WEST CROSS, SWANSEA TO ROTHERSLADE, GOWER WITH JIM THE SWIM STARRING BIG DAVE, WALK AROUND WALES

On a beautiful November morning I met with Jim the Swim near the West Cross Inn in Swansea and we walked to Rotherslade Bay on the Gower Peninsula for a swim, on the way we bumped into Chris and her former guide dog Big Dave. Chris told us the story of how she looked after Big Dave as a puppy then sent him on his way to learn his trade as a guide dog, and how one day she received a call saying that Big Dave was getting the sack because he had a phobia about wooden flooring and refused to enter shops and places that laid such traps for dogs. The problem was that his legs were too long and he'd slip and slide and slide and slip. Poor Dave, maybe he was just happy living with Chris and acting up in the knowledge that they'd send him home.

RHIGOS MOUNTAIN MULTI-SPORT ADVENTURE - CYCLE SWIM & RUN CRAIG Y LLYN RIDGE

My bags were packed ready for a ride to the beach followed by a swim but the weather was not the best and rain was on the way. The beach is not the nicest place to be in the rain, the main consideration being changing for the swim & back into cycle gear again in the wind and rain which is a real problem, so I came up with the idea of a multi-sport-adventure on the Craig y Llyn ridge where I could change in amongst the trees and hide my bike while I went for a run. I also wanted to check out the new zip wire facility recently opened on the ridge. This is the story of my adventure until the camera battery run out.

WHY ARE YOU KEEPING THIS INFORMATION SECRET FROM THE PEOPLE OF GLYNNEATH?

On the 27 March 2021. Councillor Knoyle posted information about the Heol Glyn development that had not previously been made public. He posted information about a document containing the results of chemical testing from soil at the Heol y Glyn site. He states that he had used this document in his role as a county councillor and undertaken due diligence in relation to the testing results contained in the document, he states in his post: 

"I was provided with a copy of the WAC (Waste Acceptance Criteria) Tests which were carried out on 7th October 2020 - I received this confidentially, hence the reason I have redacted the image below. You will see that there are many contaminants identified in the samples, this is just a snippet of Sample 04 taken on 20th October 2020."

Councillor Knoyle and the complete Neath Port Talbot Council refuse to communicate with us and provide information that is relevant to the Heol y Glyn development in Glynneath. Why?

GLYNNEATH CONTAMINATION - TOWN COUNCIL MEETING 27 OCTOBER 2020 - ITEM 17

EAST GLYNNEATH RESIDENTS AGAINST CONTAMINATION CORRESPONDENCE AND ASSOCIATED REPORT

Every Glynneath Town Councillor in this video is aware that Neath Port Talbot Council broke the land contamination rules in 2009 resulting in an above normal level of carcinogens remaining in the soil at the Heol-y-Glyn site. The soil should have been cleaned up or tested further once contamination of this level was found. The increased contamination and safety recommendations to protect Glynneath residents that were ignored has endangered the lives of Glynneath families for at least the last 12 years. It is possible that there are deaths in the East Glynneath area that may be related to this contamination and the ignored safety recommendations......

WALKING BEHIND SGWD YR EIRA, BRECON BEACONS, WALES IN FLOOD

48 hours of almost constant rain can only mean one thing, the waterfalls are in flood. A 90 minute walk from my front door takes me to what I consider to Wales' best waterfall, Sgwd yr Eira. This video shows this amazing waterfall in heavy flood including walking behind the falls.

WINTER SWIMMING - NEOPRENE GLOVES, SOCKS & HOOD / HAT REVIEW

Covid lockdown had got to me because I hadn't swum since I had a quick dip on Swansea beach in November and my last decent swim was in September. I'd managed a swim every month last winter and January was probably the coldest month so I knew that to get a decent swim in, to enjoy it and to be relatively warm after it I needed some additional kit. With this in mind I ordered 3 neoprene swim accessories from ebay, gloves, socks and a hood/hat. Off to the beach I went on my trusty Roberts, the rest of the story is on youtube.

On the 16 Dec 1905 Wales inflicted the first ever defeat of the NZ All Blacks by an international team. Wales were captained by Gwyn Nicholls and the match was played at CAP in front of a capacity crowd. Teddy Morgan scored the try that sealed a 3-0 victory for Wales over the All Blacks, the All Blacks thought they'd scored a try but it was disallowed. The match itself has been termed 'The Greatest Game Ever Played'. A match programme was sold at the ground on the day, There were unofficial programmes produced, a semi official programme and subsequent reprints, consequently the official match programme the most sought after programme for Welsh rugby programme collectors realising up to £5000 at auction. But how do we know what is an original programme. How can we identify the Holy Grail?

JIM UNWIN ENGLISH & BRITISH LIONS RUGBY INTERNATIONAL - KICK HIM DAI
Rosslyn Park, Eastern Counties, The Army, Barbarians, England and British Lions

In January 2001, I met with Jim Unwin at his home in Essex. At 89 years of age Jim was still as sharp as he ever was on the rugby field, he was reminiscing about his career, relating stories from the 1936 British tour of Argentina and 1938 tour of South Africa, about his fellow players Obolensky, Mayne, Cranmer & Gadney, Jim and I spent a pleasant afternoon going through his scrapbooks, reliving those great tours. I didn't get a lot of video footage at the time but Jim kept linking my name with a saying about the Welsh presumably from the 1938 tour of South Africa so I switched the camera on to capture this.

00l-cover-up.jpg (375514 bytes) CUDDY GROUP TIPPING HABITS &  NATURAL RESOURCES WALES MISREPRESENTATION - GLYNNEATH CONTAMINATION - NEATH  PORT TALBOT COUNCIL COVER UP

In this video, we see how the Neath Port-Talbot Council Planning Development Manager Steve Ball has grossly misrepresented the role of Natural Resources Wales in the planning process for the Heol y Glyn development. This is evidence he is presenting as factual to the Planning Committee. We believe that the reason he does this is to cover up Planning Department malpractice which allowed the Cuddy Group to tip on the site unregulated and to provide the Planning Committee with a sense of lawfulness for the development and in particular the illegal tipping habits of the Cuddy Group. The Cuddy Group were tipping at the Heol y Glyn site from 2005 to 2016  while Natural Resources Wales was founded in 2013 and the Cuddy Group's first NRW licence dates from August 2014 by which time the majority of tipped material had been brought onto the site.

  Neath Port-Talbot Council Planning Committee meeting 8 September 2020 in which I accuse the NPTC Planning Committee of breaching the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and rubber stamping Planning Department negligence and malpractice. This is related to the Enzo Development at Glynneath which borders my property. - CLICK HERE
https://youtu.be/J2fn1O2FF74   This video shows the streams behind Brynhyfryd in flood in 2016. Enzo want to build 3 houses on what has historically been a natural flood. It is impossible for the drainage system on the development to capture the complete run off from the site during a storm and any additional run off water from the site will increase the flooding that is already happening to the lower parts of Brynhyfryd and Woodland Park.

Never one to let an opportunity for a song pass by, Gavin was press ganged by Dai into playing along. The song went on a lot longer but Dai's phone fortunately for all my phone ran out of memory.
