Last Vestry Venture this year

this coming  Monday the 11thwill be our last Vestry this year  – and to say that even if they  have not been for a while, or have never come before, to please feel very welcome to join us between 3 and 5 pm for a glass of mulled wine and light refreshments, just for a catch up and to wish everyone a Happy Christmas……and that around 4.30pm there will be a 15 minute slot in the church to sing a carol, receive a  Christingle and hear a short Christmas story,  for those who wish to stay on.

Vestry Venture for all

The Vestry Venture came about as an idea to provide space where people of any age can informally meet together.  

Newcomers to the area are particularly welcome: it is also an opportunity to find out what is happening locally.  

Simple refreshments  are available for which there is no charge – although if you enjoy coming, contributions towards the cost of electricity are really helpful, and much valued.  

There are a few paperbacks to swop or share, and there is a safe play area for small children. From time to time there are items for sale such as plants or clothes.  

The vestry adjoins the church, and the entrance is usually indicated by Winnie the Pooh sitting on a chair outside, on a Monday afternoon – but if the wind and rain is very heavy, he sometimes disappears, usually having been bowled down the path……

We are closed during school holiday time but otherwise open on Mondays (re-starting  11th September),  3-5pm.

Please feel free to drop by one Monday, even if only for ten minutes – you will be most welcome.  Ideas how this venture might develop further are always appreciated.

A Junior Section in The Reading Room

Should we have a Junior Section for Llansadwrn Reading Room?

The Llansadwrn Reading Room Committee is able to set up a Junior Section if this is something of interest to Under 18s in our Community. 

Under 18s cannot become full members of the Committee but could have a valuable role to play in helping us to use the Reading Room for activities or events that they would  like to see happening . 

This is the first step in seeing if there is a need, what kinds of activities they would be interested  in & any other thoughts as to how this might develop. 

It could be a great opportunity to provide something for our young people & increase the use of our Reading Room. 

We would be grateful for everyone’s ideas, under and over 18s ! 

The RR will consider comments  & suggestions  in our next meeting … it will help us find a way make this happen. 

There will be posters & a suggestions box in the Reading Room within the next few days . Alternatively, please let me or other  members of the RR Committee know your thoughts .

Watch this space !
