Treowen Community Hall is to receive £93,360 of funding from the National Lottery towards a new multi-games area.

The group is among several local community organisations to receive money from the National Lottery Community Fund.

More than £142,300 has been allocated to groups in Montgomeryshire.

They include:

Treowen Community Hall awarded a £99,360 grant to replace a redundant tennis court with a multi-use games area allowing children and young people to access a safe and accessible play facility.

"The project will reduce isolation and antisocial behaviour by increasing opportunities for socialisation and provide further opportunities for younger people," according to the application.

Newtown-based Mid Wales Housing Association has received a grant of £5,635 to work with residents to transform and improve an unused area of land, which is presently connected with anti-social behaviour, through a community gardening project with the aim of improving their well-being.
Clatter Community Centre Limited will use their £9,960 grant to make essential improvements to the centre’s facilities, to ensure that the building meets users needs, which were identified during consultations with the local community.
Montgomery Town Council will use the grant to increase accessibility to the upper floors of the Town Hall, for residents with mobility restrictions. This grant for £10,000 will fund the supply and installation of a wheelchair lift.

Responding to the announcement, Mr George said: "I would like to congratulate all of the local groups who have secured National Lottery funding for their projects.

"In particular, I would like to welcome the significant £93,360 grant for Treowen Community Hall which will mean that a new multi-games area can replace the redundant tennis court. This will allow children and young people to access a safe and accessible play facility.

"I'm very much looking forward to visiting the different projects to see how this invaluable National Lottery funding is invested for the benefit of the people of Montgomeryshire and I congratulate the dedicated local people who applied and were successful in securing this investment for their communities."
