St Anne’s Community Group Launch
On Sunday March 1st 2020, Play It Again Sport attended the community day at St Anne’s Church Hall, Ynyshir. This day was about celebrating the acquisition of the church hall for a year – to be used by the community, for the community. We were in great company to celebrate St David’s Day with Julie Edwards, the local councillor, Pendyrus Male Choir, Welsh Water, RCT Rocks, the Deputy Mayor Cllr Susan Morgans and Cllr Jack Harries also present.
Our original intention had been to provide games for those that were attending – particularly for any children, and to find out what type of activities we could possibly provide in the church hall in the future.
However, the size of the church hall, along with the numbers of people that attended (202!) meant that this could not happen; there were just too many people in the hall for us to deliver any sports.
We saw this as a great opportunity to engage with those that were attending and find out what the people of Ynyshir would like to see the church hall used for. We spoke directly with people from all demographics, from those still at school to those long since retired and everyone in between!
There were over a hundred suggestions, and many of them can be supported by Play It Again Sport.
We look forward to working with St Anne’s Community Group to help them establish a community centre with something for everyone.
