Join us to celebrate the achievements of organisations and individuals in the Aber Valley
The Presentation of Community Recognition Awards
In the Aber Valley there are those that help their neighbours, support local groups and regularly go out of their way for others in the community. The Community Recognition Awards give us a chance to celebrate community spirit, recognise achievement and acknowledge commitment and contribution to the Aber Valley
The Presentation of Financial Assistance Awards
Aber Valley Community Council considers applications for financial assistance at the January and July Community Council meetings from individual organisations on the basis that the grant is of benefit to the community
Volunteering in the Aber Valley
This year, in order to encourage volunteering in the Aber Valley, we have asked various organisations to promote their achievements and opportunities
Everyone welcome - light refreshments will be provided
The council is reminding residents it is their responsibility to ensure their wsate is disposed of correctly.
Recently, a number of individuals have faced prosecution, after paying unlicensed disposal companies to dispose of waste - which subsequently hadn't been disposed of corrrectly, with it often being fly-tipped. Offenders of fly-tipping can face fines of uo to £50,000 and/or imprisonment.
Residents are also being warned against dumping waste outside recycling centres on the days they are closed as such incidents will be treated as instances of fly-tipping and investigated in the same way.
Each recycling centre is closed one day a week:
Recycling centres are open 9am to 5.30pm between 1st April and 30th September and 9am to 4.30pm between 1st October and 31st March. Centres are open as normal on bank holidays but closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
The coucnil also offers a bulky item collection for large household goods such as furniture, radiators and building waste. Residents can also contact The Furniture Revival on 01685 846830 to arrange for the safe and legal disposal of a fridge freezer.
Every year in December Aber Valley Community Council holds a Christmas Competition. A guest judge will choose the best decorated property in Senghenydd and the best decorated property in Abertridwr. The winners will then be invited to the Community Council meeting in January to receive their prize – good luck and Merry Christmas!
The Community Council held its annual presentation evening on Thursday 17th September 2015.
Recipients of the community recognition awards were John Turton and Emma Ives for Abertridwr and Brian Marshall and Nikki Pitten for Senghenydd.
The community recognition awards give us an opportunity to celebrate community spirit, recognise achievement and acknowledge commitment and contribution to the Aber valley. So if you know a person that fits the bill, we would encourage you to submit a nomination form next year.
