The December Roving Photographer






Helen Morgan, who lives in Gwenfo Drive, was seen clearing weeds from the pavement on Old Port Road. She has to work on her own though, as she is just too young to join the environment team!!

These two sprightly Wenvoe men have 140 years between them. Dave [left] and Barry still like to show off their skills and have no intention of putting their feet up.




Cutting Back The Roses


On a beautiful autumn morning the team set about cutting back the roses on the village green. Ieuan brought along his new cordless hedge trimmer and demonstrated its effectiveness. Team member Brian was absent due to being summoned to Switzerland to work on the Hadron Collider. Have looked it up and apparently it’s quite impressive.

Our next get together will be on the 8th November at 9.30 to clear the area at the entrance to Clos Llan Fair.



A Flurry Of Activity


September saw a flurry of activity on the footpath leading to the sports field. Our youngest member, Martin, had been repeatedly stung by wasps while clearing bamboo in the community cemetery before we elders had risen. The impetuousness of youth was the main cause, we of an older generation decided.


Of course, we have other members who worry us, like big John who has been missing in action before. So, when he arrived a tad late this time we were worried, but he said his dog had got other ideas about spending time outdoors and took John for a walk. Gareth’s enthusiasm had to be quelled or we would still be there now. Stalwarts Alan, Brian, Ian and the ageless Ieuan always give it their all and the footpath is all the better for it.

Our next meeting will be at the village green on Monday 11th October at 9.30am.






Orchid Field Working Party



Work continues on removing the overgrown brambles at the top of the field. The two biggest piles of cut material have now been burnt and the areas left to regenerate.

The next meet will be Monday, 17th May from 9.30am. If you want to join us please bring your own tools and thorn proof gloves



A Gorgeous Spring Morning


On a gorgeous Spring morning, a full squad tackled the front border at the Community Centre with unbound enthusiasm, spurred on by the return of Derby John, whose wit and raconteur has been sorely missed of late. We had a gentleman come along to see if he might join us in the future. Apparently he has a lot of experience with Age concern and thinks he will fit in quite nicely.C

Our next meeting will be on Monday 10th May at 9.30am, where we shall attempt to rejuvenate the entrance to the footpath at the top end of Walston Rd. On a personal note the team make it the best hours work for me of the month.



Invasive Bamboo Defeated


On a lovely crisp Spring morning the gang set about the bamboo in the community cemetery. Cheered on by walkers, we soon made short work of clearing it. I believe some of the team who worked hardest had noticed how quickly the cemetery was filling up and were worried about the spaces left for internment. On Sunday 7th March a few residents did a litter pick. The efforts of people like this help to keep Wenvoe a nice place to live.

Our next meeting is on Monday 12th April at 9.30am outside the Community Centre. If you would like to be as fit as this team, then join us.



Hardy Souls Behind the Cenotaph


At -20C the hardy souls set about clearing the overgrowth behind the cenotaph. Terry [he who must be obeyed] Ewington came to check that social distancing was being observed. Golden retriever Bungle passed by and refused all efforts of his owner to move Bungle on until he had been smoothed. If you would like to help us and learn some of Wenvoe’s history then Ian, Ieuan and the team would love to meet you. Our next gathering will be at 9.30am on the 8th March by the phone box.

January’s Planned Work Postponed


January’s Planned Work Postponed

Due to the rapid increase in Covid cases, it was decided that January’s planned work would be looked at next month. Most of the current team will hopefully have had their first vaccination by then, just saying.

Next meeting on Monday 8th February on the village green, where we will discuss our ambitions for the coming months.

The team would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the work done by the couple who regularly pick up the litter around the village.



Help Us With the Clean-up

Help Us With the Clean-up

The team met to clean up at the front of the community centre in October. We feel a civic duty to try and keep the village tidy. The one thing going for us at the present is the fact there are so few of us, that social distancing is never a problem. The team will meet again on the 9th Nov. in the phone box or on the village green if we have a good turn out
