Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views -

MEM­BERS of a Brid­gend com­mu­nity group are cel­e­brat­ing af­ter re­ceiv­ing nearly £1,000 in fund­ing.

Cwm Ogwr Men’s Shed has been awarded £990 by from Royal Vol­un­tary Ser­vice and the Asda Foun­da­tion.

De­signed and run by their mem­bers, Sheds pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal peo­ple to share tools, re­sources and ex­per­tise and to make things, learn new skills and make friends. They also help re­duce lone­li­ness and iso­la­tion.

Ben North from Cwm Ogwr Men’s Shed said: “Since open­ing our door to the Og­more Val­ley in June, we’ve had a steady flow of shed­ders join our ranks, but we have been con­tin­u­ally frus­trated at the lack of re­sources we have to at­tract new mem­bers.

“Thanks to Royal Vol­un­tary Ser­vice and the Asda Foun­da­tion, we are able to fur­ther de­velop our ac­tiv­i­ties and open them up to more men from our Val­ley.”
