ecodyfi press release6/12/2004

Mr Lembit Opik MP opened the Teenzone project on Saturday 4th December.

Opik with kidsThis project is the culmination of 4 years work, which has been mainly driven by the young people of the Dyfi valley.

Certificates of Achievement where handed out to the young people who had been involved in the project by Mr Lembit Opik MP.

Following on from this food and entertainment was provided.

Whilst the project has provided Machynlleth with a hard surfaced play area, environmentally friendly shelter and a wildlife area its remit was much wider than this.

teenzone plaqueClive Thomas the Teenzone secretary stated, "The life skills the young people learnt along the way are just as important."

The next part of the project will be to provide a certain amount of skateboard equipment. There is to be a consultation period with the young people about they would like and then the funding and provision process.

Whilst acknowledging all those who have contributed by whatever means, we would like to make special mention to Ecodyfi for their support and help.

Big thanks also go to the W.D.A. Environment Fund who part funded the project, the Princes Trust and the Enfys scheme (part of the Green Spaces & Sustainable Communities programme of the Big Lottery Fund administered in Wales by the Wales Council for Voluntary Action).
