Launch cel­e­bra­tion for new com­mu­nity sports group

Llanelli Star - - NEWS -

THE Llan­gen­nech and Bryn Sports As­so­ci­a­tion (LBSA) will hold a launch event at Llan­gen­nech Rugby Club on Satur­day.

The event will in­clude an in­tro­duc­tion to the or­gan­i­sa­tion as well as live mu­sic from South Wales­based band “Dou­ble or Noth­ing” and a raf­fle.

The Llan­gen­nech and Bryn Sports As­so­ci­a­tion (LBSA) is a char­i­ta­ble or­gan­i­sa­tion with an in­ter­est in ex­plor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties in de­vel­op­ing grass roots sport and well-be­ing fa­cil­i­ties for com­mu­nity use.

The aim of the LBSA is to bring peo­ple to­gether and im­prove re­la­tions among dif­fer­ent sports, ed­u­ca­tion and so­cial or­gan­i­sa­tions within the Llan­gen­nech and Bryn com­mu­nity; pro­mot­ing par­tic­i­pa­tion in recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties, mu­tual sup­port and joint aid among their mem­bers.

The group has di­verse mem­ber­ship from con­trib­u­tors across the com­mu­nity. They will serve to seek po­ten­tial op­por­tu­ni­ties to im­prove the fa­cil­i­ties of the un­der-utilised spa­ces avail­able to the com­mu­nity.

Projects in­clude two ar­eas of land within the bound­aries of the recre­ation ground, plus redi­rect­ing a foot­path in or­der to make more use of the grounds at Bryn­hyfryd Park as a play­ing field for chil­dren. These will be funded through both com­mu­nity fundrais­ing events and via ap­pli­ca­tions for avail­able grants. The projects are also aimed at help­ing to en­cour­age par­tic­i­pa­tion in sport and health and well­be­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

LBSA chair­man Phil Wil­lock said: “Since our for­ma­tion in 2018 we have been hard at work putting things in place to es­tab­lish our­selves as a com­mu­nity in­ter­est group with the cred­i­bil­ity to be the driv­ing force be­hind ex­plor­ing new de­vel­op­ments within the Llan­gen­nech and Bryn area to ben­e­fit the en­tire com­mu­nity. We have looked into four projects that have al­ready been sur­veyed.

“The launch event is an op­por­tu­nity to in­tro­duce our­selves to the pub­lic and also to be­gin to build a net­work of sup­port in or­der to help fundraise and show the rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties that these projects are ap­peal­ing to the whole com­mu­nity.”
