FluteOn Sunday 15th April Forest Flute Choir and friends will present “Anything Goes” – a medley of music from the flute choir together with duets, solos and other instrumentalists.

Glade Tavern Charity Night

February’s Glade Tavern, on trellech schoolFriday 2nd February, will be in aid of Trellech Primary School Parents, Teachers and Friends Association.  While most months the Tavern’s profits go to village hall funds, and these have enabled us to plan substantial improvements to hall facilities, we also want the benefit to go to other groups in the community. The PTFA does a great job of supporting our local school and its children and we think they are a well deserving cause.

The Tavern will be open at 7pm as usual, with fish and chip suppers available.  The team look forward to welcoming everyone back after the Christmas and New Year break.  Do join neighbours and friends for a great social evening for a great cause.TheGladeSwingingSignSmall

Footpaths Project: News Update

We hope that as many people as possible were able to enjoy walking in the woodlands around the village during the wonderful snowy weather.  Unfortunately, the snow has brought down a lot of trees and branches across our footpaths, so in order to get them cleared we are building a list of where work is needed.  If you come across across a route that is blocked, please send an email to brian_mahony@outlook.com with a note of the location (OS grid reference if possible) and a brief description of the blockage and we will notify the right people.

We have had an update from Natural Resources Wales with the good news that they expect to have the Beacon Hill Car Park re-opened in time for the New Year.

Many thanks to all of the volunteers who have helped with the Footpath Project in 2017.  We look forward to continuing with more improvements to our local paths in 2018.
