Welcome to the August & September 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 the Gallery is Happy/Happiness and as ever you have sent in some great shots, including some very creative ones!  Here are a couple to whet your appetite.
“Happiness, happiness!” –  Mike Shaw took this picture of Ken Dodd’s statue in the concourse of Liverpool Lime Street station.  And Alison Shadbolt sent in the other one above, of a very  happy bridesmaid, Henrietta, known as Etta – taken at her Uncle Adam’s wedding.

And here we have Jo’s happy cow – which she has entitled “Happiness is being the bull’s favourite cow for the day!”!

Beautiful Rhoscolyn

This is where we put in one or two of the photographs you have sent in that just show how beautiful Rhoscolyn (which includes Four Mile Bridge) is.  Unlike pictures for the calendar, they don’t necessarily have to feaure a Rhoscolyn landmark – although it should have been taken in the area.  Please tell us where and what it is if it isn’t obvious!

Here’s one from Susan Hanbury:

Gerrit Forrester took this picture of the sunset at Four Mile Bridge: 

October Gallery – Sport

This is the theme for October.  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 Sport; 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.
