Your chance to say a big "Thank You and Well Done!" to someone who is making a difference in our community

We know Llandrindod is brilliant, and so do you, but not everyone knows about all the things going on that make it so! The aim of Llandrindod Well Done is to

  • Celebrate and raise the profile of all the good stuff that is happening here
  • Let each other know about the wealth of talent and opportunity there is in our town
  • Learn about how different people and groups have been so successful at what they do in the community
  • Make new connections which could help us all be even more brilliant
  • And most of all, say an enormous Llandrindod Well Done! 

Nominations are now closed

Thank you so much to everyone who has sent us their nominations - we've had over 100! Check  our Facebook page for updates on the big event on May 6th where we'll be getting together to celebrate and thank all the nominees.

Feedback on the February course:

I loved it all!! It was a perfect mix of theroy and practical.

Excellent pacing by Chris - a lot of information but not overwhelming.

From sustaining Rock House to Rock House sustaining us.

When we moved here 21 years ago, Rock House was very needy. The external render was falling off, the wooden windows were so badly rotted that the curtains blew in the breeze, there was no damp proof course and only a hint of insulation in the roof.

Part of the house was heated by a Clearview wood burner, part had no heat and the kitchen was home to a Diva of a Rayburn who only performed by consuming the most expensive anthracite eggs money could buy.

Outside there was a large grassed area which cattle had churned up and a pocket of grass being desiccated by a leylandii of gargantuan proportions.
