Hywel Williams MP and AM Alun Ffred Jones help out at Plas 'Messincla'. (COL brings you the best photos!)

Plaid Cymru shows the way with some hard Labour!

Last year Caernarfon Online brought you yet another 'Exclusive' when a young boy wrote to the Town Council and express his concerns about the state of Plas Maesincla (dubbed Plas Mess-incla) Click here to view. Unfortunately his plea for help fell on deaf ears as the council (after reading his letter at a meeting) did little else! We highlighted the story again and again, with little or no response from the council.

The good people at The Pobol Peblig Partinership had other ideas though and instead of humming and ha-ing about a silly buffet, arranged a clean up campaign to carry out the work.

Pobol Peblig is based at Y Noddfa and works hard for the community and we take our hats off to them for taking the initiative and doing something positive.

The photos below show how hard the youngsters and volunteers worked today and with help from Allan Evans of Plas Pawb, Humphrey Jones of the Housing Dept, the New PCSO's and some others a skip was filled to the brim in no time.

As most of you are already aware we have an election coming up, therefore it was doubly pleasing to see our AM Mr Alun Ffred Jones and our MP Mr Hywel Williams taking time off the election trail to roll up their sleeves and helping out with clearing the site. Perhaps  the Labour councillors or candidate for that matter were apparently to busy knocking on doors canvassing?

Caernarfon Online has always supported hard work and we would like to applaud those involved in the clean up of Plas 'Messincla'. Let's hope that those who didn't help are really embarrassed. We would like to congratulate the good people at Pobol Peblig and not forgetting Alun Ffred for taking time out to help in what can only be described as a busy time for him.

We understand that Gwynedd Councillor Roy Owen and Community Warden Chris Walker used specialist equipment to clear the area of any 'needles' before the clean up team arrived. We also understand that some of the ward councillors were also present.

 Mr Humphrey Jones helps to clean up!
