Welcome to the May edition of the Rhoscolyn community website.  It has been developed to serve the local community of Rhoscolyn and Four Mile Bridge and its visitors.

We hope you will have a good look round  it.  We want it to promote the image of the area, and to help everyone to make the most of what it has to offer.  Rhoscolyn is a beautiful village, with fine sandy beaches and lovely countryside.  With its sheltered bay, Borth Wen, it is a great spot for families as well as for sailors, kayakers and walkers.  And the views from its two headlands are spectacular.  Its beautiful church, St Gwenfaen’s, sits proudly on the hill overlooking the village and the sea. The very popular White Eagle, which serves some of the best food on Anglesey, is on the lane down to the beach.

On this Rhoscolyn website you will also find some history and general background, including the facilities on offer locally, places to visit and things to see.

We aim to keep the information on the site up to date and to add to it;  please do send us your thoughts, ideas, suggestions.  And best of all, your contributions.  Such as stories and photographs for the News, Nature Watch and History pages, or your themed photographs for the Gallery.  There is a contact link in the footer.

The theme for this month’s website is Leaves and you can see the pictures on the Gallery.  Thanks to everyone who contributed.

Apropos of nothing at all…

But because they are both so lovely, here are two pictures to share with you.  The first is of Alaw Robertson and James Forsyth after the RHOSCOLYN WEDDING OF THE SEASON –  probably the year!  Sent by Alaw’s mum, Susan Hanbury.

The second of a celebration cake Louise Littlewood made,  using OUR DUCK EGGS! I keep telling people that they are the best eggs possible for baking, and here is the proof of the pudding/cake.  We do sometimes have some spare so let us know if you want to try them for yourself.

June Gallery

The theme for June is EYES – human, animal, vegetable.  Send your pictures, as jpgs, for this theme to the address in the footer.

PLEASE PLEASE  name your pictures – your name and the page or section it is aimed for – SO:  name, Gallery theme Leaves; Or:  Nature page, History page etc.  And for the latter two or any other pages, please in your covering note tell me what/where the picture is of. If you want to know how to name your actual photos before sending them there are guidelines on the Gallery page.  It really does help me.
