Inclement weather forecast!

Despite the dry day thus far across many parts of Wales, there is some rain in the forecast at times tonight and over the next few days into the weekend ,which will be good news for many. However, some of the rain is expected to be heavy with perhaps thunder at times.

Latest information indicates the potential for a heavier period of rain during tomorrow afternoon and evening, particularly in western areas of Wales. There may also be some showery thundery downpours during the weekend. There are no weather warnings in place at the moment.

At present any impacts are most likely going to be restricted to poor conditions on the roads with excess standing water and perhaps some flooding in a few places.


Monmouthshire Pollinator Action Plan

pollination_1Monmouthshire County Council produced a Proposed Pollinator Action Plan – read it here – which is a response to the Welsh Assembly Government’s Pollinator Action Plan.

This seems a straightforward and good plan, but on 23rd January the Council received a petition with 120 signatures opposing the plan.

Bees for Development are campaigning to ensure that Monmouthshire County realise how much support there is for the proposed policy and are asking for as many people as possible to support the campaign.
