Supporting each other through Coronavirus

In order to help each other during the next few weeks or months, we are setting up a system in the village (specifically the square near the pub, Rhyd y Groes, and the vicinity) where people can offer and ask for help. Some of us may need to self-isolate and as a consequence may need help with groceries or medication, or just need to keep in touch. 

How We Can Help

Parchu Pentir Respect can help those who are self-isolating with obtaining groceries and prescriptions, or any other practical help. Contact us by email at

Local Services

We have compiled a list of local services that provide essentials, such as veg boxes or other groceries, for home delivery, or collection by volunteers. 


Our group of volunteers support people who are self-isolating, in a variety of ways. If you would like to volunteer for the support group please get in touch via

Latest News

Don’t Use E-mail?

No problem. If you don’t use email and anticipate that you may need help during the coming weeks, please get one of your neighbours to pass on your details to us. We will get in touch with you, and let you have a direct contact phone number. It may be an idea to exchange phone numbers with a neighbour now.

PPR Group Meetings

The Parchu Pentir Respect group is not meeting during the coronvirus outbreak.

You may wish to join the email mailing list to keep up to date with the latest information we have collated from local businesses large and small that offer their services.

Social Distancing

There are people in the village that are self-isolating. Although they will be at home for much of the time, they will be getting exercise and fresh air walking around the village. It is important to remember to keep at an appropriate distance (at least 2 metres is the recommended distance) when we meet and not be surprised if our normally very friendly neighbours do not  stop and chat as usual. We can chat by phone!

Not living in Pentir?

Although the service we are currently offering is focussed on supporting the residents of Pentir village, if you live further afield in the Bangor area, you may wish to contact the co-ordinators for volunteers and Coronavirus support in the Bangor and adjacent communities.


The co-ordinator for Rhiwlas is Menna Jones. She can be contacted on:  01248 351066
