If Wales’ NHS gets its way, BronglaisHospital in Aberystwyth will be downgraded to a cottage-hospital. Many facilities will disappear and people living in its catchment area will have to travel all the way down to Swansea for treatment.
This will put more financial pressure on those people, as well as a lot of stress.
I would ask you, then, to sign this petition about which a friend informed me:-
Eight-hundred holiday-lodges are going to be built on Sir Fon. They’ll be near Holyhead.
The project to create this “quality destination” is going to attract a lot of visitors to the area, and it will create six-hundred jobs.
However, there are fears that, initially, those lodges will be used to house workers on the impending new nuclear power-station nearby.
All the time, the “creating jobs” argument is used to slip something most of us don’t want past us.
Perhaps, people of Anglesey, you shouldn’t just wait and see – you should get up on your hind legs and ask for total honesty and total guarantees about the project!
Respecting The Myth
On a couple of occasions when I’ve been enjoying myself along the Carmarthenshire coast, I’ve been asked by holidaymakers where the village of Llareggub is!
So deep in people’s minds is that village that many think Dylan Thomas wrote about a real place.
He wrote about fictional people, humorous sketches of the types he knew dwelt in such places all over South Wales. And I can tell you from personal experience that they still do! That’s such an endearing characteristic of our land.
After twenty-eight years, Sir Peter Blake had finished his illustrations of the mythical village and they’ll be on display at our NationalMuseum in Cardiff.
I have spoken with people who remember that first broadcast – live it was – of Under Milk Wood. The thing they all seem to agree on is that what they heard was “so Welsh”.
And Dylan’s most famous work stands as testimony to his genius.
