Welcome to the March 2019 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, Pets and History pages, or your themed photographs for the Gallery. There is a contact link in the footer.
The Gallery theme for this edition is The Weather – and in particular, EXTREME weather, and we certainly have been having some, of varying sorts. Thank you all for the great pictures you have sent in. You can find them on the Gallery page, but here are a couple: If you didn’t know from the view, which would you think was the last day of January in Rhoscolyn and which a February day in the Mediterranean Island of Ibiza?
The theme for April is FOOLS/FOOLISH/FOOLING/FOOLED – at a pinch FOOLHARDY.
PLEASE PLEASE name your pictures on the jpg before you send it – your name and what the picture is if not obvious. In the subject of your email put the page the picture is for. If you want to know how to save your your pictures as Jpgs or to name your photos as you save them, there are guidelines on the Gallery page. It really does help me, as I get hundreds and there is always the risk of attributing yours to the wrong person!
This is where we select a photograph of Beautiful Rhoscolyn from those sent in. This one from Susan Hanbury – she entitled it The Calm Before the Storm.
