The arts and community centre will be a place to meet, have fun and learn .
Prior to the refurbishment the centre was used for art classes, workshops, music, social meetings and gatherings, open days, training days, capacity building workshops, art exhibitions, local history society exhibitions and canoe events, working in partnership with the Llandysul Paddlers.
As one person, who has now become a well know artist said, “it all started in a lifelong learning centre I attended after I retired. The Tuesday morning art class has given me a new lease on life, I discovered skills I did not know that I had”.
This is the vision of the Power House, to develop the Power House as a creative opportunities provider for an alternative curriculum , to give everybody in the community the opportunity to have access to learning and social inclusion covering and including the needs of all. This meets the aims and objectives of the Power House, and has been the intention of a committed group of volunteers who have worked together for 10 years to bring the building back to use for the community.
We are looking for volunteers to help us at The Power House, please drop by or contact us.
This unique HISTORICAL building had generated interest from many quarters and following a public meeting in 1999 a new committee was democratically formed, including representatives from three community councils, two local county councillors accountable to their respective authorities together with enthusiastic individuals from other organisations interested in regenerating the village . This new committee took on the new vision to renovate the building to fulfil current requirements and a charitable constitutional status was adopted at a meeting in May 2002.
In December 2006 the committee registered as a Company with Companies House.
This committed group of volunteers have continually ensured the progress of work throughout the past ten years, together with the valuable support of the residents of the community.
