Bettws y Crwyn is a parish in a deeply rural area in South Shropshire, with a population under 200. Despite the scattered nature of the dwellings in the area, it is a vibrant community with good, if informal, communications, and an excellent record of co-operation. It is a caring community which is supportive of local events.
The pages on this site reflect the interests of the community, and act as a central information site.
It is a website that will grow as people feed information to the editor. If you have a business that you would like include in the ‘Services and Businesses’ pages or information you would like to share, please leave a response.
New posts will appear on the “Newsflashes and Coming events” page – click on this in the sidebar under the Home tab.
If organisers of events inform Valerie Whately as soon as an event has been arranged I will do my best to place it there as soon as possible.
Records of older announcements and events that have taken place are moved to the Archive pages.
Please remember that a web site is as good as the information received. If no information is received – it does not get updated, so please help by sending news and updated info.
