Remembrance Sunday 2019

St Athan Community Together  Remembrance Service  Sunday 8th November 2020

It is with much regret that due to COVID 19 social distancing rules, this year’s Remembrance Service will not go ahead as it has in previous years.

Attendee numbers are restricted and only those who have been invited should attend.

However, families are encouraged to show their support and solidarity in memory of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice by standing in front of their homes at 11am on Sunday 8th November 2020

Let us remember them

Senior Citizens Christmas Party 2020 – Cancelled

Unfortunately, the Community Council will not be able to host the senior citizens Christmas party this year – due to the COVID-19 restrictions and of course the need to protect our local residents from any risk.

The Christmas party has been a feature in our village for a number of years, is always a lovely social event with excellent entertainment from the school choir.

It was therefore very disappointing to have to cancel the event for this year.
