LLANBEDR. OPPOSITION TO A PROPOSED SANATORIUM. The parishioners of LUnbedr assembled ) in very large numbers at the Schoolroom' on Monday evening in order to discuss the best means to adopt to enter a serious I objection to the erection of a Sanatorium at Vron Berllan, which is near the source of the Llandyrnog and Lianginhaftil water lupply. Mr Roger Jones, Llanbedr Farm, the chairman of the Parish Council, in opening the proceedings, said he had never seen so many present at a pariah meeting before. Evidently they were all deeply interested in question before thtm, and at a meeting of the Parish Council that evening they had unanimously decided to object to a public sanatorium being erected in the parish. They had two grounds of objection :—(1). That the parieh was too small, and they had a piivate sanatorium there already. (2), That the proposed site was too near the Llandyrnog and Llanganhafal water supply. Mr C C Mott had written a letter of protest, stating that a public sanatorium would be a great drawback to their beautiful parish. The Rev Thomas Jones, rector of Llanbedr, also had written urging that a petition bs got up protesting against the proposal to erect another sanatorium in their midst. Captain Jenkins said he thought no time should be lost in showing their opposition to the proposed Sanatorium at Vron Berllan. A Sanatorium would certainly do them no good, and might do the parish a great deal of harm, They could protest against this scheme with double effect, because they had already a Sanatorium in the psrish. The gentle- man at Llangwyfan, who was opposing the Sanatorium being built there, did sd because it would be near his house. How- ever the site at Pits Llangwyfan wiis & perfect site and one which would bs hard to beat in the Vale of Clwyd. He hoped they would one and all oppose the scheme for erecting at Llanbedr (applause). Mr Hall Brookes thought it wou'd ba a great calamity to have another Sanatorium in the parish. The one they had was a private institution and well managed, but he was not so sure that a public Sana- torium would be managed as well. Again there was the site lower down the Vale which was much superior to the one I mentioned at Vron Berllan, which was near the source of a large water supply. In the interests of all the parishioners he would do his best to oppose the scheme (applause). Mr Taylor, Mr John Evans, and Mr Robert Jones spoke in a similar strain, and there was not a single speaker in favour of the Sanatorium. Mr W Leathea also spoke, and said he regretted that a representative of the Llanbedr estate was not present to give them his opinion on the question. Dr Crace Gilvert said Mr Babrens, who had raised the objection to the site at Plas Llangwyfan, bad asked him to find an alternative eite. He had visited five different places, but none of them came up to the requirements of the Kiog Edward VII Memorial Committee or were equal in any way to Pias Llangwyfan. The site of Vron Berllan was too small and quite unsuitable for a public institu- tion. He believed that there was not much chance of the Sanatorium coming to Llanbedr and some very strong pressure would have to be brought to bear on the authorities interested to make them give up the site at Plas Llan- gwyfan. However it was just as well for them to enter a protest in order to b3 on the safe side. At the same time he did not wish to persuade them one way or the other, because he was an interested party in the matter. At the same time if they wished to oppose the scheme they would have to do so at once, because an inquiry into the question was to be held at Denbigh on Friday. Personally he should not support or,oppose the scheme. On the motion of Capt Jenkins, seconded by Mr W Leathee, it was decided to petition against the scheme, and to send two or three representatives from the parish to attend the inquiry at Denbigh on Friday.
