Royal Wedding: Saturday morning’s Tea and Chat was cancelled and instead members enjoyed a lovely “wedding tea” at 4pm to celebrate the marriage of Prince Henry of Wales to Meghan Markle. Dawn called in to give out Word Searches she had devised with a Royal Wedding theme. Many thanks to the ladies for making such a wonderful spread.
Bell Tower: A big thank you to Community Councillor Greg Rogers who has organised the repair to the bell tower from the original old school in St Brides and arranged for it to have pride of place in the current school grounds.
School Safety: Vale of Glamorgan Councillors made a visit to St Brides to see the site of a proposed lay by on Southerndown Road at Heol Cae Gwyn for the bus to drop off/pick up the schoolchildren. They also looked at the congestion that arises on the main road through the village on the B4265, that can become gridlocked by big lorries, tractors, tankers and numerous vehicles trying to travel through the village, which is more hazardous when children are being taken to and from school/nursery. The difficulties faced by pedestrians while trying to cross Southerndown Road and the B4265 were also highlighted.
St Bridget’s Church: History was made when the newly-appointed Bishop of Llandaff June Osborne came to St Bridget’s to take the service on May 20.
