K2 Explorer Scout Unit
Gwersyllt Community Council recently decided to award a grant of £400.00 to the K2 Explorer Scout Unit from Wrexham in response to their application for financial assistance towards the cost of their forthcoming expedition to the Czech Republic.
The biggest explorer unit in Wrexham, K2 ESU are open to young men and women aged 14 to 18 and provide opportunities for their members to take part in various adventures and activities , including the Duke of Edinburgh's Awards Scheme and trips abroad.
During the first two weeks of August, K2 ESU will be taking 25 young people on an expedition to the Czech Republic and are now fundraising in earnest for this purpose. Noting that three young people from Gwersyllt - Owain, Tom and Matt - will be taking part in the expedition, Members of the Community Council agreed that £300.00 should be ring-fenced to help meet their costs (i.e. each to receive £100.00) with the remaining £100.00 going to K2 ESU's general funding appeal.
The Council's grant was presented to members of K2 ESU by the Chair of the Community Council, Councillor Bernie McCann, on Monday, 20 June. Councillor McCann said that the Community Council was particularly pleased to be able to help the Gwersyllt members of K2 ESU and very much hopes that the expedition proves to be a memorable and enjoyable experience for all involved.

Throw a Blooming Great Tea Party in aid of Marie Curie
Like baking the perfect cake, hosting a Blooming Great Tea Party is all about the right ingredients – nice cuppas and naughty cakes, old friends and new faces, bad jokes and good conversation. It's all about having a blooming great time while raising money for a blooming great cause. You can get your free fundraising pack at www.mariecurie.org.uk/teaparty with bunting, invitations, posters, quiz questions and recipes to download.
Marie Curie provides free hands on nursing care to patients diagnosed with a terminal illness in their own homes as well as vital emotional support for their families and carers. In North Wales last year, 58 Marie Curie nurses provided care to 1,179 terminally ill people in their homes, usually overnight. £20 pays for a Marie Curie Nurse to look after someone with a terminal illness for an hour in the comfort of their own homes; £180 will pay for a full nine-hour shift.
Community Agents - Helping older people in Wrexham achieve a better quality of life
Community Agents are an innovative response to a recognised need that many people living in our communities are unable to connect with key services that help and maintain well-being and support their quality of life.
Community Agents work with the over 50s in Wrexham, providing easy access to a wide range of information that will enable them to make informed choices about their present and future needs. The aim is to help older people feel more independent, secure, and cared for, and to have a better quality of life. Community Agents will support people living in areas of Wrexham, bridging the gap between the local community and the statutory or voluntary organisations, and offering help or support.
They can help with the following:
- visiting the over 50s at home providing face to face information and support
- primarily supporting older people, but also anyone who may benefit
- helping individuals to make informed choices
- offering a facilitated signposting service and putting people in direct contact with the appropriate agency
Gwersyllt Community Council has appointed a Community Agent, Justine Godfrey, and she will be operating throughout the community for the benefit of older residents.
Her contact details are as follows:
Mobile: 07756 387 021
Office No. 01978 754776
If you would like to contact the Community Agent for help and advice or if you know of someone (e.g. a friend or neighbour) who may want to know more about this new service please do get in touch.
