Welcome to 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.
Pasg Hapus (Happy Easter)
As ever, there is lots new to look at – some lovely botanical paintings on the Arts page, along with details of the Anglesey Open Studios this month; the story of how one exceptionally fortunate dog, Barney, survived a quite horrendous cliff fall on the Pets page; the man who is walking the whole way around the British Isles with his dog – and pictures of him on Borthwen beach on the News Page. And lots more…
The Gallery theme for this edition is Water- for which as ever there were some great contributions – see them on the Gallery page. But here are two very different ones. The first an absolute beauty – Llyn Idwal – by Jo Jones; below that four pairs of anonymous bodies hanging by their knees in a pool in Portugal, by Clare Venner.
The theme for the April Gallery is STONES – small, large, round, rocky, walls, sculptures, gems, Rolling (but you must have taken them yourself)- whatever you like for the theme.
BUT PLEASE PLEASE name your pictures – your name and the page or section it is aimed for – SO: name, Gallery theme Stone; Or: name, Nature page. And for the latter or any other pages, please in your covering note tell me what/where the picture is of…. And even better, put in the subject of your email that it is for XXX page of the Website. If you want to know how to name your actual photos before sending them to me, see the guidelines on the Gallery page.
