Welcome to Wenvoe

Wenvoe (Welsh: Gwenfô) is a Welsh village in the Vale of Glamorgan located on the western side of a shallow valley between Cardiff and Barry, surrounded by woods and farmland.

The Community of Wenvoe encompasses the communities of Dyffryn, St Lythans, Twyn-yr-Odyn and Brooklands Terrace/Parc y Gwenfô. The Community consists of around 800 properties, 500 being located in the village.

Wenvoe is a popular commuter village conveniently situated for the City of Cardiff but set in the countryside only a few miles from the sea and with easy access to the M4 motorway a few miles away. 

The village developed around the parish church, which can be traced back to the 12th Century with the adjacent locality now being a conservation area. The village has a well-stocked store with a post office, a church, primary school, a public house and travel lodge, a part time library and three halls. There is also a public house in the adjoining hamlet of Twyn-yr-Odyn, and another church at St Lythans. 

Wenvoe has a very healthy community spirit which supports many local community groups with activities to meet everybody's needs. Amongst these are Wenvoe Scout Group, Youth Club, the Village Quaffers, Ladies Choir, Rotary, W.I., Whist Drives, the Church and many social events. It also boasts its own monthly newspaper titled the 'Wenvoe What's On'.

WHY NOT LEND A HAND

The Scout Post requires adult support to carry out the majority of work involved. Each evening of the sorting week we need people to help sort cards into the different areas. Our sorting office is set up in the Community Centre leisure room. We also require a car driver to go to Llandaff each evening to exchange the sorted mail with the other participating scout groups and collect the mail for the Wenvoe

area. By the end of the week with all the local mail sorted into roads we require deliverers. We are responsible for mail in Wenvoe , Brooklands area, Twyn-yr-Odyn, St Lythans, Dyffryn and The Downs. It is at this stage the whole family can lend a hand.

We will be sorting at the Community Centre at the following dates and times

Saturday 6th Dec. @ 7.00pm

Sunday 7th Dec @ 2.30pm

Monday 8th Dec @ 7.00pm

Tuesday 9th Dec @ 7.00pm

Wednesday 10th Dec. @ 7.45pm

Mail exchange starts on Saturday 6th December and continues until Wednesday 10th December. Delivery of the mail starts on Saturday 13th December.

If you would like to lend a hand with any of the activities involved please contact Ian Moody 20594573 or e-mail at ian.moody@lineone.net or Jane Fenton-May 20593221 or any section leader. Those who have assisted in the past have found it an enjoyable experience.
