the Rat were set up and lines marked out for the sports events.

Parents and children started arriving and games etc. got underway until the rain came down an hour later. A couple of the games could be enjoyed indoors so were taken into the Pavilion. It was such a shame as all who came were prepared to take part in something on the field and be rewarded for their efforts.

The Strawberries and Cream went down well too. The Regeneration Group says a huge thank you to all those individuals who helped make the afternoon such a success, whether they had donated refreshments, cakes, raffle prizes, money or given of their time, we are most grateful. Thanks must also go to the local shops – they are always willing to display a poster and help out when they can.

It was a fun afternoon which will be repeated next year.

Spring Clean Up

Spring Clean Up 13th April 2019
This time we were lucky with the weather, and the regular stalwarts came out and did their area either on the day or during that week.
18 bags were collected (3 black, 9 red and 6 blue) plus an assortment of larger items found at roadside. However, by the time CCC came and collected the bags the next day, someone had dumped a further 10 black bags which seemed to be full of soil and ashes.
This is not acceptable nor is it very community spirited after the hard work done by others.

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

Table-Top Sale
Despite advertising in Clecs, Facebook, Website plus the usual local shops, there were only 4 tables rented out. There were however, quite a few shoppers eager for bargains and have a cuppa and a cake.
The organiser had gone to a lot of trouble to arrange this but once again the result shows the lack of community spirit in the village.
