Playground is open. Please read the Covid19 notices to comply with safely regulations for playground.
The Sewing Group now meet on a Tuesday evening between 7-8pm in an upstairs room and anyone is welcome to join in, whatever their project. Tea/coffee and biscuits available halfway through and cost is £4 a week. This may be reduced as the group grows.
Its not a formal ‘sewing class’, rather a group with a common interest who would enjoy a chat and sharing ideas, and maybe helping someone having problems with something they are making.
I provide a couple of extra sewing machines (an ordinary domestic multi stitch and an overlocker/serger) if anyone would like to use them who doesn’t have one at home.
I would not limit it to actual machine sewing - could be hand sewing, embroidery, patchwork, or anything else!
I look forward to hearing from you and then meeting you at Borth Community Hall in the near future.
Borth Short Mat Bowls Club
Borth short Mat Bowls Club has re-started and is on every Wednesday in Borth Hall from 2.00 to 4.00 p.m.
All you need to bring (if you are not already a Bowler) are some indoor shoes or slippers - if you do not Bowling shoes - and plenty of enthusiasm.
The club is perfect for the experienced or those totally new to Bowls.
Do come and watch and have a cup of tea with us - if you are not sure what it is all about - and see if it for you. You will be most welcome.
We have spare bowls and all you need, if you do not have bowling shoes, are a pair of indoor shoes/slippers or just socks will be fine.
All following club meetings will be each Wednesday from 2.00 to 4.00 p.m. in the Borth Hall and people come whenever they are able - not everyone can manage to come every week. This is very much a "fun" club. We do not play in leagues etc.
Important Note: First Wednesday of each month the group meet from 2.40 to 4.30 (instead of 2.00 to 4.00).
We share the rental cost of the Hall amongst those who come to a session. We make a great cup of tea or coffee too and if you just want to come for a drink, a chat and to watch others play Bowls you will still be very welcome.
Many thanks. Joy, Freda
Rydym yn parhau i weld pobl yn mynd i drybini oherwydd troseddwyr sy'n esgus eu bod yn gweithio i’r banc ac yn dweud bod cyfrif banc person wedi'i gyfaddawdu.
Weithiau, mae'n dilyn neges destun ffug (mae'r dioddefwr yn sylweddoli mai twyll ydyw ac yn dileu'r neges destun).
Fodd bynnag, ddiwrnod yn ddiweddarach mae'r dioddefwr yn derbyn galwad ffôn. Mae'r troseddwr yn esgus ei fod yn gweithio i’r banc ac yn dweud ei fod yn ymwybodol bod yr unigolyn wedi derbyn neges destun ffug, ond mae'r cyfrif banc wedi’i gyfaddawdu rywsut yn awr.
Y cam nesaf yw cael y dioddefwr i symud ei arian i gyfrif 'diogel' – nid yw'r dioddefwr yn ymwybodol, ond cyfrif troseddwr yw'r cyfrif hwn.
Os yw'r dioddefwr yn dweud bod yr ap bancio’n dweud bod y cyfrif yn newydd ac na ellir ei ddilysu, bydd y troseddwr yn dweud mai cyfrif newydd ydyw, ond ei fod yn ddiogel.
Bydd y troseddwr yn aml yn dweud wrth y dioddefwr am ffonio'r rhif ar gefn ei gerdyn banc i wirio hyn – ond mae’n dweud y gallai'r dioddefwr golli ei holl arian gan fod yn rhaid iddo aros i gael ei gysylltu a mynd drwy'r broses ddilysu gydag aelod arall o'r staff bancio.
Mae'r dioddefwr dan bwysau, ac mae’n poeni y bydd yn colli ei arian, felly mae’n trosglwyddo'r arian heb ffonio'r banc.
Nid yw troseddwyr yn poeni pwy maen nhw’n dwyn oddi wrthynt. Busnes ydyw iddyn nhw.
We are continuing to see people falling foul of criminals that pretend to be from the bank and stating that a person’s bank account has been compromised.
Sometimes it follows a fake text message (the victim realises it is a scam and deletes the text).
However, a day later the victim receives a call and the criminals pretend to be from the bank and state that they are aware that the person has received a fake text message, and the bank account has now somehow become compromised.
The next stage is to get the victim to move their money into a ‘safe’ account – the victim is unaware, but this account is a criminal’s account.
If the victim says that the banking app is stating that the account is new and cannot be verified, the criminal (pretending to be the bank) will state that the account has only just been set up, but is safe. They will often tell the victim to phone the number on the back of their bank card to check – but they put in the proviso that the victim may lose all their money as they have to wait to be connected and go through the verification process with another member of the banking staff!
The pressure is on, the victim is worried about losing their money, and so they go ahead and transfer the money without phoning the bank, as they believe they are speaking with a trusted employee of the bank already…
It is a reminder that criminals do not care who they steal from, it is a business.
Gill and I visited the Arboretum yesterday (25 Aug 2021) and the tree is looking really great. The number of statues have increased since my last visit a couple of years ago.
