Celebrating Dwynwen: Welsh patron saint of lovers
Felinheli will be celebrating Santes Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of lovers with a special evening at the Victoria Hotel.
On Friday, January 23,local author and media expert Phil Stead will host a Quiz evening followed by the Vic's lovely warming lobs cows.
"Every year the village celebrates Santes Dwynwen in some way and this year the Vic is the chosen location," said one of the organisers, Felinheli Councillor Sian Gwenllian.
"We have all fallen in love ( pardon the pun) with the story of Dwynwen and this year again I hope that villagers will turn out to support our activity. The event is organised by Plaid Cymru Y Felinheli. Tickets are £5 and the evening starts at 7 p.m."
Who is Dwynwen? See link.
Coffee Morning Cancer Research Wales, Felin Sgwrsio, Saturday Jan 17, 11.30 till 1.30. Warm welcome to all.
Councillor Sian Gwenllian’s report Jan 2015
Happy New Year/Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!
1) I'm delighted that the iconic Menai Straits will be kept free from pylons in the vicinity of Y Felinheli,. Local people were united in opposition and I wish to thank them for supporting me and the No Pylons campaign.
However, we must ensure that there won't be any pylons elsewhere either. Whilst the Grid have said that the cables would be 'on or under the sea bed' of the Menai itself, they have not spelt out what happens on the mainland in the Bangor area as the electricity is transmitted from the banks of the Straits to the sub- station at Pentir. That's why we need to continue to fight for an under-sea option from the North of Anglesey to Dee-side. That would ensure that the whole area is free from new pylons. But god news for us locally!
Stolen Bikes - Trem Y Foel
North Wales Police are appealing for information following a theft from a shed in the Trem y Foel, Felinheli recently.
The incident occurred sometime between 17:30 Friday 09/01/15 and 09:30 Saturday 10/01/05. Two CLAUDE BUTLER bikes were taken from the shed. If you noticed anything suspicious, or have any information relating to this incident please contact North Wales Police by dialling 101 quoting reference RC15004538. Alternatively, you can provide information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers Wales on 0800 555 111. North Wales Police would like to urge residents to always report suspicious activity to them at the earliest opportunity.
NO PYLONS ACCROSS MENAI STRAITS
Message from Cllr Sian Gwenllian: I have just received a letter from National Grid. They propose a new overhead line (pylons) from Anglesey to Pentir. BUT part of it will be ‘on or beneath the bed of the Menai Strait.’ I don’t have details of where exactly the under-sea crossing will be and await further details from the Grid. This is excellent news for Felinheli and the surrounding area and means NO PYLONS across the Straits, which was the view expressed by local people. However as a member of the No Pylons Campaign chaired by Hywel Williams, MP, I am extremely disappointed that the under-sea option from North Anglesey to Dee-side seems to been dismissed altogether by the Grid.
Here is the letter:
As a registered user, we wanted to update you on the work we need to do in North Wales.
Following careful consideration of all the feedback we received during our first stage of consultation, and a detailed review of all of the different connection options, we are proposing a new overhead line to connect Horizon’s Wylfa Newydd power station on Anglesey to our network. We are also proposing to put the cables on or beneath the bed of the Menai Strait and underground within the Anglesey Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
We are proposing to make the connection within the Orange route corridor we identified, which broadly follows the existing line on the island that connects Wylfa to our existing substation at Pentir, Gwynedd. We are now doing further work to identify where the connection might go, while carefully considering the effects on communities and the environment and how we can best reduce them.
Further information about our proposals and the options we’ve looked at is available on our project website which you can visit at www.nationalgrid.co.uk/northwalesconnection
Alternatively, please contact our Community Relations Team by return email or on 0800 990 3567 (9am-5pm, Monday – Friday) who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water trialling new pumps at Y Felinheli Sewerage Pumping Station.
Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water has been trialling a new pumping system at Y Felinheli sewerage pumping station.
The new pump technology has a unique design and has proven to significantly reduce blockages. The new permanent pumps and equipment will be installed soon and the company will be investing in excess of £60,000 in this upgrade.
Desilting has taken place recently at Y Felinheli pumping station and we are currently investigating seawater infiltration at the Harbour pumping station to see if this could be contributing to the odour problem.
As we move forward teams are continuing to investigate and monitor the odour problems at Y Felinheli pumping station. Once the investigations have been completed recommendations will be fed back to the company and a decision will be taken on what the next steps will be.
As a “not-for-profit company” Welsh Water does not have shareholders, and any financial surpluses are reinvested in the business for the benefit of customers.

Raising money for cancer Research by trekking in Nepal
Two young people from Y Felinheli will be visiting Nepal to raise money for charity and are holding a coffee morning in the village on Jan 17 as part of their campaign. There will be a warm welcome for everyone at Y Felin Sgwrsio, Y Felinheli on Saturday morning, January 17 to raise money for Cancer Research Wales.
In March 2015 Nia Jenkins and Carwyn Dafydd will venture up to the 'base camp' of the world’s highest mountain, Everest.
“The trip will take place over 13 days and we will have to walk up to a height of 5,354m!” said Nia.
“The oxygen level will drop to 40% at this height and so we are busy training for March! We go up Snowdon and other mountains of Snowdonia on a regular basis to raise the fitness levels and Carwyn plays football for Y Felinheli Football Club and trains regularly.
“We will be making the trek to raise money for Cancer Research Wales. We aim to raise £7550 and we have chosen this particular charity because Carwyn’s Dad died of cancer 16 years ago. All the money raised goes to the charity and we are paying the travelling costs out of our own pockets.
“We have raised thousands of pounds already and are getting nearer the target. We raised £2,000 in a 5 aside football tournament in Caernarfon last year. Thanks to all who have contributed so far and there will be further opportunities for people to support us by coming to our coffee morning on Jan 17. Or you can donate on-line through this link
The Community Council has decided to inform Gwynedd Council Planning that it is opposed to developing Cae Fodol near the Faenol roundabout as a site for permanent living units. This is due to a large number of planning reasons, including that the site is outside development boundaries and that the site is not suitable on a number of grounds. Around 30 residents came to the meeting in the memorial Hall tonight.
