Were you at school with John Roberts?  

 

“Hi! I would like to say that finding your web site has brought back so many memories of my time growing up in Resolven where I was born. I left in 1961 when my parents moved to Bournemouth and I live near Chorley in Lancashire now, and my children and grandchildren have been amused seeing me in as they say” old photographs”!  I now make it a weekly reading.

I would like it if any names can be tagged on the last photo I was in and that is the school production of HMS Pinafore.

Regards,

John Roberts

COMMENT:

 

Found your website by chance and have just read the whole thing-wonderful!

 

I am in essence from Resolfen having been christened in St. David’s by Vicar Lewis many years ago. I remember “Ned Chips” like it was yesterday.  My Gran and Grampa lived across from The Miners’ Welfare, next door to Mrs. Megan Prosser and her daughter.

 

EDITOR ASKING- “Anyone remember Gareth?”

Saturday morning,the Square is a mess of food cartons,cans,bottles &

papers,what a state.

Who are these people who have no pride in our village, they should be

prosecuted & made to clean it up. Maybe a CCTV camera sited there would catch

them.

Cars On Pavement

Question

 

Can anything be done to remind vehicle owners that they should not park their cars on the pavement?

 

This practice causes endangerment to pedestrians when they have to walk on the highway.

 

Consider the problem of a young mother with a toddler, and perhaps a young child in a pram.

 

We try to teach our children that the pavement is a safe place for them, and that they should not walk on a busy road.

 

A particular concern is Railway Terrace, where cars are often parked on the pavement, even though there is a parking bay near by.  This pavement is used as a route to school.

Cars Parking Issue Resolved

Councillor Gary Evans was also very concerned about the cars parked on pavements and highlighted the situation at a recent Police Liaison meeting.    All the residents in Railway Terrace were then issued with warnings from the Police and the problem has now ceased
