Council helps Christmas Tree Project

Below is a message from the Llangattock Village Society. We are delighted to be able to help.

fundraising during the pandemic has been difficult but we're now able to announce that in December we will have a village Christmas tree ๐ŸŽ„ at the Recreation Ground! We've raised enough to pay for the installation of a permanent, safe electricity feed and to pay for high quality LEDs. The only item left to fund is the tree itself. Thank you so much to all the individuals who've donated ๐ŸŽ„ and thanks to Llangattock Community Council๐ŸŽ„for their support. Not only have they given permission to site the tree in the park, they've helped with the cost of the project by awarding ยฃ500 from the Community wellbeing fund ๐ŸŽ„ Huge thanks also to As I See It Media Ltd for generously donating prize money to a 'Best Christmas Lights Street Scene' in Llangattock, Dardy, Ffawyddog, Hillside or Legar. Details closer to the time, but prizes will be 1st - ยฃ75, 2nd - ยฃ50 and 3rd - ยฃ25 As You See It Media Ltd will photograph the Christmas lights just before Christmas for an online Christmas gallery ๐ŸŽ„ There's still a little way to go but hopefully we'll be able to hold some events through the summer which will get us across the finishing line, and make Christmas 2021 one to remember for all the right reasons! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŒŸ

A friendly, vibrant, forward-thinking village in the South East corner of the county of Powys. We are surrounded by the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
