Community focal points
This is the pub and church in Lisvane, a "village" just north of Cardiff. I say village as it was many years ago, but it has now been engulfed by new developments.
Its very common to have a pub and a church near each other in a village, beacause both in their own way are centres for the community. Think of local weddings and funerals, a few beers before the ceremony and then some more after. Religious and social meeting points.
A big incident on our ride today, one guy came off as he was going downhill, and slid into a car coming up the hill. We had to call the ambulance, as it turns out he has a broken elbow and a badly sprained wrist. He is home safe and sound now, so alls well. I think this is only the second accident in about 15 years, so not a bad record for the club.
