Well done, Cilcain Young Farmers!

They played an ace! Not only did they raise the funds to buy a defibrillator for the village, but they have also now organised defibrillator training sessions for anyone in Cilcain who wants to sign up. 17 people arrived for the first defibrillator training session on Tuesday evening – a great turnout! Many thanks to Kay for running the session, to Graham who had his arm twisted to help out – and to Andy of the Young Farmers for all his hard work. Two more sessions will take place next Sunday (3rd February), the first starting at 3.00 pm and the second at 4.00 pm. A few places are still available, so get in touch with Andy Hughes by email, message or phone to book your place.
Andy’s contact details are: Tel: 07933610611 or email:
Many thanks to Gwen Hardman for this update and great photos!

A bench for Bob, “The Cilcain Postie”

Bob Taylor was Cilcain’s ‘Postie’ for 30 years and, during that time, he used to enjoy having his morning tea/breakfast break on one of the benches by the side of the bowling green in the village, weather permitting.
Sadly, he recently passed away following his fight with cancer and his wife, Lynn, asked if the family could put a bench in his memory at the side of the green.
Last Saturday, 26th January, Bob’s family, friends and people from the village gathered together to remember him as the bench was put into position, and to pay their respects to a lovely man who was very much part of our community and its history.
Lynn has given her permission for us to post these photographs.
