- Easter Sunday at St David’s, Cregrina
- Easter Messy Church at Hundred House Hall
The heaviest snowfall since 1982, and the most amazing snowdrifts.
Sincere thanks to everyone who took part in or attended our Christmas concert. The concert raised £240 for the adult carers group in Llandrindod, which is part of the registered charity Credu that supports unpaid carers of all ages. All money goes directly to the members of the group to use to improve their quality of life and give them a little ‘TLC’. Some of the parishioners of St Bridget’s Church, Llansantffraed, who helped organise the concert, are pictured.
After Snow Sunday on 10 December (see ‘Snow’ page) came Snow Monday with brilliant blue skies & sunshine followed by minus 10 during the night. These photos were taken in Glascwm on Snow Monday.
Service of Remembrance at Bettws Church
A beautiful, solemn & moving Service of Remembrance in which the names of local residents & a German air crew who had lost their lives in service during both World Wars were read out. The artwork was created by local children at Franksbridge School.
In our second month of ‘Coffee Connection’ we were pleased to welcome back many old friends, whilst also making several new ones.
So please do join us on any 2nd Wednesday of the month at Hundred House Hall – 10am – 12 noon. Stay for a while or for the whole two hours, we would love to see you.
