October 2019

The meeting was chaired by Stuart Wilson.

Despite it being published so late and having fewer pages than usual, those present said the October issue of Clecs was a very good one, and thanks to Keith and Jane for their determination to get this issue out. Discussion continued on the subject of how many readers actually read their copy of Clecs through the Welsh language side. It is the dual language that seems to deter potential editors as any who have shown an interest only speak English and we rely heavily on a couple of very faithful and overworked translators.

Some superb aerial photos of the local community had been posted on the website and various items had been updated. Visits to the website had increased by 20%.

The Fun Garden and Craft Show had generated a profit of over £170, a much needed boost to general funds. It looks as if larger premises will be needed for next year.

It was suggested that Clecs readers are asked to submit suggestions for the handicraft section at the beginning of the year, thus giving potential entrants more time to get their entries done.

The Autumn Clean Up had been disappointing with only three people turning up on the day. A sharp contrast to the first Clean Up in May 2003 when 23 people came to help.

There will be another Remembrance Day service at Tabernacle Chapel on Sunday 10th November to be taken by community members. All are welcome.

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.

At the meeting on 16th December John Hubert will be presenting a slide show of some of his aerial photos of the villages, there will be also be a cuppa and mince pies.

August 2019

This meeting was taken by Vice Chairman, Chris Fuller, although Stuart attended, he preferred to take a back seat this time.
The August Clecs had been distributed and adverts for a replacement Editor had been put around the area and on the Facebook page, in the hope someone will come forward and take on the role.
Plans for the Fun Garden & Craft Show were well underway. Chairman’s Bloomers had also been judged and winners will get their certificates shortly.
The Autumn Clean up will be held on Saturday 12th October; the Council will be asked for the usual equipment to be delivered.
There will be no September meeting so next one will be Monday October 21st.

July 2019

The Strawberry Tea had been a great success and the games were well  attended but after an hour the rain came down and curtailed the fun. Some activities were able to be carried out inside. Hopefully next year will
be better but it gave a much needed boost to the Group funds.
More work had been done on the website and it was now possible to monitor visitor numbers etc to the site and from which country.
The August edition of Clecs was almost finished and should be with the printers soon.

June 2019

Sadly, Dotti announced she would have to give up as Clecs Editor due to a recent major health scare, she was thanked by the group for all that she had done during her term as Editor.

 The June Clecs had been distributed and a flyer to advertise the Strawberry Tea afternoon had been put into each local copy. Final details for the Sunday event were discussed, prizes for the raffle would be needed and also cakes for the refreshments.

 Descriptive plaques had been bought for the Jane Billington Award. Stuart had spoken to the headmistress at school and she said the children would contribute artwork for the Show in September.

 Thanks to a local craftsman for replacing the slats on the oak bench at the Panel Area, it has also been scrubbed and cleaned. All the daffodils had been cut back and the planter replaced with summer bedding plants. There is some repair work needed to be done on the Interpretation panel itself but don’t know who to contact.
