Love where you live?
Would you be interested in helping to look after the St Fagans community area?
Your Community Council is here to look after the interests of the people who live in St Fagans.
We raise a small amount of money each year to be used to try and improve where you live by organising litter collections, providing flower planters and planting flowers, buying additional salt boxes and litter bins, putting up Xmas lights, etc.
Members of the Council also examine new applications for development and make representations where appropriate and put pressure on Cardiff Council and other organisations to carry out remedial works and improvements to the community area.
There are currently two vacancies on the Council.
If you think this is something that would interest you, why not come to a meeting of the Council – held in the Village Hall on the first Monday of each month at 7.00pm, or contact the Chairman,
Frances Lewis, on 07972 134658, for more information?
A second vacancy has arisen for a Community Councillor in St Fagans, following the resignation of Linda Manley. The initial process for filling this vacancy is explained in this notice.

Keep dogs on a lead!
It's that special time of year when the fields are occupied by pregnant sheep and lambs. The Museum is appealing to dog owners to keep their dogs on leads when going out for a walk in the open countryside. Unfortunately, we've had experiences of dogs off lead worrying sheep that are out in the fields, with some even being injured. Please ensure your dogs are on a lead when in the vicinity of livestock. Thank you.
If you notice any dogs that appear to be worrying the sheep, please phone the Museum on 029 2057 3500.
The police have alerted the Council about a spate of burglaries to local allotments. Please try and ensure any possessions held at an allotment are secure and if you see any suspicious activity please report it to your local police station or phone 101.
Operations to tackle this problem by the police in conjunction with Cardiff Council are continuing with some recent success. More operations are planned over the coming months, but, for obvious reasons, exact details are not made known.
Farmers' Market at the Museum
The Market is held regularly on a Sunday between 10am-4pm. It’s currently held in a temporary marquee at the top of the Museum site near Cilewent Farmhouse whilst the redevelopment works continue. The plan is to relocate the exhibitors to the main building once the works are completed in 2017.
