Llanfynydd Parish Church
Benefice Of Catheiniog
The Vicar, Church Wardens and members of the above church wish to convey their grateful thanks and appreciation to members of the community for their continuity in maintaining the church yard in its pristine condition. Situated as it is in the centre of the village, St. Egwad’s church, built around 1291 is a very old edifice and it is very pleasing to see its grounds looking so well kept.
It is very pleasing, when we are in the throes of a pandemic that people have not forgotten the Christian ethic of helping their neighbours.
As in many churches our congregation is very sparse and elderly, unable to carry out the many tasks involved with the church, our finances are not sufficient to employ a groundsman.
Our church roof is leaking badly and we were wondering how to solve the problem. It is said that “God moves in many and various ways his wonders to perform “ when along comes a good Samaritan Mr Derek Harrison, Sannon Court (the old vicarage). He is going to run a ‘Virtual Brighton Marathon’ around Penybont-Bryn-yr-Eglwys-Bronglyn-Farmers-Penybont and is seeking sponsorship, where all the money raised will go to repair the church roof. There are additional sponsorship leaflets circulating giving precise details of how to participate.
To Spencer’s Derek please contact the church treasurer Mr Cliff Price at Penlan House on 01558668659. All Cheques to be made out to LLANFYNYDD CHURCH-BUILDING MAINT FUND.
We hope the community will support Derek wholeheartedly in this arduous task that he is about to undertake to safeguard the future of the Parish Church.

We ask that all horse owners/competitors act responsibly and be vigilant for the signs of equine flu and only attend if your horse is fit and well. If in doubt please contact your own vet.

We remind all competitors that they and their animals attend Llanfynydd Show at their own discretion and own risk.
