Volunteer to Clear the Play Area – Update 23/6/21

John and Ben Rees have been working on the play park for the past two days and have transformed it!!! Still a bit of work to do but nearly ready for play equipment now.Take a look if you have a moment or else come along on Saturday morning

More work on the play park – Saturday June 12th.

June 5th 2021. More volunteers came to the play park on Saturday to help clear the site ready for play equipment. Picnic tables, one with access for a wheelchair, and benches have been ordered. Why not join in the fun next Saturday?? 10.00 – 12.00

We will be planning a ‘Picnic in the Park’ at the end of June (details to follow) when we would like to firm a sub group of local people to take the project forward.

A fence has been erected around the play park on Friday. We have cleared some of the paths and had some trees cut down which were causing problems. Hopefully some tables and benches will be obtained, which will ensure that there is a safe area for children to play and a place for families and friends to meet.

The Euros have now arrived at the play area with a set of goals.

BREAK-INS

Sadly, our Community Centre has been broken into on at least three occasions over the past three weekends, twice over the May Bank Holiday weekend. Some damage occurred namely broken locks and doors, and the wheelchair has been broken beyond repair. As well as this, they left an awful mess in the main hall. Repairs have been undertaken with new locks and doors made secure. The Neighbourhood Policing Team have been informed. 

In the near future, it is hoped that we can work with the shop committee to share additional security measures.

If anyone sees anything suspicious when they are out walking, in or around the area of the Community Centre, then please ring 101, do not confront anyone.

Your help with this is very much appreciated.

The Llangors Community Shop is supporting the community thanks to National Lottery funding

Megs OslerLatest News    May 9, 2021  |  0

The Llangors Community Shop project is helping the local community during this challenging time thanks to the support of National Lottery players by establishing a local convenience store staffed largely by volunteers. It will be located next to the Youth and Community Centre in Llangors village and will open in summer 2021. Shares in the Community Benefit Society set up to own and run the shop will be offered for sale to members of the community. The community shop will enable Llangors residents to access retail goods and services without using a car and provide a shorter travelling distance for the wider local community. Equally important it will provide a community focus which is available from early morning until early evening on most days per week and provide training and work experience for all ages and abilities. The Llangors Community Shop Management Committee successfully applied for close to £100,000 from The National Lottery Community Fund. Mark Kerr is the Chairman of the Management Committee of Llangors Community Shop. He had this to say about the grant from the National Lottery Community Fund to the Llangors Community Shop project:”The shop committee in Llangors has been working for over two years to bring about a community-run convenience store and small café which would meet the needs of the people who live around Llangors Lake. There has not been a shop of this character in the area for many years, and the lack is sorely felt. We are now nearing completion and this has only been made possible by a generous grant from the National Lottery Community Fund, which will enable us to erect premises and start trading by the end of the summer.We believe this grant, which goes right to the heart of the community, will greatly strengthen the social fabric of Llangors and neighbouring villages and settlements. As a committee, we would like to express our warmest thanks to the National Lottery Community Fund for supporting this exciting venture.”

Llangors Telephone Kiosk Seed/Plant Exchange

The telephone kiosk in the middle of Llangors now has a new purpose in life! It is being used by members of the public to share and/ or exchange seeds and plants. If you have any surplus seeds or plants that you would like to donate, please leave them in the kiosk. Similarly, if there is anything there you would like to take from the kiosk, then please do so. It is all free of charge. There is hand sanitiser in the kiosk to use.

Christmas Tree

  • Pictures of Christmas Trees

For the first time in many years, the Christmas tree on the old village hall site, at the junction in Llangors, has been decorated with red fairy lights topped with a green star. The tree on the triangle has also been decorated.

Our thanks are extended to Sam Ridge, a resident of Llangors, who sourced the lights and put them on the tree. Many thanks also to those who contributed towards the cost of the lights. The staff and residents of Brookside Care Home made woolen pom poms which have been used to decorate the trees. Many thanks to them also.

I’m sure you will agree that it looks very festive this year!! 

Play Park and Community Shop Leases Signed

On Tuesday November 17th, a 25 year lease for a Community Asset Transfer of ground from Powys County Council to Llangors Youth and Community Centre was signed by Melrose East (Chair) and Lawrence Duffy (Treasurer). This portion of ground, on the site of the old Primary School, will, in due course, be  a children’s play park.


Following this momentous signing, another signing took place. This was for a 5 year lease for a portion of ground where the old play park was sited, adjacent to the Community Centre. This is where a community run shop will be built, another vital facility for our village.


Exciting times!!
