I went to the Penyffordd Against Redrow meeting the other night at the Legion. Looking around I saw Cllrs David Williams, Cindy Hinds and Linda Vidamour ( edit :Jeff Priddin ) among'st the 100 plus attendance. Perhaps there were others there. There's a couple of cllr faces I don't know. Not many councillors present anyway. Disappointing.
What was refreshing was to see concerned villagers galvanised into action. Protest boards up and running. Two meetings already. All in a matter of weeks. Bright young people with the knowledge and determination to make maximum impact against urban sprawl.
( Penyffordd Council next meet mid September, results of meeting published mid October)
Also the developing of a proposed community plan that is the way forward for Flintshire communities. A new website to be up and running.
The calling of expertise within the community to help.
This is indeed new village politics ie. no politics at all.
I will put up details of the proposed community plan for those who have not seen.
postscript: Cllrs present 4 out of a possible 10?
