We hope you will find this list of local places to stay in the Upper Usk Valley helpful – we have a good mix of serviced, self catering accommodation and camping.
There is a meeting on Tuesday 23rd June at The White House in Sennybridge from 7pm to which all of the local and wider community are welcome.
The purpose of this meeting is for collecting information, stories, anecdotes and pictures of rural life in the local community. The information gathered will be used to help with the development of some walking leaflets showing the history of this area being produced by Meinter Brycheiniog.
The Upper Usk Valley Group are specifically also looking for any memorabilia etc from the flooding of the Usk Valley when the Usk Reservoir was built 60 years ago as they are hoping to hold a commemoration service at Traianglas Church in the week of August 7th with a display for visitors to peruse.
The meeting is on Tuesday 23rd June at The White House in Sennybridge from 7pm.
The last meeting of the Upper Usk Valley Group tonight was held June 4th at 6.30pm at Cobblers Cafe, Sennybridge.
The agenda can be seen here: UUV Meeting Agenda 4th June 2015
The minutes will be posted in due course.
In August 2015 Trecastle will be hosting the official Agincourt exhibition which is circulating the area over the Summer. The Friends Of St David’s have decided to stage the exhibition with a flower festival to be held over the weekend of 15th and 16th August in St David’s Church, Llywel.
The theme for the weekend will be: ‘The Archer’s Journey’ with each display depicting one of the villages or towns that the bowmen visited on route from Carmarthen to Southampton. The Friends are in the process of asking local groups and volunteers to prepare floral arrangements and at the same time approaching local businesses to ask if they would consider sponsoring the event. Donations would be used to fund the flowers used for the arrangements and cover the printing cost to publicise the event.
Sponsorship Option 1 – £20 – the name of the supporting business will be included in the flower festival catalogue
Sponsorship Option 2 – £25 – the name and contact details of the supporting business will be included in the flower festival catalogue
Sponsorship Option3 – £50 – giving 1/8 of an A4 page within the flower festival catalogue.
If you would like to donate, please contact Gillian Byrne via email: firstname.lastname@example.org for a sponsorship form.
The Upper Usk Valley group were in attendance at the 2014 Sennybridge Show with a well dressed stand which won 2nd place and a smart blue rosette – well done team! The newly reprinted leaflets were available in Welsh and English and attracted a lot of interest. Interesting displays on the Defynnog Yew Tree and local Dark Sky Discovery Sites and a map showing the UUV area all helped to show what a vibrant community we live in.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words so the following images can speak for themselves about what a fabulous day it was yesterday at the Sennybridge Show.
