Welcome to the July & August 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 and History pages, or your themed photographs for the Gallery.  There is a contact link in the footer.

The next full update will be September’s – the theme for the new Gallery will be Happy or Happiness – anything representing that.  Get your entries in by the end of August (see below). The one page that has been updated, thanks to Mike Shaw and Rachel Darwazeh, is NCI Rhoscolyn – so you can see what they have been up to recently.
In the meanttime, the current Gallery theme is Climbing.  Here are two silly cartoons on the subject that made us smile. There are some real life ladder and rock climbing pictures on the Gallery.

Beautiful Rhoscolyn

We seem to have started something with the Beautiful Rhoscolyn pictures featured last month. So here are two more, very different but both of the Beacon Islands, from Rachel Darwazah (left) and Ted Jones. If you have what is just a beautiful picture taken in Rhoscolyn, then send it in.  Unlike pictures for the calendar, it doesn’t necessarily have to feaure a Rhoscolyn landmark – although it should have been taken in the area.  Please tell us where and what it is if it isn’t obvious!

August/September Gallery – HAPPINESS

Send your pictures, as jpgs, 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 HAPPY; 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 there are guidelines on the Gallery page.  It really does help me.
