HEART SAFE
A few years ago, Tredegar Town Council recognised the efforts of Mike Morgan in raising funds to purchase and locate two heart defibrillators in the town centre. Last year, the Council recognise the efforts of Cassie and Amy, who saved the life of a resident in Tredegar Sports Centre by using their defibrillator. They realised that having a network of defibrillators in the town can make lifesaving a reality and would make Tredegar a safer place to live and visit.
Tredegar Town Council and Mike Morgan stayed in touch and, through working together, have now  realised a dream of placing a further six defibrillators in the town.
Tredegar Town Council has purchased a defibrillator for each of the schools in the town. Whist they are primarily there for the safety of our young people, their location spread throughout the community will make a safer place for us all. The staff at each school have been trained in their use and the equipment has been registered with  St. John's Ambulance First Responders who will have access to the defibrillators when called out.
Councillor Tom Smith, Leader of Tredegar Town Council said, 'We realise what a huge difference quick access to a defibrillator makes when saving a life. Through the purchase of these defibrillator all parents will know that their children are safe while at school. We want to publicise the location of the equipment so that the whole of our community knows where to go if one is needed and more importantly the St. John's Ambulance First Responders will have access to these life saving devices.'
Mr. Martin Price, Head of Bryn Bach Primary School, thanked the Council for the equipment and added, 'we now know that our pupils will be safe at school and our whole community will be a safer place too.'
Mr. Robbins receiving the equipment on behalf of Tredegar Comprehensive School added, 'We have one at school but this means that we can take one with us to all sporting events to ensure our pupils are safe at all times.'

Smart Energy GB raising Smart Meters Awareness
Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters which will replace the traditional meters in our homes. Every home in England, Scotland and Wales will be offered a smart meter by their energy supplier, at no extra cost, between now and 2020.
Smart meters will enable you to see exactly how much energy you're using, as you use it, and what it is costing in pounds and pence. This will help you to stay more in control of your energy use.
Smart meters take regular readings and share these wirelessly, through a secure network, with your energy supplier. You can choose to send this information daily, weekly or even half hourly.
This means your bills will be accurate, not estimated, and you will no longer need to have manual meter readings.
Along with your smart meter, you will receive an in-home display, a handheld digital device that shows exactly how much energy you're using and what it is costing in near real time.
In the future, smart meters will make switching between suppliers, or between credit and prepay, quicker and easier. If you are a prepay customer, you will also be able to top up online or via mobile phone.
Energy suppliers are installing smart meters for their customers at different times. When you are eligible to get a smart meter can depend on many different factors, such as the age of your existing meter and the type of housing you live in. Your supplier will be in touch to arrange an appointment when they are ready to install yours. They are FREE of charge.Smart Energy GB is the voice of the smart meter rollout. It's their task to help everyone in Great Britain understand smart meters, the national rollout and how to use our new meters to get our gas and electricity under control.
For more information about smart meters and how they can help you visit smartenergyGB.org

Welsh Water/Dŵr Cymru

Good afternoon,
We've recently launched Have Your Say to ask customers how they would like us to prioritise £30 million of potential future profit for next year.
This is the additional money that we're able to invest on their behalf because of our not-for-profit model. Money, that in other companies, would have been paid to shareholders.
Customers can let us know what they would like us to prioritise from the following areas:

  • Money off bills
  • Extra help for people who struggle
  • Investing more in our pipes, pumps and water treatment works
  • Investing now to help save money in the future through renewable energy and innovation
  • Supporting educational and recreational projects in our communities
  • Speeding up improvements for people who experience repeat problems

Over the summer we've taken our Dŵr bar to the Royal Welsh and will be visiting the Eisteddfod and a number of towns across Wales and Herefordshire. We will be asking customers to let us know what they want to see us invest in. We'll also be using a TV ad campaign, which features our very own colleagues and their families, to do this.

Party In The Park, Sunday 12th June 2016
The residents of Tredegar gathered in large numbers for a party in Bedwellty Park. The event was organised by Tredegar Town Council to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday. The Park looked resplendent, the bandstand centrepiece cloaked in gay bunting surrounded by immaculate lawns dotted with brightly coloured flower beds.

Pupils from Tredegar schools joined over 200 invited guests of all ages who enjoyed a picnic as a thank you for their dedicated voluntary service to organisations, clubs and societies in the town. The picnic bags contained a selection of finger sandwiches, fresh cream scone, traditional trifle, mini tarts and welshcakes.

The entertainment for this special event was provided by our champions, Tredegar Town Band who delighted the audience with highlights from their broad repertoire. A finale of toe-tapping numbers transformed the Park into the last night of the proms.

Aneurin Leisure who run Bedwellty Park put on many activities for the younger guests with craft activities, face painting, croquet and giant board games such and snakes and ladders.
Tredegar Town Mayor, Cllr Jacqueline Thomas said, "as Town Mayor you meet many people who dedicate their lives to the clubs and organisations in the town. Their voluntary service makes Tredegar a rich and diverse hub of cultural and sporting activity and makes the town a better place to live. It is a privilege to reward these volunteers in a small way to say thank you for their efforts."

The Leader of Tredegar Town Council, Cllr Tommy Smith added, "I would like to put on record our thanks to the staff at Bedwellty House and the young volunteers who made the party such a success. Days like this makes you really humble when you see so many people who have given so much service to our town."

One of those guests, Sue Woodward of the Blaenau Gwent Otters Swimming Club added her thanks, "On behalf of The Otters I would like to thank you for the wonderful day down Bedwelty Park. The band were fantastic and so was the food. The Otters thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks to all concerned."
