Welcome to the official website of Lisvane Community.
Lisvane is a village to the north of Cardiff, which although having the status of a dormitory suburb, still retains the feel of a rural village being largely surrounded by countryside. There is a well defined village centre with an ancient church, a pub and a village shop. The community has a strong identity which manifests itself in the many groups and activities which contribute to village life. The website is a vehicle to provide information about what is happening within the Community Council and the wider Lisvane Community. We hope it will be a valuable resource to all residents of the village.
