£10,000 funding approved for Van Rd Trails new Pump Track
9 July 2017 | By billy1979
Van Rd Trails in South Wales has just been awarded £10,000 from the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent’s Partnership Fund to help them to transform into an even better place to ride.
The money will go a long way to funding an all-weather, tarmac pump track which will be a huge asset to riders through the long, wet Winter months when most of the tracks become a bit too mushy to ride due to the surface material. Plans are still in the making and more funds are required (work in progress!) but we hope to get building over the Winter with completion in the Spring.
The Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, Jeff Cuthbert, said: “I would like to congratulate all the projects funded on their success. I know that small amounts of funding can often make a big difference to people’s lives and can sometimes be the catalyst which can help small community projects to develop, grow and help even more people The Partnership Fund is a fantastic way of putting money we have seized from criminals back into the public purse so it can be used for positive community action."
Watch this space for our progress.
