The AGM of Gorslas Welfare Association was held in St Lleian’s Church Hall, Gorslas on Thursday, 7 June 2018.
Vice chairman Aled Owen reflected on a successful 2017 which concluded with the Fireworks display that followed the Christmas Tree on the square being lit and a visit by Father Christmas to his grotto at Cae Ffair.
Aled thanked members of the committee, the advertisers and everyone else who had contributed to the success of the events, including an excellent carnival, during 2017.
The following officials were elected for 2018:
Chair: Ellis Davies: Vice chair: Kate Griffiths
Secretary: Gareth Jones: Treasurer: Terry Davies MBE
Assistant Treasurer: Angharad Rees
After an update on the development of the new Primary School on Gorslas Welfare Park, members decide not to hold a full carnival in September 2018 as there was uncertainty as to whether or not the land would be available.
Discussions would take place at the next meeting on the type of event that would replace the carnival for the next 2 years. The same would apply to the annual fireworks display which are also held on the park.
Members were looking forward to the new school opening eventually as its facilities would be available for use at future carnivals and other events organised by the Gorslas Welfare Association.
