Community Council Meeting
15 April 2014
Items of Interest from Community Council Meeting 15th April :

Matters Arising from Previous Meeting:

Outstanding Roadworks: The potholes in Dol Hendre and the blocked gulley in Berwyn Street have been reported to the Highways Department and added to their “to do” list.

Tender for Grass Cutting – Season 2014: A revised tender has been received and accepted.

Llanfyllin Ambulance Support: County Councillor Mayor has advised that he has arranged a meeting with a representative from the Welsh Ambulance Service to be held in Penybontfawr on 27th May, at 7pm, to which representatives from all the local Town and Community Councils have been invited to attend, to air their concerns about the proposed move of the ambulance station to Welshpool.

Temporary Closure of Post Office: As there had been no further information from the Post Office Customer Relations Department it would appear that the Llangynog Post will temporarily close after the 28th April until such time as a replacement for the sub-postmaster is found. The nearest Post Office after that date will be Siop Erianfa in Penybontfawr.

Any Other Business:

Repair of Path in St Melangell’s Churchyard: A request had been received from the Parochial Church Council asking that consideration be given to repairing and widening the path from the lytch gate to the Church entrance, as it was breaking up in places and becoming hazardous. It was resolved to arrange a site meeting on Friday 25th April at 5pm to inspect and discuss the request.

Dog Fouling in St Melangell’s Churchyard: A complaint had been received from the Grass Cutting Contractor that dogs had been fouling in the St Melangell’s Churchyard. It was resolved to write to all dog owners in the vicinity of the Churchyard asking them to ensure that their dogs are prevented from entering the confines of the Churchyard unsupervised. A sign has been displayed at the lytch gate for the attention of visitors with dogs.

Date of Next Meeting: The next Community Council meeting will be held on Tuesday 20th May 2014 at 7.30pm. If anyone has any concerns about anything affecting the village or any suggestions for improvements, please contact the Clerk or any one of the Councillors on the list displayed on the Public Notice Board.
