The Talwrn Good Turn Scheme have been making a big impact in their community. Comprised of volunteers from the community shop and the village hall they have been successful in gaining grant funding over the year. As a result there have been a number of improvements and additions to facilities.
A village newsletter ‘Calon Talwrn’ has been produced and distributed with a new edition due out soon.
Their future plans include new play equipment, extra seating benches and picnic tables have been sourced and will be erected when weather and covid restrictions permit. A new permanent outdoor concrete table tennis table will be erected in the playing field. New outdoor covered area to allow meetings and gatherings outside and give shelter during those rare periods of rain on Anglesey.
The community shop run by volunteers, Siop Bodeilio, stayed open 7 days a week all through the pandemic, and has taken record sales including new frozen goods, fresh local cheese, bread and ice cream, and introduced door to door deliveries for those shielding, which has proved very successful.
All volunteers are an integral part of the GTS and what has been done.
Talwrn Good Turn Scheme have 18 Volunteers who have done 288 Good Turns during lockdown and are supporting 22 individuals. The GTS have had new volunteers come forward to replace those shielding which has enabled them to expand and further develop their services. Volunteers have been supporting local residents with shopping and medication collection.
Thank you all for your support during these very difficult times.
