Here is some really useful, interesting and important information about trees in the vicinity of St Hilary which was posted recently on Facebook by Ewart Schofield of ESA Treecare.
The assessment group set up to consider how the donation from the BBC should be spent has come to a conclusion – a massive thank you to the thirteen members and all the other villagers who suggested ideas and contributed to the analysis – at the end of this email are details of the decision making process and how you can find out more
20 ideas for spending the money were put forward by over 40 villagers
These were narrowed down to 6 ideas to consider in more detail and the conclusion is that 3 ideas should be funded:
- planting of bulbs around St Hilary
- purchase of a marquee for the village
- the installation of a picnic table or bench
The walks and strolls section of the website includes:
- The 10 core circular walks from St Hilary ranging from gentle strolls (1 to 2 miles) to monster expeditions (over 10 miles)
- 4 different routes to Cowbridge, which can be combined for circular routes
- Strolling over The Clump for a takeaway coffee at Stalling Café or round the Garn or to Beaupre Castle
Lynn and Bruce Rankin are collecting food donations on behalf of the Cardiff Vineyard church in Cardiff. The food will be distributed to those in desperate need. Examples include tinned soup, tinned tomatoes, baked beans, instant coffee, rice, pasta, UHT milk, cereal, biscuits – but no fresh items
Please leave donations with Lynn and Bruce at Hendre in a box in their carport (on the right about 100 yards past the phone box on the lane towards Llantrithyd – here’s the link to the map of village houses)
Click on this link for a pdf file of a map of the location of houses in the village - useful if you need to provide directions to family, friends or delivery van drivers. There are two pages: the first is of houses in the centre of the village, the second is of outlying houses.
"We are a young family looking to move back to South Wales and find a home to bring up our children in the area. We would love to find a property in the St Hilary community. If you are considering selling, then we would love to have an informal chat. We are hoping to find a house with at least four bedrooms. We have no chain and could move more or less quickly as is convenient. Please do let us know if you think it’s worth discussing. Thank you"
The Studio is in a fantastic location right in the heart of our picturesque village.
There are also a series of wonderful walks which start right outside the accommodation.
