Pennant Homes and Morganstone Construction have teamed up to make a local primary school’s dreams come true.
Pennant’s ‘Making it Happen’ initiative gives local, non-profit organisations the opportunity to receive time and materials from Pennant volunteers and Morganstone operatives to complete any work that is required. Submissions were invited earlier this year from within 4 miles of new development Maes y Ffynnon in Gorglas.
Whilst a submission from Y Neuadd, Cefneithin, was named the winning project, Llanddarog School in Carmarthenshire was chosen as a runner up after Pennant received a request to transform a multi-purpose room within the school. This particular submission inspired the lead team at Pennant as the pupils’ parents had already worked tirelessly to complete maintenance works.
“After applying for the scheme we were so pleased when it was accepted, we have a very tight budget and every penny counts! A makeover on this 160 year old building will help us give a great first impression to those visiting our very special school. We are very grateful to Pennant Homes and Morganstone Construction for their fantastic support,” said Headteacher Meinir Jones.
Pennant Homes, which forms part of Coastal Housing Group, launched the inspiring initiative to deliver support to the community, whilst further supporting training and employment within the local area.
“This is a great example of two organisations working together to help the local community. We are delighted to be involved and it’s great to see the difference our efforts are making to this important village school,” said Stuart Jones, Development Manager at Morganstone.
“We are delighted to be able to support and provide some valuable help to the school in this important village community,” added Clare Watkins from Coastal Housing and Pennant Homes.
