We are a small Constituted Community Group of volunteers formed in 2017 who aim to encourage and support community ideas and projects from seed to oaks! 

Our underlying aim is to bring together the Villages of Gilwern, Maesygwartha, Llanelly Hill and Clydach through supporting and enhancing an inclusive community from the roots up that is viable, sustainable, and resilient both ecologically and socially. We are always open and happy to support any new community ideas or projects, so please get in touch. We would love to hear from you!

 

LATEST NEWS.... Can you help us in our search for a Treasurer.

We are looking for a volunteer Treasurer to join our group to oversee our financial affairs and ensure they are legal, constitutional and within accepted accounting practice.

Duties will involve day to day bookkeeping, preparing monthly and year end reports and keeping the Trustees aware of their financial responsibilities.  We are applying to become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, and if successful the Treasurer will work with an external accountant to fulfil the Charity Register requirements.

We have minimal income and outgoings, so envisage around 4 – 5 hours/month time commitment, including attendance at Trustee meetings (held every quarter) and at our Finance Committee meetings. Times/dates vary as they are organised around availability. 

Although the role is home-based, some investment into the Gilwern community is preferred, i.e. school or family connections.

Our group activities include a weekly community café, Gilwern Grows - community food growing and sharing, Gilfest - an annual community festival, a summer scarecrow trail, litterpicks and other one-off fundraising events.
