Community Group Christmas Trees

Christmas trees donated by local groups are on display at St. Mary’s Church in Cilcain, each of which have been decorated to represent the group who have donated it. The Cor Cilcain tree (decorated by Kath Mason) has been adorned with beautiful silver musical notes, the WI tree features hand-knitted nativity figures, and the ‘Share Aid’ tree has been decorated with knitted scarves and hats which will be distributed among the homeless after Christmas. Lovely!

The Grand Unveiling!

Here’s some photos of the new WI ‘A Century of Memories’ board being installed outside the Village Hall last Friday, 1st December by Rich of Heat and Beat – Artist Blacksmith, from Dyserth.

Will Topley kindly wrapped it up after the installation to allow a surprise ‘reveal’ at the WI Café the next day, where there was a fantastic turnout, despite the Wales game being on TV!
The board was unveiled by Lesley and Robin Williams – Lesley is an ex-president of Cilcain WI, and one of Robin’s aunts was a founding member of the Cilcain branch in 1935, so it was fitting that they did the honours!

Special thanks to Gwen Hardman for spearheading the whole project – all your hard work has finally come to fruition, and we now have a lovely addition to our village

Cilcain history revealed!

Had a quick peek in the Hall this morning to see what Gwen Hardman and Sue Jones were up to yesterday.
They were working hard all day, overseeing the installation of the blacksmith’s ‘history board’ outside the Hall, courtesy of Rich of Heat and Beat – Artist Blacksmith, and also putting up displays of work inside the Hall by the children of Ysgol y Foel showcasing their collaboration with the WI on the ‘A Century of Memories’ project.
The end result is absolutely fantastic and the café this afternoon promises to be fascinating one, where you’re bound to find out lots of interesting facts about our lovely village!
They’ve even put up the Christmas decorations, as well – thank you for your all your hard work, ladies!
Did I mention there’ll be WI cakes and mulled wine, too?
