The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
It is not long now to the start of an extended Bank Holiday to celebrate our Queen’s Jubilee. We hope that you can all join us at the planned events. Around the community people have been knitting to yarn bomb the area, setting up a wild life area, producing the wooden gifts and arranging three events over the long weekend.
Our Flag Painting and Coffee Morning 30th April was a huge success. We had visitors from Toronto as well as locally. Many flags were produced by both the children and the adult artists ready for displaying in June. The day raised £231.07 to support the costs of the events. Along with the grant of £500, this will be used to make the Sunday extra special.
Some stories from 1953 were collected around the time, but we would be interested in any memories or photographs of the coronation that you or your relations have. Please send them to us on either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Llandyssil Community Charitable Trust
Wild Flower Meadow: In honour of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and Peter Warlock, a renowned composer who played the organ at St. Tyssil’s Church, Llandyssil, we are creating a wildflower area in the Dragon Field in the far-left corner, near the stile.
Peter Warlock Society Grant: We’re happy to report that we received a grant of £450 from the Society to celebrate both the Peter Warlock Trail and the Wild Flower Meadow. Gwyneth Jones and I applied for an Awards for All Grant and only heard last week that this had been granted. This will allow us to purchase a picnic bench made from recycled plastic, so needs no maintenance.
To date, over 150 wildflower plants have been donated to the Meadow from local people, but we do need many more, so please pot-up whatever you’ve got and get them to Kathy at The Spires, Llandyssil (next to the Church).
Volunteer Working Party: I will set a couple of dates soon for a volunteer party to work on the site, if you can help then please contact Kathy on 01686 668922 or at email@example.com
Swift Boxes: Gwyneth, with the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust held a session at the Church recently. We all made swift boxes – such fun and so informative.
