The Open Spaces Society, Britain’s oldest national conservation body, is delighted that the path to Morfa Beach, Longlands Lane at Margam in Neath Port Talbot, has been saved from closure. This follows a public inquiry last month at which the objectors included the society, the Save Morfa Beach campaign group, the Ramblers and many individuals.
The inquiry inspector, Mrs Helen Slade, ruled that Longlands Lane (footpath 92) should not be extinguished. She said ‘It is clear from the evidence that footpath 92 has been used by the public extensively in the past, and is still used, to gain access to Margam Sands, or Morfa Beach as it is also known.’ She recognised that stopping up the footpath would ‘cause considerable distress to a large number of people’. She noted that footpath 92 is suitable for push chairs and has a good surface for walkers.
The new site provides a valuable resource of information on iridology, including an insight into research-based articles and patient case notes.
Marks and colours in the iris reveal strengths and weaknesses of a person’s inherited and developed constitution, as each organ has a ‘neurological blueprint’ that creates an individual pattern within the eye. There is much interest and current research throughout the world into Iridology.
Iridology has been practised at The Herbal Clinic since it was established in 1977. Renowned herbalist Ifanca James practised for many years before passing the family business and traditions to her son Meilyr James.
At the clinic one gains a sense of the deep level of commitment to the patient, with many levels of support provided throughout treatment. An Iridology consultation can be booked independently or as part of a complete system of healthcare, including Western herbal medicine and acupuncture.
The Open Spaces Society, Britain's oldest national conservation body, welcomes Bridgend County Borough Council's decision to refuse planning permission on land at Moor Lane, Porthcawl, in south Wales.
The society objected because Moor Lane is popular with walkers, runners, horse riders and cyclists, and these vulnerable road-users could not have continued to enjoy this narrow country lane.
The Open Spaces Society,(1) the leading pressure-group for common land, has sent a strong objection to plans to build 16 wind turbines with associated infrastructure on Mynydd y Gwair and adjoining commons, eight miles north of Swansea.
RWE npower renewables has planning permission for the development but, because it is to be sited on registered common land, the developer needs the additional consent of Welsh ministers for works on, and exchanges of, common land.(2)
The Open Spaces Society has objected to the company’s proposal to swap land in the heart of the common with inferior land on the edge, so that the land on which the turbines and associated access track, electricity transformers, crane hardstandings, construction compound and other structures would be sited is taken out of the common. In addition, the company has sought consent to construct a road and temporary fencing on the common.
Ten young people and one group were each awarded a special High 5 by Swans star Leon Britton in an event organised by Swansea Council.
Leilah Hughes, Samantha and Claire Mead, Aaron Davies, Alexandra Atkins, Thomas Fisher, William Bowcutt, Joseph Horton, Sophie and Shaun Roberts and the group Educating Elders were all named as the inspirational winners of the awards.
There is to be a public inquiry into these proposed path-changes, to be held at the Orangery in Margam Country Park, from 10am on Tuesday 5th November. The public is welcome and the
inquiry is expected to last four days.
To celebrate his achievements, Ben was called to see the Monmouthshire Mayor, Jeana Hall, who kindly presented him with a frame of his biggest win of the year, the World Individual Championships. Ben and his pony Merlin travelled in July to Copenhagen, Denmark to win the title in great style over French rider Paul Barreu, who took the reserve spot.
On Wednesday 16th October Ben visited the mayor in Shire Hall Monmouth to be presented with a frame that was made by local framer John Viveash. It was a great way to end a brilliant
year and 'Framed by John' from Lewis's Lane Abergavenny have produced a frame
that capitalises a memory of a lifetime.
