Launch celebration for new community sports group
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.”
