"Already we are a month into 2019. The lights and decorations have been put away for another year. The community supported the Christmas Lights switch on and the Live Advent Calendar door openings – they all seem a long time ago now – how time flies!
"None of these go ahead without the work of the people who give up their time to organise them, and I know that most of the clubs and societies in Town would be glad of more help and new members. Any sort of help you can give would be much appreciated.
"The work on the new toilets and the Town Hall is progressing. The old asbestos has been removed and work will continue apace to get the refurbishment complete. Short-term disruption will mean long-term gain: please bear with us.
"There are still a minority who are fly-tipping in the area, and also letting dogs foul footpaths and play areas (especially under the cover of darkness). If you see any fly-tipping or dog-fouling, please report it to Powys County Council using their online form; they will investigate as soon as possible.
"Please be aware that if the bins at the recycling area are full, any rubbish left by the side of the bins will not be collected, and is classed as fly-tipping and could lead to prosecution. Either take it home and bring another day, or take it to Potters. Powys County Council are monitoring this.
"From a Mayoral point of view, it has been a relatively quiet time. All councillors are volunteers who give up their time freely to help the community. They are not paid and are all trying their best for our Town. We are still two councillors short, so if you would like more information on becoming a councillor, please get in touch with any of the councillors or the Town Clerk."
- Lionel Weaver, Mayor
