the provision during 2012 had been a stop gap measure to determine interest in a permanent structure.  There had been
issues re. volunteers willing to open/close the MUGA and cover the equipment and that it had been suggested previously that the Sports Association/Community Council/local residents group source their own mobile skate equipment or look

cynigion ar gyfer y CDLl wedi eu cyflwyno i Lywodraeth Cymru eu hystyried.
Roedd 1600tunell o halen wedi ei raeanu ac fe lenwir bocsys fel bo angen. Mae

hanesyddol gael eu symud o’r dafarn a’i rhoi i’r gymuned.

1.   Roedd
Cyng.Ms.Rogers wedi gofyn i’r cyngor gysidro cael tudalen ‘Facebook’ ar gyfer y

i gael un parhaol. Roedd problemau gyda chael gwirfoddolwyr i agor/cau'r MUGA

wedi ymddangos yn y papur lleol . Fe roir cyfle i aelodau’r cyhoedd wneud
gosodiadau i Swyddfa’r Swyddog Prisio’r Sir o fewn un mis. Mynegwyd pryder fod
y neuadd wedi ei hadeiladu fel canlyniad i roddion gan y gymuned ac y dylai
unrhyw elw ddychwelyd er lles y gymuned.
Cytunwyd ar holl o’r materion lleol ac fe fydd y Clerc yn delio a’r materion sydd angen sylw.
