Solva Community Council AGM

This year the AGM placed a distinct emphasis on children’s involvement. The first half of the session was given over to a consultation where local children were given the opportunity to voice their opinions on the proposals for both the upper and lower play parks. The main part of the AGM was given over to hearing reports on the community council’s various activities over the year, summarised by Chair, Josh Phillips. We also had a presentation from the Head of Ysgol Penrhyn Dewi who emphasised the importance of Solva school as part of the educational delivery for the north Pembrokeshire peninsula. School Numbers were projected to increase but some voluntary redundancies would be unavoidable because of tight budgets. Mark Carter, our County Councillor, undertook to chase up progress on the projected development of the football field. Ifor Thomas outlined the benefits of carrying out the project as a Community Land Trust, which would mean the community would own the housing in perpetuity and also gain income.
The meeting was enthusiastic in supporting this initiative. A long meeting concluded with light refreshments ably provided by Wendy Wright.
