White Vans


The following advice has been received from Cllr Rod Jones concerning the recent white van comments on Facebook:

“Hello, OK the two incidents are as follows, one white van was travellers looking for scrap metal, the second had parked using his mobile phone. There was no attempt to entice anyone into vehicles, no improper suggestions and no offences committed a case of rumour, rumour and more untrue rumour. The police have increased patrol for reassurance and nothing more. Would be grateful if you could put the wider record straight you can say the information has come from me if you wish (a retired police officer with contact lol) hope this helps Rob”

Thank you for this update Rob,

Desperate Times at the CHCA


From the end of May 2016 the CHCA Committee will be down to just 2 members. We therefore urgently need new members to fill the posts of Chair, Treasurer and MUGA Organiser when the current holders of these positions stand down.

At present one of the main functions of the CHCA is to fund and run the MUGA. This facility belongs to the Village and we are responsible for the, upkeep, leasing the land, electricity bills, insurance and for organising bookings. Funds are raised by MUGA bookings, Quiz Nights and the Christmas Parade. A bi-annual newsletter is also produced and is paid for by company adverts. However, unless new members can be found the next newsletter could be the last.

The CHCA meets most months at the Twelve Knights in Margam, so, if you would like to get involved please contact the Chairman at chairman@margam-village.org.uk



The CHCA has been informed of the following:

The NPTC Land Development Plan(LDP) has been adopted and can be viewed at

Of particular relevance to the community – The Cae Garw Gypsy site will have 11 extra pitches by 2017 and probably(certainty?) another 9 by 2026.

CHCA Committee

The Committee’s main undertakings in the Village at present are, organisation of the MUGA; holding the Christmas Parade; publishing a biannual newsletter; arranging an annual quiz evening; and from time to time running game stalls at any Village Green fund raising event. However, by the end of May 2016 the Committee membership will have been reduced to just three. We are, therefore, urgently in need of new volunteers from the Village residents to keep the CHCA alive. Being a member is not too arduous and will give you the opportunity to meet other people living in the Village. The more members the easier it becomes to organise activities and to generate new ideas.

The Committee tries to meet monthly and this is usually in the Twelve Knights in Margam. So, if anyone out there would like to be involved in some way, then please contact the Chairman, either through out website or Facebook. You will be made most welcome.
