Historic Walks

Have you ever wanted to see a Norman castle, a Roman road, an Iron Age hillfort or a Bronze Age burial site? Or perhaps you would like to know about the woollen industry in our area or see an old railway station? Now is your opportunity to discover the rich history of our community while at the same time enjoying healthy exercise.

The Llanfihangel-ar-arth and Parish Local history club is pleased to announce that it has produced a bilingual booklet of eight historical walks. The journeys are of varying distances and will take from one to three and a half hours, though the longest can be done by car. The walks begin in Alltwalis, Gwyddgrug, Llanfihangel and Pencader and will be of interest to visitors and local residents. The booklet gives a detailed description of each walk together with outline maps.

Copies are free of charge and can be obtained from Club members. Please ring Calvin Griffiths 384812, or Gerald Coles 384987. The booklet was officially launched on May 7th and the photo shows Club members with their copies.

We are grateful to the Statkraft Alltwalis Wind Farm Community Benefit Trust for a grant towards the costs of printing.

Knit an Elephant Campaign

Do you love knitting? Fancy a new project? Try your hand at knitting one of these cute little woolly elephants, and help raise funds for our new hospice.

Skanda Vale Hospice is run by the monks and nuns of Skanda Vale Monastery – a sanctuary for hundreds of birds and animals. Standing head and shoulders above this menagerie of beasties is our beloved temple elephant Valli.
Elephants are close to many people’s hearts. Valli has greatly enriched the lives of many of our patients and volunteers – meeting her can be a moving and memorable ‘bucket list’ kind of encounter.Valli inspired Cath (our Clinical Nurse Manager) to take up her knitting needles once again, and create a whole herd of baby wooly elephants. They’re selling like hot cakes – Cath can’t keep up with demand, so we really need your help!
Using the pattern below (or any other pattern if you prefer) choose your colour yarn and get knitting. When your elephant is finished please post it to us – or sell it on our behalf. We recommend between £8 and £12 as a guide price. Here’s the address to post it to:
Sister Gemma
Skanda Vale Hospice

If it’s not practical to post us your elephant then you could always sell them locally and donate the proceeds to the hospice. Please contact Sister Gemma: sister.gemma@skandavalehospice.org if you have any questions. Have fun!
