Dutch Cyclists 

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of Welsh soldiers liberating s’Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands, 26 Dutch city employees cycled into Caerffili last Saturday as part of their 400 mile tour of Wales. They were welcomed to lunch at the Visitor Centre in Caerffili by Town Mayor Mike Prew. Thanks are due to Visitor Centre Staff and Martin Cook as well as Y Galeri owners Jan and Gareth Pennell. The cyclists returned to the Netherlands and were televised on Dutch TV with a parade of children through the streets of s’Hertogenbosch. There will be major commemorations in s’Hertogenbosch in October this year.

Town Council Invites Ideas

The Town Council has established a Working Group to discuss ideas for spending the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) received from Caerphilly County Borough Council.  The Town Council receives 15% of the CIL receipts from CIL liable development within the Town Council area.

The CIL fund now stands at £18,500.  There are a number of ideas under consideration ranging from a memorial artwork to Evan James who wrote the words to the Welsh National Anthem, to electric car charging points, free wifi in the town centre and a living Christmas Tree.

Whatever projects are eventually decided they must have a lasting impact for both residents and visitors and be value for money.

If residents wish to make any suggestions these can be sent to the Town Clerk.
