Derek Wilmott and Mike Featherstone have made a massive contribution to the Community Centre, and by connection to the community, for more than 20 years in both practical and managerial roles. It wouldn’t be possible to begin to do justice to all their achievements and duties here but as a small token of appreciation a presentation was made to them at this year’s Llangors Youth and Community Centre AGM.
A very successful coffee morning was held in the Community Centre on Thursday, September 16th, in aid of Ryley’s Everest Challenge.Ryley and his family attended the event and mum Kate gave an outline of Ryley’s condition and explained how it has affected his mobility. Ryley decided he wanted to do this challenge not only to aid his recovery, but also to help the children in the village to get a much needed play park by raising funds for it. A grand total of £1006.33 was raised during the morning. Many thanks to everyone who came to the coffee morning and gave so generously.Special thanks go to Ryley and his family, also to Ordrith for selling raffle tickets, Anne and Avril for serving coffees, Ailsa for selling Bric a Brac, Chris for selling cards, Julie and Ryley for selling cakes and Kath for selling plants.Well done Ryley and thank you for raising funds for the play park. We wish Ryley every success in his rehabilitation and fundraising challenge.
The ‘Mike the Spy’ cup and children’s boules event was a great success on Sunday 24th. All ages enjoyed a sunny afternoon of friendly competition and socialising on the old village hall site. We actually played to the proper rules thanks to Gareth Smart and colleague from the Brecon Petanque club who came along to support us. Many thanks to everyone who helped make it happen.

Llangors Youth and Community Centre in Powys has created a new community garden area, complete with flower beds, picnic tables, bird feeders and vegetable planters for local residents to enjoy.
The project, which was funded with a grant of £2,500 from the Morrisons Foundation, is to encourage social interaction between older and younger members of the community, which before the development of the garden had no outdoor community facilities.
Melrose East, chair of Llangors Community Centre explains: “This is such a much needed space in the middle of a small village in Mid Wales where people of all ages can meet, socialise and play especially during these extraordinary times. We are so grateful to the Morrisons Foundation for donating money to enable this project to be realised”.
Joe Scargill, Morrisons Foundation specialist said: “The challenges of the past 18 months mean that people are eager to get out of the house and enjoy the outdoors more than ever. That’s why I’m absolutely thrilled that Llangors Community Centre have been able to provide such a great outdoor area for the whole community to enjoy.”
“The transformation the charity has made to the area cannot be underestimated, it really is a massive improvement and they should be really proud of their amazing achievement of providing this excellent outdoor space. Supporting local community projects like this is what the Foundation is all about and I’m delighted that we have been able to make a difference”
The Morrisons Foundation was set up by Morrisons supermarket in 2015 and awards grants for charity projects which help improve people’s lives. Since launching, over £33 million has been donated to hundreds of charities across England, Scotland and Wales.
Despite the forecast and initial drizzle a great time was had by all walking through the fields to the two farms. Many, many thanks to Julie and family at Crickie Farm and to Beth Williams and family at Llwyn Bedw (Birchgrove). They gave us a wonderful welcome with seriously good nourishment and an inspiring garden visit!
As well as having an enjoyable day, hopefully valuable funds will have been raised for the play park. Thanks to everyone who walked.
