Sponsor a tree...... Penyffordd Community Council

I have a tree I can see out my window. Over a 100 feet high, possibly the highest tree in the village. 

Eucalyptus it is. Keeps its leaves whatever the weather, magnificent.  Where we walk the dogs is an estate that was developed 1832. Spoils of the Napoleonic Wars. Giant beeches that did not show their beauty when planted but ideal for the few that traverse this area.. Such vision. May it remain secluded.

Bin News

Flintshire County Council have been around Penyffordd district today taking photos of over flowing bins. Not enough recycling taking place apparently.

I think households get a written warning and if ignored a fine.

I can see families struggling with this.

Bus Service Reduction

Not sure if this is the same issue as Penyffordd but they have gained a positive result.

School Time Capsule

I heard recently there was a problem with the time capsule buried in the grounds of the former Penymynydd Rd primary school. No one could remember where it was hidden.................
I'm sure it was just unsubstantiated gossip.

Bus News

The removal of direct bus services continues.
I'm reading that there will no longer be a direct bus to Chester from today.
This of course hits older people who do not have transport.

As a teenager using Crosville to get to school I developed a life long allergy of public transport.

Penyffordd Crime

I think we are relatively unscathed but.................
Things happen.

Tonight The Vounog.
Someone opens a door, dogs rush to door, intruder retreats.

Two night ago someone is escorted from a house in Fammau View by police, a car involved.

Penyffordd Facebook page is the best way of keeping up with local crime.

A creature I have never seen alive

We know where many badger setts are when walking with the dogs. We see the occasional fox.  We leave dog food out for them occasionally. God's creatures.

A New Years Day walk around the secret lake

It's not really a secret lake but not many people in Penyffordd know about it. We accessed it from Stryt Isa. Not much parking, room for about 3 cars near the footpath. You walk over the field, over the official railway crossing to get to the lake. Part of the walk is on FCC footpath, the other part on a permissive footpath courtesy of the owner. Takes about 45 mins to walk around, a bit muddy in places.

Met the owner on the way around. Had a chat about the lake etc.

Also met Klaus Armstrong Braun former county councillor.  Had a chat with Klaus for half an hour or more. He was armed with a camera and binoculars. I asked if he was a twitcher lol. He says no.

He still keeps an interest in environment, in this case the wet lands around the lake.

Klaus of course ruffled a few feathers in the village over footpaths and in many other wards. Telling me about landowners, crossbows and guns lol.

The main entrance in Hope has better parking facilities
