    This looks great, joined the Facebook group a while ago. Good to see stuff happening in Penparcau. Along with the Garden Exchange and the new allotments, Penparcau looks like its pushing ahead with loads of eco activities. I really hope these carry on for the next few years, could have a huge impact with real benefits fir the locals.

    Great to see some positive news!
