On Thursday 29th July 2013 the new Creigiau village sign was officially unveiled by The Rt Hon The Lord Mayor of Cardiff, Cllr Derrick Morgan. The opening was supported Cllr Graham Thomas, Creigiau and St Fagan’s, and also Pentyrch Community Councillor, and members of the Creigiau 23 including Eurof Davies, Chairman, and Steve Link who really made this happen.
Creigiau 23 first discussed the idea back in 2004 and when Steve Link became Chairman in 2011 he made it his number 1 priority. And after a lot of work effort getting the appropriate permissions from Cardiff Council, they obtained agreement in October 2012. The project was also supported by Pentyrch Community Council.
The construction started in March 2013 carried out by two Creigiau 23 members, Dave Brown and Bruce Howells in their own time on a voluntary basis. The design was done by Glyn Jones, again on a volunteer basis, another member of the group. Creigiau 23 funded all the materials and buried within the foundations is a “time capsule” with items from the pupils of Creigiau Primary School and some Creigiau 23 artefacts.
Commenting on the new sign, Cllr Graham Thomas said : “A massive thank you to the members of Creigiau 23 for making this happen. The sign is a superb addition to the village and something we can all rightly be proud of. I know how much work went into this project over many years by a team that continue to make great things happen in this village.”
