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.
