The initial activity which was supported by Cynnal y Cardi was to run a series of events/activities in spring/summer 2012 that will add to the market research for the main project and will inform a test community support.
The initial Objectives of Cwmni Cletwr were to investigate the viability, and promote the formation, of a shop, garage and cafe facility at Cletwr Services, Tre’r Ddôl, Ceredigion, that meets the needs of the community.
Cwmni Cletwr held a community evening on 28th March 2012, at which visitors from the Cwm Trannon project talked about their business. There was also a display about the Cletwr project aims.The open day held on the 21st April 2012 was a triumph which attracted passing traffic as well as local people.
It is Cwmni Cletwr’s hope that the re-opening of the services will be a huge boost to the rural area and will provide a number of paid jobs. Other staff will be local volunteers, giving people opportunities to interact, gain skills and self-worth through contributing to their community.
