Pentredŵr and District Community Association is a charity and the facility at Pentredŵr is dedicated to providing a place for the community to meet and hold events. Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund / Cronfa Gymunedol, major building work at Pentredŵr Community Centre has recently been completed.
Access to the building has been greatly improved (including disabled access); structures made safe and drainage work completed. This will enhance the current facility and hopefully attract increased usage. Huge thanks from the local community to a small dedicated group of people for pushing the project forward during difficult times.
Pentredŵr Community Association and Gwlangollen CIC have also received funding from the National Lottery Community Fund for a new Rural Futures project. The project will be delivered jointly by Pentredŵr Community Centre and Glwangollen to create Hwb Pentredŵr as a rural skills centre. Sheep production is central to farming in the valley therefore promoting wool and exploring the wider uses of locally produced fleece is a key element of the work Hwb Pentredŵr will be doing.
The aim of the project is to secure a more prosperous future for local people and strengthen the community by reducing the impact of rural and digital isolation. The project will work towards securing community prosperity by developing rural skills and enterprise; addressing rural isolation; supporting digital inclusion and access to services thereby strengthening the community.
We hope that this will be of benefit to the Parish of Llantysilio residents and Community Centre users alike as it will hopefully mean that we will have access to a new WiFi system; access to a community transport system from Corwen through Pentredŵr to Llangollen, and a wide range of regular heritage craft skills for every-one to enjoy.
Next month Hwb Pentredŵr will be advertising a two-year, part time project co-ordinator post, so if you or your friends are interested in applying for the post please click here for the position details. These will also contain a full calendar of events, which will include workshops and events and also details of how to book the centre for group or private hire when current restrictions allow this.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who buys a lottery ticket. Without you, none of this would be happening!
