Welcome to the Cwmllynfell Community Council website. We hope that you will find it useful in providing you with information about the Council and the activities and services that are available in the area.
- The next meeting of the Council is on Thursday 21st September2017 at 6.30pm at Cwmllynfell Hall. The agenda for the meeting will be found on the Library page.
Cwmllynfell Community Council is delighted to announce that funding has been secured to replace the dilapidated play equipment in Rhiwfawr.
The design of the new play equipment was chosen by children who live and play in the village of Rhiwfawr through consultations that were held in February, and all their hard work has paid off. A total of £21,678 of funding has been secured that will bring back to life the popular play area within the village.
This has been made possible through two successful grant applications. A total of £21,678 has been awarded by WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund and Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council East Pit Opencast Community Benefit Fund.
WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community projects from funds donated by FCC Environment through the Landfill Communities Fund.
Joe Newby, WREN Grant Manager, said “Good quality recreational facilities, which are accessible to all, are vital for community well-being and this project will ensure that the play area can be enjoyed for years to come. We are delighted to be able to support such a worthwhile project.”
Celtic Energy established, in conjunction with Neath Port Talbot Council, the East Pit Opencast Community Benefit Fund to support those communities most affected by the East Pit Opencast works.It is anticipated that the new play equipment will be installed and ready to use by the end of September.

Rhiwfawr Sport Field Update: A meeting has been held with the contractors due to the dissatisfactory work undertaken. The contractors will be back on site Monday 24th July to act on all the complaints. The Council apologies for the continued inconvenience to the community. It is hoped that this will be resolved as a matter of urgency.
- On the 11th November the community defibrillators were officially launched at both Cwmllynfell Hall and Rhiwfawr Hall. The defibrillators are available for use by members of the public and / or staff in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest.
- Congratulations to all the community members who took advantage of the free training on how to use the defibrillators. If there is sufficient interest in the future the Council will consider running the courses again.
- Please note that Rhiwfawr Park is not closed. Only the clatterbridge is out of order. The Council has held a community consultation to find out what play equipment the community would like. The next stage is to get the ideas designed and costed so that grant applications can be made for the replacement of the existing equipment. The play equipment will not be removed until suitable replacement equipment has been sourced.
