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.
It was nice to see a new face from New Inn joining the group. Work on the new website www.pencader.org.uk continues, the new data had been uploaded onto the website, however quite a large amount had got ‘lost in transit’ and means a lot
more work for John and Emma to restore it. However the new site is now accessible by all devices including mobiles and tablets.
The schedule for the September Garden & Craft Show had been agreed and an item would be prepared for the front page to promote the Jane Billington Award. The schedule would be included as the back pages of the June and August editions of
Clecs Bro Cader.
The results from the Table-Top sale were disappointing, support was lacking from both sellers and people coming in the door. Louisa commented that not enough members come and help with new ideas and events. The Group has to move with the times to attract younger people from the community if it is to survive.
Current website had been updated with latest CBC, plus info from Skanda Vale about their planned walking events. The updated website files had now been sent to SCL for them to swap the sites over.
Table-Top sale being promoted on website and Facebook, posters to be distributed to usual outlets.
The group were told there will be no Carnival this year due to lack of community support.
Nine helpers had taken part in the Clean Up and 18 bags of litter collected. By the next day time CCC came next day to remove the 18 bags someone had added a further 10 black bags of soil and ashes.
This is not acceptable, nor is dumping of rubbish behind the wall by the bridge.
The new planter has been installed at the panel area, and thanks sent to the maker for his generosity.
Invoices sent out for CBC advert renewals, it was agreed that if not paid by time issue due to go to press then advert would be deleted.
Postage costs due to rise at end of month so stock of stamps for mailing CBC copies
purchased at current rate to keep costs in line with grant application.
Louisa now taken over as Facebook coordinator Work continues on new website, the Online Directory needs updating, request to go in CBC for new entries.
Quote received for repairing hardwood bench, awaiting another one before decision can be made.
Clean up- forms submitted to CCC with request for equipment.
Skanda Vale had asked Group for letter of support for a project that they are submitting to Brechfa Windfarm fund. It was agreed to support their application.
