New shelters for the Recreation Ground

If you have been down to the Recreation Ground over the past few days, you will have seen a lot of activity. We have been constructing Covid shelters or covered seating areas for people to sit in and enjoy the park. We got funding for these from a special National Lottery Covid Response fund. The finished shelters will have felt shingles on the roof and low height wall panels, so that people can enjoy the outdoors while having a bit of protection, too. As you can see from the aerial photos, there's still plenty of room on the old tarmac area for other things. And we hope in future we will be able to use these for events as well. Thank you to the many local people who volunteered, those who offered help (we couldn't have too many people on site), and the people who brought biscuits and delicious Welsh cakes. We hope to finish the shelters next weekend.

A friendly, vibrant, forward-thinking village in the South East corner of the county of Powys. We are surrounded by the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
