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.

The Gallery theme this month of Storm attracted some lovely shots, reflecting the kind of weather we have had this Autumn! You can see them on the Gallery, but here are some to whet your appetite:
The theme for January is Christmas – your seasonal pictures, representing your Christmas – parties, tree, opening presents, Santa, Christmas cup – whatever you fancy. Send your pictures 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 Christmas; 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 to me, see the guidelines on the Gallery page, where you will also see that horizontal or even square pictures are better than portrait shaped.
