Last night on BBC Look East, our Deputy Station Officer Lisa was interviewed live on air talking about our Sand Hole Collapse exercise. For those of you that missed it, the entire broadcast is here for you to watch.
The event was very successful and and at the same time, helpful too all of the emergency services that took part on the evening and will prove vital should a dreaded situation like this happen for real on one of our beaches.
Remember we want you to have fun at the beach and we are not saying you cannot dig holes, we are simply requesting that you be sensible and careful when doing it. Make shallow wide holes, not deep vertical. Keep safe but have fun.
To find out more on Sand Hole Collapses and other beach safety tips, please visit www.gov.uk/coastguardsafety and remember, when you are on the beach and if someone requires assistance, dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.

Something to celebrate! Our Community Emergency Plan won an award today!
All down to you, the community, the 53 community wardens, Borth Community Councillors, RNLI, Coastguard, Ceredigion County Council and Natural Resources Wales working together in partnership to develop the plan and use it in an emergency. It has made a real difference in our community and it's great to have won an award that helps share good practice.
Borth Community Council entered the Community Emergency Plan into the One Voice Wales Innovative Practice Annual Award for Best Community Engagement Initiative, we came first in Wales for this category and brought home a glass trophy!
Thank you very much to all involved in the Community Emergency Plan. We'd love to have more Community Wardens- let us know if you'd like to know more.

Just a reminder to all that dogs are not allowed on the beach between the cliffs and the northern point of Borth village from 1st May until 30th September.
Dogs on the beach where we can an order in place could impact on our blue flag status.
Dogs are very welcome on the beach from the YHA/ Golf course all the way North to Ynyslas and the National Nature Reserve.
Do please pick up dog mess and dispose of it in litter bins.
Dyfed-Powys Police and Borth Community Council were out again this morning 19th Dec recording vehicle speeds in Borth as part of the Community Speed Watch Scheme.
Vehicles travelling over the speed limit will be recorded and verified immediately and details given to the Police who will act on the information.
We are now ready to set up more volunteers from the community, the more volunteers - the more we can do. Please let us know if you'd like to find out more or to join, or phone Gwenllian Ashley on 01970 872004 who is coordinating.
We will also be expanding the locations we are recording speeds. Hoping this raises the profile and reminds people to keep speeds down to the speed limit.

Borth Arts is a group of artists who live and work in Borth or Ynylas. It grew out of a desire to promote Borth and Borth artists through joint exhibitions and activities. Currently, the group comprises of artists, a curator, administrator and an interpreter.
Within Borth, there are many accomplished artists practising the creative arts. It is hoped that, with time, the group will increase in size, becoming more inclusive, and thus broaden the scope and range of artistic and cultural activities represented.
The group aims to support artists living and working locally, not only providing opportunities for exhibiting their work, but also creating opportunities for the sharing of expertise and the learning of new skills. We believe that arts and culture play an important role in the enrichment and wellbeing of the wider community
For information about individual artists, images of work and details of exhibitions, please see the Borth Arts Facebook page
A Second Exhibition for Borth Arts
Mid Wales Arts Centre, Caersws
After a successful show at Oriel Queen’s Gallery in Narberth, Borth Arts have a second exhibition at Mid Wales Arts Centre in Caersws.
‘On the Edge’ is an exhibition of work by a group of artists living and working in Borth and Ynyslas. Using a variety of media and techniques, this diverse group is connected and inspired by the unique environment of Borth – sea, beach, mountains, colour and ever changing light. Both artists and location are trapped between the sea and the mountains.
Curator Gwenllian Ashley, says, ‘Borth is an ugly, beautiful village and the work reflects this. Some escape into other lands, others paint the grim realities of living on a storm beach, but all have an affinity to their village and its idiosyncratic view of life.’
Work is on show by Gabrielle Adamson, Mikey Bailey, Bodge, Lynne Dickens, Stuart Evans, Linda Henry, Neil Johnson, Peter Jones, Becky Knight, Mike Mann, Ruth Packham, Sarah Pugh, Marie-Pierre Rowland, Eve Smith and Catrin Webster,
The exhibition can be viewed at Mid Wales Arts Centre, Maesmawr, Caersws Thursday to Sunday, 11.00am to 4.00pm. The show runs from June 11th until July 16th.
GanBwyll / GoSafe
Borth Community Council and the Police were out this morning between 8.35 and 9.05 Wed 17th May 2017 and in that half hour logged 6 cars over the limit, the Police take that information away for their records, the Community Council has no further action. Today we also had the Police speeding van person with us to check we were doing it all okay and also to look at another site in Borth, we hope once this new location is improved we will be able to have a third location approved. He shared some leaflets with us about GoSafe, these are attached here. Positively lots and lots of people were taking care driving through the village too.
It would be a big help if we had more people willing to help with such speed awareness activity. If you might be interested, or someone you know might be, do please get in touch. It does take a while to be authorised so its worth starting the process even if its for a later date. You would always be one of three people at any time and there is no follow up action needed, we just need someone to hold the speed radar, another person to verify the results immediately and a person to write the details down, its very straight forward. You wouldn't be obliged to come every time either, the more we have the more of a rotation between people is possible.
