A “GROTESQUE” public toilet near two schools in Blaenau Ffestiniog is being used as a ‘drugs den’, it has been claimed.
The defunct toilet — based on Manod Road adjacent to the cemetery — is in awful condition and is having a “negative effect” on the area.
A concerned parent — who did want to be identified due to fears of drug-related retribution — contacted the Cambrian News.
“The public toilet is being used for all sorts of unsavoury activities — it’s in grotesque condition,” they said.
A MASS brawl in Aberystwyth, described as “akin to a Tarantino movie scene” resulted in just one arrest — and the lack of CCTV has been blamed for an inability to identify offenders.
The punchup in Terrace Road involved groups of drinkers from Newtown and Welshpool.
Town councillor Mark Strong, who witnessed the incident on Easter Sunday while out walking with family, said he was threatened after trying to intervene.
VOLUNTEER community support group CAMAD has stepped in to continue a Meals on Wheels service for elderly residents in the Mach ynlleth area.
The service was withdrawn by Powys County Council as a cost-cutting measure, leaving the community without Meals on Wheels from 27 March.
Machynlleth Town Council had discussed the service on a number of occasions and, at last week’s council meeting, town clerk Rab Jones reported that CAMAD had decided to take over the service.
Mr Jones told the meeting: “A letter from CAMAD is excellent news for Machynlleth resi-dents, we have given support to CAMAD in its end eavours.”
BUILT by a prince — saved by the people.
Residents of Cardigan, who fought for more than 15 years to save the town’s dilapidated castle, will today (Wednesday) take a first look inside the fully-restored site, almost 12 years to the day since the historic building came into public ownership.
Cardigan Castle, birthplace of the National Eisteddfod, has undergone a £12m restoration project, to transform the 900-year-old site into a modern heritage attraction, complete with luxury accommodation, riverside restaurant and summer events pro-gramme.
