Darpariaeth chwarae meddal

 

Nid oedd meysydd chwarae’r Cyngor yn darparu ar gyfer y plantos ieuengaf a dyna pam y cyflwynwyd y syniad o ddarpariaeth chwarae meddal am ddim yn y Bandstand i'r Pwyllgor.

 

Tybiwyd ei fod yn syniad da a'r Pwyllgor Cyllid i edrych ar gostau.

 

Soft play provision

 

The Council’s playgrounds did not cater for the youngest toddlers which is why the idea of free soft play provision in the Bandstand was presented to the Committee.

 

It was thought to be a good idea and the Finance Committee to look at costs.

Dathlu Esquel trwy enwi rhan o’r dref

 

Gan fod gan Kronberg a St Brieuc barc a ffordd wedi'u henwi er anrhydedd iddynt, roedd Partneriaeth Esquel yn awyddus i weld datblygiad tebyg i Esquel. Cyflwynwyd syniadau amrywiol:

 

  • Ardal yr orsaf – Plaza Esquel
  • Rhodfa'r Gogledd – Rhodfa Esquel
  • Datblygiadau newydd yn yr harbwr
  • Y bryn rhwng y prom a Rheilffordd Craig Glais
  • Safle gwylio ym Mharc Natur Penglais

 

Cynghorwyr i feddwl am syniadau erbyn y Pwyllgor Rheolaeth Cyffredinol nesaf

Celebrate Esquel by naming part of the town

 

As both Kronberg and St Brieuc had a park and road named in their honour the Esquel Partnership was keen to see a similar development for Esquel.  Various ideas were presented:

 

  • The station area – Plaza Esquel
  • North Parade – Rhodfa Esquel
  • Harbour developments
  • The hill between the prom and Cliff Railway
  • Viewing site in Parc Natur Penglais
