We Got It!Posted by: Phil Thane | Posted on: August 29, 2013
Last night (28th August) the Cittaslow Llangollen group presented their application to two representatives of Cittaslow UK in the council chamber. This was the culmination of several months of work, collecting information about the current state of Llangollen, and finding out what could be improved.
Cittaslow UK was represented by Andrea Mearns (one of Cittaslow International’s nine vice-presidents) and Sarah Pratt. Both from the first Cittaslow town in Wales, Mold. They were delighted with our application, and pleased to announce then and there that we had met all the conditions necessary to become the second Cittaslow town in Wales, and the sixth in the UK.
Chair of the Cittaslow working group, Phil Thane, thanked all the members who had put in many hours of work collecting the information and putting together a great presentation, and paid tribute to Town Clerk Gareth Thomas whose organisational skills kept the all the paperwork in order.
Mayor Bob Lube was also pleased with the outcome. The Cittaslow group was set up as an ad-hoc body to work towards accreditation, now we have it in the bag the next task is to work out how to incorporate Cittaslow Goals into the town council’s work to make a real difference for the people of Llangollen.
