Making A Point

     When I first saw the headline, it looked like the skies had opened and all along Swansea Bay had received showers of drawing-pins from passing clouds.

But a report on Radio Wales put me right.

It seems that someone or someones has or have been sprinkling those drawing pins all along a stretch of the path from Mumbles to Swansea.   Clearly the culprit/culprits have no sense of social-responsibility and probably “did it for laughs”.

Bicycle tyres have been punctured, joggers footwear has collected a fair bit of metallic soling and heeling, and dog-walkers have seen their pooches’ paws injured.

Did not those “out for a laugh” not have the mental capacity to see the problems they would cause?

The answer to that is clearly “No”.

Progress In A Small Place

     I never think of Tregaron, up there in Ceredigion, as being a very big town.   Indeed, on my visits there, it looks to me more like a small village.

But, even in such a place, progress into the 21st Century is being made.

A lot of money is going to be spent – and rightly so, say I – on creating a proper care and health centre there to help lots of people all over that part of the county.   It means converting the small hospital there into a place to which people can go for all sorts of health help and advice.

If Wales receives such assets, the money will be well invested.   Better by far than creating Trident missiles or any instruments of war.

About Archie Lowe

Though not born in Wales, I have lived and worked here for many years now. I love the place and love that mercurial thing "Welshness". I have been accused of being "a Taffophile" - which is pretty near the truth. The question I ask whenever some idea comes up for the whole of the UK is: "What's in it for Wales". I believe in an independent Wales and am so pleased that our Assembly is a big step on that road.
