Hello everybody and welcome to our first newsletter!
Firstly apologies for the delay between our first event in May and the feedback, we wanted to wait for our meeting with the Council and a very kind offer for Welsh translation before we went public with it.
It’s been a busy few weeks for us too, thinking how we translate what we gathered in to movement forward.
We have our next event pegged as a Picnic in the Party in late August, with the intention to use the Community space in the Hall once again, but bringing the activities outside to the Park for lunch and a tidy up. We’ll be actively looking for people who’s like to donate a cake, take part in the tidy up, play some music or bascially if you’d like to lend us your skills for a few hours that would be fantistic! The event will hopefully start a spark of interest for people interested in both the Hall and the Park and help gain momentum in pushing development in both these areas.
We’ll report back next week on the outcome of our first meeting with the Community Council and give more information about where we see our venture going. The main thrust for now is our intention to help the Council move towards a more proactive and stable Management Committee for the hall to help it grow and develop in to a real hub for Gilwern and the surrounding areas.
Please do contact us with any questions and thanks for showing such in interest in our little project so far!
