Important
 
A Flood Warning has been issued by Natural Resources Wales for the Tidal Area at Borth.
  
Flooding is expected for the area from Ynyslas to Brynowen including the low lying land and properties between the sea defences and the River Leri and may occur from 05:00am onwards on Monday morning.
 
Immediate action required.
 
Winds are forecast to be force 8 from a South West Direction. Large waves combined with a spring tide are likely to cause issues at exposed locations.
 
- Act now to protect yourself and your property.
 
- Avoid beaches, promenades, coastal footpaths and roads.
 
- If it's safe to do so, block doors with flood boards or sandbags and cover airbricks and other ventilation holes.
 
- Move family, pets and valuables to a safe place.

 - Keep a flood kit ready including a torch, batteries, fully charged mobile phone, warm clothes, water, food and any prescription medicines you may need.
 
- If it's safe, make sure your neighbours are aware of the situation and offer help to anyone who may need it.
 
- Avoid walking, cycling or driving through flood water.
 
- Turn off gas, electricity and water if your property is about to flood. Never touch an electrical switch if you are standing in water.
 
- Call Floodline on 0345 988 1188 using quickdial 194406 for up-to-date flooding information.
 
Community Flood Wardens have been notified, its always useful to consider those neighbours who are more vulnerable or at risk and let people know of the active flood warning if you are speaking to them.
 
Please let us know anything you think is useful or important,  Jill Hulse on 01970 871256 or 07740 799643 or Mike Willcox on 01970 871245
 
The Natural Resources Wales website contains details of river level and flooding information and can be accessed at http://naturalresources.wales/flooding/?lang=en
 
If you want more information about flooding please phone Floodline on 0345 988 1188 or log onto Floodline Warnings Direct at www.naturalresourceswales.gov.uk.
 
Finally, if you happen to be able to take any photos afterwards of the rocks and sea defences on the beach that would be great, to see how well they faired or any issues, but remember the advice is avoid beaches and promenades during this flood warning taking NO RISK.

Please share any photos here, https://www.facebook.com/BorthCommunityCouncil using the reply option.
 
Do call if you have any concerns or questions many thanks Jill
 
Cllr. Jill Hulse

Y Borth Community Council: Cyngor Cymuned Y Borth 
 
One of the Emergency Plan Coordinators from Borth Community Council attended a Flood Volunteer Event on Thursday 28th January in Llandudno.
 
A very useful day to share experiences, learn about what others are doing and come away with ideas for our emergency plan.
 
Will share feedback with Community Wardens. If you'd like to become a Community Warden - please let us know, there can never be too many!
 
We have a community email group in Ynyslas that has been informally used to send out updates and information periodically.
 
Residents have been remarking that it has been useful to them. There is no reason why the email group can't be extended.
 
As a Community Council, we are conscious that even with information on the website, noticeboards and facebook its often not easy to access these means, an email group may reach a few more people - thereby extending the potential for word of mouth updates to those people that don't access information in any of these ways, or regularly in these ways.
 
 
Thanks
 
Cllr. Jill Hulse

Borth Community Council Newsletter.
  
Borth Community Council will, once again, be keeping the toilets open from 1 November through to 31 March, providing an important all year round facility. 
 
This is part of a three year agreement with Ceredigion County Council. Both the toilets outside the RNLI/Coastguard station and those near the railway station on the High Street will be open for beach users, visitors and those walking the coastal path.
 
Help us keep Borth safe, clean and tidy. 
‘Fly-tipping is the illegal deposit of any waste onto land with no licence to accept it. Only Household Waste Site and Transfer Stations are licensed to accept waste in Ceredigion. Fly-tipping is a serious environmental crime’.  
 
The Ceredigion County Council website provides information on what you should do if you discover fly-tipping www.ceredigion.gov.uk/index.cfm?articleid=17649
 
Borth Community Council has covered the costs of clearing and removing the waste from the Common Land in Borth. An approved waste management service was used. The gates to the Common Land will be locked.
 
100’s of bottles have been dumped at the bottle bank in the car park on several occasions, if the bottle bank is full anyone can phone the number on the side of the container. No sheet glass to be left by the bottle bank please.
 
Cllr. Margaret Griffiths has resigned from Borth Community Council.  We thank her very much for all the many years she has committed to Borth Community Council.  She has been an active and supportive member of Council and her contributions have been much valued.

She will be missed from Council meetings but we will still see her around - actively engaged in many others areas within Borth!
 
Best wishes Margaret,
 
Borth Community Council.
