Aberconwy MP Guto Bebb has congratulated local hotel owner, Neil Bradshaw of The Lodge Hotel, Tal y Bont on the expansion of the community buying scheme that he started.
Last year Neil successfully negotiated a flat rate for cylinder (bottled) gas for the residents of Tal y Bont, Llanbedr and Tyn y Groes. However, after this was announced Neil was contacted by purchasers of bulk tank liquid propane gas to see if he could negotiate a special rate for them. On Friday Flogas confirmed to Neil in writing that a special rate of 50p per litre would be offered to all existing and new customers in the whole of the LL32 postcode. This means that that all the villages from Tal y Bont up to and including Conwy will benefit from this.
Guto Bebb said, “I am delighted that Neil has continued to expand the breadth and depth of this community buying scheme. This is a great illustration of what can be achieved by communities working together. Neil is to be congratulated for his commitment to benefit all who live and work in this area. I would urge other community groups in the area to come together to try and replicate this model. I know Neil would be delighted to share his expertise. ”
