Thank you to all the people, from the village, who attended Dennis’s Funeral at Aberystwyth Crematorium on Monday 19th February.

Dennis was a quiet man and enjoyed nothing more than walking his dog ‘Tilley’, playing golf and his music. He will be missed.


If you haven’t already heard the new telecoms cabinet in the village is now live. You can now order fibre and high speed broadband connections from your supplier. It has taken three and a half years so let’s hope it doesn’t take too long to get up and running.


Is there something that you would like to run at your Community Centre.

You will see from the monthly diary that there is no day time use on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays. The other days have limited use but also remember that there are two rooms.

See if you have a group of like-minded people who would want to get together and follow their interests and contact Malcolm Sumner.


It is with sadness that I announce the death of Lynda Bushby, late of Buckswood, Pennant. 

She passed away on the morning of 8th January, 2018, at Abermad Nursing Home after a long illness. 

The funeral will be private no cards or flowers please. 

Any enquiries to Anne McKenzie 01974 272804.


The Members’ Christmas Draw was made on Thursday 21/12/2017 at Pennant Community Centre during Coffee and Carols.

1st Prize: 132   -   Mansell Edwards       £50.00

2nd Prize: 79    -   Ed Brown                 £30.00

3rd Prize: 27    -   Donald Jones            £20.00


A further update, on when the ‘fast fibre broadband’ will be available, has been solicited from engineers. It has been stated that the service should be initiated sometime in January 2018.

Things have been delayed due to a problem that has arisen from an installation error.


If you have an email address please pass it to the newsletter editor.

FOR 2018

Help to improve your community and become part of it. 
Don’t be a Stranger
Wishing Everyone A Very Merry Christmas
Diolch i bawb yn Nadolig Llawen iawn

Thank you to everyone who has supported and helped at your Community Centre through 2016.

We need to get all those that live in the village to become part of the Community during 2017.

Always remember that there is always someone who can help in Pennant.

You shouldn't be a stranger in your own Community


This is the 9th Christmas that we, as a Community, have had the use of the old school building. As the Community own the building this should be a facility that can be used for many more years to come, if we all support and use it. The modern idiom, with people no supporting groups, organisations oe vents brings to mind the well worn saying, "Use It Or Lose It!".

Everyone should be proud of the work and support afforded by all the Directors/Trustees who freely give their time to organise events, maintain the building and look at options to raise funds or obtain grants to improve the facilities.
We always have room for people willing to volunteer or help in anyway.

I would like to thank all volunteers for their hard work and support this year, Ron & Debbie Cutler, David Edmonds, David Jeremiah, Annmarie Butlin, Ian Lampert, John & Elaine Bradshaw and our ever active Chairman and County Councillor Dafydd Edwards. Also everyone who answered the call when work parties were put together to sort out maintenance and cleaning of the building.

None of the above would matter if you the Community did not support the venture in attending the Clubs, Groups, Socials, etc. This is run for the Community by the Community. I would like to thank you all for your support.

I would like to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.

Why not see what you would like to have or organise at your Centre. Start something new for the New Year so others can join in. You only have to arrange the meeting time and date. No need for any formalities.

We are always looking for new ideas to make use of your community centre. At the present time there are very few day time activities so what ideas do you have? Remember that whatever is run at the Centre, as part of the community and not a commercial enterprise, does not have to be formal. It can just be a gathering of like-minded people with a common interest e.g. book club, table tennis group, darts group, mother & children group, etc.
‘Why Not Become A Part of Your Community’ - by running, helping to run, or organising existing events at the Centre. We are always looking for more helping hands or volunteers.
If you have any ideas for events, groups or functions or feel that you can or want to help with anything that is presently being run, or you can offer any other assistance please contact the newsletter editor
