Abergele Conservation Trust Unveils 'Abergele in Bloom' Initiative for 2024

Abergele Conservation Trust is thrilled to announce the launch of its exciting new project, 'Abergele in Bloom,' aimed at enhancing the beauty of our lovely town.

As we look ahead to 2024, we are setting our sights on the prestigious 'It's Your Neighbourhood' award. Abergele in Bloom is a community-driven initiative dedicated to promoting environmental stewardship, community engagement, and a grassroots garden revolution for Abergele.

Inspired by the success story of Pensarn in Bloom, we want to work with our town gardens to achieve this award. Our 2024 goal is clear - we aspire to earn the 'It's Your Neighbourhood' recognition, a prestigious award recognising communities that have made remarkable strides in environmental conservation and community involvement.

Abergele Conservation Trust believes that, together with the support of our community, we can achieve this prestigious honour for the town. Our focus will be on creating vibrant floral displays, conserving natural habitats, and promoting sustainable gardening practices. "We are thrilled to introduce 'Abergele in Bloom' and embark on this journey towards 'It's Your Neighbourhood' recognition," said Cllr Pauline Heap-Williams, trustee of Abergele Conservation Trust. "We invite all Abergele residents to join us in this endeavour, as we work hand in hand to make our town even more beautiful and environmentally responsible."

As we move forward, Abergele Conservation Trust welcomes volunteers, local businesses, and organisations to participate and support our 'Abergele in Bloom' initiative. Together, we can make 2024 a year to remember, filled with blooming gardens, sustainable practices, and a thriving sense of community spirit.

For more information on how you can get involved with 'Abergele in Bloom,' please email abergeleconservationtrust@gmail.com

A Double First for Community of Abergele

Following the recent Annual General Meeting of Abergele Town Council, a special presentation evening was arranged to award two long standing community stalwarts and former Councillors, Richard Waters and Brian Roberts ‘The Freedom of the Town of Abergele’. This is the first time this prestigious honour has been bestowed on anyone in the town.

The honour was granted by Abergele Town Council in recognition of the outstanding work in the community given by both Mr Waters and Mr Roberts and presented to them by the Mayor of Abergele, Cllr Alan Hunter.

Mr Waters has served the Abergele community for 49 years and was regarded as the ‘Father of the Council’ due to his wealth of knowledge of Council procedures. His dedicated work at Town and County Council has always had the residents at the forefront of any decisions or proposals he made.

Mr Roberts was first elected to the Town Council in 1991 representing the Pentre Mawr Ward and was instrumental in the purchasing of the current Town Hall. A Town Mayor on three occasions (1994, 2005 and 2014) during which time he was invited to and attended in excess of 400 events; one of the highlights was attending the Queen’s Annual Garden Party in 2005.

Both Mr Waters and Mr Roberts have served many years representing Abergele Town Council on the North and Mid Wales Association of Larger Town Councils; Mr Roberts elected as Chair on three occasions. They have sat on very many Committees and Outside Bodies of the Town Council and both have served very many years on the Governing Bodies of Abergele Primary Schools.

Long Service Awards were also presented to two former Councillors, Delyth MacRae and Sam Rowlands who served 18 and 14 years respectively. Mr Rowlands left his role on the Council recently after being elected AM for North Wales in 2021.

The Well-being Assessment helps us to understand the current situation as well as ensure we plan for the future. It has been informed by engagement with our residents and stakeholders and also uses other information such as data, evidence and research.

As part of the Boards next steps, the PSB want to hear organisations and people’s thoughts on the issues and opportunities identified in the assessment. To share your views, please read the draft Well-being Assessment on the PSB website and complete the online survey.

COVID-19 ‘survive’ and ‘thrive’ grants now open

Voluntary organisations can now apply for pandemic funding through a new phase of the Third sector resilience fund for Wales.

The Third sector resilience fund (TSRF) has provided unique support to 235 voluntary organisations in Wales since April 2020. However, charities and other voluntary groups are facing existing and new challenges as they deal with the ongoing effects of COVID-19.

Now open for applications, phase 3 of TSRF offers grant funding to help voluntary organisations with the costs of surviving the COVID-19 pandemic. Grants can also be used to invest in new or additional activity which will generate a return beyond the period of funding.


