Sports and physical groups in Newtown and throughout north Powys are being urged to apply for grants available to help them develop.

Over £7,400 has been handed out to several sport organisations across the county, Powys County Council has announced.
The council’s Sports Development Team is urging more to take advantage of a grant worth up to £1,500 “to help contribute to creating thriving clubs which will continue to create opportunities through enterprise and innovation.”
The grants are designed to make a difference to sport and physical activity locally and are available through the Sportlot Community Chest, the Sports Council for Wales National Lottery funded grant aid scheme.
Cllr Rachel Powell, Cabinet Member for Sports Development, said: “I’m delighted that we have been able to award these grants to the seven clubs, which will help them thrive and make a difference to sport and physical activity in their area.
“With £90,000 available for this financial year, I’m urging organisations to submit applications so they don’t miss out on this grant funding.”
Recent projects that have been successful include:
Newtown Wanderers FC: £100 towards coach education
Welshpool Canoe Club: £1,500 towards equipment, coach education and facility hire
Welshpool Cricket Club: £1,250 towards coach equipment

The next deadline for applications is Thursday, 6 September.  For further information contact the council’s Sport Development Team on 01686 614060 or email
Application forms can be downloaded from the Sport Wales website
