The Team

Llanfair serves the community of Penrhys because of the commitment of more than twenty volunteers. Most of these live in Penrhys but others come from various parts of the Rhondda. Their commitment helps Llanfair to be part of the community. Llanfair is fortunate that it has four flats above the main part of the community projects.
