Postscript: The meeting was for councillors only. Although why have one I do not know. They will not be persuading me or any others from Chester Rd or Corwen Rd that Warren Hall is good for Penyffordd village environment.
No mention was made of this meeting upfront. Nigel Jones, Clerk to The Penyffordd Community Council is quoted that I had been aware of the date of the meeting . This is a lie.

TWO callous conmen ransacked a pensioner’s bedroom and stole money after posing as ‘waterboard officials’.
Now local councillor Cindy Hinds is warning all elderly or vulnerable people in Penyffordd, near Mold, to be on their guard.

Charles Hughes is Director of Engineering for Flintshire County Council. I am of the opinion that Flintshire Highways which is part of Engineering have plans for Chester Road to remain a trunk road in all but name. The meeting was held at Cllr David Williams' house.
Cllr Cindy Hinds attended the meeting.
The removal of yellow lines outside the Post Office was discussed. Charles Hughes reels off one of his stock of excuses on why he can't help. This time its "the fire engine will not be able to get through".
The yellow lines were removed outside the chapel what about the fire engine there in Hawarden Rd. What about the Vounog that has no yellow lines. All three roads exactly the same, ex trunk roads.
Chester Rd remains the second by-pass of Penyffordd. I think the word is de facto.
Flintshire County Council do triple back somersaults to get Croes Atti development off the ground when the real fear of rat runs is raised by residents. Chester Rd is a rat run. Charles Hughes currently refuses to do anything about our daily rat run.
Excuse No 1 doesn't hold either. This is the " we have no money left". Kate Forrester of The Evening Leader reported early in the year that FCC has nearly £60 million at its disposal to spend on whatever.

Whilst standing in the garden (Friday 18.20 am) in my DJ last night waiting to go to a charity event I looked up to see a red car brake heavily, skid, hit the kerb and mount it, which wrecked his wheel, deflating the tyre. The car mounted the kerb 20 feet from a bus stop.
Then I saw a small girl aged about 8 or 9 with long hair pedaling up Penymynydd Rd on her green bike. The young girl had just missed serious injury or death by a very short margin.
The young girl had cycled across Chester Road without looking into the path of the red car which was doing about 30 mph.
The young man who was visibly shaken for some time after the event, his lightning reactions prevented very serious injuries or death to this young girl. The young girl carried on pedaling up the path on Penymynydd Rd too embarrassed or shocked to stop.
His mates who were in two cars then set about changing the wheel whilst he looked on still a state of shock
Due to the number of speeding vehicles through our village statistically its just a matter of time until someone is seriously injured or killed. Whilst taking pictures of the kerb damage this morning I am stopped by a resident of Penyffordd who knew about the incident. He then regaled me with near misses he had witnessed.
Chester Rd a major route to school is an accident waiting to happen.

The woman from Safe Speed wants locking up for saying speed cameras do not work.
Many millions of drivers have altered their driving habits through communities due to gaining points from speed cameras.
I await Arrive Alive to deal with the 1000 odd speeders through Chester Rd everyday.

Every other car racing through the village with loud exhausts. A motorcycle doing 80 mph showing off to his mates outside the Penyffordd British Legion, with the modern fashion accessory a very loud illegal exhaust.
They have sat in the Penyffordd Institute each month with cars speeding passed, they oblivious.
I've told him his block vote in the last local elections a disgrace.
Flintshire County Council's current plans for Chester Rd is two or three times more vehicles.
They are a disgrace.

North Wales Police continue to ignore this issue.
Postscript. After many months of waiting for action by North Wales Police against speeding through our community I have given up and have made a formal complaint against Inspector Oldfield to the Professional Standards Department, North Wales Police Authority.

Links to the walk are here. The walk we did was from Ffrith to Bwlchgwyn and back again. It's 2.5 hours, leg and arm protection needed. It will be muddy in places. By doing this walk this way you do the climb on the way up instead of the way back. One of the tracks was used to transport lead ore from Minera to Ffrith in Roman times.
note. The waterfall is not on the marked route on the map link (please ask)

I have fired off a letter to the Leader with a CC to North Wales Police. I have had an email back from North Wales Police they are not best pleased. They rightly condemn me over insensitivity to the bikers family.
We have this issue where many bikers are being killed yet any criticism is not liked.
Motorcyclists will continue to die until they are fully controlled. If smoking can be stopped in public places speeding can be stopped on North Wales roads.
As I have said to North Wales Police on current form the next motorcyclist will die within a week.
I wrote a letter to The Leader as last weekend has seen Penyffordd By Pass being used as a 120 mph race track with illegal exhausts to boot.
