Llandyssil News

Llandyssil Community Charitable Trust

Llandyssil Wildflower Meadow: The Council congratulate all involved, for taking the initiative, applying for funding and bringing the community together to create the wildflower meadow on the Dragon Field.

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 recently 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.

the village craft group

The next meeting will be on Tuesday 30th August. All gatherings are in the Old School Hall from 1:30pm to 3:30pm. The cost is £2 plus £1 for refreshments with all profits going to charity. All are welcome to work on their crafts or just sit and chat over a cuppa or two. Look forward to seeing you all.

Llandyssil Ladies Club

Llandyssil Ladies Club continues to enjoy a varied programme of speakers and events.

We are planning an outing to Welshpool Airfield where we will hear about the work of the Air Ambulance. Other outings are in the planning stage.

Please come along and join us if you're interested in hearing from people in your community and you enjoy refreshments and a chat. An ideal place to make new friends!

We meet the third Tuesday of the month. Look out for the posters in the village with all the details.

For further information, please contact: Marilyn Pettit 668523 or Lynn Davies 668247.

MEG Free Bicycle Scheme

The scheme has been flourishing over the past year with over 520 refurbished bikes passed on free after necessary work and refurbishment. We also carry out servicing to anyone’s bike to get them back on the road free of charge unless there is a major component that needs renewing, when the material price is charged.

So, if you’re looking for a bike give Brett a ring on 01686 669730 and we should be able to fit you up.

Getting on a bike not only gets you fitter but also saves CO2. Recycling a bike saves about ½ tonne of CO2 compared to making a new one.

Village Walking Group

We have now had regular village walking groups on the 4th Wednesday of the month and we usually  join the Montgomery Walking Group on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. In addition to that we are invited to Berriew group every month so there are plenty of organised walks for you to join.

Last Autumn, Gwyneth Jones, one of our Community Councillors asked me to renovate the Llandyssil Walks notice board which is attached to the wall of the bus shelter. It had been there for years and was looking quite neglected. It is now repaired and re-attached to the wall and I hope by the time you’re reading this, it is full of details about many of the local walks. Full details will also soon be on the village website.

The more folk use the many paths we have, the more we will have the opportunity to mark and upgrade the routes and to replace the old stiles which remain in a few places. So please get out there and enjoy our wonderful countryside.

Please remember the Country Code:

• be considerate of others living and working in the countryside

• leave gates as you find them

• keep to the way-marked paths

• take all your litter home

• keep your dog under close control (ie. on a short lead), especially around livestock and pick up and properly dispose of any dog waste

Look out for details of up-coming walks and join us if you can to share the beautiful area in which we are very fortunate to live. If you would like more details please contact me.
