Woodland Group

Click for more info
Llangattock Community Woodlands is a group of enthusiastic volunteers with a shared interest in trees and timber products. It is a registered charity that aims to promote for the benefit of the public the conservation, protection and improvement of small woodlands in the South East corner of the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park.
In the past few years we have taken on the management of several small woodlands in the Llangattock area on behalf of their owners. In partnership with Canal & River Trust much of our activity is concentrated on a couple of woodlands that border the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal and at Coed Cefn, Crickhowell,  a Woodland Trust woodland where in 2023 we commenced a programme of coppicing.

We have had a close relationship with Llangattock Green Valleys with whom we share an aim to promote sustainable energy. In particular, we process felled timber into woodfuel and charcoal which we sell in the local area.

Llangattock Green Valleys was created by a group of local residents who were drawn together by the shared need for positive action in the face of the climate emergency we are facing. Over a decade ago, we started to look at ways of creating a greener, more sustainable future for our community by harnessing natural local resources including water, wood fuel and solar power to help people save money and reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. We also delight in exploring ways of working together to create a richer way of life, from growing more food locally, to helping people learn new skills, creating rewarding local jobs and strengthening the bonds between community groups.

Our organisation was formally incorporated as a community interest company in May 2010, and since then, we have won the Wales and UK heats of British Gas’ Green Streets competition and have delivered a range of innovative energy-saving and renewable-energy projects in Llangattock and the surrounding area.

Repair Café

Click for more info
Repair cafés are pop up events held on regular dates where the local community can get their broken household items repaired for free by volunteers. The types of things that can be fixed include clothes, household electrics, technology, woodwork, children’s toys & bikes.

Waste Reduction
Repair cafés help household items have a longer life by fixing them rather than throwing them away. This reduces the volume of raw materials and energy needed to make new products. It cuts CO2 emissions by reusing instead of manufacturing new products.
Sharing Skills
By promoting a repair culture and inviting each one of our visitors to sit with a volunteer fixer, repair cafés show appreciation for the people who have practical knowledge and ensure these valuable skills are getting passed on.

Community Cohesion
Repair cafés promote social cohesion in the community by connecting local residents from very different backgrounds and with different motives with each other through an inspiring and low-key event.

The cafes run in the Llangattock Community Hall (by the Primary school) between 11am & 2pm, on the last Saturday in the month, (excluding January, May, August and December)

We will be running eight sessions in 2024, starting on Sat February 24th. Put the dates in your diary! For further information please follow our Facebook page.