Phase 3 of TSRF is part of the £2.4m of support announced by Welsh Government. Grants of up to £50,000 are available through WCVA’s Social Investment Cymru team. If the activity requires funding beyond that, there is the opportunity to apply for a loan from Social Investment Cymru if needed.

To enable a fair and just recovery in Wales, the new phase of TSRF is prioritising organisations that support people with protected characteristics, and those that have not previously received TSRF funding.

Applications are open to any eligible voluntary organisation in Wales, and there is support available to help organisations make sure they are eligible for the fund.


The fund is split into two strands:


Acknowledging that for some the impact of COVID-19 was late to take effect or become fully apparent, this strand is designed to combat any unprecedented fall in fundraising and donation income.

The fund is not about replacing the lost income – it is about providing sufficient funds to cover essential expenditure not covered by any residual income or by other supportive interventions. ‘The funding of last resort’.


Funding will also be allocated to organisations that are looking towards their future, for example to diversify their income streams or to invest in the organisation to allow growth and expansion.

The requirements will be largely the same as the ‘survive’ strand but will be supported by a plan and a cashflow forecast for the new activity.


To find out more about the fund, your eligibility and how to apply please visit wcva.cymru/tsrf.


Funding for Local Projects in Wales that Connect Communities with Heritage

A national programme is inviting applications.

Funding is available to heritage and community organisations for small-scale capital projects in Wales that will encourage engagement with local heritage.

The funding is for projects based and taking place in Wales and which can be delivered by 31 December 2022.

Examples of supported activities include:

· Small-scale physical works such as the erection of plaques or interpretive panels.

· Creation of walking trails, murals or pop-up window displays.

· Development of digital resources, for example interactive maps, videos, exhibitions and podcasts.

· Innovative ways of identifying and celebrating local heritage through the arts, music, storytelling, crafting projects or outdoor activities such as cycling and walking.

Applications will be accepted from the following:

· Not-for-profit organisations, including those already involved in the promotion of heritage at a community level, and projects led by public sector organisations.

· Museums and other indoor venues or attractions with projects that explore the heritage outside their doors.

· Community groups that are not heritage-based but wish to explore and interpret their local heritage by taking a closer look at what is on their doorsteps.

· Organisations in Wales (including not-for-profit) who care for historic buildings, sites and attractions that open their doors to visitors more than 28 days a year, such as historic places of worship.

· Private owners of heritage.

Grants of £3,000 to £10,000 are available.

The deadline for applications is noon on 4 October 2021.

Testing the Safety of 5G

Courier fraud Jan 2021 1


Arbed am Byth have been appointed by the Welsh Government to arrange the installation of energy efficiency measures, like central heating or insulation in homes across Wales as part of the Welsh Government Warm Homes scheme.
The aim of the scheme is to install appropriate energy efficiency measures in properties across Wales, to help people who are struggling to effectively heat their home.
Please click on the link below to find out more:http://www.arbedambyth.wales/eng/home.html



DC Gareth Jordan from Dyfed Powys Police states that they have become aware of fake Royal Mail notifications being sent out via email…

The scam involves an email which claims Royal Mail has tried to deliver a parcel - and then asks you to pay £1.99 to arrange redelivery.
The style of the email and the low fee makes the scam appear legitimate. It may look similar to the below – (they do differ)

The email directs you to an official-looking page where you will be asked to give away your bank details.

DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK. Forward the email to report@phishing.gov.uk

(this reporting service is run by the National Cyber Security Centre and aims to take down fake websites)


  • Anybody who receives an email claiming to be from the Royal Mail must remember that they will never be asked to pay a redelivery fee.
  • Never input your bank or card information after following a link on any emails that claims it is from the Royal Mail, because it will result in your card details being stolen by criminals.
  • If you have reason to believe that you may have been tricked, it is essential that you contact your bank and cancel your card at once, additionally check your statements for any signs of unauthorised transactions.
  • If you have been the victim of a payment scam, report it to your local police.


Warning – Fake phone calls to residents pretending to be from the Police!

