Welcome to Llanspyddid
Welcome to the Llanspyddid Community Website. Our village is situated approximately 2 miles west of Brecon just of the A40 on the way to Sennybridge. The village consists of about 100 houses, the marvellous and historic St. Cattwg’s Church and cemetery, a community field dedicated by the Church, and community playground central to the village. St. Cattwg's is an active church with regular church services and community events, and the cemetery is often visited by people exploring their family roots.
There has been a longstanding sense of community among the residents of Llanspyddid. As an example, the dedication of the Church Field by the Vicar in 2009 was the result of a lot of hard work and time that was put in by many villagers and friends from outside the village. Consequently, we now have a green area next to the church where we can use for various community events, or just use it for relaxing with the family. In September 2010, the village took the steps to make the most of everyone’s enthusiasm and form a village support group called the ‘Friends of Llanspyddid’ which has a constitution and an aim to help improve the quality of life in the village. The Friends of Llanspyddid hold regular events throughout the year, as well as the monthly coffee mornings. We typically have a summer fete and sports day, bonfire night fireworks, and a Christmas tree lighting event among others. Our most recent community project has been to regenerate and upgrade our village playground, which with the help of our community, National Park Wardens and The Beacons Trust, has progressed well, making the playground a very family-centred asset for our village. But we still have plenty of work to do!
Our main means of communication is via this website, plus we have regular newsletters which are delivered to every household. Notices are also posted on the village notice board. We hold regular meetings, with our AGM being held on the third Sunday in September every year. Thank you for taking an interest in our village website. Stop in for a cup of tea when you’re in the neighbourhood!
