TCA Celebrates Award of £126,563!

Treuddyn Community Association LogoTreuddyn Community Association has been awarded a large grant by ‘The Community Facilities and Activities Programme’ operated by the Welsh Assembly Government. CFAP is a capital grant scheme that receives many applications and is highly competitive with a growing number of enquiries and applications. It is open to community and voluntary organisations and provides funding for the provision of facilities within communities, and for activities which engage local people and help promote the regeneration of communities.

TCA will use the grant to build an extension to the village hall for storage and a smaller meeting room, to refurbish the floor and to insulate the ceiling. There will also be money to put ball-park fencing around the hard play area which will protect the newly refurbished village hall from footballs!

Applying for grants like this one seems to be very worthwhile but meeting the requirement of funding bodies is both laborious and time consuming – they do not give away their money easily. TCA was the only scheme in Flintshire to complete a successful application. Jenny Smith Chair of TCA commented that when the completed form with all the necessary documentation and supporting evidence were sent in, the parcel weighed more than 3lbs!

TCA are working hard at the moment to ensure successful result for our planning application for the extension. Nick Woolley Black Mountain resident and Chartered Building Surveyor has kindly offered his skills to draw up the plans for us. The contracts for the building work will be put out to tender and firms wishing to tender should send an e-mail to Jenny@smithsmj.net
