Published

on

AS part of its annual campaign to reduce crime levels within the county, the Ceredigion Community Safety Partnership is inviting residents to attend a public meeting of the Full Partnership and Strategy Group.

The meeting will be held on Thursday 15 November, 2018 at 2pm in the Council Chamber, Penmorfa, Aberaeron. It will provide the public with a progress review of Community Safety in Ceredigion. The review will cover topics including Local Crime Reduction Targets and progress in relation to recommendations outlined in the 2018/19 Strategic Assessment.

In addition, the group maintains a strategic overview on matters affecting community safety within Ceredigion and monitors the performance and delivery of interventions. It also gives guidance and direction when responding to issues that are giving, or have given, concern.

Sue Darnbrook, Corporate Director at Ceredigion County Council and Chair of the Ceredigion Community Safety Partnership stated, “These meetings are an excellent opportunity for residents to gain a full appreciation of the true picture of crime and disorder within the county. The Ceredigion Community Safety Partnership are proud of their achievements to date in terms of reducing crime and disorder, but are not complacent. They continue to carefully monitor progress, trends and developments to not only maintain but, wherever possible, to improve community safety within the county.”

Topics discussed at the meeting will also assist the group to put forward local priorities in connection with the Police and Crime Plan.

The Full Partnership and Strategy Group is made up of the following organisations: Ceredigion County Council, Dyfed Powys Police, Hywel Dda University Health Board, Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service and the Community Rehabilitation Company and Dyfed Powys Area Planning Board for Substance Misuse.

All are very welcome to attend. For more information, call 01545 570 881.

Ysgol Bro Pedr raise funds for life saving machine

Published

PUPILS at Ysgol Bro Pedr have raised enough money to buy a defibrillator machine for the school.

The idea came after 15 Year 11 pupils achieved their Level 3 Emergency First Aid Qualification with Ceredigion Youth Service. Pupils felt that it was incredibly important that they and others at the school had the skills, knowledge and equipment to use in an emergency.

Mrs Caryl Jones and pupils raised an outstanding £1,150 through organising a bake sale at the school on 28 March 2019. The school extends their thanks to Lampeter businesses ‘Oh My Cod’ and ‘Y Becws’ for their kind contribution towards the sale.

Guto Crompton, School Based Youth Worker said: “Although first aid is not a mandatory part of the school curriculum in Wales, young people at Ysgol Bro Pedr felt that it should be something that all pupils knew about. This would help them to know what to do in an emergency, whether that be in the school or out in the community. Pupils worked hard to achieve their First Aid qualification which covered aspect such as CPR, casualty management and the use of a defibrillator.”

The defibrillator machine will be placed in the school reception.
