We were delighted to see Radyr Cricket Club's new covers (pictured above) which were purchased with part-funding in the form of a grant from the Community Council.
The covers look very professional - and we hope that they will help the club to victory during the forthcoming season!
We also helped the club with an earlier grant (of £13,000) towards the cost of extending their clubhouse.
And don't forget that you can watch this season's cricket matches. Take a picnic - and enjoy the refreshments on offer at the club bar!
The fixture list can be seen here.
Radyr and Morganstown Community Council is delighted to announce that it has appointed a new Vice Chair, to work alongside Huw Jones, who will continue as Chair for another year.
During last Thursday’s Annual Meeting Cllr Vina Patel was unanimously elected to the post.
Vina has been a Radyr resident for 20 years and, prior to joining the council in 2019, worked with her neighbours to develop a number of activities aimed at bringing people together and strengthening the community.
She is also the Council’s representative on Radyr and Morganstown’s proposed new Good Neighbour’s Scheme, soon to be a registered charity, which will provide a wide range of services for our more vulnerable residents.
Vina is interested in community development, including engaging with those who may feel excluded in our community - and has experience of developing creative consultation processes with many communities in diverse settings.
‘I’m delighted to welcome Vina as our Vice Chair’ said Huw Jones ‘She will bring a fresh perspective to our work. Like me, she is keen to ensure that Radyr and Morganstown remains a great place to live - and together we can help lead the Council as it develops its work. I have been very impressed by her contribution as a relatively new member of the Council, and I look forward to working with her’.
Cllr Patel has been the Social and Corporate Governance Advisor for Social Firms Wales since 2012. With a background in Community Development, working with a wide range of community groups, charities and social enterprises across Wales and abroad.
We have received the following information from Cardiff Council:
A section of Heol Isaf will be closed for resurfacing on Sunday, 16 May, for the duration of that day. We attach a map showing the area involved. There will be a complete closure to traffic.
As with all the historical works that we have undertaken on Heol Isaf, for safety reasons and as agreed with Network Management, the road will be closed to through traffic, which is the reason we are limited to Sunday working as the road is so busy at all other times. Night works are not acceptable due to the noise.
We will permit residents living adjacent to the work area to drive in or out to their properties when it is safe to do so and at their own risk, though they may have some delays.
Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times and emergency vehicles will be always granted access if required.
Did you know that Radyr and Morganstown has a Millennium Mosaic?
This amazing art installation was created for us by the artist, Oliver Budd, who has created mosaics for many other clients in the public and private sectors - as well as churches and private clients.
Our mosaic was created to mark the new millennium - and was designed to reflect Radyr and Morganstown's history, community and environment.
You can read below a detailed description of the mosaic - including the significance of its different sections. It's a fascinating read!
if you want to see the mosaic, it can be viewed in the Garth Room at the Old Church Rooms - as soon as Covid restrictions are relaxed.
