Grant for Sparkle

Grant for Sparkle

Community Update From your Newport City Councillors Subject: A Beacon of Hope: Harper's Inspiring Contribution Similar to my colleague Ray ,I also received an email on behalf of Harper from the sparkle charity . On behalf of my colleague and myself I addressed Langstone Community council regarding Harper's endeavours 🗣️ I can now share a heartwarming update from the Community Council meeting. Harper's dedication and compassion have truly shone through, capturing the hearts of everyone. Harper's exceptional efforts on behalf of Sparkle and in honour of her sister Olivia have not only been recognized but have also been rewarded with a generous £1,000 grant from the Langstone C C for Harper's Sparkle Appeal. However the kindness didn't end there; at a recent event funds were raised through raffles and auctions, for the Motor Neurone Disease charity Which also effects residents and families within our ward this amounted to approximately £250 . This was then raised to £1,000. This remarkable achievement stems from Harper's deep love for her sister, her community, and her commitment to charitable causes. Let's take a moment to celebrate Harper's spirit of giving. Her actions remind us that one person's passion can ignite a wave of generosity and hope. Thank you Harper. You are an inspiration to us all 👏👏👏 My Email response sent below prior to the council meeting .⬇️ Subject: Re: 7-year-old girl from Langstone running to save children's charity #Support for Harper's 5k Dear Georgia Thomas, Thank you for reaching out and sharing the inspiring story of Harper's dedication to supporting Sparkle, a charity that clearly has a profound impact on the lives of many children and families, including her sister Olivia. I am genuinely moved by Harper's initiative at such a young age, and it is a testament to the spirit of our community in Langstone. I will certainly bring this initiative to the attention Langstone Community Council also I will explore ways in which to support and promote Harper's 5k run. The cause is noble, and it deserves all the attention and assistance it can get. Harper's story is indeed a beacon of hope, and I am confident that together, we can make a significant difference. I look forward to the possibility of working with you to ensure that Sparkle continues to provide its invaluable services to those in need.

Langstone Community Council 2024

Published: 19 Feb 24

The Council now has its own Facebook Page, and hopes that residents will continue to express their views by using the Facebook page, attending meetings (where the Council encourages public debate), or by e-mailing me at clerk@langstonecommunitycouncil.org.uk. I will always respond with calm and courtesy. You are all neighbours within what is really quite a small area. The Council never expects to get things right all the time. All it hopes is that comments and criticism are kept within the bounds of courtesy and kindness and in moderate language, in the way one would hope to see on any Facebook site.

20mph limit across Wales will change to 20mph

Published: 12 Jun 23

From the 17th of September 2023, most 30mph limits across Wales changed to 20mph. When you see streetlights, assume that the speed limit is 20mph, unless you see signs that say otherwise. Most affected streets are in residential or built-up areas where people walk and cycle. GoSafe, Police and partners will continue to educate and engage with our communities, and enforce 20mph speed limits, to make roads safer for all of us. 20mph speed limits | Sub-topic | GOV.WALES •Setting exceptions to the 20mph default speed limit for restricted roads | GOV.WALES •Find a proposed exception to a 20mph speed limit | GOV.WALES •Safer at 20mph: Let’s look out for each other | GOV.WALES file:///C:/Users/44777/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/INetCache/Content.Outlook/3N83Y64X/Welsh%20Government%20-%2020mph%20Misinformation%20Fact%20Sheet.pdf Read More...
