Welcome to the February 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 Love, for St Valentine’s Day. I am sure you really are a very lovable and loving lot, and were just too busy to take pictures as there weren’t many! But those we did get made up for it by being pretty good and in some cases very creative – like this one taken by Jo Jones in Lanzarote – hundreds of padlocks are attached to the chain by lovers and the key thrown away, so nobody can part them!
Hopefully we will get more pictures of the March theme which is EXTREME WEATHER – stormy seas & skies, snowy mountains & countryside or your house – maybe you have a snowman picture?
PLEASE PLEASE name your pictures actually on the jpg before you send it to me – your name and what the picture is if not obvious. In the subject of your email put the page the picture is aimed 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 of pictures and there is always the risk of attributing it to the wrong person!
This is where we select a photograph of Beautiful Rhoscolyn from those sent in. This one from Caro is of Four Mile Bridge (actually part of Rhoscolyn):
If you have a photograph of our beautiful village that you think others might like to share, then do send it in to the address in the footer.
