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 TOGETHER
PACT meetings are an opportunity for the Community to talk to the
Police about what matters the most to them in their area.
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
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
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. You can register here:
