This Remembrance Sunday, there will be a wreath-laying ceremony at St. Margaret’s Church at 11 am. This will be preceded by a Service of Remembrance for all faiths at 10 am.
This year marks 100 years since collective Remembrance traditions were first brought together.
“Remembrance means different things to different people,” writes The Royal British Legion. “For some it’s about observing traditional elements of Remembrance such as the Two Minute Silence and the laying of wreaths. But over the years, and across different cultures and communities, Remembrance is evolving. Remembrance now takes many forms and means something different to everyone. It can be a collective act or something deeply personal.”
Last year saw the first time that the Remembrance service was live-streamed through social media. We know that for some people, getting out and together with others is still very difficult. We are sharing this video from The Royal British Legion here to encourage everyone to act and remember in the way they are most comfortable with and to know that however that may be, we are still together.
Publication of audited accounts for the year ended 31 March 2021
Regulation 15(5) of the Accounts and Audit (Wales) Regulations 2014 (as amended) requires that by 30 September 2021, Crynant Community Council publish its accounting statements for the year ended 31 March 2021 together with any certificate, opinion, or report issued, given or made by the Auditor General.
The accounting statements in the form of an annual return have been published on the Council’s website. However, the accounts are published before the conclusion of the audit. Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Auditor General has not yet issued an audit opinion.
Cyhoeddi cyfrifon archwiliedig ar gyfer y flwyddyn a ddaeth i ben 31 Mawrth 2021
Mae rheoliad 15 (5) o Reoliadau Cyfrifon ac archwilio (Cymru) 2014 (fel y’i diwygiwyd) yn ei gwneud yn ofynnol, erbyn 30 Medi 2021, i Cyngor Cumuned Creunant gyhoeddi ei ddatganiadau cyfrifyddu ar gyfer y flwyddyn a ddaeth i ben 31 Mawrth 2021 ynghyd ag unrhyw dystysgrif, barn neu adroddiad a gyhoeddwyd, a roddwyd neu a wnaed gan yr Archwilydd Cyffredinol.
Mae’r datganiadau cyfrifyddu ar ffurf ffurflen flynyddol wedi’u cyhoeddi ar wefan y Cyngor. Fodd bynnag, cyhoeddir y cyfrifon cyn i’r archwiliad ddod i ben. Oherwydd effaith COVID-19, nid yw’r Archwilydd Cyffredinol wedi cyhoeddi barn archwilio eto.
Interested in Birds?
Well if you couldn’t make Friday’s flower walk perhaps you’d like to join us on Tuesday (20th) for an evening bird walk.
Our local bird specialist, Heather Coats, will be taking a stroll up the Community Forest identifying bird calls on the way till we get to the Nightjar territory at dusk to hear and possibly see these rare birds that are in residence.
Please note this may not be appropriate for most children as we won’t be back till nearly 11.00pm and they need to be quiet on the walk.
Meet at the Badger’s Gate at 8.45 pm. Bring a torch and suitable footwear, insect repellant and cover up clothes etc as there may be midges.
Certification and approval of annual accounts for 2020-2021
Regulation 15(1) of the Accounts and Audit (Wales) Regulations 2014 (as amended) requires that Responsible Financial Officer of Crynant Community Council sign and date the statement of accounts, and certify that it properly presents Crynant Community Council’s receipts and payments for the year. The Regulations required that this be completed by 30 June 2021.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Responsible Financial Officer has been unable to prepare the accounts. The statement of accounts will be prepared and the Responsible Financial Officer will sign and certify the statement of accounts when the immediate pressures of the COVID-19 outbreak have subsided.
Regulation 15(2) of the Accounts and Audit (Wales) Regulations 2014 (as amended) requires that following the certification by the Responsible Financial Officer referred to above, the Council must approve the accounts. The Regulations require that this be completed by 30 June 2020.
The Council has been unable to meet to approve the accounts as the Responsible Financial Officer has not yet certified the accounts
Crynant Community Council would like to invite you to take part in celebrating the 100 year anniversary of Segadelli’s through the contribution to a Memory Book that will be given to Stella at the close of the year.
The Memory Book can accept images, short and long text, and can even contain a list of your top 3, 5, 10, or more, sweets, memories, and people. We’d encourage everyone to contribute as much and kindly as possible, and if you can help this Memory Book travel to other users or customers, please feel free to use the ‘share’ buttons below or direct people to the link itself.
Following the passing of our late Sovereign HRH The Duke of Edinburgh our sadness at this time is shared by people across the globe. We remember him with affection and gratitude for the lifetime of service he gave.
Prince Phillip supported Queen Elizabeth the Second whilst she led this country through many difficult times, and he did so with humility and compassion.
May he rest in peace.
The public may wish to lay flowers at NPTCBC Civic Centers. This should be treated with care and respect.

For all of our wonderful walkers who wish to undertake the Moongazer Hare challenge, we’ve just installed a new picnic bench for giving those hard-working legs a well-deserved rest.
We’ve also added a new information panel at the Beaconsview bench. This is a specially positioned panel that provides information on the landmarks that you can see.
Enjoy your walk!
