Current Projects Summary

The Town Council held a summer fair to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on Sunday 5 June 2022.   The Town Council are grateful to Caerphilly county borough council for allowing the use of Tredegar Park, Risca for the event.

In early 2021 the Town Council had successfully taken on the 8 former CCBC flower planters in the Town alongside its annual flower baskets project for last  summer and again for this summer of 2022.

6 of the planters are located at the Pontymister roundabout grassed area of the town.   The Town Council had also added 2 new 4-tier planters; one at the Pontymister roundabout grassed area and one in the Park near the toilet block

In June this year the Council had contributed £3500 to the Moriah Church’s toilet block charity towards their running and maintenance costs.  The Council is considering a further donation for 2023/2024.

The Town Councils 2021 Festive Lanterns and Christmas Trees project
was underway from 3 December 2021.  The Town had 35 lit lanterns along Commercial Street and Tredegar Street n place as well as a large festive lantern located in the Park, adjacent to the trees. The Council discussed the project and note that the Trees had raised a mixed response from some residents on social media. The Clerk reported that he had ordered additional sets of coloured tree lights that were  delivered by mid-December for the local contractor to add to the main tree

A new entertainments project is to be considered by the Town Council over 2022 to celebrate its tenth anniversary in April 2023.
