Summer Happenings 2017RHOSCOLYN MEMORIES

Those of you who attended the Rhoscolyn Memories at St Gwenfaen’s Hall on 28 and 29 July, will I’m sure have enjoyed seeing all the interesting artefacts on display. The event was not intended to be an exhibition as such, but it was soon apparent that many people, past and present residents, regular and casual visitors, were keen to share and appreciate the range of artefacts brought to the hall.  Over 200 people visited, enjoying refreshments and a ‘paned’, rekindling friendships, meeting cousins for the first time or just to savour a window into a past way of life, people and events still remembered today. £264.94 was raised at the event – via a voluntary collection box.

COFFEE MORNING & AFTERNOON TEA

Held on Saturday 12 August a Coffee Morning and Afternoon Tea event was held at the hall We raised £562.70 for St Gwenfaen’s Church funds.

OPEN CHURCH – AUGUST

We had a total of 134 visitors this year, plus a pilgrimage visit of 50 from the Brighton area.  When we are in Church preparing for services we often show people around.  This year there have been several people visit who are relatives of previous rectors/vicars etc and we have ourselves learned more about our church and the immediate area.  We collected £102.12.  And others have promised cheques.           ——————————–
