£25,000 Vision Fund Award to Corrwg Cwtch

The Pen y Cymoedd Wind Farm Community Fund CIC is pleased to announce that it has awarded a grant of £25,000.00 to Corrwg Cwtch Ltd., a new café business in Glyncorrwg Ponds Visitor Centre in the Afan valley – a vital local facility.

The grant will enable this new business to purchase essential equipment and start-up stock to get up and running and start to recruit staff. The Centre is well-used by local residents and visitors to the valley, and is one of the most popular UK mountain biking venues with riders coming from all over the UK and beyond – all in need of refreshment!

The independent, Aberdare-based Pen y Cymoedd Wind Farm Community Fund CIC is responsible for managing the £1.8 million a year fund set up by Swedish energy company Vattenfall, the operator of the wind farm.

Bethan Lewis, Director of Corrwg Cwtch said “I’m so excited to be launching my new business in my own community – the grant from Pen y Cymoedd Community Fund has made all this possible. I will be offering employment opportunities, and have loads of ideas and plans for the future. The coffee machine is on and I look forward to welcoming our customers!”
