Barry Athletic Community Hub
Hi all, I am currently co-ordinating a funding application on behalf of all sections of the Barry Athletic Club. The club consist of lawn bowls, cricket, football, tennis and brass band sections. Our site is located between the old harbour car park and Barry Island beach and has been in existence for over a century.
Our idea is to create a multi-functional community facility that will be open for all. The vision is a large 2 storey building that will cater for the needs of everyone. Upstairs would be a large function room available for parties, conferences, concerts etc. We have identified an architect who will work 'at risk' and will soon be starting a community consultation survey to gather ideas and identify gaps in local provisions that could utilise a new build facility.
We have met with local cabinet members to discuss our idea and they have supported what we are trying to achieve.
What do people think about a multi-functional community facility in the heart of Barry Island?
Any idea's, thoughts or help will be more than welcomed!!
