South Hook’s Community Fund Provides Welcome Boost for Local Groups

15th Oct 21

Community groups and projects from across Pembrokeshire are continuing to benefit from the financial support offered through South Hook LNG’s Community Fund.

Managed in partnership with Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services (PAVS), the Fund offers up to £5,000 in support of projects that seek to enhance local communities in the areas of safety, environment, education and wellbeing.

From digital educational resources at Haverfordwest Museum and outdoor learning equipment for local schools to sailing equipment for youngsters at Pembrokeshire Yacht Club and improvement works at village Halls, the South Hook Community Fund welcomes Applications from across the County.

“Recent projects that we have been pleased to support, are perfect examples of how our Community Fund can give an extra boost to local groups, benefiting Pembrokeshire people in all sorts of ways” said Mariam Dalziel, South Hook LNG’s PR Manager.

Herbrandston Community Council has been able to purchase defibrillators that have been placed at the Village’s Sports Field and Sandy Haven beach, helping to keep residents and visitors safe.

Participants at Pembrokeshire Mencap’s Stackpole Gardens are benefiting from the installation of a new safe and accessible, solar powered washing station, helping then to keep clean as they tend their growing plots within the walled garden. 

Strength Academy Wales (SAW) has purchased equipment that is supporting wellbeing classes for those who may have disabilities, are recovering from illness, or experiencing challenges with social inclusion.

 “PAVS is pleased to work with South Hook LNG which supports community groups in such a wide variety of ways, benefitting people of all ages and abilities. The SHLNG LNG Community Fund continued to support groups throughout the Covid 19 pandemic and looks forward to receiving new applications as groups restart activities.' Commented Caroline Marmara, Funding Development Officer at PAVS.
