As you drive north towards Cardigan, you may recall spotting signs to Moylgrove and perhaps wonder what goes on in such a remote community…or maybe you have explored the stunning woodlands nearby or walked on the coast path. This beautiful part of north Pembrokeshire is well worth a visit and is home to a very lively community. Its reputation for events and activities is well-known across the county and the hall hosts a variety of regular and one-off functions.
Moylgrove School closed in 2003 . It was refurbished and re-opened as a community centre in 2013, with a grant of £156,000 from the National Lottery. The Hall has a programme of talks, concerts, dinners, and other events, together with several weekly and monthly activities. These are attended by people from Moylgrove and the surrounding towns and villages. The Hall is also hired for private functions and has an enthusiastic committee of volunteers, Cymdeithas Trewyddel. A cleaner is paid on a contract basis.
As well as some inital lottery funding to create the centre there have been subsequent successful bids to build a storeroom from Awards for All, a chance to further enhance the facilities with monies from Enhancing Pembrokeshire and the Noson Allan fund helps enable the busy committee to subsidise some entertainment too.
For the first time this year the Open Gardens is having an artistic theme and this takes place on 2nd June – well worth putting this in your calendar!
Moylgrove is certainly lucky to have such a vibrant centre!The committee is now part of the forum of local halls organized by Jo Hutchings of St Dogmaels Memorial Hall.
These all carry details of the events programme, as well as other news of the village.
I was extremely impressed by the online presence of Moylgrove and the village even has its own APP detailing the history of the village, with local people adding more details to the notes about their own houses as they find out more – as you walk round the village you can share in this local history on your phone!
We look forward to sharing more about Moylgrove as part of the Communities Online project!
