AS part of Youth Work Week 2018 celebrations, Ceredigion Youth Service (CYS) hosted an open evening at Cardigan Youth Centre.

Cardigan Youth Centre opened its doors to families, partners and local residents on Wednesday, June 27. The open evening was an opportunity to take a look around the centre, meet the youth workers and enjoy some light refreshments, kindly provided by Crwst, The Queens Bakery and Cardigan Aldi.

Councillor Catrin Miles, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Learning Services said, “Cardigan Youth Centre plays a vital role in providing opportunities for children and young people locally, therefore it was wonderful to have the opportunity to look around the Youth Centre and to be a part of Ceredigion’s Youth Work Week celebrations. The garden area at the centre has recently received a new lease of life through funding received from the North and Mid Wales Reaching Wider Partnership, providing opportunities for young people to create a new picnic bench and some colourful art boards. It was nice to see that the centre boasts a space for the whole community to enjoy.”

Met Office issue yellow weather warning for Friday morning

Published

on

THE MET OFFICE has warned of strong winds and heavy rain across South and West Wales as they have issued a yellow weather warning for rain on Friday (Dec 7).

Between 1am and 9am, spells of rain, heavy at times and accompanied by windy weather, are likely to produce 20-40mm of rain.

Coming after some recent wet weather, this rain is likely to lead to some temporary flooding impacts before the rain clears early Friday morning.

The Met Office are warning people that flooding of a few homes and business is likely, bus and train services, as well as roads, will probably be affected, with journey times taking longer.

Natural Resources Wales also has a flood alert in place in Pembrokeshire. Due to restrictions at the tidal outfall, river levels in the River Ritec in the Salterns area of Tenby are likely to remain high for a number of days.

River levels are rising slightly as each high tide arrives. The combination of ground conditions, existing river levels and forecast rainfall quantities gives a high risk of flooding of low-lying land during the next couple of days.

This comes a week after Yellow Weather Warnings were issued across Wales as Storm Diana brought extreme winds and heavy rain to the country.
