Nantymoel Boys & Girls Club and Community Centre

Back in June 2013, the Berwyn Centre in Nantymoel was demolished as it was unsafe. Bridgend Council pledged an allocation of 200k from its capital programme towards providing alternative community facilities in Nantymoel. Local stakeholders worked together to appoint qualified persons to deliver detailed surveys, drawings and costings in support of a future refurbishment of the Nantymoel Boys and Girls Club building as an alternative centre. With the support of the Wales Co-operative Centre, the Nantymoel Boys and Girls Club have joined with the Friends of the Berwyn Centre to form a new CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) The Nantymoel Boys and Girls Club and Community Centre and supported them with their new business plan.

The new CIO is looking to develop the Nantymoel Boys and Girls Club which is only a short distance away from where the Berwyn Centre was located, into a community centre that will provide services and activities for the whole community while continuing to provide the much needed activities of the Boys and Girls Club in this deprived area. A realistic phased approach is being taken enabling works to take place as and when funding allows. This approach will also allow time to build momentum within the local community and the capacity within the group.
