From the Committee

Message from Rowen Community Group, February 2019

Many of you will be delighted to learn, if you have not done so already, that the Grwp Cymunedol Rowen Community Group is back up and running following the recent Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM).

The EGM was very well attended (27 people) – thank you to everyone who came and all who have expressed their interest in the Community Group’s future.  There was much discussion and Minutes will soon be posted on both the Rowen Community Group (RCG) and Rowen Village websites along with the Memorial Hall noticeboard.

A number of the previous Committee members are no longer able to serve.  We would like to thank them for all the hard work and passion they have put in over the past years on behalf of the village.  We feel special recognition should also be given to Graham, Jean and Jimmy for making the Car Boot Sales such a success.
Thank you, all of all.
The new Committee is now 11 strong, including some who are relatively new to the village.   We are:

Linda Anderson
Helen Hawkins (Secretary)
Sean Brand
Janet Haworth (Vice Chair)
Eileen Burtonwood
Gwenan Jones
John Burtonwood (Treasurer)
Catherine Mortimer Hart
Cllr. Goronwy Edwards
Dennis Oliver
Charles Hawkins (Chair)

We are here as your representatives to help put your wishes for the village into action. With the mix of experience and perspectives on the committee, we will seek to work for the benefit of all within the Rowen community.
It should go without saying, but we will anyway – a Community Group needs a Community.  We need your input, your ideas and, yes, your time. We cannot ‘do’ everything ourselves and we trust that as ideas arise, you will want to get involved.
Following recent suggestions, we are considering ways to help the Community Group meetings flow more smoothly – we will keep you posted as these take shape in time for the next meeting.  Watch this space!
So we look forward to 2019 with considerable anticipation. The whole Committee looks forward to getting to know the Community increasingly well and we are looking forward to serving you all.
From the Rowen Community Group.

Planting crocus bulbs near the flagpole

Rowen residents planted over 500 purple crocus bulbs in October 2016, as part of Rotary’s Purple for Polio Campaign, which aims to eradicate polio worldwide.
Thanks to Llandudno Rotary for providing the bulbs and to blacksmith Dewi Jones, Henryd Smithy for making the bulb planters.
Crocus flowers are a great source of early pollen for the bees.
A further 1000 bulbs were planted in November 2017.
