COMMUNITY GREEN ENERGY ADVISORY GROUP
The Community Green Energy Advisory Group (CGEAG) has been set up to annually advertise, consolidate, and advise Community Green Energy Monmouthshire CIC and Community Green Energy England and Wales CIC on community projects, within the community council areas of Llantilio CC, Grosmont FCC & Llanarth FCC and where appropriate neighbouring communities.
Luxcara are the owners of the Manor Farm Solar Park but the community benefit funds are held by the two CIC's.
Community reports will be available on this page following meetings of the group.
The e-mail address for this group is CGEAG01@gmail.com - if you have any queries regarding matters relating to CGEAG please can you send them to this e-mail address and not the Llantilio Crossenny Community Council. In this way the group will be sure that all information given is fair and correct.
The website for this group is www.communitygreenenergy.co.uk - grant application forms can be downloaded from the "grant" page and all applications (including all requested information) must be submitted to the group by no later than the 30th November 2017.

Message from our PCSO
My name is Joe FACCHIANO and I am the new Community Support Officer for Llantilio Crossenny I also cover Overmonnow Ward and help out with other areas as required.
Please contact me with any local policing issues on 01495 233904 or mobile 07464 653688 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am currently based in Monmouth and have previously worked for West Mercia Police before moving to Gwent Police in 2007.
It will take me a little while to familiarise myself with this new area but I have already met several residents, councillors and school staff members who have made me feel very welcome. Before Christmas I also had the opportunity of meeting the Year 5 at Cross Ash School, teaching them about First Aid, they were extremely well mannered and set a positive image for the school.
May I ask you to put the following information and link out on your e mail for the computerised Neighbourhood Watch-OWL.
Most of you will now be familiar with Neighbourhood Watch which is an effective way to share information and good ideas in keeping your community safe. It doesn’t take much effort and can be a good way of socialising with other local residents. It doesn’t have to be a huge area, you may wish to have a Neighbourhood Watch of just a couple of houses or a whole street.
For those of you living more rural you may prefer to join the computer watch system which is called OWL. Just open the link and follow the instructions.:
You will receive a password which you can change at a later date.
Alternatively, you can pick up an OWL leaflet from Cross Ash School – complete the form, return it to the school and I will collect it from there.
A new skateboard/BMX park will be completed by the end of February 2015 located on the Rockfield Road, Monmouth opposite the Fire/Ambulance Station. It will be in the top six best skateboard facilities in Wales, so please let anyone know who may be interested.
