CYMUNED 100TH EDITION

On this the 100th Edition of  The Cymuned Newsletter it is only fitting that I take this opportunity to sincerely thank Malcolm for his dedication and perseverance in editing the newsletter throughout it’s existence. It is the vehicle that binds the community together and ensures that we are all aware of the activities within Cymuned and the surrounding community.
 
The first edition, published in November 2009, referred to the setting up of Cymuned Pennant as a result of a consensus within the area for retaining the school as a community centre. The view was that the centre was to be an inclusive organisation open to all to use and contribute to it’s running.

I trust that we have kept to those ideals in maintaining the centre as a vibrant facility for the whole area which the community now owns.

This has only been possible through the tireless efforts the volunteers that organise events and maintain the building and strive to improve the facilities.

Thanks to you all

Dafydd Edwards (Chairman/Trustee)


YOUR NEWSLETTER

I have attached a copy of the first newsletter which goes to illustrate how things have moved on and developed in your community.

Things will always change and, over the period that the newsletter has been published, we have lost loved ones and some good friends. 

At this time there are12 properties in the village up for sale.      

The newsletter attempts to keep you up to date with changes taking place with the local authority, benefits and grants and crime.

More importantly it is there for you. If you have any news or details of events in the area,
personal celebrations or articles of interest please let me know.

I will endeavour to keep you informed.
 


VILLAGE TREASURE HUNT

This year’s treasure hunt will take place on Friday 15th June, 2018.

As usual the start time will be between 6.00pm and 6.30pm from Pennant Community Centre.

You will have the opportunity to select a meal for when you arrive at the designated finish point.

Cost will be £2.00 per person.
Come along and have an enjoyable evening
 
 

KARINE EVANS

We had the sad news of the death of Karine Evans of Awelon, Pennant, on Saturday 31st March, 2018, after a short illness.

Karine had been a member and supporter of Cymuned from the day the community group started. She was also known for playing the organ during services and events at The Church and Chapel.

Her great love was playing Bingo but she had very limited success at our local Bingo nights.

Our thoughts are of her and with her family.
 

SPONSOR OUR RUNNER

We have an intrepid and brave resident of Pennant running the London Marathon for a local charity. Martin Darby, Swn Yr Efail, Pennant obtained his place via the ballot of applicants.

He considers that he must be a bit stupid as he has only ever run half marathons, 10k's and 5k's so he knows it’s going to hurt lots!

He is raising funds for the local Cylch Meithrin Glan Y Mor, Llanrhystud, Please donate as much as you can to help the children of this small village Meithrin. It would be much appreciated.

On the plus side the children of the Meithrin will also be designing the top that Martin will be running in!  Trying to get them involved and interested!.

Donations, online through the email address below: -

BROADBAND

Broadband connection, to the fibre network in Pennant, is via the new green cabinet situated by the Church. Fibre optic cable feeds into the cabinet from Aberaeron via Aberarth. From the cabinet there are still copper cables running to properties. This restricts the signal transmission due to the limitation of using copper cables and the length of cable from your property to the cabinet. This is not the case in Cross Inn, Nebo and some other surrounding areas, which have been provided with fibre to their properties. Would you be interested in finding out what it would cost to have your property connected direct with fibre? Please let me know.
 

USE THE SPARE CAPACITY

From looking at the monthly calendar, for your Community Centre, you can see that we are probably busier than any other local village hall or community centre.

However, we have vacancies for other groups or societies to make use of the hard earned facilities.

If you would like a Music Club, History Group, Book Club, Afternoon Tea Club, or any other interest group please let us know. Remember – No committee required. Just let us know when and arrangements will be put in place. Simple!
 

DENNIS BOYD

Thank you to all the people, from the village, who attended Dennis’s Funeral at Aberystwyth Crematorium on Monday 19th February.

Dennis was a quiet man and enjoyed nothing more than walking his dog ‘Tilley’, playing golf and his music. He will be missed.
 
