Welcome & Merry Christmas/Nadolig Llawen

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 linkin the footer.

The Gallery theme for this edition is TREES & LEAVES which has proved to be the most popular we have had so far – thanks everyone for sending in such lovely shots – see them on the Gallery, but here are three very different ones,  from Myfir Roberts (a snowy tree in his garden), David Wyatt that manages to incorporate a mountain (well the bottom of one), next month’s theme.  And because, to our surprise, nobody sent in a Christmas tree, here is ours from last year.

The theme for the January Gallery is MOUNTAINS. And  it couldn’t be a better time to visit Snowdonia to get some wonderful shots – with snow on the higher peaks.  But you don’t have to stick to our local mountains – any mountains, anywhere please.   The more unusual and exotic the better!

The best possible greeting comes from Isaac……
