Comment and analysis on Welsh social and political issues from a right of centre nationalist perspective. But all done in the best possible taste, and not without humour.
The wrestling was such a roaring success that Britannia Wrestling Promotions (www.britanniawrestling.co.uk) have been asked to return to Penyffordd Royal British Legion on Friday 18 January 2013.
Last time (October 2012) the show sold out within 20 minutes of the doors opening - we had to turn away around 30-40 people (sorry!) - however this is one of the smaller venues that Britannia Wrestling Promotions run shows at, so only 170 people are permitted entry.
To avoid disappointment next time around, we highly recommend that tickets are purchased in advance at Penyffordd Royal British Legion for just £5 each.
A whole array of British and International Superstars will be returning to Penyffordd for an even BIGGER night of family entertainment.

Tami: Does the hon. Gentleman accept that it also happens the other way? I
have come across cases in which supermarkets have turned around and said that
they do not want an order any more at very short notice. The supermarkets
have the power to say to smaller suppliers, “Take it or leave it,
because we can go elsewhere and you cannot.”

With regards the Penyffordd Community Council Grants Meeting held on the 31st Oct 2012. I would like to see a full view of what went on. Which organisations received money, which councillor voted for each organisation and who voted against the Penyffordd Wine Circle.
For example what I ask for above was not what went down in the minutes last year. Cllrs were not recorded as to their voting on individual organisations.
As Clerk you will of course want to portray an accurate view of the meeting I'm sure
Pen-y-ffordd Area Community Association - PACA have put in for funding for a scooter /skate area on the Millstone Playing field. This came about because two boys went to see Mrs Jess Thomas to see how they could go about fulfilling their wishes. Jess, the boys and two of their friends, parents of the boys and Sean Le Tissier, Chair of the Association, and myself went to see Mark Tami, M.P. and Carl Sargeant, A.M. at their surgery. This escalated in the boys getting a petition together and going back to the M.P.'s surgery to present the petition. PACA has now submitted a package to the Welsh Assembly Government for the funding (including the petitions from the boys and letters from both the M.P. and the A.M.). It was so good to see the enthusiasm these youngsters had. Any time now we should know whether we receive the funding or not.
Community Garden - The Community garden is looking better now after help from Bernard (Scout Leader) and Phil Lofthouse and all the residents who have allotments. A little more needs doing and the Association want it completed as soon as possible.
PACA is putting on a Christmas Fayre on the Red Lion Car Park on the 1st December starting at 11.30 am and finishing at 5 pm. All sorts of stalls, Father Christmas, Carol Singing etc. Please come out and support the Association as all the funds they raise are for facilities in the community. Unfortunately our Christmas Eve Carol Singing event will not be possible this year.

I know him only as David. He was 52 years of age. David was a town crier. Always smartly dressed. David strode around the village, his attire from a different century.
His death sudden as he was seen on the same day that he passed away.
The full story in The Flintshire Chronicle. Cllr Tom Jones is second right to the fragrant Cllr Carolyn Thomas (Treuddyn), second to back row. In the back row (next to the lift) is former Treuddyn Cllr Idris Jones.
Idris who is in his 80's remembers life in Treuddyn when times were hard. Council meetings were held in Welsh up unto 1989. Idris a lovely man always a story or twenty to tell about Nant y Ffrith.
