Radnorshire Rhyming Slang

ImageThis is an astounding story from Wales Online. It dates back to April, but it has just been brought to the attention of the RLF District Council.

This is the man in charge of deciding whether or not to close our schools.


That’s when good neighbours become…

ImageThe RLF District Council have been preparing a mail shot this evening, which is to go to the homes of all nine members of Powys County Council’s ‘Cabinet’.

A big place, Powys. The largest local authority by geographical size in England and Wales. From Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant in the north to Ystradgynlais in the south is 110 miles, (and about a three hour drive). From Machynlleth in the west to Presteigne in the East is about 61 miles, (and about an hour and forty minutes to drive).

You might imagine that the nine members of Powys CC cabinet would come from all across this vast ‘county.’ Odd then, that five of them have SY21 or SY22 postcodes, and all live within a twenty minute drive from one another. Handy for a car share into Llandrindod, I guess.
