Croeso i wefan gymunedol Llanynys a Rhewl
Welcome to the Llanynys and Rhewl Community web site
Jean Wallis the Secretary informs us that she has had meetings with the Council regarding Village Enhancement which include placing planters around the village. These hopefully be insitu next week, when the Gardening Club will be responsible for planting and maintaining them.
The bench at Dolydd is also been refurbished and Tess and Geoff have started this work.
The Club is also planning to have bulbs planted in the grass verges in and around the village for next spring.
We hope that the residents of Rhewl will appreciate the work that Jean and the Gardening Club members are doing and anyone interested in helping – please contact Jean on 07973 520110/01824 703954.
There is a very interesting series of meetings being held by the Club at the Pavilion throughout the year – please check the Gardening Club page on this Web site for further details.
The County Youth Bus has been to the Playing Field for a 6 week trial period which ended on Thursday night(16/5/2013) , and which was aimed at seeing if there was any support for a Youth Club in the village. The take up over the 6 weeks was good so we are now looking to see if we can get a Youth Club set up in the pavilion from the autumn onwards.
We will need to recruit at least 2 voluntary leaders, and preferably more if we can get them, so we will be putting up posters and advertising for these shortly. If we get anyone they will then be trained and supported by the County Youth Service. The Playing Field Committee intend to meet again in mid July to see if they are able to progress this and, if so, aim to start the youth club in September.

Brynhyfryd School Under 18 Football team, once again, reached a Welsh Schools National Final -3rd time in three years- they were unfortunate to lose on a penalty shoot-out following a 1-1 drawn game at TNS, Oswestry on Saturday 11th May. Their opponents were Ysgol yr Olchfa from the Swansea area with 1860 pupils and 460 students in the sixth form – the two schools also met in the under 14 final with the South Walian school winning 2-1 on that occasion. In the Under 18 match Brynhyfryd were the better team but conceded a late goal to take the game into a penalty shoot-out. Two local lads who played were Bryn Jones and Steven Willsdon and a third Ifan Hafal comes from good Rhewl stock being the the grandson of Megan and Gwynedd Jones, previously of Gwynlys.
The Club now has its own page on this webpage under the option Clubs, also the calendar has a full list of events.

The sun shone on Rhewl when we finally had our Funday following the cancellation of the planned event in June due to terrible weather. It was heartening to see so many people and their children on the Playing field and enjoying themselves.
The Presidents of the day were Gwynfor and Betty Evans who have recently moved from Bryn Afon to Ruthin and of course they are the parents of Rhian – the hard working Secretary of the Playing Field’s Fund raising Committee.
The Sixties night in the Pavilion was a disappointment with numbers down on previous similar events – the Fund raising Committee would like to hear your opinion on this and any ideas on other fund raising ideas.
