Rhos Community Centre Toilet Improvements – Press Release

Council flushed with success

Councillors at Cilybebyll Community Council are celebrating the completion of improvements to the toilet facilities at Rhos Community Centre in the Swansea Valley.  At a recent meeting, the changes were declared an overwhelming success that would benefit all users of the Community Centre and adjoining Rhos Park.

In order to progress the work the Council successfully bid for £15,000 awarded through the Landfill Communities Fund of Waste Recycling Group (WRG), administered and distributed by Waste Recycling Environmental (WREN), and contributed over £7,000 from its own budget.

A number of groups who use the Centre supported the successful funding bid which allowed the Council to appoint Swansea contractors Edmunds Webster Ltd. to undertake most of the work, supported by its own staff and volunteers.

The building was previously improved by the addition of new changing rooms for the playing field in the Park, and this new investment is the latest phase of the Council’s ambitious programme to improve these vital facilities serving the communities of Cilybebyll and beyond.  The Council is also engaged in discussions to establish allotments nearby and exploring the possibility of upgrading the playground at the Park.

Chairperson of Cilybebyll Community Council, Councillor Nicola O’Sullivan said: “The Council recognised that it needed to improve the facilities some time ago and appreciates the support of WREN in assisting with the cost.  It will make the building more amenable for existing users and more attractive for those who may use it, and is part of our wider programme to provide modern facilities for local residents.  We are pleased with the outcome and encouraged to press on with further improvements when we can”.
