The recent 'From the Jam' gig at the Barry Memorial Hall was a great evening for all that attended - and more importantly had an audience of 800 people - evidence of an untapped demand for live music in Barry. Yes, we have the legendary GlastonBarrry and Cadstock Festivals.Yet should the Memo also put on regular live music? Back in the '70's the Memo was one of Wales' leading live music venues with most of the major bands of the time playing there. There seems to be scope to develop a...

Just had a wonderful time on Saturday at Barry Island Junior School Summer School Fair today. Also, it was Cadoxton School's Summer Fair as well.I would imagine most school's in Barry would have their School Summer Fairs around the same time  - so why not have them all formally on the same day to make it more easier to promote the idea of a 'School Summer Fair Day'. If adopted, not just across the Vale but also backed by Welsh Government, the idea of a national 'School Summer Fair Day'...

The Big Lunch is a great idea - but so far does not seem to be happening in Barry. Can we make it happen on the official Big Lunch day - the first Sunday of June - June 7th. The Big Lunch originally was conceived by the Eden Project in Cornwall with the idea that wouldn't it be great if every street in the UK, people sat down together and got to know all the good people who live near them? It would encourage small talk, and hopefully leading to bigger talk and conversations that inspire...

If there was a competition for the most surreal or unlikely celebrity combination in any advertising, would the poster featuring Gavin & Stacey's Nessa with Humphrey Bogart outside the Carousel Amusement Arcade on Barry Island win the prize? Intrigued by what was going through the mind of the creative and their creative thought process when producing this work! What do you think of the ad? Anyone know the story behind how it came to be? Do you know of any other examples celebrity...

What must be one of  the greatest tourism publicity stunts of all time could be an inspiration for Barry. It must be the 150th anniversary of the naming of the North Wales village Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. The tourist prospects of an otherwise fairly nondescript place were transformed into a global icon.(it only has a population of 3,000 but is world famous) Could Barry Island create a new station nameplate with an even longer name to out trump...

The Rough Guide in its list of 25 must-see things in Wales fails to include Barry and Barry Island. http://www.roughguides.com/destinations/europe/wales/things-not-to-miss/#/11 Do we need to put the record straight? Maybe by sharing what you think are 'The 7 Wonders of Barry & Barry Island' we can do more to get people to realize the magic of Barry and include it as a must-see place. Here are our suggestions for the '7 Wonders' - do you agree? Is anything missing? What would...

News of a major £220million investment by Network Rail to 'improve' local rail services could actually lead to a worse service for Barry people. Work will see the re-opening of a Platform 3 at Barry Station and a new Loop service connecting BarryIsland with Barry Station - presumably similar to the service between Cardiff Queen Street and CardiffBay. Due for completion by 2015, the scheme is claimed to be 'congestion busting' and it is claimed 'will potentially provide hundreds of extra...

Local Government reorganisation is again on the agenda for Barry following the Williams Commission report. It recommends Councils in Wales should merge leaving 10, 11 or 12 local authorities rather than the current 22, suggesting reducing council numbers by mergers using existing boundaries. Discussions about how to proceed with the merger should begin by Easter. This will have a major impact on Barry and its future. Should the Vale of Glamorgan Council stay or go? Is a merger with...

Love this Donut Man figure outside the Rock Shop on Barry Island. Should he have a name?

The statue in The Dolphin, Barry Island seemed to capture the irreverant character of Barry. What do you think?
