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.

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 ! 

Covid 19 and Llansadwrn


After much discussion and weighing the pros and cons, it has been decided to discontinue many of our indoor events for the time being – not an easy decision but given the circumstances arguably it is one to make earlier, rather than later. It is a very difficult time with so much uncertainty – and trying to do the right thing, balancing normality with good sense about the risk, is not without its problems: there is no blue print to guide us!

Meantime, a list is being compiled of anyone who would welcome an occasional phone call to make sure they are still ok / need anything / shopping / or whatever: if you think of anyone and you have their permission for their name and contact details to be shared, please let Jane Shaw or Vicar Viv know: similarly the names of anyone free, willing and able themselves to offer giving their support in this way…

Of course many already have local friends / family / neighbours who mutually support one another all the time, which is perfect – but there are some, especially if they are living on their own, in the vulnerable category and without family nearby, who could fall through the net if they catch the virus and self-isolate, without anybody else knowing they are unwell.

To ensure that people do not end up isolated we are also organising a regular outdoor walk around the village, and we will also be doing work in the community garden to prevent isolation.

Weather permitting next Saturday morning (21st) we intend to have a community walk in the morning, meeting at the Reading Room at 10am and then a community garden in the afternoon from around 2pm. We have habitats to make and dogwood cuttings to plant. Keep an eye on the events page for updates and new opportunities for meeting up and not hugging.

As a community we commit to keep each other safe whilst not getting isolated. If you are feeling isolated or anxious you are surrounded by a loving community – please ask for help.
