Robert Price paving the way for new community centre

Robert Price are delighted to have recently donated £1000 worth of materials to a community centre near Bridgend, assisting with their refurbishment project.

The centre was recently taken over by Bryncethin Rugby Club under the Council’s Community Asset Transfer scheme, which enables publicly owned land or buildings to be acquired by external groups, so that it can be better utilised by local people.

The rugby club is currently refurbishing the centre on behalf of the local community, extending the existing building and transforming it into a modern community centre, as well as constructing an outdoor seating area with the materials donated by Robert Price.

The building will have disabled access to all areas and its own dedicated car park close to the entrance.

Once refurbished, the centre will be used by a variety of local community groups, with multiple rooms available for hire.

We delivered paving slabs for the new outdoor seating area back in August, with local volunteers contributing their time to complete the work over the weeks that followed.

After months of hard work, the outdoor seating area is now complete and the “community couldn’t be happier” explains Bryncethin Rugby Club’s Funding Coordinator, Alun Griffiths.

“We couldn’t be happier with the results and are extremely grateful to Robert Price for their generosity and contribution to the centre, which will serve the community for many years to come,” said Alun.

“Without their donation, it would have taken us months to fundraise the money.

“We are looking forward to officially opening up the seating area for the whole community to enjoy.”

Molly Pike, Marketing Manager at Robert Price, said:

“Robert Price is delighted to have contributed to the Bryncethin Community Centre project.

“Our Bridgend branch is located just a stone’s throw away from the Bryncethin Community Centre, so we are thrilled to have participated in a project which will provide improved facilities to the local community.

“We wish everyone involved every success.”
