COMMUNITY SHOWS LOVE FOR CARE HOME

12243423_10206072935437363_2841774210634561324_nCampaigners wanting to keep a community care home open are showing their support by placing posters saying ‘We Love Cysgod y Gaer’ in homes, shops and cars in Corwen and the surrounding villages.

The posters are designed to show the strength of feeling in the community prior to Denbighshire Council’s public meetings in the town on Monday November 30th as part of their consultation into their In-House Care Provision.

The posters were funded by a successful crowd-funding campaign, where members of the public contributed money towards printing costs.

Mabon ap Gwynfor, who set-up the crowd-funding campaign, said, “The support towards Cysgod y Gaer is amazing. The whole community has come behind this campaign to ensure that this well loved and well run care care home remains open for future generations.

“Denbighshire Council is consulting on the future of in-house care provision and it’s important that as many people as possible make their voices heard. When Council officers come to Corwen on Monday 30th, we want them to see the strength of support with these posters in windows around the whole town and neighbouring communities.

“Its important that people make their voices heard. We know how important Cysgod y Gaer is to this area, but we need to convince the decision makers. Showing the strength of support with these posters and putting our arguments across during this consultation is how we will convince the decision makers that Cysgod y Gaer is not only valued but is also an essential to a healthy, caring, bilingual community.

People wishing to pick up a poster can do so at Glyndwr Gifts or Hughes Newsagents, Corwen.

Denbighshire’s public consultation meetings will be held on 25th November at Rhyl Football Club; 30th November – Canolfan Ni, Corwen; and 14th January at Eirianfa Community Centre, Denbigh, between 2.30-4.00 and 6-7.30pm
