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.
This month’s artist of the month is Catrin Griffiths, a ceramicist and slate worker – see some of her lovely work on the Arts page. The Gallery theme this month of Relaxation has attracted a lot of great pictures, including many of cats and dogs, so these are featured on this month’s Pet Tales page. Here are a couple and there are some human relaxers in the side bar!
The theme for September’s Gallery is ACTION/ACTIVITY- any representation of that you want – here is one from Caspar Verney to get you going:
BUT PLEASE PLEASE name your pictures – your name and the page or section it is aimed for – SO: name, Gallery theme Relaxation; 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, where you will also see that horizontal or even square pictures are better than portrait shaped.
Rhoscolyn 2018 calendar
You have until mid-September to get your photographs in for the 2018 calendar.
This year’s calendar made £1000 (£1250 with Gift Aid), for Tenovus, the Welsh cancer research charity. Funds raised from sales of the 2018 calendar will go the Rhoscolyn NCI, which mans (and womens) the lookout on an entirely voluntary basis. The Lookout badly needs watertight replacement windows and roof so that is what we will be funding. Let’s make 2018 a bumper (and dry) year for them.
See the side bar for details of how to enter.
