path_care_nov_2016_007.jpgThe council leads a community based volunteer path care group with the aim of clearing some of our public footpaths and mending or replacing infrastructure such as stiles, finger posts, way markers etc. We meet up on the first Tuesday of each month at 10.00am and the session generally lasts around 3 hours. Any new or part time members would be most welcome and if interested please contact John Wright on  07850 937603 email: email      
Care of Our Footpaths
 
Llanbadoc Community Council has produced a series of leaflets on walks in the ward. In conjunction with MCC we wish to put maintenance of our footpaths on a better footing. Several of your councillors will be involved in walking footpaths on a periodic basis to check on necessary maintenance. We would also welcome additional volunteers from the local community who would be prepared to walk defined walks perhaps once every three months and report back on any problems with stiles, overgrown vegetation, etc. Anyone wishing to volunteer to help with this and contribute to caring for our footpaths, please in the first instance contact John Wright as above.


New Information Point at Llanbadoc Church

watercolours_oct_2016_009.jpgAs a council we were able to purchase the listed Telephone kiosk at Llanbadoc Island from BT earlier this year for £1. As a community council we do not have a central meeting place in which we can display information relevant to our wards, so we have decided to trial using the telephone box as our community information hub. So during the summer the telephone box had a makeover, replacement panes were installed and brambles were removed from inside and around the kiosk. The kiosk was painted by an intrepid band of councillors, in post office red and one of our residents has kindly installed a set of shelves. The council has published seven walk leaflets and these are all available in the telephone box or can be downloaded from our website. A notice board will be available for information pertaining to the area. Please contact us if you have any information you may wish to display (see the contacts section). 


Public Access Defibrillators

Heart defibrillators available for emergency public use in the case of cardiac arrest are available in several locations in the Usk area, including The Three Salmons Hotel Usk ( 24 hour access), Usk Primary School (school hours only), Usk Rugby Club, MCC Offices at The Rhadyr Usk, and the Old dis-used phone box in Llandenny Village.
When a 999-call is made to the Welsh Ambulance Service to attend a cardiac arrest, the service can tell you the location of the nearest defibrillator. You can then use the defibrillator to try and resuscitate the patient whilst the ambulance service vehicle is making its way to the call.
