The Grange Open Space, Wenvoe



The Vale of Glamorgan Council has recently undertaken a number of improvements to facilities in the village, using Section 106 monies received from new developments. Improvements include the new play areas at the Grange and Twyn Yr Odyn, and the new library building. There are still monies remaining. These are for the provision or improvement of public open spaces and community facilities in Wenvoe. The Council is exploring opportunities in the area, including further enhancements at the Grange Open Space. What would you like to see here? Are there any other spaces or community facilities you would like to see improved? The Council would like to hear your views. Please see the possibilities outlined below and complete the feedback form to share your views at https://www.valeofglamorgan.gov.uk/en/our_council/consultation/Play-Area-Improvements.aspx.

We request anyone who wishes to attend, emails their request to the clerk  as due to covid restrictions we will be limited on numbers in the hall. As such should several members of the public wish to attend regarding  the same or similar matter then only one group member be able to attend. At present we may not be able to accept all requests due to Covid hall limitations.


Covid precautions apply, as such please do not attend if you are feeling unwell especially if you are experiencing symptoms of Covid.  On arrival please pay attention to the signage around the community centre, scan the QR Code or provide your details to a Council representative . There is a one way system in place.  Please adhere to the following guidelines;


  • Stay at home should you feel unwell
  • Use Hand Sanitisers around the centre
  • Follow the one way system
  • Keep your distance – 2m social distancing is in place
  • Avoid touching your face

You will also be required to wear a mask which will only be allowed to be removed when seated  during the meeting, unless you can provide your exempt card.





Village Hall Volunteers


Over a period of a couple of weeks in lockdown, youngsters playing football in the carpark of the village hall caused damage to the central heating overflow pipe, guttering and two outside lights Unfortunately the broken glass, found when the playgroup arrived, had to be swept up before the children could be allowed in.

The hall was painted last summer to create a warm welcome to groups returning to use the facilities. The walls have now had to be washed because of footballs being kicked up against them. Our cleaner generously did this, without being asked.

The Covid situation means we have been unable too pen so there is no money coming in except from playgroup. The cost of the repairs and the possibility of having to install CCTV is a concern to us.

There is a sign in the carpark saying ‘No football’. The boys have been asked on a number of occasions not to play in the car park but have just ignored us. The police have been informed of the damage caused and are looking into it.

The hall is there for all in the village to enjoy and residents are very supportive of this facility. So we are asking the parents of these youngsters to help us by informing them to please not play football in the village hall carpark. Thank you.

Suggestions for Spending £75000


September 2020

In the September issue of What’s On, we asked for suggestions for making use of about £75,000 of Section 106 funding for a project that would be of significant benefit to the Wenvoe community. This would be capital spending, not for any kind of maintenance or refurbishment.

This is a summary of the excellent suggestions we had, most of which could be carried out within the specified budget. We would now like to ask if there are any more suggestions, or if anyone would like to comment further on the ones below.

  • small donation to school (not capital)
  • adult outdoor fitness equipment (like Dinas Powys)
  • local walks/cycling booklet(s), with benches along the routes
  • all-weather surface for older children, covered seating area
  • similar to above
  • ditto, with basketball hoops and outdoor gym
  • mini-gym for older children
  • information notice boards
  • revamp playground at Parc y Gwenfo
  • more benches at Community orchards
  • multi-use games area


As before, write to What’s On, but don’t delay, since the funding is available on a limited time basis. We look forward to hearing from you



VE Day 75 Celebrations






I am in the process of compiling an album of photographs taken during the VE75 day celebrations around the village. I already have upwards of one hundred but would love any more that could be sent to me to add to them. I think this will prove to be a really lovely addition to Wenvoe history archives and is particularly important as a visual record of a joyful day in trying and unusual times. If you have any photographs that you would like to include please copy them into an email to me at pukkatucker@gmail.com


Thank you,

Glenys Tucker
