CANTREF’S Community Regeneration Team joined forces with the Prince’s Trust Team 152 to undertake a community project on their Gwelfor estate in Fishguard during last week’s school half-term holiday.
Rhiannon Ling, Cantref, organised a play session early September with Purple Routes play project having been approached by Town Councillor Pat Davies to improve play opportunities.
Following that consultation, Cantref staff, Prince’s Trust Team 152, Jamson contractors and the tenants, succeeded to build and paint fencing, erect a willow dome, create a bike ramp and a graffiti chalk-board. They also cleared rubbish and cut down hedging of a neighbouring overgrown green lane - a favourite play area - all in the space of three days!
A big thank you to Jamson, Jewson, Tesco, Out to Learn Willow in Ogmore on Sea and the Transition Café in Fishguard for their contributions.
Lynne Sacale, Cantref’s Chief Executive, said: “Cantref see the importance of creating safe, sustainable communities. This project allows our residents to take ownership and have pride in the play areas.”
