On the 5th February there will be a road closure for one day due to telecom polling works. The road being closed will be the Unclassified (U3026) road towards Middle Mill – from its junction with the C3057 crossroads, west to its junction within the vicinity of the property known as Tremaenhir. An alternative route can be found on the C3057 Middle Mill towards Brawdy, and C3057 road towards the U3026 junction. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

As part of our commitment to a healthy and safe community we’re supporting the Save a Life Cymru project. We’ll be sharing more information from the project as we have it.
Every year over 6,000 people in Wales will have a cardiac arrest in the community and many will die without some simple and easy to learn interventions. Save a Life Cymru; established to increase the number of people who survive a cardiac arrest in the community; is seeking your support to help them share this important lifesaving message.
They have produced a training video: https://gov.wales/save-a-life-cymru and are looking to assist with training for public access defibrillators and encouraging the installation of more.
Touch Someone’s Life, a public information campaign, explains what any person should do in the event of a cardiac arrest (a condition where the heart suddenly stops working and the person becomes unconscious). CPR must be started immediately to pump blood around the body and a defibrillator used to restart the heart. The unpredictable and time-sensitive nature of cardiac arrest in the community makes it a unique medical emergency. There is no other medical situation that relies on such community intervention.
Around 80% of community cardiac arrests in Wales happen in peoples’ homes and can happen to anyone at any time. Many who experience a cardiac arrest often appear healthy with no known risk factors. This emphasises the importance for everyone to have CPR skills to help save family, friends, colleagues, neighbours or a stranger.
Their ambition is to create cultural change across Wales so that everyone understands the urgent need to help anyone experiencing a cardiac arrest, as well as having the skills and confidence to start CPR and defibrillation.
Each year, the accounts of Solva Community Council are audited by the Auditor General of Wales. This process is now complete and the Audit Report and Annual Return have now been published on the website.
Following on from the successful Solva Symposium held earlier this year, Solva Care will be hosting an online event for all community groups – or community-minded individuals – to find out more about how they could participate in this Pembrokeshire-wide partnership project.
Together for Change is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund to bring community groups together in Pembrokeshire to network and provide mutual support so that as many communities as possible can benefit.
The event is hosted by Zoom on Tuesday 30 June at 10am. For more details, see our project page Together for Change page. To register email Project Coordinator Jessie Buchanan on email@example.com before the 26 June giving the following information: your name, organisation and number of volunteers (if applicable), contact details, and area of interest in community development. Please let Jessie know if you would like to participate but have trouble with accessing Zoom and we will see if we can help.
