A Round Robin was presented to the Committee calling attention to the! fact that unless a path is made through the land which is to be used for allotments in King's Road which can be used by pedestrians wishing to get from King's Road to Trinity Street, con- siderable inconvenience will be occasioned to the residents locally. The Assistant Engineer stated that a path will be left at the end of the allotments. The Rev. D. T. Jones, Lampeter, has been appointed curate of St. Mary's, Banigor.
