We're fundraising for the final £22,000 to finish our much needed hall extension in order to provide outside accessible toilets, a bigger hall with disabled toilets, baby and changing facilities, more meeting rooms and space for a coffee bar.
We’ll be able to extend the number of classes, and group meetings we can provide to our community and provide employment opportunities, and a hub for start-up businesses too.
And we're working in partnership with the Towy Valley Cycle path, creating a Hub and connecting the villages along the 16-mile route from Carmarthen to Llandeilo.
We built and opened our village hall 13 years ago, using a legacy which was left to the village in 1932. For several reasons (World War II, lack of resources, no land) the money was left in the Charities Commission fund ready for the right opportunity to come along. Whilst in the middle of negotiations, a field was donated by Mr. and Mrs. Evan Davies, Clifftonville for the sole purpose of building a village hall. The hall was built using the legacy and grant money from Welsh Government and European funds.
The current situation
The hall is the hub of our community and pre-lockdown was used daily for classes, groups, clinics, workshops and conferences. Every weekend was also full of parties, weddings and concerts. Our outdoor areas is well used daily - the children's play areas, green spaces, picnic areas and as a base to explore the beautiful Tywi Valley and has been an even more treasured space since the covid restrictions came into force. In order to better serve our community we need a bigger hall, and outside facilities. Planning has been granted for the extension which will house a disabled toilet and shower facilities. This makes the facilities accessible for all, children, babies and adults.
What we'll use your money for
We have already raised £95,000 and are £22,000 short of the final amount needed. The extension is up, roof is on and doors and windows in. The money we are raising will be used to finish the work, place sanitary ware within the building and get it open for our community to use. Please help us raise as much as possible. Each £1.00 raised will get us closer to finishing the extension and we would be very grateful for any donation given. Please support us to achieve our goal in order to provide more to our village and community.
Diolch yn fawr iawn i chi. Thank you very much.
