Monmouthshire / Sir Fynwy

MonmouthpediA

MonmouthpediA is the first Wikipedia project to embrace a whole town.

The project aims to cover every single notable place, person, artefact, plant, animal and other things in Monmouth in as many languages as possible, but with a special focus on Welsh. This is a different scale of wiki-project. The project is jointly funded by Monmouthshire County Council and Wikimedia UK, Monmouthshire County Council are currently installing free town wide Wi-Fi for the project.

Monmouthpedia uses QRpedia codes, a type of bar code a smartphone or tablet can read through its camera (using one of the many free QR readers available) that takes you to a Wikipedia article in your language. QR codes are extremely useful, as physical signs have no way of displaying the same amount of information and in a potentially huge number of languages.

I am a regular user of the road from the Corn Exchange in Gilwern to the Usk Bridge crossing at Glangrywny. Over the the years the amount of traffic using this narrow road which is single direction with passing places for part of its length has steadily grown and at times the road is very congested. I now read in the local papers that the planning authority (BBNP) are considering an application to develop housing at the old army camp at Cwrt-y-Gollen in Glangrwyny just over the county boundary in Powys. This is bound to result in an increase in traffic in the event that the development goes ahead which will have implications for the road from the bridge to Gilwern which being in Monmouthshire is a responsibility of MCC Highways Authority. I would be interested to know whether MCC have made any submission to the planning authority in respect of the traffic impact of the development and whether MCC are considering traffic measures to deal with the increasing traffic such as road widening, traffic lights to improve flow, upgrading the bridge.

The reason there are vacancies for tutors is that they don't get paid to come to a class unless there are 7 people in it. How valued do you think they feel? Continue reading 'Community Learning' >
