COMMUNITY/COUNCIL ISSUES:

  • A local resident asked the Committee is anything can be done regarding the car park at Bodorgan Railway Station. There is only room for 2 vehicles to park there at present, as a number of other vehicles have been parked in the rest of the car park for some time.  Cllr B Owen to investigate.
  • It was reported by a member of the group that there are a number of vehicles parked in a field near Sain Gôg, Bodorgan. The gates to this field appear to be locked and the area also had barbed wire placed around the gates. Cllr B Owen will look into this issue.

Memorial at Crist-y-Brenin Church on Remembrance Sunday to mark the centenary of the end of WW1.  It was also suggested that the plaque of remembrance of WW1 removed from Sardis Chapel be placed at Clwt Glas Picnic area, and that future poppy wreaths could be placed there, together with a small service every year.  Cllr. Peter Rogers will lay a wreath on behalf of Malltraeth Ymlaen at the Llangefni Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday.

  • Broadband – Capel Aris reported that the Community Scheme to connect overhead fibre optic wires for broadband at Paradwys has been given an estimated cost of £93,000.
