It is with great regret that we announce the death of Rhodri Morgan, the former First Minister of Wales. Rhodri was President of the Radyr & Morganstown Association since the beginning and was very supportive of all our activities. He will be sorely missed by the Association and, indeed, across Wales. He was a remarkable man. We have placed a short appreciation in the News Section.
A new fund for Youth Work in Radyr & Morganstown
Radyr and Morganstown Community Council has launched a new Youth Fund. The fund is offering grants of up to £1,000, during 2017/18, for organisations working with children and young people in Radyr and Morganstown. The Council hopes that organisations working with children and young people will find the fund of some assistance as they continue to develop their services and activities for children and young people. The fund is operated on a first come, first served basis, so early applications are encouraged.
Should you require any further guidance with regard to the new Youth Fund please contact the Council’s Clerk on 029 2084 2213 or email@example.com“.
