Towy Valley Pylon Scheme

It was lovely to see so many of Julie's friends and neighbours calling by the hall at Bethlehem on Saturday 20th August 2022 to look at the collection of paintings and albums which we had put out on display.

Although everyone knew that she had been an artist, very many had no idea that for years, she was the go-to person for painting the dogs of royalty, and the rich and famous, and it was amazing to see reproductions of those works on Saturday.

In all, some thirty people dropped in over the course of the evening, and everyone had fond memories, and many a tale to relate about the times they had spent with Julie.

The interest in her paintings was considerable, with clear enthusiasm for an opportunity to purchase a few pieces, so we will be organising this in the autumn, and we will have a few extra images available which weren't on display on Saturday - newly donated by one of Julie's friends.

And to those of you - most of you! - who bought a drink or two from Bar Bethlehem, a huge thank you as the bar profit was equal to several lots of hall hire fees, and really helps us meet our ever rising utilities and bills. Every bottle of beer or can of cola does make a difference - diolch!

Nia and Team




There are several local collection points for people to leave donations for Ukrainian refugees, Hengwrt in Llandeilo is one. See below for details and items needed.

Llangadog, Llandeilo and Llandovery Men's Shed


My name is Mike. 2020 hasn't been good to me, lost my wife in January followed by the Corona virus.

So being left on my own I wondered how to move on when I remembered reading an article about Mens Sheds. I decided I wanted to give something back to the community whilst gaining some good company, so how to go about it. I searched Men's Sheds on the interweb and found there was nothing local so I thought lets start one!

The Shed is really at the planning stage with an advert in the local Post June issue to see if there is any support. The Shed has premises comprising of two large sheds and two greenhouses available and would welcome help and advice on progressing the project further. The Shed is open to anyone and any project suggestions like gardening, woodworking, 3D printing, push bike and other refurbishments, what's your passion?

If you feel lonely or have any ideas then please take that first step and give me a call on 07585 226555 for a chat about anything anytime. If email is easier then its

If you're interested then please visit for more info. 

Remember, when it rains look for rainbows. When it's dark, look for stars.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Bethlehem is at last set to get it's own defibrillator fitted at the hall. The Community Council kindly purchased the device for the community, which means no fundraising was needed. We are now looking for volunteers to undergo a short training session, with Heart Wales, at the hall.

Ideally, you need to live either in, or very close to the village, and be willing to use the machine should the need arise, although it goes without saying that everyone hopes that will never happen. The team from Heart Wales will bring the defibrillator with them on training day, the box which houses it has already arrived.

So if you'd like to volunteer, please email me or have a word with myself, Wyn or any of the management team, and once we have a group of people interested, then we will arrange a mutually convenient date with Heart Wales for the training session.




Anyone wishing to join the Llangadog Snooker Club please feel free to call me 07720801197.

We have now set up a facebook page for the Llangadog Community Hall - where we shall be placing any events that are due to happen in the Community Hall, plus we shall also ensure that events are advertised for all to see in the village, as and where we are able to, plus in the Community Hall on the noticeboard.
