Grant aid boost for business
BUSINESSES are benefitting from a new £500,000 grant scheme.
Carmarthenshire Council’s business start-up and growth schemes offer up to £10,000 funding at 50 per cent of total project costs to help them buy equipment, machinery, marketing materials and to carry out minor works to their business premises.
Award-winning Ponthenri business Ickle Bubba, which manufactures and sells children’s prams and pushchairs, was one of the first recipients of the new scheme.
Director Veronica Vaughan said: “We recently expanded, which meant we needed new equipment and fixtures.”
