Cambrian Community – Feb 12 Newsletter
The Cambrian Community Association was set up in October 1999 for the purpose of fostering, promoting and preserving a community spirit for the residents of Cambrian Road, Cambrian View, Cheyney Road, Gladstone Road and Granville Road.
We would like to extend this to include you!
One of the original purposes of the association was to organise a summer festival in the millennium year; after which it was to establish a rolling programme of community activities for all ages that would develop links to support more isolated residents and generate an income to support our main events.
The next main focus of the association is to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
We plan to hold a Jubilee Festival on Sunday 3rd June, along with other assorted activities on Monday 4th June.
Some funding is available but in order to pay for the festival we are planning the following series of fundraising events:
We recently held a very successful Barn Dance where excellent instruction and live music provided great entertainment and exercise for all!
Up and coming events include:
A Classical Music Evening – Saturday 25th February, 7.30pm to be held at 84 Cambrian View. This will be a wonderful opportunity to listen to some classical music played by talented local musicians. You will enjoy a lovely glass of fizz on arrival, followed by a shared light supper. Smart dress required.
Tickets £10 each, available from Mustique and Cake Fairies.
Wine Tasting Evening – Saturday 24th March, 7.30pm, to be held in the Scout Hut, Tower Road – come and sample delicious ‘New World’ wines, accompanied by some informative guidance from our local wine ‘expert’! A fun light-hearted event where everyone’s opinion counts!
Tickets £12.50 each, available from Mustique and Cake Fairies.
A Final Event – Saturday 28th April. We would like to hold one more fundraising event before the Jubilee celebration; suggestion for this event would be most welcome. Please make your suggestions directly to association members.
QUEEN’S DIAMOND JUBILEE.
The main focus of the Cambrian Community Association is currently the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration. Linked together with the Garden Quarter we would like to organise an exciting, whole community festival commencing on Sunday 3rd June starting the festivities with the national event of the Big Lunch, which we have been part of in previous years.
Details of where the festival is to be held are yet to be finalized.
Other activities are being considered to take place over the celebration weekend; again we would value ideas, suggestions and offers of practical help.
For further information on any of the details in this newsletter, please contact the CCA Chairman, Roy Hughes on 07980744461 or Suzi Pollard on 01244 399940.

Subject: Chester Wastewater Treatment Works
Chester Wastewater Treatment Works (WwTW) – 14th October 2011
On behalf of Dwr Cymru / Welsh Water, I must again apologise for any inconvenience that our treatment works is causing to the local residents in the Chester area, and stress that we have actions and activities ongoing to reduce the disturbance being caused.
Today, I have made enquiries on progress of the actions to reduce the odours associated with our treatment works:-
Odour Control – Status of the repairs to the one faulty Odour Control Unit :
- Approval has been given for the work to be undertaken and we expect this to be done shortly, as soon as a date is available, I will update you all.
- The Operator’s daily inspection includes a visual check to ensure the equipment is operating correctly (ie liquid is witnessed dripping, not just pump operated).
3 Primary Tanks
- To reduce retention time in the tanks (and hence reduce generation of odour), we are now running on 2 tanks.
Imports of sludge from other sites:
- Chester WwTW is only accepting sludge from 2 nearby treatment works (all other imports have been halted) – this is a significant reduction on the works’ capacity and usual activity.
- This is to facilitate sludge treatment and I can confirm that the temporary mobile drum thickener is on site and fully operational.
Please do pass any odour related complaints to us, and you are welcome to forward this progress summary to any interested parties. I will provide you all with a further update next week.
Finally, and again I must reiterate our commitment to improve the situation for the people of Chester.
