The last remaining Miners’ Institute in the Rhondda Fach, Tylorstown Welfare Hall, is actively recruiting trustees and is keen to hear from any interested parties!
The Grade 2 listed building which dates back to 1933 is run by a group of trustees, who are now looking for additional individuals with professional experience to help sustain the charity, and to help develop a successful funding strategy to renovate the Hall.
The Hall is a well-known staple of social life in the Rhondda Fach, and attracts over 1,000 users a month to a bewildering array of activities, including drama and dance, family bingo, yoga, over 50s group, parents and toddlers groups, food co-operative, credit union, Police and youth offending services.
The licensed venue also hosts an IT suite and a coffee shop, and is regularly booked out for parties, weddings, christenings and funerals.
It recently featured as the venue for the Indian wedding in the hit TV series ‘Stella’, and also hosted Big Al’s Weigh-in Club on the same show.
Rebecca Sullivan, Tylorstown Welfare Hall Development Manager, said: “The Hall is a focal point in the community and local people depend on the services we provide.
“We are looking for new trustees who have expertise in this type of project who can offer us the relevant knowledge and support to take the project forward.”
Trustee meetings take place once a month, and potential trustees are needed to lead and take responsibility for projects and sub groups. Anyone interested is invited to contact Rebecca Sullivan on 01443 730534 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
