We wanted to defend and further the amenities and services available in Danescourt.  Over the years we have successfully lobbied and spoken on behalf of the residents.

Throughout the year the DCA has been involved in a number of issues and we will continue through 2017. If you would like to play a part in our community, please come and join us at the meetings on third Monday of every month at St John's Hall at 8pm.

The DCA sympathises as the Coop lets down Pontcanna residents by dropping their Post Office PDF Print E-mail

We were interested to read in the South Wales Echo earlier this week, that the Coop is planning to take over the Pontcanna Stores in Pontcanna Street, which has a large Post Office. The Coop already has a store nearby in Kings Road/Severn Grove. When the Coop takes over the Pontcanna Stores,it plans not to retain the Post Office and the residents are up in arms.

The Post Office in Danescourt - Message from the Chairman of the DCA

As some people will know I have been trying to get the Post Office relocated to a counter within the Co-op. This correspondence has generated upward of 30 emails and at least 25 telephone calls. At one stage I received emails that indicated that the move was going to take place and I thought we had a positive result.

Then, with both parties saying the other party had pulled out of discussions, I tried and I could not get a definitive response. I then wrote to the Chief Executives of the respective organisations directly. I included the petition with a 1000 plus signatures, organised by Judith James, plus letters of support from Councillors, Assembly Members, and Members of Parliament, all to no avail.

The letters I sent, plus the respective responses are now available for you to read.

Thank you to everyone that supported the efforts of the Danescourt Community Association.

Edgar Gibbs

Chair of the Danescourt Community Association
