kitchen Sink News

Yesterday I recieved an email from one of the community council members.
He asked me to post it on today's blog in order to raise awareness of the event.
I agreed

Hi John, Great blog entry today - I nearly wept over my laptop. It always breaks me up.

On a different issue, as I know many in the village follow your blog, and only if you feel it appropriate, could you plug the drop ins for discussing community transport .
"Community transport drop in events 22/02/17 - 4.30pm-5.30pmGwaenysgor Village Hall and 24/02/17 - 4.30pm-5.30pmTrelawnyd Memorial Hall"
The Community Council have arranged them with FCC
With the declining public transport in our area we need to do something on a community basis and I was hoping to get as many people there as we can to discuss what we can do.
Thanks John - if you feel it inappropriate then I will not feel offended.



  1. I love this!
    John Grays blog becomes Trelawnyd's online town crier!

    I hope there are some bright ideas to help with the transport issues!

  2. Trelawnyd needs Uber!

    1. LOL, in case their days go too smoothly ..

  3. Would be there if I could....only SW France is a bit too far to travel if I am to get back here for the evening milking!

  4. Trelawnyd needs you!

  6. I think that is lovely. Another example of what a close knit community you live in and how comfortable the people are with you and each other. I live next door to people who have no idea who I am and if I even live here .. sigh .. I need a Village.

  7. I hope the meetings do some good. People might have a need or love to help, but have no idea who to ask about it.

    You don't mind being the town crier do you, John?

  8. Love this, need to know !
    Adore when you post a photo of you views from your home. This kitchen window view of your green wall and table reminds me of you photos of the view out your kitchen door. It is just so green and beautiful. You live in a beautiful place.

    cheers, parsnip

  9. At least you dont have continual complaints about dog poo on your community oyez oyez.

    1. Yes, who could say no when asked so sweetly ?

  11. I can see a poster with Auntie Glad's picture on it with the caption "Auntie Glad needs you!" By Cracky if I saw it in my little mountain town I'd go.

  12. I'm sorry I can't attend but put down my voice for some serious action!!! We are continuosly fighting for our means of public transport here, don't let them forget about you, go for it!!!
    I'm square, but I care!

  13. And John, this is why I love reading your blog!

  14. John, you have a heart of gold.

  15. How is anyone to get to the village hall if there is not enough public transport?

  16. John, after retirement would you consider running for a public office?
