Welcome to the January 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 Christmas. Thanks to all of you who took the time to send in your seasonal photographs – there are some goodies (see the Gallery page). Below is one fun one from Ted Jones (he assures me that this is a photograph of his original artwork, so it does just about count and was in any case too good not to share). There is another comic one in the margin from Tim Wilson.

Valentines/love/hearts. Send your pictures in to the address in the footer. 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 is from Louise Littlewood. If YOU have a shot of our beautiful village that you think others might like to share, then do send it in to the address in the footer.
