October 2019

Many thanks to all those, especially from this group, who have so freely given me their time and support, over the past three months. You know who you are and I truly love you all (in my way!) for your kindness and support. By December I plan to be almost as good as new again. Improvements occur weekly I notice.

The defibrillators have started arriving and it is planned that there will soon be one near you. Watch for further details. The supply of these important machines is from several sources; I understand that Statkraft have supplied one in Alltwalis, one in Gwyddgrug and the one at Pencader cemetery. Other funding is supplying the remaining ones in Pencader, Llanfihangel and Pontyweli. New Inn has been fortunate to have had one privately funded by an anonymous benefactor. More information when it is known.

Autumn Clean Up Saturday 12th October, please meet up at the Pavilion at 10.00am in the effort to make a difference to your area.

Clarification– the Regeneration group is not a charity, never has been and never will be. Whatever profit we make at the events we organise (usually little) goes into general funds used for running the group. Insurance, venue hire and other expenses all have to be met. Of course if you are really concerned then you could come along to our meetings and see the financial report presented at each meeting. You will be welcome on the third Monday of the month at 7.30pm at the Pavilion.

August 2019

Some very interesting work is being conducted adjacent to the housing association flats in the centre of the village. Thermal Earth is extracting heat from deep underground to be utilised in the flats. Children from the school have been visiting the site to see the drilling rig and allied operations and learn about renewable energy.

Several events have been organised by the Regeneration Group this year, the Board Games afternoon was the least popular but fortunately we provided our own children who had a very pleasant and amusing afternoon.

The Table-Top Sale could have been better supported than it was, but Storm Hannah with the torrential rain did not help.

The most recent event “Strawberry Tea” proved to be the most successful, with the added attraction of games and sports on the immaculately presented field.

Unfortunately, the rain arrived but it did not dampen the afternoon’s enjoyment as some games were moved inside the Pavilion.

As a Group we do thank you and welcome your support in helping to add to group funds.

The main attraction is being held on Saturday 14th September – the annual Fun Garden and Craft Show. The schedule for this is printed on the back of this newsletter so there is no reason for not knowing about it and certainly no excuse for not entering some of the numerous classes designed to appeal to all ages, tastes and abilities.

It is interesting to note that the speed humps removed from opposite the Space Loo have so far failed to reappear despite my predictions.

In future there is to be a “God Spot” at the conclusion of these columns, something for the reader to consider. Should any reader have something they wish to share, please let me know.

In the meantime, the first one is: 1 Peter, Chapter 3, verses 8 and 9
