A Plaid Cymru Member of the Senedd has paid tribute to a summer playscheme that has been entertaining children for nearly four decades.
Peredur Owen Griffiths praised the Playscheme at Penyrheol, Trecenydd, & Energlyn after calling into a session with his Plaid Cymru colleague and local councillor, Steve Skivens.
The scheme is for children from the local communities and is now in its 37th year.
Peredur said: “I was impressed by the range of activities being put on to entertain local youngsters. None of this would be possible without the hard work of volunteers and the support of the local community council who have supported the scheme.
“The summer holidays can be an expensive six weeks for families and this will especially be the case in the current financial climate.
“Schemes such as this are worth their weight in gold and I salute everyone who has been involved in making it happen.
“I hope it can continue providing affordable fun and entertainment for primary school age pupils for decades to come.”
Councillor Skivens said: “Generations of families have benefitted from this scheme since it was launched all those years ago.
“For some kids, it is the only way they will have such experiences such as trampolining and events through the summer holidays.
“Due to the worsening cost-of-living crisis, schemes like these are more necessary now than for many years previously.
“I would like to say a big well done to the team for making this happen year on year.”
