YM MIS Mawrth, buom yn ardal Cwm Cuch gyda Howard Williams i’n harwain. Gan gychwyn wrth dafarn y Nag’s Head, aethom ar daith gylch ar hen stad Clynfyw. Roedd Howard wedi paratoi taflen o nodiadau am nodweddion diddorol y daith i bawb, a chawsom fwynhau llwybr y Cerfluniau, eirlysiau wrth y miloedd, golygfa dda i lawr ar Afon Cych a’r Cwm, a chlywed am gysylltiadau â’r Mabinogi, hanes y stad a’r hen ardd furiedig. Aeth llawer ohonom i gael croeso a lluniaeth yn Nhafarn y Nag’s Head ar ôl cerdded. Taith hyfryd eto, ac roedd yn dda gweld rhai cerddwyr newydd yn ymuno â ni. Fis Ebrill 9fed, bydd Reg Davies yn arwain taith yn ardal Dinas ac Aber-bach.
Cychwynnwn o Faes Parcio Capel Tabor, Dinas (SN005 384 Cod post: SA42 0XG). O gyfeiriad Aberteifi, trowch i’r dde gyferbyn â lloches byses ar ôl mynd heibio’r troad i Bwllgwaelod). Dewch mewn da bryd i ddechrau ar y daith am 10:30, os gwelwch yn dda. Awn ar daith gylch ddwy awr, tua 2.5 milltir, ar lwybrau i fferm Tre-wrach, lawr lôn dawel a llwybr da i draeth Aber-bach ac yn ôl ar y lôn i ddychwelyd i’r Capel. Bydd un llecyn a all fod yn fwdlyd, dwy sticil, ac esgyniad o ryw 400 troedfedd, y rhan fwyaf ohono ar y ffordd yn ôl i’r Capel, sy’n eithaf serth ar y dechrau. Gallwn ddisgwyl daith brydferth, hanesyddol gydag ymweliad â pherl o draethell anghysbell.
Ac wedyn bydd cyfle i gael lluniaeth yn nhafarndai Trefdraeth a Dinas a hefyd yng nghaffi Flas Fronlas, Trefdraeth. Ym mis Mai, 14eg, cerddwn yn ardal Cwm Soden a Chastell Bach, ger Cwm Tydu, gan adael man parcio Eglwys Llandysiliogogo (SN363 572) (Cod post SA44 6LH), am 10.30yb. Howard Williams fydd yr arweinydd eto. Mae’r man parcio ryw 200 metr yn brin o Eglwys St Tysilio. O’r A487 rhwng Plwmp a Synod trowch i Gaerwedros, mynd trwy’r pentref a syth ymlaen, ar draws yr heol rhwng Llwyndafydd a Nanternis, tuag at Gwmtydu; ar ôl rhyw filltir trowch i’r dde tuag at yr eglwys.
Nid oes lle i fwy na rhyw 15 car ar y tir pwrpasol ond gallwn barcio’n ofalus hefyd ar y borfa ar hyd yr heolydd o bobtu’r gyffordd. Er hynny, fe fydd yn syniad da dod â chyn lleied o geir ag y bo modd, er enghraifft drwy gwrdd â gyrwyr eraill yng Nghwmtydu a rhannu ceir wrth fynd ymlaen. Dewch mewn da bryd i ddechrau fel arfer ar y daith am 10:30, os gwelwch yn dda. Awn ar daith gylch ddwy awr tua dwy filltir ar lwybrau da; dros gaeau i’r penrhyn i’r gogledd o Gwmtydu, ar lwybr yr arfordir i lawr i Draeth Cwm Soden (serth mewn mannau) ac wedyn lan y Cwm a’i lethr ddeheuol i’r Eglwys.
Bydd esgyniad o ryw 350 troedfedd, yn bennaf wrth ddringo’r llwybr serth gyda llawer o risiau ar y diwedd i gyrraedd yr eglwys. Wrth gerdded, cawn weld golygfeydd gwych o’r arfordir, blodau ar eu gorau, Castell Bach, caer amlwg o’r Oes Haearn, cwm prydferth, rhaeadrau annisgwyl, ac eglwys mewn llecyn hyfryd. Ac wedyn bydd cyfle i gael lluniaeth yn y Crown yn Llwyndafydd neu yn y Caffi yng Nghwmtydu. Fis Mehefin 11eg, cerddwn yn ardal Cilgerran a Llechryd gydag Emyr Phillips yn arwain, a hon fydd ein taith olaf y tymor hwn. Bydd croeso cynnes i bawb ar bob taith.

Update for Multi-purpose Community Centres following First Minister announcement
TODAY, First Minister Mark Drakeford announced that multi-purpose community centres including community centres, village halls, church halls and other community facilities can reopen from 03 May. This decision has been brought forward from 17 May.
Welsh Government announced changes during today’s briefing, and the guidance for multi-purpose community venues is being updated to ensure compliance with developments in regulations, including greater emphasis on ventilation. Welsh Government continue to advise authorities that the regulations on social gathering will still prevent a number of activities from taking place at community venues, and only organised activities for up to 15 people will be permitted.
