Dog Fouling in Y Felinheli!


Dog poo is being thrown in trees, bushes, left on footpaths and at the side of our roads.

The level of dog fouling has been on the rise during the pandemic. We are very lucky to have so many wonderful footpaths on our doorstep and there really is no excuse for this continued lack of care and thoughtfulness for the well-being of others.
Failing to clean up dog dirt is an offence and while most dog owners behave in a responsible manner, we are looking to take a zero tolerance approach to those who break the law. Dog dirt presents a risk to public health which can lead

to illness and even blindness.

We urge all dog owner to keep your dogs on a lead and PICK UP any dog's mess and dispose of it correctly. There are dog bins located all around the village. Please see the map for their location. It is not possible for us to have any more bins as we have more than many other villages in Gwynedd.

If a bin is full or damaged, please contacted the council and report this issue either through our website or complain directly to Gwynedd Council via their Website or App: App Store / Google Play

Panad a Chân


A message to the people of Felinheli from Eve Goodman

I am running online meet-ups with a musical theme for the elderly members of our community. It's completely free and no musical experience is needed. I'll be a friendly face to chat to and share tales with, and with your blessing I'll use our interactions as inspiration for folk songs. Please share with any older residents in the village who would benefit from a bit of inspiration and light heartedness in these trying times!

To register your intrest in an intitial online meet-up, leave your name and number with the village shop or send me an email:

Commissioned by Mid Wales Opera through Music at Your Place with the Support of the Arts Council of Wales.

Footpath Closed


Unfortunately - due to a danger to walkers, Afon Heulyn path has had to be closed by Cyngor Gwynedd. Looking forward to hearing that the problem has been resolved and the path made safe once again.

Y Felinheli Remembrance Day Service 2020




Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic, the Remembrance Day Service this year will be different from other years.
The Community Council needs to help to keep people safe and comply with regulations and restrictions whilst respecting the fallen and treating their families with sensitivity.

This year the Community Council will host an ONLINE COMMEMORATION of Remembrance Day instead of the usual event held at the Memorial Clock.
We know that many people will be disappointed, but sadly this is a decision we have had to take as the village acts to slow the spread of COVID-19.

A SHORT FILM of the Memorial Service is being created which will include the reading of the Names of the Fallen, playing of the Last Post and the national Two Minute Silence.
The program will air on Sunday 8th of November from 10.40 am - 11.15 am via: and Facebook Y Felinheli page

It will also be made available after this time on these platforms.

We hope that people across Y Felinheli will join us online so that we can still stand together as a community and remember.
We can pause for the two minutes silence in our homes or on our doorsteps.
People who wish to visit, lay their own tributes, and pay their respects in person, will be able to do so at any time of their choosing in the days leading up to Remembrance Sunday or on the day itself.

Because no formal event has been organized there will be no access restrictions.
We ask that you observe current Government and Public Health Wales guidelines around COVID-19 and that you respect the safety of yourselves and others around the cenotaph.
The road will not be closed this year, so we remind you to be aware of traffic.
We would also like to ask that you pass on this information on to anyone who regularly attends the Remembrance Service and does not have access to social media.
