Naming ceremony for Monty and Hattie

On 25th June Heidi led a wonderful naming ceremony for Monty and Hattie Manchand.

It was a great fun ceremony with children in fancy dress, bubbles blowing in the churchyard and an eclectic selection of musical instruments to help lift the rafters during the songs! Emma and Kevin Manchand are extremely grateful to Heidi for leading this non traditional event and it was wonderful to have the church filled with such colour and noise.

A great time was had by all followed by tea at Woodlands Barns afterwards with scrummy sausage rolls and pasties courtesy of The Parsons Nose.

Thanks also to Charlie and Craig for the use of their wonderful party barns.

Help improve the road layout on the A40 at Raglan to prevent further accidents

On June 20th 2017 a serious accident occurred after a driver pulled out of Groesenon Road (Frank Sutton Rd) to cross the A40 to Raglan and in to the path of a driver travelling at approximately 65mph along the dual carriageway towards the A449. Whilst the driver of the first vehicle was clearly at fault this type of incident is easily preventable with a changed road layout incorporating traffic lights or a roundabout.

Thankfully both drivers survived the collision due to the excellent safety features in each of their cars. Both spent time in hospital due to injuries sustained in the incident and this story could so easily have had a more sombre ending.

A petition has been started to call on the National Assembly for Wales to make an urgent review of the road layout in the interests of the many walkers, cyclists and drivers whose lives are put at risk by this junction each day.

5000 signatures are required, which is unfair for such a small community so as well as signing the petition yourself please ask your partners, parents, grandparents and everyone you know to sign!

Please click here to sign the petition

Or go to www.change.org and search for A40
