The St Athan Community Council strongly supports our wonderful NHS, emergency services, our local shops/businesses and the community itself, who are staying safe as well as those supporting their neighbours that may be more vulnerable.
For those in our community that need some extra help and have no other way of picking up essential items during this unprecedented situation we have a number you can call 07826 799604 during normal office hours 9am to 5pm
Please call this number if you need help or can offer to help as a volunteer.
However, this is only for local help, if you are unwell you need to ring the emergency services, NHS 111 or seek current advice from NHS https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
During these times it is most important to watch out for our neighbour, if you are able. This will ensure no one slips through the net.
Remember not everyone is on the Internet, so please pass on these details via a phone call.

Equipment will be supplied.
Look forward too seeing you on the 14th!
A massive THANK YOU to all the litter picking people, who voluntarily took time out and joined in today’s Community Council led litter pick, in St Athan village. In just over 1 and a half hours, an amazing total of 6 sacks of rubbish where collected from Rock Road and Rectory Road.
As a small token of thanks, everybody was treated to tea and biscuits at the end of the litter pick.
It would be great to see even more litter picking people at our next litter pick, which will be held in Flemington on Saturday 12th October 19, from 10am to 12noon
Remembrance Sunday, which this year falls on 11th November, is a day for the nation to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
This year has special significance – on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, 100 years ago, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare during the First World War.
In St Athan the service starts at St Athan Church at 10.00am and then moves up to the monument at 10.45 for a wreath laying ceremony.
The annual Christmas lights switch on will take place on Sunday 2nd December – and a fun packed afternoon is planned. More information to follow.
The application forms are now available out for the very popular Senior Citizens Christmas Party at The St Athan Community Centre – to reserve your place please send in your forms ASAP.
Forms can be obtained from Londis the St Athan Chemist or contact us
The Vale of Glamorgan is holding a consultation day at The Gathering Place, St Athan to look at how active travel can be promoted in the area. This is in line with the Welsh Governments Active Travel (Wales) Act.
The Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 is landmark Welsh law to make it easier for people to walk and cycle in Wales. The Act requires Welsh ministers to publish annual reports on the amount of active travel journeys are made in Wales. The annual report also updates on progress of the Act’s implementation since it began on 25 September 2014.The Act – which is considered to be a world first – makes it a legal requirement for local authorities in Wales to map and plan for suitable routes for active travel, and to build and improve their infrastructure for walking and cycling every year. It creates new duties for highways authorities to consider the needs of walkers and cyclists and make better provision for them. It also requires both the Welsh Government and local authorities to promote walking and cycling as a mode of transport
However, this would also be a good chance to meet the team that can help with local road safety issues, which in the St Athan Community Council consultation earlier this year was a big draw back to residents walking and cycling in the area.
For your information – link to Active Travel website which may be useful prior to the consultation in The Gathering Place St Athan on Monday 11th September 1pm to 6.30pm.
