Spittal VC SchoolSPITTAL
The village of Spittal is situated in the rural heartland of Pembrokeshire. The name of Spittal is derived from the word ‘hospitium’ and was a hospice or place of accommodation for pilgrims on their way to the Cathedral of St. David’s. It stands on the ‘Landsker Line’, an imaginary line drawn across the map of central Pembrokeshire separating the historical Welsh speaking area to the north from the English speaking south. You will hear Welsh spoken in Spittal but the predominant language is English.
Spittal has developed around the village green and has a mixture of old and new buildings and approximately 550 residents of all ages. There is a thriving primary school, a busy pub - The Pump on the Green - and a recently modernised Church Hall all of which contribute to a vibrant sense of community. St Mary’s Church can be found close to the heart of the village and Zion’s Hill URC Chapel and Salem Chapel are close by.
Spittal Community Forum is an active group who support a wide range of activities in the village. Over the years the village green has played host to sporting events, carnivals, barbecues, coffee mornings and fun days. We have enjoyed ‘welly’ throwing competitions, dung drops, donkey derbys as well as singing carols around the Christmas tree lights. There is a willingness to be involved and to include everyone.
