£100 k NATIONAL Lottery success for Brynberian Past, Present and Future PROJECT!
The Community of Brynberian was delighted to hear this week that it has been awarded £100k from National Lottery Community Fund for its Brynberian Past, Present and Future project. Centred on the recently refurbished Community Centre, the project is designed to grow an already vibrant rural community.
Sandra Llewellyn, the Chair of Trustees at the Brynberian Community Centre said; “We are absolutely thrilled to receive this National Lottery grant. The funds will enable us to provide a resource for the wellbeing of our whole community to take part in activities, celebrate and grow our cultural and natural history, and create social networks in our beautiful, rural, bilingual village”.
Community volunteers have worked tirelessly over the last three years to secure over £200,000 in infrastructure grants from the Rural Community Development Fund, National Parks, Gannet Foundation and Hanfod to ensure the community Centre is refurbished using a range of sustainable technologies. The National lottery grant will now enable the work of the community to continue to the next level. It is anticipated that a Welsh speaking Co-ordinator will be appointed in the next few months to take the project forward. A formal launch will take place in the spring of 2020.
Sandra went on to say; “we cannot thank the players of the National Lottery enough. It is their generosity, which has enabled the award of this grant.
