Could you support us?

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

The next meeting will be on Monday 15th October at 7:30 pm, in the Pavilion.

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.

January – The AGM took place first and all officers were nominated for re-election;

Chairperson Stuart Wilson

Vice Chairperson Chris Fuller

Secretary/Treasurer Jane Griffiths

Chairman’s and Treasurer’s reports were given and the need for further fundraising was discussed together with ways to attract more supporters. Monthly meeting followed on from AGM. If printers had to specially order the lighter weight paper for Clecs, as they do not normally stock it, then this would cancel out the cheaper cost of postage. Christmas lights had been judged and certificates given out.

A possible new deliverer has offered to help with distribution.

No replies to requests for help with website or Clecs.

December – A tentative enquiry had been received about editor for Clecs, but no contact details given. Clecs Postage costs discussed and whether it would be cheaper to use lighter weight paper. Liability insurance due next month and cost had increased, need for fund raising discussed.

November -  More distributors need for Clecs as two have moved away from the area. Request for help with website and also Clecs posted on website. Innogy holding meeting to discuss Community Fund from new wind farm at Brechfa Forest Christmas Lights competition will be held again this year.

October - Garden & Craft Show was very successful, will need more space next year. Results had been posted up at several locations around the villages and on Facebook as too long to wait until December to read in  newsletter.

It was good to see several children helping at the Clean Up.

August- Plans for Garden & Craft show finalised.
There were not many gardens to be considered for the Chairman’s Bloomers, more people seem to have pots and containers rather than traditional gardens.
Date fixed for Autumn Clean Up.
No Meeting in September

July – Garden & Craft show details discussed. Copy of schedule to be sent to Editor to form back pages of September Clecs as usual. Copies will also be left in shops. Cllr Linda reported that yet again Pencader had been unsuccessful with the funding application that would include a pavement down from Tremle to Masescader. The recently cultivated area in the grass by the bus stop at Maescader is supposed to be a wild flower area. Turbine parts deliveries were causing traffic hold ups on the Carmarthen road. Residents can request text message from Innogy to notify times of daily deliveries.

June – Banners had been made to promote the Group at various events and also one for the Garden Show. Notice board to be removed from Local Bargain wall and relocated at pavilion by PIDA due to difficulty of access to it. All copies of June CBC that were left in local shops had gone within a week. Webmaster is appealing for someone to help with the website and routine maintenance.

May – Garden Show schedule had been agreed and would be in September Clecs. Concern had been expressed about the access to the Community Notice Board on the wall of Local Bargain. It has been suggested relocating this at the Pavilion.

April – A successful “Clean Up” was held. It was heartening to see some new faces helping us.. The group will have a stall at the School Fair in July. We hope to be selling greeting cards. There is a need to produce an information sheet or poster explaining the group’s role in the Community. The New collection of Garden Waste was discussed. The Information can only be seen on the County Council’s website. However perhaps it should be remembered that not all households have access to a computer.

March – Statkraft have kindly released the first payment of the grant allocated to us for the production of the newsletter. The March issue of “Clecs Bro Cader” with the colourful cover page was very well received, congratulations to the typesetter for an excellent issue. It was suggested to ask the school to produce a “Children’s Page” for “Clecs Bro Cader”.

February –The March edition of “Clecs Bro Cader” has been sent to the printers, all thanks to our new typesetter. CAVS is no longer in charge of the website it has been transferred to the group. An appeal has been launched by John for support by anyone with website experience. “Pencader Community Group” has set up a “Facebook page. Unfortunately it can only be accessed by Facebook members.

Complaints made to CCC about the state of the public footpaths on the Pencader Loop walk, stiles are broken and paths are impassable in places.
