Thanks and appreciation must go to the many residents with the current numbers in the first week was 1200 petition signatures, and this has increased substantially to save Cefn Forest and Pontllanfraith Leisure Centres. Petitions and Consultation Forms have been distributed all over the Caerphilly County Borough and I hope the Councils Cabinet will support the people when they make their decision in a few months. With many hundreds of signatures added each week the people voices are being heard. Thanks to Town Councillor Gerwyn James for his help with these matters and distribution, and we hope to see many residents at the Public Meeting on Wednesday 5th September at Cefn Forest Community Centre.
