Friday March 29th had been scheduled for nearly three years as a momentous date in British constitutional history. However, Resolven Community Council had a far more important task to perform in unveiling a plaque at the community centre in memory of the unstinting service of Councillor Redvers Davies. Councillor Davies completed fifty four years as an active Councillor, making him the oldest serving Councillor in England and Wales before his death in 2018. Unlike Brexit, the long awaited ceremony took place on time, did not need a revocation of a council minute and certainly did not require a lengthy extension. Indeed it was a pleasure for the Community Council to welcome a large contingent of Redvers’s family to the unveiling under the supervision of Council Chairman Mr Aylwin Jones. This was followed by a reception with the delicious Welsh cakes supplied by Mrs Fran Jones.
