Welcome to Carreghofa Community Council's Website!

The village of Llanymynech straddles the border between Wales and England: Carreghofa Community Council serves the residents on the Welsh side while those in England are covered by Llanymynech and Pant Parish Council. Although divided in administrative terms, Llanymynech is united by a strong sense of community and won the Montgomery Village Award in 2018.

Carreghofa community comprises around 300 households and has a population of 667 (2011 census). Its boundary - outlined on the map below - encompasses the western half of the village, a section of the Montgomery canal and a dramatic rural landscape stretching from the river Vyrnwy to the summit of Llanymynech Hill. The area is rich in industrial heritage, natural history, enterprise and culture: there is much here to explore and enjoy! 

Our website aims to highlight the many facets of Llanymynech life, present and past, as well as reporting on the activities of Carreghofa Community Council. Your ideas are welcome: tell us what you'd like to see!

Elections for Community and County Councils Thursday 5 May 2022



March 2022
Voters at a polling station

Elections will be held across Powys on 5 May 2022 to elect your local Community or Town Councillors and your representative on Powys County Council. The polling station for residents of Carreghofa community will be Carreghofa Primary School, open 7.00am to 10.00pm.

It is important to vote at local government elections because County Councils and Community Councils are responsible for providing your local services and facilities.

These Community and County Council elections will be the first opportunity for newly enfranchised electors, 16-17 year olds and eligible foreign nationals to vote in local elections following the Senedd elections in May 2021. It's never too late to become a first time voter!

And remember that if you can't attend a polling station in person, you can vote by post or nominate someone to vote on your behalf - a 'proxy'.

Find out more from Powys County Council's website.

New picnic tables at Walls Bridge playground



March 2022
Picnic tables and playground swings

Carreghofa Community Council has installed two new picnic tables at Walls Bridge playground, ready for the coming of spring! 

The generously-sized tables with bench seating are made from durable recycled plastic. One has a space allowing easy access for a buggy, wheelchair or mobility scooter. Next time you're passing, why not take a look? Better still, invite your friends or family to join you for a picnic!

The Council is grateful to Councillor Michael Connell and County Councillor Arwel Jones for assembling and installing the benches: a job well done. 

The Community Council welcomes ideas for improvements to the playground or any other part of the village. Contact us if you have any suggestions.
