Don't miss out on a chance to save money with Cyd Cymru
Gwynedd residents have less than a week left to register their interest in the Cyd Cymru national scheme with the closing date on Monday, 2 March 2015.
By drawing households together, Cyd Cymru – which is supported by Gwynedd Council – can negotiate for cheaper energy bills on behalf of all who register.
Over 1800 households in Gwynedd have already registered their interest by visiting the Cyd Cymru website: www.cydcymru-energy.com or by calling 0800 093 5902.
Cyd Cymru will then contact those who have registered in March with a firm offer. If you decide to accept the offer – and change your electricity and/or gas supplier – help will be readily available. If, however, you decide not to go ahead, there will be no obligation on you to accept the offer.
Councillor Peredur Jenkins, Gwynedd Council’s Cabinet Member for Resources, said:
“There is much truth in the saying about unity in strength. It is therefore very pleasing to see a common sense plan that enhances our ability as customers in Wales to achieve the best possible price from the big companies and achieve significant savings for the people of Gwynedd.”
Councillor Eirwyn Williams, the local member for Criccieth on the Council and a keen advocate of the scheme, added:
“Thanks to Cyd Cymru, those who had already joined the scheme saved around £185 on average on their electricity and gas bills in 2014. These days, when many people worry before switching their heating on, every penny counts, and such a saving would surely be of great help to families here in Gwynedd.”
The Cyd Cymru campaign is financed by the Welsh Government and supported by councils across the country. For more information or to register your interest, go to the Cyd Cymru website: www.cydcymru-energy.com or phone 0800 093 5902.

Housing and Language
FELINHELI RESIDNETS PLANNING TO INFLUENCE LOCAL HOUSING SUPPLY
Felinheli Community Council are working closely with a local language group to focus on practical steps that the whole community can take to ensure that the housing supply in their village reflects the needs of people who grew up in the Felinheli, work locally and wish to bring their own children up in the community.
As a practical measure Grŵp Iaith y Felinheli in association with Felinheli Community Council are organising an open meeting to identify projects that will increase local influence over the supply of housing available in Felinhlei in future. The meeting, open to everyone in Felinheli, will be held at 7.00 p.m. on Tuesday evening, March 3rd at Felinheli Primary School. Simultaneous translation will be available.
Some ideas already suggested have been the establishment of a local housing trust. Such a trust would use locally raised finance to buy and improve housing in the village. The housing wold be rented to people who have links to the village, wish to remain in the area but are unable to gain a footing on the local housing ladder.
Cllr Sian Gwenllian, an active member of the Grŵp Iaith y Felinheli said “affordable and suitable housing, reflecting the needs of local people and the local economy are vital for a village like Felinheli”. She went on to explain “influencing the supply of housing in the village to reflect the needs of people who work in the area as well as those who wish to stay close to their roots will underpin a coherent and sustainable community”.
Guest speakers invited to the meeting will explain how other communities within Gwynedd and beyond have worked in partnership with housing organisations and land owners to ensure that local needs have influenced the supply of housing rather than those of the open market.
Garage owner helps cash-strapped playgroup
A local businessman is supporting the Appeal for money for Cylch Meithrin Y Felinheli (reported in the Herald on Feb 12.)
Kevin Wyn Jones from Central Garage in the middle of the village is offering to donate £5 to the Cylch for every MOT that he carries out from March 1st till May 31st.
"I read about the financial problems that were facing the Cylch in the Herald and got in touch with Cllr Sian Gwenllian to offer my help," said Kevin who has been running Central Garage for the last 30 years.
"From St David’s Day onwards, I will be donating £5 per MOT to the Cylch towards their fund-raising. Customers will pay £35 for the MOT with £5 of this going to the Cylch.
“I have run my business in the village for 30 years now and have had fantastic support from locals. This is where I started in business and this is where I still am today! I felt this was one way of giving something back to the community.
“It would be a huge shame to see the Cylch having to close due to short-term financial problems, and I hope my gesture of support will help them as they move towards their £10,000 target."
Chairman of Cylch Meithrin Y Felinheli, Ceri Ann Owen, said: “We are very grateful to Kevin and Central Garage for their kind offer. Having the support of a local business is a huge boost to us, showing that the playgroup is widely appreciated.
We have already had a few successful events with the Valentine's party raising £1,300 (doubled with match funding from HSBC) and tickets for the Curry Night this weekend have long sold out.
"The whole village is rallying around and I'm optimistic that we will reach our goal, although there's a long way to go. Every penny helps.
We have set up an account where individuals can donate on-line.
