Good news if you live in a flat or own one on the waterfront

BWCRA has been lobbying the Welsh Government on behalf of residents who live in or own flats on the Waterfront. We have just received this news from Jane Hutt's office:

"The Welsh Government will be providing funding later in 2021 for comprehensive surveys to identify  all the issues affecting fire safety in blocks of flats. Initially this will be for residential blocks over 17m in height and then for blocks over 11m in height, both private and public. This will identify the scale of the problem in Wales so that solutions  for tackling the fire safety problems can be drawn up."

The Book Exchanges are open

Good things, they say, are worth waiting for but at last they are here! When the group of volunteers running the Covid 19 Support group who had been supporting their neighbours through the darkest days of the 2020 - 21 pandemic wound up their group they wanted a lasting legacy. 

Various ideas were suggested but a living legacy in the form of free book exchanges were agreed upon and their construction and installation was organised by the BWCRA volunteers. 

More volunteers supervise the book exchanges and they have proved a big success. Far from competing with the local library as some feared, they are encouraging reading which will increase footfall at the library and bookshops.

Both are located in Linear Park, one on Phase 1 and the other on Phase 2. Why not take a peek and pick up a read or drop off your copy of War & Peace?
