New Penyffordd Primary School for the Village

I have received the following comments on another post. I know not who commented nor do I need to know. The question is are these comments accurate?

Comment 1

"You might want to start asking questions about the plans for the new primary school in the village. Following the merger of the infants and juniors, a plan is in place to merge them on one site.....taking over the community garden, play area, children's park, allotments, caravan park and ....Millstone...all by compulsory purchase.

And our community councillors know about...as do our county councillors.....so the council get to sell off two existing school sites, for housing no doubt, more greedy developers, rob the village of more community amenities and don't give the proverbial for what they are doing to our village"


Comment 2

"I've heard the same...outline planning permission to be put in soon, but the headmistress at the school has the plans!

The amount of money invested in the Millstone...people prepared to invest in a local business and will see it all taken away...all the homes on the caravan park....the time and money put in by allotment holders....with councillor support......more children's play space taken away...more development likely.....less and less care shown by our civil representatives....just look at how the voted for the new incinerator....how may councillors were missing from the vote....dereliction of duty...can't be bothered to turn up......or just pretend it isn't happening so i don't get tarred with voting for it"

The Red Arrows over Penyffordd


The Red Arrows flew in formation over Penyffordd at 12.30 today.
Also between 3 and 4 pm

Makes me proud to be British.

There were other flyovers including a puff of smoke from one.
A salute to Penyffordd?

Here's a couple of videos taken.




Penyffordd Meditation


Not something I thought I would write about regards Penyffordd. In my youth I learnt Transcendental Meditation and later practiced Hatha Yoga which included two one week retreats on the Island of Bardsey.

The above group's website is here http://earthstar108.co.uk/index.html
