Meet Rhys Lewis the Pen y Cymoedd Community Fund Engagement Officer. Rhys is born and bred of the Cynon Valley in the County Borough of Rhondda Cynon Taf, South Wales.
Rhys has been meeting with community organisations, groups and businesses in the upper Rhondda and Cynon valleys over the last few months to talk about the Community Fund. Rhys has been tasked with gathering the ideas and suggestions that the people of the communities in the upper Rhondda and Cynon valleys have about the Community Fund. Emily Faull, Local Project Officer is doing the same for the Neath and Afan Valleys.
“Community groups, organisations and businesses come in many shapes and sizes and my aim, alongside Emily is to meet with as many as I can before the 31st August deadline. We will also be speaking to local residents at summer events. My advice to those who have not registered an interest in the community fund is don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity!
To those who I have met with thus far, I look forward to meeting you again and to those community groups, organisations and businesses who have yet to submit their ideas, I will no doubt be meeting with you very soon!”
