Most Covid restrictions have now ended, but heartbreakingly, many older people have lost their confidence in going out and are still stuck inside. We urgently need volunteers, in all areas of Powys, to support lonely and isolated older people to enjoy getting outside again after Covid-19. Thank you so much for your support.


Please see attached and below campaign from Gail Hamer, Chief Officer at Age Cymru Powys.

Gladestry Active Community Fund


The GACF was set up in November 2003 in order to administer the money still left in the Millennium Fund. A constitution was agreed, and the following objectives defined: - To stimulate and support activities, events and projects within the Gladestry Community Council area. - To aim to use the fund as a sort of seed capital for projects, whereby if a profit is made, some reimbursement is requested, but is not a requirement.

Gladestry Singalong Singers

To be announced

20-05-2022 at 5:53 PM



As part of our celebrations on Thursday 2 June, there will be a community singalong at the Jubilee Buffet. With the help of Gladestry Primary School children, we’ve chosen seven popular songs which we hope most people will know, one from each decade of the Queen’s reign. To get the party started in fine voice, we’re holding some practice sessions so that people can get to know the songs and have even more fun singing them on the day. The practice sessions are open to everyone - drop in to just one or come to all four! All are at Gladestry Village Hall.

Tuesday 24 May, 7-8.30pm
Sunday 29 May, 5-6.30pm
Monday 30 May, 7-8.30pm
Wednesday 1 June, 7-8.30pm

For more information, ring Kate Bull 01544 370637.




If so – please come and be part of the Gladestry Singalong Singers for the Gladestry Jubilee celebrations on Thursday 2 June! You don’t need to be a “good” singer, or read music; you just need to love a tune and be up for belting one out!

The idea for the Jubilee celebration is that a core group of singers will practice and then lead the community singalong of seven pop songs – one from each decade of the Queen’s reign. It’s not a performance, but if a few of us can start a song off I’m sure everyone else will join in.

We will have three or four practice sessions before 2 June.

If you’re interested, please call Kate Bull, Blue Field on 370637 or email
