Welcome to the website of Maesycwmmer Community Council, we hope you find it informative and of interest.
Maesycwmmer is a village and community in the centre of Caerphilly County Borough Council in Wales.
The village is located 5 miles north of Caerphilly on the east bank of the Rhymney River.
The river is spanned by the Maesycwmmer to Hengoed viaduct which dates from 1853 and which carried the Taff Vale Extension of the Newport, Abergavenny and Hereford railway. The viaduct was re-opened for public pedestrian access in 2000.
The village features the ’ Wheel O Drams’ sculpture by Andy Hazell, an unusual piece of modern art formed from a circle of coal mining dram trucks.
The council consists of elected 8 Community Councillors. The council meets monthly at the OAP Hall, The Crescent, Maesycwmmer generally on the last Thursday in the month. Members of the public are able to attend the meetings on an observation only basis. The current council was elected in May 2017.
The Community Council is responsible for running the Summer Playscheme in the village, the Christmas lighting and the Remembrance Service. It also works closely with other organisations in the village and the Primary School to organise other village events such as the lantern parade and Christmas carol concert.
