Persimmon Meeting 02/02/2017


there will be a Persimmon meeting in Coety School between 6 & 8pm on Thursday 2nd February.

The format will be similar to the last meeting in July.

Andy Baker-Edwards, regional MD and Carl Davey, Construction Director will be attending to answer questions or address concerns you may have.

Please feel free to drop me a line or comment here if there are any particular matters that you would like to raise so that I can ensure they come prepared.



Carols On The Greeny!!

Further to the many requests received for a repeat of the Carol Concert on the Green and the visit from Santa  we held last year, I am pleased to let you know that arrangements for this Christmas Eve event are well underway.

Santa is booked, volunteers are making mince pies, Welsh Cakes,  sausage rolls and fairy cakes, Rhian Butcher is sorting the music and songs, the wine is mulling and any other offers of help will be gratefully received.

This event is for all Coity residents and will take place on the green bordering Maes yr Eithin.  All that we ask is, if you are bringing children please provide a small wrapped gift for each of your children, clearly marked with their name which will magically reappear in Santas sack for him to give out.  We could do with some Santa helpers to discretely collect in the presents ready for Santa. If you want to dress as an elf all the better !

Between now and Saturday we are going to convert our double garage into a grotto for Santa and a shelter for singers – in case of inclement weather like last years. If anyone can help with this temporary conversion, all help most welcome.

Quick recap:

Venue – the Green bordering Maes yr Eithin

Start Time – 6pm

Date – Saturday 24th Dec.

Please let me know if you are coming and if you can help in any way via a message on this post. I would like some idea of numbers to ensure we have enough food and wine.

Also, tomorrow (Wednesday) is the last day for you to contribute to the collection of non perishable food stuff for donation to the Bridgend food bank.  My home at 5 Maes yr Eithin is the PD collection point so please help out no matter how small your contribution.

Hope to see lots of you on Saturday evening and got my fingers crossed that the storms that are forecast pass us by!!

Best Wishes and Merry Christmas

Carol & Bill Daniel

Promote your Business – Y Bont Fundraiser

Since launching We have been trying to think of ways to bring the community together and to make this page as open, useful and as informative as possible.

Early on, one rule we put in place was that no advertising from businesses was allowed on the page.

But now, alongside our Sensory Garden Fundraiser for Y Bont, we have given companies the potential opportunity to promote on this page for a limited time and with the run up to Christmas, we thought this would be an ideal time to allow you all to promote your businesses.

All we ask for in return is a donation (Minimum of £10) to our Fundraiser and this will allow you to promote your business on this page until 31st of January, 2017.

All you have to do is head over to the website (direct link…/y-bont-sensory-garden-fundrais…/ ) and donate a minimum of £10.

Once this is done, contact myself (Lee) or Dean to confirm payment and then you will be allowed to advertise on the page until 31/01/2017.

We’re hoping to raise at least £1000 for a fantastic cause and with your donations and Christmas spirit, I’m sure we can achieve this sooner than expected.
