Golygfa Gwydyr community centre open day in Llanrwst

LlanrwstImage via WikipediaA NEW community centre called Golygfa Gwydyr held an open day in its new premises in Plough Street, Llanrwst, recently.

Over 50 people went along to see what had been done in the building, previously the NFU offices. The building has been renovated for community use thanks to donations and grants.

The ribbon was cut by Maldwyn Davies, a regular at Golygfa Gwydyr’s job club and who volunteers on a regular basis.

Chair Rosie Evans thanked the community for their voluntary contributions to the building as well as the major funders and key partners.

Visitors were treated to bodhran drumming, displays of art produced by the community, locally produced hand stitched quilts as well as a range of home baked cakes, bread and jam.

One resident produced a homemade cake replica of the building itself, while others made bunting and many new friends came forward offering assistance in the future.

Golygfa Gwydyr also held its annual meeting and outlined its plans for the future. Four new directors came forward, increasing capacity to manage more local projects and service provisions.

The job club has moved from the Mind office to the new premises.
