The ‘Making it Happen’ competition, launched last year, sought applications from independent charitable or not-for-profit organisations based within a three mile radius of Pennant’s Parc y Dderwen development in Pontardawe.
The contractor has constructed a fence around the perimeter of Pontardawe RFC’s multipurpose community space. This will enable children to play and train safely at the site, prevent damage to the grounds and it will aid in the management of future events.
The construction of the fence took place over two days from February 19 -20.
The Pontardawe RFC clubhouse is just a few minutes’ drive away from Pennant’s Parc y Dderwen site, and the area has a rich history of rugby development. The club is committed to developing the mini, junior and senior rugby teams in Pontardawe. The club also provides an important venue and has helped to deliver a growing range of community events including, the annual Pontardawe fireworks display, the Pontardawe Carnival and the Ponty Proms in the Park.
Ian Morgan, managing director at Morganstone, said:
“We are really pleased with the work on the new fence for Pontardawe RFC. It has been a great opportunity for the staff to be able to share their expertise with the winners. Pontardawe RFC has a long history of community engagement and it has been fantastic to be able to help such an important community-focused organisation through the ‘Making it Happen’ competition.”
Sandra Marsh sales manager at Pennant, said:
“This has been a great opportunity for us to give something back to the area in which we are developing. The project was essential in ensuring that the community events and rugby training sessions are able to continue and we are delighted to have been able to deliver a boost not only to the club but to the wider community.”
Pennant and Morganstone are currently working in partnership at the Pontardawe development. There are a number of 2 and 3-bedroom properties for sale at Parc y Dderwen with the Sales Office open Thursday – Monday, 10am – 5pm.
