The Myddfai Ty Talcen Ltd – Myddfai Community Hall & Visitor Centrewww.myddfai.org
When considering how they might replace a dilapidated community hall, the community in Myddfai in the Brecon Beacons realised that unless they addressed the long term challenge of its sustainability within the community, a new hall would struggle to survive.
They realised that without regular visitors and income any new building could end up in the same position as the old one, so the community needed a game changer. They needed something that would help provide economic regeneration and community opportunities into the future. A modest proposal for a new hall wouldn’t work and would struggle to attract funding so they went for something much more audacious. The result was the development of the Myddfai Brand the creation of two legally and operationally independent Social Enterprises and the building of a new Centre for the village with a funding award from the Big Lottery Village SOS Programme and a host of other funders.
