A new Lunch Club has been set up by Rhuddlan Town Community Association. A very good 2 course meal with tea/ coffee and biscuits was provided for a very reasonable £4.
Gill Price, one of the volunteers from Rhuddlan Town Community Association said “the Lunch Club is open to everybody. We are very encouraged on how many people supported the first Lunch Club and we would like to reach out, in particular, to those people, that don’t get out much. This is an opportunity to come out for a meal and a chat with others”.
The Mayor, Cllr Andy Smith said that this is an excellent initiative and is very keen for it to work. There are people in Rhuddlan that would benefit in coming along to the Lunch Club in Rhuddlan Community Centre. There is no need to be nervous about coming on your own, Rhuddlan Town Community Association Volunteers will make you feel very welcomed.
The next Lunch Club will be held at Rhuddlan Community Centre, Friday 9th March – opens at 11am.
Rhuddlan Town Council have installed two new defibrillators in Rhuddlan: one outside the Police Station and one outside the New Inn making them accessible 24/7. The Town Council are grateful to Steve Gill of the New Inn, North Wales Police and Achub Calon y Dyffryn in helping the Town Council make this happen.
The Mayor, Cllr Andy Smith “there are now 4 defibrillators in Rhuddlan, one in Ysgol y Castell, one in Rhuddlan Community Centre and two on the High Street. This initiative by Achub Calon y Dyffryn brings communities together to save lives. There was a good turnout in the free training course last week. For those who missed it and would like to know how to be able to use a defibrillator, there will be another course organized in the autumn. Please keep an eye out on the website.”
Congratulations to Poppy Grayston, a pupil at Ysgol y Castell, winner of the Christmas Treasure Hunt organised by Pengwern College young enterprise students. The Mayor of Rhuddlan donated the hamper as first prize and was beautifully created by the Little Cheese Shop in Rhuddlan. The Mayor, Cllr Andy Smith hopes that Poppy and her family enjoy the hamper. A big thanks to the young enterprise students at Pengwern College for working so hard creating the Treasure Hunt and due to the great response and success of the events, it is hoped that this becomes an annual event in partnership with Pengwern College.
