Welcome to the Glyn Tarell Community Council website
Warm spaces directory launched ( 9 December 2022) A directory that lists places that can offer Powys people a warm welcome this winter has been launched by the county council. Powys County Council’s Warm Spaces Directory is made up of libraries, community centres, churches and other places that are opening their doors to anyone who needs them. The council has worked together with its partners as well as community groups and other organisations across the county to provide this network of warm spaces, which can offer Powys people a warm welcome this winter and a chance to socialise, work or take part in activities whilst keeping warm. The directory can be found by visiting www.powys.gov.uk/costofliving – the council’s cost of living information hub. The warm spaces directory will be available in Welsh shortly. The information hub, which was launched in October, has a wide range of information in one place to ensure people know what help is already available and how to access it. Cllr Matthew Dorrance, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for a Fairer Powys, said: “The cost of living crisis that the UK is experiencing is putting unprecedented pressures on people, who will be forced to make tough decisions about when and what they eat, what they can do in life, and when they can afford to heat their home. “The warm space network can offer Powys people a warm welcome this winter and a chance to socialise, work or take part in activities whilst keeping warm. “I would like to thank those organisations that have come forward to provide a warm space this winter.  They will be making a positive difference to our communities and will be helping Powys people during this crisis.” Community groups and other organisations in Powys who are willing to provide a warm space can still fill in an Expression of Interest form by visiting www.powys.gov.uk/costofliving and clicking Creating warm spaces for Powys.

DOG FOULING IN CAE’R AFALLEN PLAYING FIELD The Community Council have had numerous complaints that children have come into contact with dog excrement when playing in Parc Cae’r Afallen. In spite of notices requesting dog owners to pick up  droppings left by by their animals, some residents have flagrantly ignored the request. The Council have therefore, with regret, decided to ban dogs from the field. ************************************************************************ COMMUNITY COUNCIL ACCOUNTS The Accounts of the Glyn Tarell Community Council that are to go to annual audit are available for public inspection. ************************************************************************[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
