Porth y Gogledd, Stryd Fawr a Tai Capel / North Road, High Street and Chapel Houses

Scheme information

Wedi'i sefydlu yn 2009, 'Porth y Gogledd a Stryd Fawr' oedd y cynllun Gwarchod Cymdogaeth gyntaf yn Deiniolen. Roedd hi'n arferol wedyn i gofrestru aelodau ar bapur. Chwe blynedd yn ddiweddarach, cofnodwyd y parth fach hon ar-lein, gan ddefnyddio meddalwedd mapio Bing i disgrifiwch y ffin. Chofrestriad y pentref cyfan, wedi'i rannu yn ei barthau cyfansoddol, erbyn hyn yn cael ei gynllunio. Ond mae problem meddalwedd wedi ymddangos sy'n ei gwneud hi'n amhosibl dros dro ddiffinio ffiniau parthau unigol gan ddefnyddio map rhyngweithiol. Ond nid yw'n atal aelodau rhag creu a disgrifio maint y parthau yn y blwch Disgrifiad o'r Cynllun. _____________________________________________________________ "Set up in 2009, "Porth y Gogledd and Stryd Fawr" was Deiniolen's first Neighbourhood Watch scheme, created when paper registration was the practice. Six years later, this small zone was entered online, using Bing mapping software to delineate the zone area. With the registration of the entire village, divided into its constituent zones, being now in prospect, subsequent software issues have temporarily ruled out the mapping of schemes. But it has not precluded their setting up and the verbal description of their coverage being entered in the Scheme Description.

George Nevison
My name is George Nevison. In June 1999 I moved to Deiniolen from Bethesda, to live over empty commercial premises (which I own), a former hairdressers on the High Street. There I, and other retailers, experienced youth vandalism and anti-social behaviour at first hand. When a Council grant became available to provide shops with the added protection of CCTV cameras, I pooled the complaints of local retailers into a detailed diary of nightly disturbances that proved so successful in prioritizing Deiniolen's application over others that the first generation of CCTV cameras was installed in 2004. Having been asked by the young people loitering in the High Street whether I would use my shop to provide opportunities for them to keep them out of mischief (such as a youth club might), I decided to put civic needs before commercial gain and tried two social initiatives. The first was arranged by the Council, a pilot implementation of a slate-carving workshop, located in the shop -- an imaginative venture that promised much. But this, sadly, failed due to a measure of unruliness on the part of some of the young students, who did not share its vision; and the sculptor very soon declined to teach there. I then proposed a remedy to deal with what I saw lay behind the early failure of the creative workshop -- a film club for select members and their parents, who might have felt the need for drug, moral and religious educational videos to be shown in the heart of the community, rather than in a more academically-structured setting delivering a PSE syllabus, or in a Sunday School. This was called "Amser Doeth", or "Wise Time". Yet this, too, collapsed through a lack of support. Finally, not succeeding in defeating the cause of the apparent lawlessness on the High Street, I resigned myself to tackling the symptoms. In 2009, I set up a small Neighbourhood Watch group of eight members in the High Street and North Road. This was when registration on paper was the norm, and when computing ability was not essential. I would like to recruit more to the High Street scheme; and I am delighted to see other zones springing up in the village under the aegis of Dyfodol Deiniolen, inspired by the vision of one born in the village, Alan Williams.
