We have ended the year on a very wet note with continuous rain and floods everywhere. I spent Christmas with my sister and her family in Yorkshire and on Christmas Eve we visited the beautiful town of Hebdon Bridge for last minute shopping and lunch. Sadly two days later those same shops and cafés were under water.
We start the New Year with some good news. As you are aware the new traffic calming will be installed in the village centre soon and this will include a 20mph limit and speed cushions. In addition it has now been decided to include new street lights. These will be the latest energy saving lighting and they will also direct the light down onto the road rather than light up the whole countryside.
One or two houses will be affected by the siting of new lamp stands and those residents will be contacted in due course.
The Community Shop project continues at a pace and I think we should thank all those on the committee for all their hard work and commitment. I believe that nearly fifty people have now indicated that they would like to help by volunteering in the shop once it is open. This is great news for the community.
As many of you may have read in the local press, the Welsh Government has not cut the county’s funding by as much as we had been led to believe. This means that we will not have to find the additional two million in savings we had been planning for and it may also mean that council tax may not have to rise as much as we had feared. Wales did relatively well out of the Chancellor’s autumn statement but it may also be something to do with the fact that there are Welsh Assembly elections in May 2016.
In these difficult times I would like to wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year and I look forward to working with you all for the good of the Community in 2016.
