Congratulations to our Community Council Award Winner 2018

By // March 22nd, 2019

Congratulations to Mr Bill Daniel, winner of our Annual Community Award for 2018.

Since moving to Parc Derwen Bill has not only set up the Keep Coity Tidy group and spent hours clearing up rubbish, he also drove stranded health workers to work during the snow last year and often bakes Welsh cakes and sells them outside Coety Primary School with his granddaughter to raise money for the school and he raises funds for other charities too.   He’s always the first to volunteer and help out and the Community Council were delighted to present him with the award.

On 14th March, Mr and Mrs Daniel were invited to the Community Council meeting where Bill was presented with an engraved shield, along with a small gift, and Mrs Daniel was presented with a bouquet of flowers.   Both were presented by the Chair of Council, Councillor Martin Williams.

Your Community Council hope you are enjoying the wonderful display of daffodils in the 3 wards of Coity Higher Community Council.   These were planted by your councillors and volunteers.   Each autumn your council purchases sacks of bulbs and plants them in the 3 wards.  The two planters we also provide, one on Coity Road, Pendre and one on Litchard Hill, also contain a lovely display of spring flowers.

Repairs to Allotment Gardens Roadway

By // November 13th, 2018

It’s great to see that the repairs to the Allotment Gardens roadway have been carried out, as well as tarmacing the two most problematic areas, additional drainage and a soakaway have been installed.  This should make access to the gardens during the wetter months much easier for the tenants to access their plots.

Here are some photos of the work:

Coity Higher Community Council has been completing work within the community to mark the WW1 Centenary.

Coety Playing Field behind the church has been entrusted into the Centenary Fields in Trust initiative so that it is protected from development in future years and has been named Cae’r Eglwys.  A plaque has been installed to mark the occasion.   In addition, the Community Council has refurbished the railings around the war memorial at Heol yr Ysgol, painted the bench next to the memorial and Borough Councillor Amanda Williams arranged for the section of  footway in front of the memorial to be renewed.
