Crocus Planting – Purple4Polio Campaign

January 6th

Sunday morning saw a group of local residents plant crocus bulbs on the triangle in Llangors. 500 bulbs were given by Brecon Rotary Club to plant in the village, to help raise awareness of the efforts made to eradicate Polio across the world. This is a national campaign and thousands of crocus bulbs have been planted around the country (Purple4Polio Campaign).

Watch out for the dazzling display later in the Spring!

Support for Refugees

Llangors Youth and Community Centre is proud to support Hay, Brecon and Talgarth Sanctuary for Refugees (HBTSR). The charity provides important ‘Respite Days’ for people living in South Wales, mainly in Swansea but also in Newport and Cardiff, as well as Syrian families who have been housed in Powys under the Government’s Resettlement Scheme.  People seeking sanctuary have fled from war, torture and/or persecution in their own country and many will face ongoing hardships in Wales with a risk of falling into poverty or homelessness.

Maintenance work at the Community Centre

It has been necessary to undertake major maintenance work at the Community Centre due to the boiler breaking down during the summer and lights not meeting the required standard.

The project has four specific aspects:

  1. Replacement of the outside lights, 7 of which act as emergency lights and do not now last the required 3 hours. The new lights would be LED and light downwards.
  2. Changing the tube lights inside to the Hall, Foyer and Meeting Room to LED lights giving a significant saving in electricity costs.
  3. Installing a new boiler to replace the existing boiler which no longer works. The new boiler will be significantly more efficient in itself and coupled with alterations, to include replacing an immersion heater serving the kitchen, and adding climate controls will also lead to more economic usage.
  4. Connecting the 7-5 kw of solar panels, which we financed ourselves, to a new well insulated tank to augment the heating from the boiler.

These new improvements will significantly benefit Llangors Youth & Community Centre to continue to serve the local and wider communities.

The total estimated cost is : £14,732
We have been awarded from the NP Sustainability Fund: £5,525
We have been awarded from the Powys Regeneration Fund: £6,707
Leaving us to find: £2,500
£14,732


We are very grateful for a donation of £1,500 from the Sri Lanka curry evening towards the amount we need to provide.
The boiler firm are due to start on Wednesday 3rd October and to finish on Friday 12th. The other items will follow on later in October.