· We have been notified by Dyfed Powys Police that criminals pretending to be Police officers are calling residents and trying to carry out what is known as ‘Courier Fraud’… this could be happening in the rest of Wales too

· They phone you to tell you about fraudulent activity on your bank card, but then start asking you for personal information or even your PIN to verify who you are.

· They may try to offer you peace of mind by having someone pick up your bank card from you to save you the trouble of having to go to your bank or local police station (Courier).

  • These callers are criminals who will try gain your trust by making you think they are police officers.
  • Do not engage in conversation with them.
  • Do not allow them to arrange collection of bank cards.
  • Put the phone down.
  • Block the number they called from.
  • Tell your friends and neighbours about this scam
  • Report it to your local police force by contacting them via their online webpage or 101

VJ Day - 75th Anniversary Commemoration

The Mayor Cllr. Shirley Jones-Roberts will lay a wreath at the Cenotaph at St. Michael’s Parish Church tomorrow 15th August to commemorate the end of the war against Japan 75 years ago. A wreath will be laid at St. George by the Deputy Mayor.

There are still families in our community whose parents/grandparents fought in this terrible conflict and we must never forget what these brave people suffered and endured.

The Instrument of Surrender was signed on September 2nd. 1945, on the American battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay.

National Eisteddfod Bardic Chair

In July of this year, the 1899 National Eisteddfod Bardic Chair returned to it’s home town of Abergele, was offered to and gratefully received by Abergele Town Council.

The Council was contacted by a lady in South Wales, Mrs. Kita Williams, who offered the chair to the safe custody of the Council and will now proudly stand in the Council Chamber at the Town Hall.

Now 121 years old, the chair was designed and made by a local man, John Richard Ellis JP, a carpenter and author of the famous local book ‘A History of Abergele and District’.

The chair was apparently never awarded as a prize at the National Eisteddfod in South Wales in 1899 but awarded at another related competition within the Eisteddfod circle.

The chair then disappeared and little is known about it for about 80 years until it was found on a skip of rubble from a recently demolished YMCA Hostel at St. Athan in South Wales by Mrs Kita Williams. The family cherished and looked after this piece of history for 40 years. The chair was used as a piece of furniture and followed the family from house to house and even to a public house as the family moved around Wales and the South of England with work. 40 years later It was back in Newport and still with Kita, the chair was offered to Abergele Town Council and has been gratefully accepted.

Cllr. Andrew Wood, Abergele Town Council was able to collect the chair during a business trip.

A fitting end to the journey of this chair is that the creator of the chair, JR Ellis had lived at Berthtopic, Rhuddlan Road, Abergele, many years later Cllr. Wood’s family owned the same property.

It would be nice to know where the chair was for the missing 80 years of it’s journey until it was found. If anyone can help fill in the missing time line, please contact the Town Hall 01745 833242.

The picture shows The Mayor, Cllr. Shirley Jones-Roberts receiving the Bardic Chair on behalf of Abergele Town Council with Cllr. Andrew Wood who kindly retrieved the chair.

During the last few weeks there have been an incredible amount of volunteers who have taken it upon themselves to pick up litter around our town, our parks and along the promenade at Pensarn. I'm sure my fellow Councillors would like to join me in thanking them all for their efforts in helping to keep our town and community tidy. It's wonderful to know these residents take so much pride in our town.
Please remember to keep safe while doing this and thank you once again.

75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe Day

Over the weekend the community of Abergele was decorated with pockets of bunting at various parts of the town and Town Hall. Whilst all of the many celebrations organised had to be cancelled, residents carefully celebrated the occasion in the safety of their homes and gardens. The Mayor invited residents to send in their VE Day photos celebrating the event from their gardens and primary school children were invited to colour VE Day posters. Prizes were awarded to the winners.

Whilst observing social distancing, a short film was made at the Cenotaph in St Michael’s Church Abergele, of The Mayor Cllr. Shirley Jones-Roberts laying a wreath. The Rev. Kate Johnson gave a short, moving service and Mr Carl Bishop attended representing the RBL as Standard Bearer. A wreath had also been laid by the RBL.

The Mayor also went to pay her respects at the War Memorial at St. George.
