Clecs Bro Cader Community Newsletter
Online version of the latest edition is available here
Message from Cllr Linda Evans
Following months of closure, by now many holiday and leisure businesses are opening their doors once again, staff returning to work, daily pattern of life changes within families and everyone trying to find some normality. Yes, we are all looking for the new normal.
Through the next uncertain period we should all appreciate what’s important and how valuable it is to share time with family and friends. Being apart has affected every one of us – although we may not be prepared to admit it at times. Although technology has provided some of us with the ability to see each other there is nothing like the companionship and friendship between family and friends.
By this time of year many of us would have made plans for our annual Summer holidays and the weekends within in out calendars would include many activities such as Carnivals, Sport Days, Festivals and Shows just to name a few – for this year again the calendars will be emptier than usual.
Yes, the pandemic kept us apart – together we can see the light at the end of the tunnel getting closer.
Remember you are welcome to contact me any time.
This is indeed our 100th edition of Clecs Bro Cader. The Committee would like to sincerely thank all those who have contributed in any way to help us reach this milestone in our history – the many societies who contribute reports about their activities, the translators, the advertisers, the compilers, the printers and finally the distributors bravely going out in all weathers. As the relevance of Clecs becomes apparent, the number and variety of advertisers has become more diverse – local government, travel companies and a variety of businesses. Without the support and funding from Statkraft Community Fund it would be difficult to envisage how 100 issues could have been achieved. Once again we thank you for entrusting your faith in our ability to deliver the next 100 editions on your behalf.

So another year has commenced and after all the various Christmas concerts and entertainments we enter that period of anti- climax. Thanks to all the organisers and participants who provided so much entertainment and pleasure for those who partook.
The practice amongst some of the refugees over the past three years or so has been to rename their houses, usually to something completely irrelevant and having no regard to its Welsh origin, charm or history. This is often the first sign of worse to come in various forms, ranging from changing the landscape, uprooting trees and even agitating for road humps or other obstructions to hinder the traveller.
Refugees may be welcome but help the community you have chosen to move into and help make that community stronger. Doing nothing is not an endearing option.
No one commented on the absence of the God Slot in the last issue; I take the hint whereby heathens are among us.
