I’m sure even you can manage that, drop by when it’s being done, take a camera, there will be a fantastic photo opportunity for you, another to add to the collection on the Abertillery and Llanhilleth Town Council website.

Any news no the appointment of the Town Clerk?


We don`t need to explain to people like you.


Ah, the arrogance of a party that thinks it`ll get elected even if they put up a monkey (as they frequently do).

Town centre`s looking nice btw  Laughing

Amazing, you shake a tree and look what falls out!
And what do you mean ‘people like you’?
 
But you are correct in your assumption, I don’t want YOU to explain anything to me. I would much rather have a conversation with an adult.

Anyway I would have thought that you would be too busy rallying around and supporting your friend to be no here wasting your time with your pitiful postings.

Who are you going to give the bullets to fire, now that you are on your own?

Nope! By the way did you see a menton of Scully, the civic car and a bottle of Drambuie on Speakeasy? Can't think what they were referring to  Very Happy

Not on speakeasy, but plenty more to come out and Scully's not involved.

Talking of churches, why is Jubilee Square still locked and unaccessible to the public whose money was put into the construction of it ?

Last weekend the weather was wonderful, with lots of people milling around the town.  What better reason would there have been to open up the square. I think, the people in town would have loved to have gone in, sat down and just used it for the purpose it was build.  What a shame it was locked up.

I hope we don't have to wait until our French friends come over before it's opened.

Interesting to read what Jim Roles wrote in his end of term Chairman’s statement
‘He expressed concern at the amount of mis-information in circulation’
If he means that some people are quoting that the Community Council costs the Council Tax payer £90,000 per year, why didn’t he just come out and make a statement of the correct amount?
Why did he try to baffle us with his ‘ The amount paid to maintain the Community Council through the council tax is actually 26 pence for a Band A Property (72% of houses are in this category) per household per week.’
How much are the other 28% of Abertillery and Llanhilleth Council Tax payers paying?
What exactly does this amount equate to, and why be so vague about the exact amount?

Hopefully the new Chair, Glyn Smith, will be a little more open than Jimbo.

Bit late for some of them isn't it?

Did you do a typo Bry?
I think 'Traffice mismanagement would be a better term.
It took the council over 5 years to put a filter lane by 'the Rugby' to ease congestion after I suggested it in 2008.

To my knowledge at least 3 people have already fallen into the unprotected/uncovered storm drain between Alma St and Tillery St (Tillery St side, opposite Newall St junction.)

I've been told that Cllr McCarthy had a site meeting there with one of his constituents, who was considering launching a claim against the council.

Well over 18 mionths later and it's still a big danger.

The proposed Carmel St Car Park is subtitled 'the demolition of the former Palace Cinema, aka Arena' and the council have already sent letters to residents in the proximity regarding its intentions (despite the owner knowing nothing of it apparently).

The Tillery and Division Streets 'enhancement scheme' should surely, on past experience be termed 'rip it up and start again' scheme. After all, that's what's happened to the Foundry Bridge, Tillery and Division streets (Foundry Square should have been where the waste ground is.
Interestingly it's not now called the 'War Memorial Relocation scheme'. (More on this one in a week or two I think).

And who's the private car park for in Chapel St.????

The council can't consult that way I don't think. It would have to be a Planning matter.

Might have to make a bit of time I suspect.   Twisted Evil

Cue nEddie Smith (tho' this isn't about ex-Aberystywth - yet)...........................

The private car park is supposedly for the residents of Bon Marche house.

Nothing to do with this but allegedly there's moves to knock down both Bryngwyn & Queen Street Schools to put up another modern day eyesore.

Town Council website is now more than 1 month old ie behind.

Apparently Jim Roles is still Chairman and Graham Bartlett has still announced his intention to retire.

I heard tonight that the new 'Town Clerk' has allegedly had their offer of employment revoked due to er... their pronouncement and publication of personal views that were counter to those expected of someone who in the future would be the mainstay of the council.

Can anyone enlighten us?

I can certainly tell you that governance and management of Abertillery & Llanhilleth Community Council is giving me cause for concern.

* I'm given to understand that following the Borough Council's wish to relocate the War Memorial the 'town council' - which is the steward and custodian of it - sent a letter to BG stating that it did not want it moved.
WHY? (send the letter that is). It's for A&LCC to start the process, not the other way around !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

* The 'town council' is a statutory consultee in a number of aspects, yet it appears that when BGCBC has been making the appropriate approaches not all of these have been reported and discussed by the council (the above re. the War memorial is an example).

* There are question marks over Twinning issues, especially the original arrangements and the creation/running of the Twinning Association.
At least one high profile and highly respected organisation's local branch pulled out.

* The appointment of co-opted councillors was effected by secret ballot, which I believe was irregular and quite possibly inappropriate and hence invalid.

The WAO will be the arbiter of such matters no doubt.

I can confirm that the appointed Town Clerk has had the offer revoked  and the job has gone to the son of a town councillor from what I've been told. Name of Tidey?

His mother is on the town council apparantly.

That would be Christine Tidey, who's appointment (as co-opted member) is soon to be the subject of scrutiny ????????

Oh - and a word of advice to the original successful candidate.
An offer, verbal or in writing is a contract, and breach of contract is a tort, actionable in a civil court.

Methinks that the 'town council' is getting itself in deeper and deeper.

Not so much tidying the rubbish but rubbishing the Tidey (mater that is) ?   Laughing  Laughing  Laughing

i understand that some people on here have been slagging my family and myself off with rubbish about me becoming the next town clerk of Abertillery and Llanhilleth Community Council. May i take this opportunity to say nothing can be further from the truth. I havent the slightest interest in politics and anyone who knows me also knows this.Ex councillor Rocke should know this as he knows me reasonably well and im surprised he should lead an attack on me as to my knowledge ive never done anything to him. However unless i receive a full apology then perhaps he would like a letter from my solicitor. At least he has the guts to put his name on here compared to the rest of you delightful cowards who remain anonymous.
