MUGA Floodlights

chca-logo-traced-colour-with-text-200x195.png

In order to reduce the electricity bill for the MUGA floodlights a new system of operation has been installed thanks to a grant from the Newlands Fund. The floodlights will still be available between dusk and 9.00pm during the Autumn/Winter months, but now to bring them on during this period, a silver button on the side of the electric cabinet must be pressed.

This means that on cold and wet nights the floodlights will remain off while no one is using the facility.

The Field at the end of Cwrt yr Eos

Just a reminder that the field at the end of Cwrt yr Eos is, at this time of year, the farmers hay field and he will not be well pleased if it is flattened by members of the Village and their dogs. In the past he has said that he does not mind people walking around the edge of the field or crossing it after they have harvested the hay, except, of course, when his sheep are in residence their. Just to let you know before we have another problem.

Looking after the MUGA

cropped-site-icon.jpg

It was disappointing this morning to see such an accumulation of rubbish (bottles, cartons, paper) left in the MUGA. It is the responsibility of those who use the MUGA to clear up when they finish playing and to put their own rubbish in the bins provided. There is no one paid to keep the MUGA clean, it belongs to the Village, so it is your responsibility to keep it tidy.

Should this continue the CHCA will have to consider what steps to take. This could mean closing it and only opening it for periods when it has been booked and paid for. To have to take such a step would be a great pity. So, if you have children or teenagers who regularly use this facility, then please advise them of the consequences of leaving their drink bottles and wrappers behind.

CHCA would also like to mention that dogs are not allowed in the MUGA. The signs, to this effect, were unfortunately removed by persons unknown shortly after they were installed.

Thanks to Maes Glas Vets

The CHCA would like to thank Maes Glas Vets, and especially Dr Emma Geddes, for a great presentation last night on how to care for our canine friends. Thanks to too all those who attended and who I am sure learned a great deal. Thanks must also go to the vets assistant and her very well behaved dog Bubbles.
