Joining in with local conversations opens the door to hidden opportunity and potential. You are able to discover what works well or needs improving from the community itself. Holyheads close-knit community enables people to get involved in making a difference to their wellbeing and surroundings from a grass route level; putting people first.
The hands-on approach of Mon CF and from local peple in getting involved in activities, fundays and fundraising provides a sense of wellbeing and gives onlookers a snapshot into the friendly-natured town that we are!
We'd love to have you involved with Holyhead's Local Conversation. Call 01407 762004 and speak to Dan Millington to get involved in making a difference.
Mon CF awarded 5 community groups in Holyhead a total of £5,000 thanks to funding from its Local Conversation Project. The successful organisations and groups submitted applications for funding of up to £1,000 towards activities and development.
When Mon CF’s Community Chest Fund was launched this year, there was overwhelming support from the community. Local Holyhead groups and organisations quickly submitted applications to the fund outlining their proposals and stories.
A flurry of activity and excitement amongst committee members soon occurred as a huge number of applications were received. The committee consists of community representatives; funding for the community decided by the community.
Unfortunately not every bid was successful, however there was strong support for all and there was a definite sense of need amongst the community for funding.
The successful applicants were: Plas Road Allotment Association, Kid’z’Ink, Parents and Friends of Clwb Cybi, Gwelfor Majorettes and Holyhead Autumn Activities Club. A great sense of community spirit and positive wellbeing was the driving force behind the organisations applications. An event was held at The Pod to award the community groups and organisations their cheques – see image above–
We'll be following their journeys and telling their stories of how the fund benefitted them. Applications will open shortly for the next round of Mon CF's Communty Chest Fund. Follow us on Facebook Twitter and Instagram for further details, or contact Dan Millington - Local Conversations Oficer: 01407 762004.
Fancy being part of a team that helps to maintain the award winning Sunken Garden on Newry Beach? It is the perfect opportunity to make new friends and socialise whilst improving local green spaces. There will be a 3 hour session once a week (day dependent on the weather).
