The Bangor on Dee Village hall has a coffee morning on the First Saturday of each month. Each coffee morning is arranged by a different oganisation from around the community of Bangor on Dee to raise awareness and money.

If you fancy a hot drink and cake and a chat, pop in to the village hall on Overton Road sometime between 10 and noon on the first Saturday of the month.

On Saturday 4th August 2018, after a break of several years, the Sportsfield Committee ressurrected the Bangor on Dee Sportsfield Big Day Out. Organisations from around the village gathered together to celebrate village life, promote themselves and raise moeny. Many groups got involved and there was a real spirit of community involvement - even the weather cooperated. The day was rounded off with karaoki at the Buck House.

Basket Shop News

We have recently added details of our new fabric range for cushions and covers and there are still basketmaking demonstrations and classes every Wednesday from 10-12 (£20 per head pre-booking advised).

Are you looking for something unusual or made to measure? Our bespoke baskets are still sought after but they do come at a premium price. However, we believe that for the service we offer our customers they are well worth the investment and helps the buy British campaign.

Our Faux rattan lines have been selling like hot cakes during the hot weather and with fabulous prices to match, are a great buy.

The rattan/cane furniture this year has been targeted towards the home rather than just conservatory use, this has meant that checks and more contemporary patterns have proven popular too.

Recommendations have still been high and we are grateful to our customers positive feedback.

We look forward to seeing you in the near future.

And finally, Fabulous news for Wales & Cycling in general. Congratulations to Mr Geraint Thomas on winning the Tour de France Cycle Race complete wearing the Yellow Jersey July 2018.
We aim to continue the celebrations by add a cycling theme to our showroom and making our cafe cyclist friendly, who knows, visitors may get to see a spot of Be-'Spoke' weaving!

If you have any new or re-Cycled quips to add to the cycling theme, drop us an email

J Johnson.
