GAG News Bulletin 8 (May 2017)
Street Scene Liaison Meeting with County Council.
Now elections and reorganization have been completed the Street Scene Meeting, recently postponed, is to be reconvened. GAG is keen to discuss street trees under the management of Ceredigion Highways.
The new trees in North Parade are a good example of cooperation between the WG’s Transport Network Management (formerly Trunk Roads Agency) providing the money for the work and Ceredigion’s Parks and Gardens (Jon Hadlow providing the expertise in planting big trees).
NRW has published a Ceredigion Urban Tree Cover survey. The report includes recommendations for the local authority. GAG would like to discuss these possibilities.
Coed Aber Trees
Some of the trees that were failing along Boulevard St Brieuc were removed and given specialist care in the county nurseries. This was successful and the trees, now thriving, have been planted along Plascrug Avenue.
Aberystwyth and Llanbadarn Fawr Tree Trail
This is nearing completion and will soon be in the hands of a graphic designer.
A separate inventory of commemorative trees in town is being considered

GAG News Bulletin (March 2017 )
This is ongoing: route decided, walk description now finalised, just the map to be finished, and interesting facts about a few selected trees to be completed. Then it is off to the designer/printer for leaflet production.
All projects however small can benefit the environment for people and wildlife.
A recent planting of 125 wildflower plugs in a grassy slope in Poplar Row is a good example. Any suggestions for similar sites in Aberystwyth?
Volunteers are always welcome to help/be part of a rota to maintain the Nant free of litter.
Litter clearance events are advertised on the GAG Facebook.
A new Moth Survey of Constitution Hill/Craig-lais has been completed. This will be available on the GAG website.
Penparcau Community Forum
Bee friendly flowers are to be planted in May.
A report of the first year’s results from ‘The Nature of our Village project’ by Chloe Griffiths is available on the GAG website More Information page.
GAG Newsletter 20 will be out soon.
