On Friday 14th December many of the ladies from Llanmaes are getting together to walk around the village singing Xmas carols.
We will meet at the bus stop on the green at 18.30 and make several stops around the village. We are raising funds for two charities: Dementia cafe at the Bethel Baptist Church and To Wish Upon A Star.
Please feel free to join us on the evening and all donations will be gratefully received. We will finish up at The Blacksmiths
On Saturday the 10th November 2018 people gathered on the recreation field in Llanmaes to formally dedicate the site as a Centenary Field. This event was the culmination of a partnership between Fields in Trust, an organisation that protects green spaces for people to enjoy in perpetuity, and The Royal British Legion. Fields protected between 2014 and 2018 have the special status of Centenary Fields in recognition of the Centenary of World War 1 (1914 – 1918). The status of Llanmaes Centenary Field means that it cannot be developed and will remain a green space for the enjoyment of future generations.
Llanmaes Community Council have created a Memorial Garden in a quiet corner of the recreation field and it is hoped the garden will be used by those who wish to sit and reflect in a peaceful and beautiful setting.
The garden has been designed to draw on the natural aspect of the site. An existing cherry tree forms the focal point with semi-circular benches and planting of bulbs and wild flowers. In the photograph below, Roy Kennion, Royal Navy veteran and Lexie Thomas, representing the youth of the village, laid a wreath from the Community in Remembrance. The Community Council would like to thank the Vale of Glamorgan Council and Alun Griffiths Limited for their support with this project
If you wish to sponsor a large poppy to hang in the village this year, please contact Bob Penn on 01446 792374 with what wording you would like written on it. Cost is £10 and of course all money goes to the Poppy Appeal.
I thought you may wish to know that last night at least two properties in the village were subjected to burglaries from their garden buildings. It appears that the perpetrators came across the fields and broke into garden sheds. They removed lawn mowers and other items. One house the value of lost items is in the region of £600.
Please ensure your property is secure and report any suspicious behaviour to the police.
Apologies but my last post had the wrong date mentioned, the service is on 14th October, NOT the 4th October. Sorry for any confusion.
