Tumble RFC awarded ‘Be Active Wales’ funding for new Floodlights at Parc y Mynydd Mawr

We’re pleased to announce that Tumble RFC has received a share of funding aimed at supporting grassroots sports clubs through the Covid-19 crisis and into the future.

Tumble RFC has been awarded £22,784 by Sport Wales’ Be Active Wales Fund to help us progress the club with a new floodlighting system for our training field at Parc y Mynydd Mawr. The new system will replace defective 40-year-old floodlights and ensure that we can continue to provide rugby playing opportunities to men, women, boys and girls in our community. The Sport Wales’ funding will make up a significant proportion of the cost with the club self-funding the remainder.

Thanks to the Welsh Government and repurposed money from the National Lottery, the Be Active Wales Fund enables clubs to apply for grants Protect or Prepare during the pandemic and Progress into the future.

Some clubs need the funding to help them stay afloat, while other clubs are using the money to make any adaptations required to ensure their activities are safe once they are given the green light by Welsh Government for their sport to restart.  Others, like Tumble RFC are ready to move forward and progress with a project which will enable more people to enjoy sport like our members do.

A spokesperson for Tumble RFC said: “This funding will make a massive difference for our club.  It will help us continue the development of our facilities at Parc y Mynydd Mawr which started when we obtained a lease on the rugby facilities a few years back through the asset transfer process. Upgrading the floodlights on the training field will ensure that our club remains sustainable which will no doubt attract more people to reap the benefits of sport our existing members already enjoy.

We would also like to thank our park development sub-committee of Roger Perry, Jeremy Goddard, Arwel Davies, Selwyn Morgan and Geraint Davies for their hard work in obtaining this funding and for overseeing the installation over the coming months. Planning permission from Carmarthenshire County Council has been obtained and we hope to start installation at the earliest opportunity”
