Council Meeting - Bronllys Hospital

There's always a space in the Council meeting for questions from the public - and these can be anything at all.
On Monday night, it was something else that added to the general atmosphere of doom.
A lady stood up and asked if the council had heard the latest news about Bronllys Hospital. She had brought along a glossy document, and explained that there had been a meeting on 16th December launching an initiative to turn the hospital site into "Bronllys Health Park". The document talked about forest walks, and outdoor classrooms, and it all sounded lovely, until the lady noticed that there was no mention of the hospital itself in all these plans.

So, there are going to be "drop-in sessions", at very short notice, and on weekdays so anyone with a full time job can't get to them.
They are: 14th Jan, Parish Hall, Hay, 3pm to 5pm
17th Jan, Bronllys Mansion House (on the hosptital site) 9.30am to 11.30am
20th Jan, Llyswen Village Hall, 10am to noon
20th Jan, Town Hall, Talgarth, 2.30pm to 4.30pm
followed by a public meeting at Talgarth Town Hall on 29th Jan from 6pm to 8pm.

The council hadn't been informed about any of this, and Bronllys Council had no idea about it either. Thanks to this lady, posters are going to be distributed so residents are at least aware of the meetings.

There is also going to be a meeting of the Powys Health and Well Being Group at Tomatitos on 7.30pm at Tomatitos. This is a group for local people who are concerned about health issues.
