Cowbridge Community War Quilt

To support the Cowbridge 2014 – 2018 WW1 commemorations, a group of sewing enthusiasts are planning to make a large quilt to remember all those from Cowbridge, Llanblethian and Aberthin who have died in conflict from 1914 to the present day. The completed quilt will be displayed in Cowbridge on Remembrance Day 2018.

Duck Race 2017

A very successful day and just for a change we had water in the stream!

The Ducks were in 'top form' with some completing the dangerous course through the rapids on Nant Aberthin in a record 4 minutes and 15 seconds!

Check out the photos on the Gallery page

 Annual Duck Race -10.30am - Sunday 2nd April 2017  

Come along, sponsor a duck and join in the fun as 500 highly trained Yellow Ducks race down Nant Aberthin - you never know, YOURS could be the winner. Just £1.00 per duck - from your committee member or pay on the day - if there are any left!

All money raised at the event will go towards maintaining the Village Hall.

Pantomime - Aberthin Young Players

The first weekend in March saw the world premiere at the Hall of Snowflakes ‘R’ Us, a wonderful fairy-tale written and directed by Glesni Jones and performed by the newly formed Aberthin Young Players,a group of talented youngsters from the village ranging in age from 6 to 14 years.

Performances on Friday night and Saturday afternoon sold out and the delighted audiences witnessed a wonderful fairy-tale pantomime complete with elves, fairies, baddy kings and wicked witches, a hapless Dame and a more hapless group of incompetent village bobbies.

A full report and photographs of this great event are available on the Gallery page, or just click here...
