In its meeting on 23 January the Community Council agreed to award a grant of £498 to Radyr Golf Club, to help pay for some 'Tri-Golf' teaching equipment (such as nets, clubs and targets) to help ensure that younger children can have a taste of the sport - and hopefully become fully fledged players in future.
In addition, a grant of £1,000 was awarded to Radyr Cricket Club to help with the costs of indoor junior winter nets for their players aged between 8 and 14.
We also awarded a grant of £440 towards the costs of Bryn Deri and Radyr Primary Schools Orchestra and Choir.
Commenting on the grant awards, council Chair, Huw Onllwyn Jones, said:
'It is great that we can support these two, excellent clubs, as they seek to provide our young people with training to learn and improve golfing and cricketing skills.
I'm also very happy that we have been able to support the Bryn Deri and Radyr Primary Schools Orchestra and Choir.
Maybe the Ben Stokes' and Virginia Wades of the future will start their paths to glory thanks to their time with our fantastic cricket and golf clubs! Not forgetting, of course, the next Pavarotti...!
