The recent storms have thrown up an unprecedented amount of plastic waste onto the Morfa. This time a clean-up has been arranged for two mornings – Thursday 13th and Friday 14th March. As many volunteers as possible are required to help. Meet on the Morfa Beach by the railway crossing at 10.30 am.

Once again Keep Wales Tidy will be assisting us by providing plastic bags and tongs. They are sensibly not risking their trucks in the mud again, so the Yacht Club will kindly provide a tractor and trailer to collect the bags and bring them back to the village foreshore. Keep Wales Tidy will then take the bags away for disposal.
Please help if you can. Wellies and gloves are recommended, and dogs should be kept on a lead so as not to disturb the cattle. For further details please contact Colin Butters on 267516.

The three FSEG officers have been invited to a meeting with the County Council on 11th February to review progress on the project. In view of this, and the fact that we are awaiting tenders for the building work (deadline 17th Feb), the Chairman and the Secretary have decided to postpone the next meeting until 24th February in the White Lion Hotel, Ferryside.
In the meantime, here is a quick summary of the project status:
