Welcome

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 address in the footer.

The Gallery theme for this edition is SUMMERTIME – see all the contributions on the Gallery. Here is one from Leslie Duncan, taken the last week of August in Ibiza. And the second is by Rob Warnock –  a lovely Summer’s day view from his and Sally’s Rhoscolyn cottage.

Jellyfish may look horrible on the beach, but how beautiful they are in the sea as this photograph taken in Borthwen bay by Caro Wilson shows – see more on the Nature page.

October’s Gallery theme is going to be HAPPINESS or JOY.  Any interpretation of that – laughter, smiling, skipping .  There’s a picture in the sidebar to get you into the Happiness mood! Send your entries, as ever, to information@rhoscolyn.com,  marking you email September 2016 Gallery – Summertime and send your photographs as Jpgs only please.  (if you dont know how to save as jpgs, there are some guidelines on the Gallery page). Please make the selection of your two or three offerings rather than sending me lots to choose from.
