Goetre Fawr is an electoral ward in the County of Monmouthshire, Wales, UK and consists of the villages and hamlets of Penperlleni (Goytre), Little Mill, Mamhilad, Nantyderry, Pencroesoped and the surrounding countryside.
Over the years the name of this area has had many spellings. The original Coed Tre was a hamlet near Ty Cooke farm which was wiped out by plague. The electoral area is named as Goetre Fawr, the village of Penperlleni is also known as Goytre where the name has been anglicized, and on very early maps it is named as Goytrey.
There is only one Penperlleni in Wales, but two villages called Goytre, the other one being near Port Talbot.

Where possible large font copies of the most recent documents are provided. Where this has not been possible you my find it useful to use Word Narrator. You can open this by using the command Ctrl/Windows button/Enter.
Once Narrator has been opened, move your cursor to the area of text you wish to read. Then press Caps Lock + R and Narrator will start reading the text on the page to you. You can stop Narrator from speaking by pressing the Ctrl key.
Alternatively you may wish to use the 'Speak' function (this can be addded to your toolbar if it is not currently shown). Unlike Narrator, Speak will only read out the actual text of the document. Simply highlight the text that you wish to read and click on the Speak icon. Click on the icon again to stop it.
You can also enlarge the text on any Word document by clicking on 'view', then web layout, and finally using the slider at the bottom right hand corner of the screen to enlarge the text until it is readable. The text will be automatically re-formatted to fit the page to avoid the need to scroll left and right.
