After helping out with the succesful Jiwbili last year, Llanfyllin Society is picking up the thread of organising the annual St Myllin’s Days.
The event has been set up to celebrate Llanfyllin and its people. St Myllin, the saint after which Llanfyllin was named, is honoured on 17th June, but this year the celebrations will take place on the nearest Saturday and Sunday: 15 & 16 June.
On Saturday there will be a free brunch on the town square. Anyone who is around can join in; have a sit down with a bite to eat and a drink. To make everyone aware of the wide variety of activities and services that are on offer in our vibrant community local organisations will present themselves to the general public, add to the festivities with kids entertainment and provide insight into local history. For a lucky few there will also be tours up the church tower.
On Sunday we are hoping to organise a special church service and a trip to the well above Llanfyllin. Which is where in the 7th century saint Myllin, as the first in Wales, baptised people by total immersion.
The celebrations are being organised by Llanfyllin Society with help (so far) from Arts Connection, Something Tasty, St Myllin’s Church and the Cain Valley Hotel. Llanfyllin Town council kindly awarded a small budget. Any local activities, organisations or services that would like to present themselves to the public with a stall or activity on the Saturday are asked to contact the organisers, Marinke, Siân and Hermione via firstname.lastname@example.org
