Project: The Yard
Rhondda-based Valleys Kids have taken over the now buzzing Play Yard facility in the former Burberry factory in Ynyswen. Sewing machines have been replaced by a children’s indoor play space, two state-of-the art 5 a-side pitches, a fitness studio and a café, all under one roof. Users can hire a pitch, book a party, take part in activity classes and clubs, use the fitness studio – or just drop in for coffee or lunch. A Vision Fund grant of £388,178 over the next four years will support improved facilities (including an amazing new play frame) and the employment of key staff to take the venture from strength to strength – supporting people of all ages to be active.
