Charity Christmas light switch on at Cefn’s Cae Pentice

Every Christmas Haydn and Marilyn Davies transform their home at 1 Cae Pentice in Cefn with a spectacular Christmas light display for charity.

The family will be switching on their Christmas lights this Sunday 3rd December at 6.00pm when Santa will be making a special visit, carols will be sung and there will be a glass of mulled wine for mum and dad and cookies and sweets for the children.

This year all the funds collected will be donated to Marie Curie, the UK’s leading charity for end of life care. 


Help needed to make sure everyone in our local community receives a Christmas lunch

Volunteers based out of Talbot Community Centre in Kenfig Hill will once again be cooking and providing Christmas dinner for local and vulnerable residents who would otherwise miss out on Christmas Day.

This will be the second time this initiative has taken place, after last year’s efforts helped to provide families and individuals in the Pyle, Cornelly, Kenfig Hill and Cefn Cribwr areas with a traditional Christmas dinner with all the frills.

For 2023, the service will be expanded to cover the entire county borough, and will be seeking to support as many people as possible via a small army of fellow volunteers and community representatives.

Preparation of the lunches will take place on Saturday 23rd December and delivery of the lunches to peoples homes will be made on Christmas Eve, Sunday 24th December. The meals will be ready to eat and will just need warming up on Christmas Day and are collected or delivered to housebound people or people who cannot get to the Talbot.

The Chair of the Talbot Community Centre, cook and organiser of the initiative, Cllr Jane Gebbie said: “With the valuable support of local businesses in place, we hope that this year will be even more successful, and will help vulnerable people to enjoy a merry Christmas. If anyone would like to help spread some much-needed Christmas cheer and support these efforts with donations of food and produce, it would all be gratefully received and put to very good use.”
