Wenvoe Library Book Appeal

Since our last report in What’s On there have been delays, mainly due to the holiday period, which have resulted in our timetable slipping. We now expect to take over provision of the library service in mid-July.

Volunteers are continuing to be at the library alongside the member of the Vale Council library staff. If you are using the library please remember that it is still wholly a Vale Council service and it will not become a full Community Library until all the legal formalities are completed.



By the time you read this article the village library may have been transferred to the newly formed Wenvoe Community Library. Despite being given a start up lump sum by the Vale of Glamorgan Council the new library management will still need to raise funds to cover ongoing running costs.
Accordingly we have formed “The Friends of Wenvoe Library” for this purpose. Our initial activity is to run a second hand book sale several times a year. Our first day will be:

Saturday 3rd September 2016 from 10am to 1pm in the small room at the Community Centre.

Anyone who buys a book will become a friend of the library and will receive a free cup of tea/coffee and a biscuit. There is no entrance fee.
We need your support in two ways,

1. Please come and see if you can find a book you want
2. Whilst we have a small stock of books, we need more books.
If you have any books of any sort which you don’t want please let us know and we will collect them at your convenience.


If you have collected any books for us but forgotten to call us, please bring along any donated books on the day.
Thank you for your support

A Free Curry Night for Men!
Wenvoe Arms – 7.30pm Thursday July 21st

Blokes are invited for a curry and what’s better is Vale Village Church are going to pay for it! In The Arena is a chance to get together with your mates, meet new ones, eat food, have a drink and listen to an incredible speaker. Gerrit Bantjes is a brilliant communicator. He has been a paratrooper in the British Army and fitness coach to Cardiff Rugby Club, as well as being a loving husband and dad. But most importantly for this event, he brings not just compelling wisdom and stories – but also compassion and an understanding that whether we are young or old, single or married, fulfilled in life or desperate for change – we can gain practical help on our journey together.

Come along and hear his inspirational story. Tickets are free but book in advance so we can ensure there is enough curry and poppadoms!
