Communities First Christmas Special!
Become a member of ecodyfi We want everybody in the Valley to join, so it only costs £1. Drop into Ty Bro Dyfi or send some stamps.
The information centre is open Monday to Friday between 10.00 and 3.00. You might even like to get involved in staffing it or in helping to run a project. Please come and see us!
This is in response to feedback from young people of Ysgol Bro Ddyfi, who were asked the question in 2003, "If you had between £100 and £1,000, what would you do that would improve life for young people in the Dyfi Valley?"
Of their responses, over 50% polled asked for some form of local live music event.
The gig will be held in the Community Hall, Machynlleth on 18th December, from 7.30-11.00pm. Tickets are £3.00 on the door.
It will be an exciting opportunity to see up-and-coming band Kentucky AFC (see photo), Little Miss Mental, a popular local band with a strong following and local band, Acid Reign, who will be making their public debut! All young people in the area are encouraged to come along and enjoy the event.
Adam Walton, Radio Wales: "Most of the best records that have been made this year£have been pop records£My top two are still Kentucky AFC's deuce of brilliant singles this year, Bodlon and Outlaw."
A Juice Bar, staffed by young people, will provide refreshments. Stewards from the community will be present throughout the night and it will be an alcohol-free event.
This will also be an opportunity to talk with young people and find out from them what their needs are and how they see the Dyfi Valley developing - what they would like to see happen. This information will then feed into the Communities First strategy for the area.
It will also be an opportunity to develop the local Youth Forum, consisting of young people representing the area, who would be consulted on local decision making by the council. All aspects of community life have an impact on young people, who are concerned about a large number of issues - access to a safe place to play and socialise, access to affordable housing and the prospect of relevant training and jobs.
