    I would like the post about the car crash on the 18th of April removed or at least edited to include actual facts, no one “fled the scene” and no one was “later apprehended”.
    The driver (me) was doing no more than 30 and hit a bump (not oil?) and clipped a silver Peugeot and then hit a BMW 1 series, which rolled into a van (cannoned?).

  2. Zebra finch spotted in Penarth garden. Anyone lost one due to windows open in hot weather?

    To clarify about “youth disturbance” at Penarth Athletic Field earlier this year / this was in fact an unprovoked serious assault on members of Penarth RFC Youth by a gang of youths from bay area
    Penarth earlier that day had won WRU Plate

      And does anyone know if any of these ‘Bay’ people – read: Grangetown/Docks – have been apprehended or charged ?
      I believe that the local constabulary are well aware of who they are and at one point expected the same type of incident at Dinas Powys Rugby Club and so I would have expected some action from them. Has there been any, or is this type of news involving one group who are mainly of a different skin colour, to be suppressed as in other areas of Europe ?

    Good afternoon. I read you recent article about the sale of parking spaces in Penarth. AS you are aware parking has become a real issue within Penarth. Only last week there was another article in the Penarth regarding Vale officials parking in disabled spaces. I have recently been observing the situation at the sea front and notice the ongoing abuse by the a developer and his respective contractors within the sea front parking facilties. There is a total disregard for the the highways and associated bylaws. I have a number of photographs which I am sure will generate interesting reading for our community. If you would like to discuss the matter further, please do not hesitate to contact me.
    Kind Regards

    Hi I’ve just read the first article on your page regarding Penarth Hights. I live in one of the housing association properties on St Joseph’s Mews. I have been battling with Crest for five years in respect to the Bank leading up to Harbor View Road. We have sent a partition sign by not only the housing association residents by also by the privately owned to Crest only to have spiky plants put just off our path which cut our children when playing, then for them to be cut down by someone. The meadow flowers!!!!! |( Stinging nettles and dandelions!!!) will only be cut twice a year even though the rest it maintained fortnightly.

    I have contact the local MP Gethan Vaughen. Who live’s in the well maintained properties, has no success in supporting our on going battle with Crest. I would be more than happy to provide our documentation and e-mails if you are prepared to run further with this story.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