The panel strongly advise you to make every effort to carry out your activity digitally or make contact by phone. If not, consider whether it is possible to hold your activity outdoors, in-line with Welsh Government guidance. Holding your activity indoors should be considered as a last resort. If this is the only option and it’s essential that you meet then please keep the session brief and involve as few people as possible, with all necessary procedures and protocols in place.
Those responsible for community activities should remember to;
- maintain a social distance of 2 meters.
- wear a face covering in indoor public spaces.
- regularly wash your hands for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer provided.
A multi-agency panel has been set up to advise and support around the safe and proportionate reopening of facilities in-line with national guidance. The panel has been created under Ceredigion’s Public Services Board Sub Group; Understanding our Communities. Leading on the development of the group is Ceredigion Association of Voluntary Organisations (CAVO) and Ceredigion County Council in partnership with Heddlu Dyfed Powys Police and Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service. The panel includes representation from Health & Safety, Environmental Health and Community Safety.
The panel encourages anyone responsible for community facilities to seek advice to ensure that arrangements are safe and secure and that compliance is in-line with national guidance. Prior to re-opening any community facility those managing centres must ensure that they are ‘Covid-Free Zones’.
The panel will aim to host another briefing session on April 28 at 13:30 to support those in charge of community venues with the latest developments. If you would like to join the next briefing session, please register here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/cyfleusterau-cymunedol-ceredigion-community-facilities-information-session-tickets-152071456821?aff=ebdssbonlinesearch or get in touch via the contact details below.
The multi-agency panel will continue to support and advise Community Groups and Organisations, and questions or information requests can be submitted to the group which meets on a weekly basis via CAVO on email@example.com or by phone on 01570 423232.
Together, we can keep Ceredigion safe.
Ceredigion Museum’s digital storytelling celebrates LGBTQ+ history month
February marks LGBTQ+ History month and Ceredigion Museum has been working with local organisation Aberration to unveil and record fascinating and untold stories of Aberystwyth.
These stories form part of the museum’s ‘It Happened in Aber’ project, which will allow people to listen to the untold stories that have shaped Aberystwyth.
This project was made possible thanks to the ’15-minute heritage’ funding, a partnership between The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Cadw, the Welsh Government’s historic environment service.
Carrie Canham, museum curator, said: “For too long the LGBTQ+ community has been marginalised, or even completely concealed, in history. Ceredigion Museum is keen to share the stories that have lurked in the shadows, to celebrate the diversity and rich LGBTQ+ heritage of Aberystwyth with pride.”
The LGBTQ+ stories researched and recorded with by Jane Hoy, of Aberration, include historic and modern-day characters from the town, including famous academics, poets, mariners, dancers and a spy!
“We are delighted to be working so closely with Ceredigion Museum contributing to ‘queering up’ the museum with lively local stories and events,” Jane.
Aberystwyth has certainly played its part in developing the LGBTQ+ community in West Wales and Sarah and Rosie, founders of Aberystwyth’s ‘Wrecked’ nightclub for women, have documented their fond memories of their venue in the town: “It became a fun and safe haven for lesbians who travelled there from all corners of the county”.
Ceredigion Museum staff and volunteers will be continuing to document stories linked to the LGBTQ+ community, as well as stories linked to specific locations in the town, until April.
From May onwards, The ‘It Happened in Aber’ stories will be available to enjoy in podcast format on the museum’s website as well as forming a digital walking tour of the town, allowing people to listen and enjoy the stories whilst walking around the locations in Aberystwyth.
Councillor Catherine Hughes said: “It’s fantastic that Ceredigion Museum is providing us with an opportunity to enjoy the history and the important contribution of the LGBTQ+ community in Aberystwyth. This is such an important project to document our local heritage. We look forward to listening to all the stories.”
If you can’t wait until the summer, join this years’ virtual Aberration – Between the Lines event on Friday, February 26 from 7pm, when the ladies of ‘Wrecked’ will be sharing some of their stories!
For further information or to share your untold story, contact Sarah Morton, Ceredigion Museum’s sustainability officer, at Sarah.Morton@ceredigion.gov.uk.
Aberaeron takeaway closed for ignoring coronavirus restrictions
A Premises Closure Notice has been issued to Paradise Pizza, Regent Street, Aberaeron due to repeated non-compliance with the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (No.5) (Wales) Regulations 2020.
The business was issued with a premises improvement notice on 15th January 2021. It was required to take reasonable measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus, including the need to ensure that staff use personal protective equipment and face coverings. However, officers have since witnessed staff failing to wear face coverings on multiple occasions in contravention of their advice.
Monitoring inspections have shown that the majority of Ceredigion‘s retail premises are complying with the restrictions placed on them during the pandemic. Ceredigion County Council’s Public Protection team will continue to take action against businesses who fail to comply with the coronavirus restrictions. Whilst non-compliant businesses will usually receive advice and guidance, serious or persistent breaches will be dealt with by means of closure powers, fixed penalty notices or prosecution.
This takeaway must remain closed for 28 days, or until Public Protection officers are satisfied that the alleged non-compliance has been addressed.
Premises improvement and closure notices are required to be published by law.
The full closure notice can be found on Ceredigion County Council’s website, under Improvement and Closure Notices: http://www.ceredigion.gov.uk/resident/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-improvement-closure-and-direction-notices/