 

BROADBAND

If you haven’t already heard the new telecoms cabinet in the village is now live. You can now order fibre and high speed broadband connections from your supplier. It has taken three and a half years so let’s hope it doesn’t take too long to get up and running.
 
 

C
OMMUNITY CENTRE AVAILABILTY

Is there something that you would like to run at your Community Centre.

You will see from the monthly diary that there is no day time use on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays. The other days have limited use but also remember that there are two rooms.

See if you have a group of like-minded people who would want to get together and follow their interests and contact Malcolm Sumner.
 
 

DEATH OF LYNDA BUSHBY

It is with sadness that I announce the death of Lynda Bushby, late of Buckswood, Pennant. 

She passed away on the morning of 8th January, 2018, at Abermad Nursing Home after a long illness. 

The funeral will be private no cards or flowers please. 

Any enquiries to Anne McKenzie 01974 272804.

BROADBAND

A further update, on when the ‘fast fibre broadband’ will be available, has been solicited from engineers. It has been stated that the service should be initiated sometime in January 2018.

Things have been delayed due to a problem that has arisen from an installation error.
 


CONTACT DETAILS

You can receive the newsletter, social updates and any issues relating to crime or any suspicious activities immediately.

HAPPY NEW YEAR
FOR 2018

Help to improve your community and become part of it. 
Don’t be a Stranger
 
 
 
 
Wishing Everyone A Very Merry Christmas
Diolch i bawb yn Nadolig Llawen iawn

Thank you to everyone who has supported and helped at your Community Centre through 2016.

We need to get all those that live in the village to become part of the Community during 2017.

Always remember that there is always someone who can help in Pennant.

You shouldn't be a stranger in your own Community


 
CHRISTMAS 2017

This is the 9th Christmas that we, as a Community, have had the use of the old school building. As the Community own the building this should be a facility that can be used for many more years to come, if we all support and use it. The modern idiom, with people no supporting groups, organisations oe vents brings to mind the well worn saying, "Use It Or Lose It!".

Everyone should be proud of the work and support afforded by all the Directors/Trustees who freely give their time to organise events, maintain the building and look at options to raise funds or obtain grants to improve the facilities.
We always have room for people willing to volunteer or help in anyway.

I would like to thank all volunteers for their hard work and support this year, Ron & Debbie Cutler, David Edmonds, David Jeremiah, Annmarie Butlin, Ian Lampert, John & Elaine Bradshaw and our ever active Chairman and County Councillor Dafydd Edwards. Also everyone who answered the call when work parties were put together to sort out maintenance and cleaning of the building.

None of the above would matter if you the Community did not support the venture in attending the Clubs, Groups, Socials, etc. This is run for the Community by the Community. I would like to thank you all for your support.

I would like to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.

Why not see what you would like to have or organise at your Centre. Start something new for the New Year so others can join in. You only have to arrange the meeting time and date. No need for any formalities.

USE & HELP YOUR COMMUNITY CENTRE
 
We are always looking for new ideas to make use of your community centre. At the present time there are very few day time activities so what ideas do you have? Remember that whatever is run at the Centre, as part of the community and not a commercial enterprise, does not have to be formal. It can just be a gathering of like-minded people with a common interest e.g. book club, table tennis group, darts group, mother & children group, etc.
 
‘Why Not Become A Part of Your Community’ - by running, helping to run, or organising existing events at the Centre. We are always looking for more helping hands or volunteers.
 
If you have any ideas for events, groups or functions or feel that you can or want to help with anything that is presently being run, or you can offer any other assistance please contact the newsletter editor


YOU AND YOUR CENTRE

Do you have any ideas or want to run any new groups, classes or sessions?
 
Do you feel that you could help run, assist or organise events at the Centre?
 
We are always looking for ideas and help, along with new volunteers, for your Community Centre.
 
If you feel that you want to help with anything that is presently being run or offer any other assistance please contact the newsletter editor.
