Welsh Business News – WCVA Grants

The Landfill Disposals Tax (LDT) Communities Scheme is now open following the latest round of funding from the Welsh Government. The closing date for bids is 13 January 2020.

The scheme, which is managed by the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA), has already supported more than 44 local community and environmental projects with a total of £1.7 million committed in grant funding since it was launched last year.

One of the projects that is benefitting from the fund is Cardiff University’s Community Gateway project – Grange Pavilion. Working closely with local residents, primary schools and under-graduate architecture students at Cardiff University, the project is transforming a neglected bowls pavilion and green into a new social community hub. The new hub will offer multiple spaces for community use, a community-focused café and garden for wellbeing, play, education, growing and biodiversity.

The LDTCS funding will contribute to enhancing the biodiversity value of the area as part of this larger programme of works.

Celebrating the success of the scheme, Finance Minister, Rebecca Evans said:

Money raised through the Landfill Disposals Tax is supporting such fantastic community driven projects, such as the Grange Pavilion. This project is an excellent example of what the scheme is all about – nurturing a resilient, welcoming and united community while benefitting the environment.

Speaking about the project, WCVA’s Grant Funds Manager, Catherine Miller said:

The Grange Pavilion project is a great example of taking a rundown community space and transforming it into an urban greenspace for the use of all generations of the local community. The community is fully engaged with the development and implementation of the project and the result will be a valued public space with increased biodiversity.

Project Lead for Community Gateway, Mhairi McVicar added:

The redevelopment of the Grange Pavilion is the result of seven years of huge efforts from so many Grangetown community members, and it’s been an absolute privilege to be able to support their vision through a partnership with Cardiff University.

The ongoing community leadership of this facility will be supported by Cardiff University, Cardiff and Vale College, Taff Housing, RSPB Cymru and Cardiff Bay Rotary Club, and we are all absolutely delighted that Welsh Government has been able to support the project through the LDTCS scheme.

Swansea Wine Merchant Makes UK Shortlist – Business News Wales

Cheers Wine Merchants, the independent, family-run business with shops in West Cross and Mumbles, has made the finals of a UK-wide shortlist for the drinks industry.

The Drinks Retail Awards are a prestigious event that is recognised for having one of the most rigorous and thorough judging processes of all the industry awards, and the second generation company is delighted with the news.

“We are over the moon,” said director Dafydd Morris, son of founder Andrew Morris, “and to make it to the finals in the category of Independent Drinks Retailer of the Year was a pleasant surprise.”
Recognised as a symbol of excellence in the trade, the announcement comes after an intensive visit from on the road judge Nigel Huddlestone, who met with several key members of staff and probed many aspects of the company.

“Neil was here for a few hours,” continued Dafydd,  “and he looked at all aspects of our business from the brands and products we stock, to our customer engagement and the overall standard of our retailing.”
While being shortlisted is an achievement in itself, the Swansea wine-merchant is also the only Welsh firm to make the finals and will be flying the flag proudly at a glittering event due to take place in the Dorchester Hotel in London next February.
