TREGARON TOWN COUNCIL and Ceredigion County Council have teamed up to enhance the town’s street scene as part of a Caru Tregaron project.
The Town Council have recently employed a person to undertake street cleaning and associated activities which supports and complements the work undertaken by the County Council. The County Council are providing some equipment, consumables and training, as well as making arrangements for the collection and disposal of waste materials collected, as part of this pilot project.
Councillor David Bennett, the Chairman of the Town Council, commented, “We are very pleased to be working with the County Council on this Caru Tregaron project as it demonstrates that working in a meaningful partnership we can achieve much more than we would individually”.
Ceredigion County Councillor for Tregaron, Councillor Catherine Hughes, said: “The people of Tregaron are especially and rightly proud of their town. It is hoped that through this project and having a greater and more visible local involvement will help further promote positive behaviours in terms of dealing with waste responsibly and keeping the town looking at its very best.”
The Caru Tregaron project is being developed as part of the wider Caru Ceredigion. Caru Ceredigion encourages local communities to get proactively and positively involved in issues and concerns which are important to them.
Councillor Ray Quant, Ceredigion County Council’s Cabinet Member for Technical Services, commented: “We are very fortunate in Ceredigion that most people who live and visit the County value and respect the local environment. As a result the prevalence of enviro-crimes such as littering and fly tipping is relatively low.
“However, we are not resting on our laurels, to maintain and develop on this, the County Council is very eager to work with partners and develop relationships which are mutually beneficial such as the one we’re embarking on in Tregaron with the Town Council.”
Any other Town or Community Council, organisations or individuals who would like to similarly get involved in a Caru Ceredigion project, please contact the County Council’s Technical Services on 01545 572 572 or e-mail Technical.Services@ceredigion.gov.uk

Penrhyn-coch Brownies compose song
PENRHYN-COCH Brownies were congratulated for composing a new Welsh language song recently. The workshops were part of a program of Welsh language workshops organised by Cered – Menter Iaith Ceredigion.
Following a series of workshops with the young singer, Mari Mathias from Talgarreg, the girls decided to compose a song. ‘Yn yr Haf’ was recorded with the girls singing and Mari on the guitar. All the group members received a copy of the song on CD.
Rhodri Francis, Cered’s Development Officer said: “It has been a pleasure to work with the group and we congratulate members on their masterpiece. Thanks also to the leaders for their enthusiasm in securing opportunities for the members to socialise in Welsh outside of school hours.”
Cered’s main aim is to support, influence and develop the use of the Welsh language in Ceredigion through partnership and co-operation, to establish the best possible foundation for the development of the language in the society and community.
Wendy Reynolds, leader of the Brownies unit in Penrhyn-coch said: “The experience has been amazing for the girls and they’ve had a lot of fun doing activities through the medium of Welsh.”

Theatre caravan coming to Aberystwyth
THE SMALLEST cinema in a theatre caravan will be on the Promenade in Aberystwyth for three Saturdays this summer.
Staff from Ceredigion Museum, together with the Friends of Ceredigion Museum, will be hosting a series of free entertaining events in and around the theatre caravan on July 28, August 4, and August 11 between 12pm and 4pm.
Sarah Morton, the Events Organiser for Ceredigion Museum said, “We have a series of short local films from the National Film and Screen Archive which links to our summer exhibition relating to the seaside at the museum, in the old Coliseum Theatre. The two minute films show people on the beach and promenade in Aberystwyth as well as Y Borth. We will also have singing from the Showtime Singers to add to the entertainment.
“We will be situated in and near the bandstand and hope to be able to bring some of the traditions of a typical coastal break back to life.”
Besides the theatre caravan, there will be a Guess-the-Object held in the bandstand with museum staff to aid in identifying the mystery objects.
For more details about the caravan and the entertainment, contact Sarah Morton at Ceredigion Museum on 01970 633088
