Welcome & Happy New Year/Blwyddyn Newydd Dda

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 for this edition is MOUNTAINS – after a slow start, we have a nice bunch now, so thanks to all of you who contributed.  Here are a couple very different but very familiar ones of Holyhead mountain, the first by Caro Wilson and the second by Clare Venner:

The theme for the February Gallery is COLD . Very appropriate as it has, as I write this, become very much colder here in Rhoscolyn.  Could be cold weather, cold people, cold animals, a cold landscape – cold sea.  Up to you and your imagination.  Send them, marked February Gallery, to the contact address in the footer.

Here’s one to make you shiver!  Taken in 2010!
