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

VILLAGE NEWSLETTER The edition of the Village Newsletter for spring 2015 is now  available and you can read it on line here.  The next edition will be published in spring 2015. Please can you let  Val Caple have contributions for that as soon as possible.  but in any case by June 15th. Please see the Contact page for her email address  and other contact details. And don’t forget the website! She is very  happy to write up village events for the web or for the newsletter. 
THE PARISH FIELD Help is needed to maintain the Parish Filed on Monday 20 July  (from 6pm).  Jobs for the evening would include stamping down the bracken,  cutting back some of the brambles around the edge of the field and  clearing the area around Norman’s bench which has, until recently,  been surrounded by overgrowth. Wear long trousers and a shirt and bring gardening gloves and  loppers, if you have them.  Longer term it would be great to get together a group of people  more regularly, maybe three or four times a year, to start to tackle  these jobs more regularly. Please just turn up on the evening if you’d be happy to help -  or  even better drop Dave an email so he can work out numbers  (kezdave@gmail.com).   
FIBRE BROADBAND The more people from Craig and Penllyn who register their interest  in having super fast fibre broadband, the quicker we will get  connected. The current status of the local telephone cabinet is  'under review' as it has been for at least a year, and it would be  good to put some pressure on Openreach  Many people are complaining about their broadband speed and if  you are amongst them, or just want to help your friends in the  village, please register your interest as soon as possible to get us  moved up the list.
