PKC Group Meeting 1900 on Tuesday 3rd September @ The Holly Bush Inn


Dear Fellow People of the Cefn & Cefn Mawr and when we say that we mean all of us that live in the central section of the Pontcysyllte WHS around the aqueduct. That means Cefn Mawr, Cefn Bychan, Plas Madoc, New Bridge, Rhosymedre, Acrefair, Trevor, Garth, Froncysyllte and even Pentry I guess. We the PKC Group are now starting regular meetings on the first Tuesday of every other month and anyone with a genuine interest in our community moving on from post-industrial depression to economic recovery is welcome. This covers many aspects from Road Safety to Housing, but we believe must be led by bringing in tourism to our village centre and wider community. We have some of the best opportunity available in Wales on our doorstep and yet we see virtually nothing from it at present, and this is wrong. So, if you want to see improvement, join us, we will welcome you.


Sustainable Tourism Development will bring about Economic Regeneration and subsequently more work means more jobs offering our community more employment opportunity. We want to see a better deal for all of us and we are standing up and saying so. We are willing to take on whoever we need to, to get this done, and are doing so.


However, in the main we are an informal group that is quite friendly and welcomes new members. If you come along to our meetings you can join our emailing list to find out more about what we are doing for our community. You will be surprised and able to find out about our planned site visits, such as to Zip World who have kindly offered to help us. So, come along to our next meeting at 1900 on Tuesday the 3rd of September in the Holly Bush Inn. Hope to see you there, and the more the merrier!


Regards, David Metcalfe, Cefn Community Councillor & Dee Valley AONB Champion.


Local Trader Signage for Cefn Mawr
This planning application was put together in 2016 to support our local traders and show the passing traffic at the Tesco Roundabout that our village center was still open for business. Unfortunately the planning application was refused because of objection by WCBC and CCC.Therefore the matter is now being raised once again so that hopefully we can get planning permission for the signage and help our local traders which could even increase job opportunity through increased economic activity.
