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.

May 2019

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.

 

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.

 

 

 

NEW EDITOR FOR CLECS BRO CADER

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a new Editor for Clecs Bro Cader, the highly valued and appreciated bilingual Community Newsletter for Pencader and District as from October 2019

Applicants must be computer literate, competent in word-processing and graphics management, able to communicate with other groups in the area and be able to work to a deadline. The ability to speak Welsh would be an advantage.

Although there is no remuneration for this position, it would be possible to reimburse for computer consumables used in preparing each edition.

The Regeneration Group have published 6 editions a year of Clecs Bro Cader for just over twelve years, issue 96 has just been added to the website.

If a new editor cannot be found, then the August issue will be the last one. It would be such a shame if this very popular publication, which has been described as providing a vital community service, has to stop.

 

If you think you may be up to the challenge please contact:

Jane Griffiths – Tel 01559 384187 or email janegriffithsuk@btinternet.com for further information

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.
