It is with sadness that Llangunnor Community Council reports

during which the people and community of Llangunnor were always his priority,
he will be greatly missed. The Chair of the Community Council, Cllr Glenda
Lloyd said “obviously our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad
time, Merlin had so much experience of Council business, both at a local and
County level, he will be great loss to the Council”.

Dyfed-Powys Police have been
working closely with its communities and partner agencies to develop a
community speed watch initiative.
Community speed watch schemes
aim to share the responsibility for addressing speed related offending
between the community, the police and other agencies. The intention of
this scheme is not to prosecute offenders but to raise awareness of the
impact of speeding in specific areas identified by the community who

Llangunnor community and will be looking for volunteers to take part to

Vandals Attack Park Hut....
Community Council are very disappointed with the recent damage being
done to the hut in the park; it has been there for many years and has
been a meeting point for a generation of children. The Council plan to
monitor what happens at the hut over the next few months. It has
recently spent near to a £1000 carrying out repairs. If the damage
continues it may be forced to consider its demolition! This is not what
the Council want but it may not have any other option. It is up to its
users to now decide its future!
A note from Mr Aled Davies, headmaster of Llangunnor School...
Neighbours of Llangunnor School,
At times during the school day the
traffic near Llangunnor School is very heavy due to the number of families
bringing their children to our school and collecting them in the afternoon. I
appreciate that this may cause difficulties for everybody driving past the
the cooperation of our Parents, the Police and the Community Council, in an
effort to ease the situation, we are promoting a VOLUNTARY one way system with
the traffic travelling from the Babell Chapel end and towards Pobl Bach
Nursery. This system is implemented during school term time only between 8:30
and 9:30 in the morning and then between 2:30 and 3:30 in the afternoon. Please
see the diagram below.
kindly ask for your cooperation by supporting our campaign.
Thank you very much.
