Vandalism of the Green

One of many new trees in Plas Crug, Aberystwyth, snapped off by vandals

Ceredigion County Council does a fairly good job of keeping Plas Crug in Aberystwyth nice and green, and the new trees they planted in May/June were really appreciated. At least by normal people.

Aberystwyth University - Sports Science Department extension

Aberystwyth University has brought in the diggers again, as the University's apparent plans to replace green areas with buildings and concrete continue apace. This time it is the Sports Science Department, which is being extended onto the green space nearby. We suppose that isn't too unexpected, since the University cut down part of a wood to build the department in the first place.
