A message from Philip Milner

A message from Philip Milner: “It is with sadness that we announce the passing of John Milner following a short illness. He was 97 and had enjoyed a wonderful and full life. He was fully lucid right up to the end. He will be buried with his wife Margret in Cilycwm, which is the place close to his heart.

Everyone is welcome to attend the funeral which will take place at Cilycwm church at 2pm on Thursday Jan 30th. Dress code is a matter for your own discretion. Traditional black is fine or you could wear something more colourful if you prefer.”

Croeso n’ol …………Welcome back………!!

After a few decades, the name New York again features as a cottage in Cilycwm.

A saying from the old residents of this community –

Cilycwm is only as BIG as from New York to Pennsylvania.

New York , a small cottage by Penstacan, last known resident in 1843 – William & Margaret Thomas (a miner) baptised his son David.

Pennsylvania, a cottage just below Ysgol Cilycwm, where a small stream joins the Gwenlais.  Last known resident was Rees Thomas who died at the age of 64 in 1830.

Congratulations to Neuadd Arms!

Congratulations to The Neauadd Fawr Arms in Cilycwm for coming 18th in the Walesoline – 50 best pubs in Wales.

“In the remote and beautiful surroundings of the upper Tywi valley you’ll find the little village of Cilycwm and the Neuadd Arms. After strolling along the river in nearby Rhandirmwyn, hunting for the cave of Twm Sion Cati or heading up to the enormous Llyn Brianne, it’s a perfect place to call for a pint. And if you’re hungry after all that fresh West Wales air, the Neuadd Arms serves up its own farm-raised Welsh lamb, free range eggs from a nearby farm and meat supplied by butcher from Llandovery, just down the road. ” Steffan Rhys, Walesonline
