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.
A further public drop-in session is being held on Tuesday 27th March from 4.00 to 7.00pm in the Cricket Club on Crofft-y-Genau Road, St Fagans. Representatives from the developers, Redrow, will be on hand to answer any questions. Please come along.
Elections were due to be held on Thursday 4th May this year to establish the membership of the Community Council for the next five years. However, only six valid nominations were received and, as a consequence, no election took place. There were accordingly three vacancies on the new Council that Members have now filled by co-option. The co-opted Members are Mrs Catherine Edwards of Parc Rhydlafar, Ms Abigail Gaughan of Westfield Park and Ms Linda Manley from St Fagans Village.
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.

'Cuppa with a Copper'
