Community Centre

Please note that the hall is closed due to the Covid pandemic.

The field, tennis court and car park are open for use as normal (except please observe the Covid rules!!)

Help us please!

The Community Centre needs some people to help us with the running of the centre. There are several ways you can help so please use our “Contact us” page to tell us and we will be in touch. Many thanks, on behalf of the village.

 

Directions to Centre

  • From Knighton take the the B4355 about 2 miles towards Newtown, and turn left into the village
  • From Newtown and about 6 miles after Beguildy turn right into the village (there is a second turn if you miss the first as many people do – see directions from Knighton above). Keep to your left over the stream bridge and just after the pub turn right into Glyndwr then follow signs for the Community Centre, recycling, and railway station.
