A True Neighbourly Gesture 

St Arvans has many residents who are keen gardeners and their frontages are lovely to see at this time of year. One prominent corner plot that always comes up trumps is that of Mrs. Ann Weaver who lives at The Finney on Grange Road. She receives a lot of compliments but there is one garden enthusiast who went a step further. He (or she?) left a note on Ann's wall, saying that her lovely garden always gave him/her 'a lift' when he/she passed every day.

Attached to the note was a box of chocolates.

So, from Mrs. Weaver, a big 'thank you' and, you can be sure that she will continue to give passers by real pleasure from her beautiful plot and hard work.

Dr. Alec Davies

Members of the Council wish to express their condolences to Councillor Davies and her lovely family on the death of Alec. He was not only a devoted husband, an inspirational father, grandfather and a loyal friend to many but he was a real gentleman to all who knew him in this community. And many people did know him because of his career in medicine locally and the care he showed to his patients. However, to many friends and neighbours, he will be remembered for the engaging, honest & sincere way he showed how important you and your conversation was to him. As his son said at the funeral, 'He was an exceptional human being'. What an amazing legacy to leave behind, such lovely memories in so many people's minds. if you would like to read the full eulogy, please click here
