Mynydd Brombil Windfarm

The CHCA has been advised of the following and it might be of interest to any group organizers in the Village.



Tuesday, 14th March 2017
6pm – 8.30pm
Taibach Community Centre, Duke Street, Port Talbot, SA13 1NA

The Turbines on Mynydd Brombil are now in full swing and on Tuesday, 14th March 2017, NPTCBC’s Project Development and Funding Unit will be launching the first round of cyclical funding for the Mynydd Brombil Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund. As you may be aware, £38,000 per annum will be made available from the energy company REG Power for the benefit of Community Groups in the wards of Port Talbot, Taibach and Margam.

At the launch we’ll be talking about how the application process will work, who can apply, what they can apply for and how much grant aid they can seek – answering any questions you may have along the way.

We hope that you will be able to attend the launch event, and would be grateful if you could confirm your attendance by Tuesday, 7th March 2017.

Vandalism on the Village

Just an update to our recent Facebook enter concerning the NPTCs Anti-Vandalism Team efforts in cleaning up the mess left by Saturday nights vandals. It was thanks to our Cllr Rob Jones; the CHCA contacted him on Sunday; who took the early action to have the clean-up team here at 9.30am this morning. Not only did they clear the paint from the MUGA area (apart from the MUGA surface) and the storage container, they also cleaned the seats, bins and noticeboard around the pond. This has meant that the gates to the field can now be reopened. However, the MUGA remains closed; apart from booked events; until the surface can be cleaned.

We are sure that you will all join with us in giving a big THANK YOU to Rob Jones and the Anti-vandalism Team.

Thank you too to those people on the Village who offered their services if we had been required to do the clean-up ourselves

Vandalism in the Village

Because of the vandalism in the Village last night we are closing the MUGA until we can decide how to clear up the mess. It was not only the MUGA area and storage container that were daubed with paint but also the Village noticeboard and the pavement in front it, the seats around the pond and the rubbish bin by the seats. We will open the MUGA for any booked events but close it again afterwards until further notice. If anyone has any information about who could have done this then please contact the CHCA in confidence.
