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.
Some residents are concerned about off-road motorcyclists accessing areas such as the Mound Field where their presence can present a danger to others whilst also damaging the field itself.
Anyone concerned about this, or any other anti-social behaviour, can report it via 101 (the non-emergency number for the police) or 999.
Alternatively, South Wales Police has updated its website to make it easier to report crime and anti-social behaviour. The website can be found here.
It's hard to believe that anyone would ride their motorcycle on the Mound Field knowing that any passers-by can easily record their behaviour using a mobile phone camera. There's nowt as queer as folk, as they say.
Residents living close to the proposed Transport for Wales works compounds in Morganstown may be relieved to hear that the compound to be used to facilitate electrification of the Valleys Lines will be reduced in size - to the extent that hardly any of the Mound Field playing field will be required. TfW still proposes to build a 'haul road' alongside Pugh's, through the Mound Field car park and along the eastern edge of the field, to provide access to both the compounds.
The main reason for this change is the closure of the Rhys Dafis freight site at Taffs Well. TfW has secured agreement to operate from that site - so will be able to move some of their activity from Morganstown to Taffs Well.
Even so, they still propose to work from Morganstown - with the reduced-size compound - and a separate compound to enable a new bridge to be built over the railway line. We have, of course, opposed the bridge whilst suggesting that access to Gelynis Farm should be via Iron Bridge Road.
