From the Committee

To the Rowen Community

Happy New Year to you all

We will be holding our first quarterly meeting of the Rowen Community Group in the Memorial Hall on Thursday 27 January, starting at 7.00pm.  There will be an opportunity for discussion to share ideas, hopes and aspirations for the coming year.  After that there will be a business meeting for the Committee to begin planning the coming year’s events.

 

Numbers are limited in the Hall to 30 still, so do come early to avoid being disappointed.  Please wear a mask.  If you are displaying any cold-like symptoms, more than likely you may have CV-19 so please do not attend.

 

 

Annwyl Aelodau Cymuned Rowen,
Blwyddyn Newydd Dda i chwi i gyd.
Byddwn yn cynnal ein cyfarfod chwarterol cyntaf  Grŵp Cymunedol Rowen yn y Neuadd Goffa, Rowen nos Iau 27ain o Ionawr, gan ddechrau am 7.00yh.
Bydd cyfle i drafod, rhannu syniadau a gobeithion ar gyfer y flwyddyn i ddod. Ar ôl y cyfarfod agored mi fydd cyfarfod busnes i aelodau o’r pwyllgor i ddechrau cynllunio digwyddiadau’r flwyddyn i ddod.

Mae’r niferoedd yn gyfyngedig yn y Neuadd yn 30 yn bersonol, felly dewch yn gynnar i osgoi cael eich siomi. Gwisgwch fwgwd os gwelwch yn dda. Os ydych chi’n arddangos unrhyw symptomau tebyg i annwyd, mae’n fwy na thebyg y gallai fod gennych CV-19 felly peidiwch â mynychu os gwelwch yn dda.

Rowen Zoom Facility

 

GCRCG has acquired a Zoom licence that will allow up to 100 people 24 hours per meeting together.   In practice, that is far more and far longer than we have needed to date, but being able to hold meetings that last longer than 40 minutes is very helpful. The cost was again covered by Rowen Memorial Hall Committee.

 

As we move into the winter, and look into 2022, having a facility that will allow more broad networking and communication may well prove invaluable.  It will also facilitate the village’s Committees having more regular meetings together.

 

We can only operate one zoom meeting at a time so the GCRCG Secretary will need to be the co-ordinator and maintain a bookings diary.

 

The facility is available to Rowen Memorial Hall and GCRCG Committees and can be made available to other village based groups upon request.

 

Practicalities

A dedicated email address – rowenzoom@gmail.com – has been set up with which to log-in.

You will need to have loaded the Zoom App onto your device – please note it does not tend to work so easily on a mobile phone.

After your meeting, please remember to sign out.

The password will change regularly, and the current one can be obtained from the Secretary, Gwenan Jones

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 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.

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.

Rowen residents regularly plant over 500 crocus bulbs under the Willow.
Crocus flowers are a great source of early pollen for the bees.
