Council made the hard decision to close the Llys y Cwm Youth Club in Spring 2018 due to falling numbers. Council are keen to still provide a service for the young people of the area and to best establish what the local community needs/wants have employed Samantha Harrison initially for 12 months as a Children and Youth Co-ordinator. Samantha will work with the local community to establish what activites are currently on offer for the young people in the area. The initial focus will be on Beddau and Tynant and how to utilise Llys y Cwm Hall for the benefit of the community. It is also hoped that the new position will create oppurtinites for the young people of the area to have their voices heard by the Community Council.
