Applefest changed to 24th September!

Andy HigginsComment

PLEASE NOTE: The 2017 Applefest event has changed date, it was originally due to take place on the 1st October, but the apples are already falling off our trees! To try and get the best from the crop we have decided to bring the event forward a week to September 24th, 1pm-3pm. More details to follow very soon.

Defibrillator Training

Andy HigginsComment

Please come along to Llanmaes village hall on  10th July at 8pm for a free training course on how to use a definrillator. Our local first responders will give instruction and demonstrations, plus an opportunity for you to practice on a dummy.

Llanmaes holds a defibrillator at The Blacksmiths Arms and has been used by residents in the past. Would you know what to do if you had to use it? If the answer is no, or not sure, these free events are highly recommended.

Llanmaes is a Treasure, a Top 20 Treasure in fact.......

Andy HigginsComment
“In 2003, Steve McGrory and Anton Jones reported a group of rare bronze cauldrons and axes they’d found in the Vale of Glamorgan. An initial investigation of the spot by the National Museum of Wales revealed an extraordinary prehistoric feasting mound and a remarkable accumulation of cultural material dating back to the beginning of the Iron Age, around 2,650 years ago. Beneath the mound lay a previously unsuspected Bronze Age settlement. When we excavated this we found Bronze Age gold artefacts, later declared Treasure.” (National Museum Wales)

— Edward Besly, numismatist, National Museum of Wales

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the implementation of the Treasure Act 1996. The Daily Telegraph and British Museum are highlighting a ‘Top 20’ list of Treasures which the public are now invited to vote on and choose their favourite before voting closes on May 15. You can read their article here:

Defibrillator Location

Andy HigginsComment

As The Blacksmiths Arms pub will
be closed for the next few weeks, the defibrillator will be located at the home of Jackie Wright,  21 Tyle House Close. We are looking to re-site it and will advice as soon as this has been arranged.

Llanmaes - Paths for People

Andy HigginsComment


 The Community Council are interested in setting up a “Rights of Way” Group within the village to protect and promote local footpaths.  The statutory duty to protect these paths rests with the highway authority, but local councils can play an important role in ensuring the paths are fit for use.

The aim of the group will be to carry out regular inspections (at least twice a year) of the paths in and around the village.  In consultation with the VOGC, possibly carry out basic maintenance work.  Check stiles and gates.  Ensure rights of way are signposted.  Perhaps organise regular walks for local residents.


For further information please contact Cllr Keith Lewis,

24 Tyle House Close, Llanmaes.  Tel: 01446 796106
