Charity Coffee Morning
A Christmas charity coffee morning was held on Thursday, December 9th raising money for Brecon Women’s Refuge. Festive refreshments were available as well as some stalls selling cakes, cards and bric a brac. The local Parkinsons Group had their own stall selling crafts. Thanks to the ladies of the village who provided the cakes and to Ordrith Quarrell who ran the raffle. A total of £251.33 was raised. Julie Pugh kindly took the money to the local refuge.
On Monday, December 13th, a fantastic Christmas lunch was held in the Community Centre for residents of villages around the lake. A total of 38 people attended and it was great to see Pat and Dave Hope attend as well as Lena Hughes. We all enjoyed a glass of sherry on arrival followed by an amazing spread of sandwiches, sausage rolls and quiche and then, if there was room, sherry trifle or Christmas pudding and all swilled down with as much white wine as you wanted. A huge thanks to Linda Kells and her team of elves who prepared all the food and served it on the day. All people attending took a lateral flow test before the meal.
On Sunday December 19th, a rather foggy, cold but dry evening, a group of about 20 volunteers from the village, including a family from Cardiff who were staying in the area, walked around Llangors singing carols and festive songs. The group visited Brookside Nursing Home and sang outside to the residents who were warm and snug inside. They appreciated the singing and the staff thanked us for our efforts. At the end of the evening we received a warm welcome at the Castle Pub where Mike and Michelle treated us all to mulled wine and mince pies.
A total of £250 was raised for Llangors Play Park. Well done to all who sang and thank you to all who contributed.
