The Parish of Penllyn sits in one of the most beautiful parts of The Vale of Glamorgan in South Wales and contains the villages of Penllyn and Craig Penllyn, together with Pentre Meyrick. It was largely untouched by the industrialisation of the 19th and 20th centuries, instead depending on its farming. Affluence and demographic trends have altered the community and now agriculture is concentrated on a small number of farms. The parish contains a number of notable buildings including Penllyn Castle which dominates the moors over which it looks, the churches of Llanfrynach and St John’s and The Red Fox pub in Penllyn
POLICE AND COMMUNITIES TOGETHERPACT meetings are an opportunity for the Community to talk to the Police about what matters the most to them in their area. More information...
CAROLS BY TRACTOROutstanding generosity was shown during the Annual Tractor Carol Singing trip around Craig and Penllyn. The mulled wine and Stollen was very well received and did much to refresh the vocal cords. We raised £600.13 which has been given to the Stroke Ward at Princess of Wales hospital, where it will be put towards medical mattresses to help prevent bed sores. A big thank you to Karl Jones from Treos for printing the carol booklets, to the Red Fox for putting up with the practices (all are welcome to attend again next December) and also to everyone who joined in, both on the trailer and around the bar.Many thanksRob and Dave Llewellyn
