Llanelli & Mynydd Mawr Railway celebrate funding success

There’s good news for Cynheidre as the Llanelli and Mynydd Mawr Railway (L&MMR) have been awarded a £1907.67 grant from The Coalfields Regeneration Trust.

The Community Grant was set up to strengthen and celebrate Coalfield Communities, which are currently facing unprecedented challenges because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The funding will enable the L&MMR to provide solar lighting throughout the site.

David Mee, Publicity Officer said: “This funding from the Coalfields Regeneration Trust is a great help in developing a safe environment for our visitors and volunteers and is one more step towards making the L&MMR a first class destination and attraction for the local community ”

Gary Ellis, Chief Executive, The Coalfields Regeneration Trust, said: “This is a vital grant to help the L&MMR provide a better service to its community. The Coalfields Regeneration
Trust exists to help provide quality infrastructure in former mining communities.

We also recognise the importance of retaining and developing local facilities and social enterprises which provide services to former mining communities. Grants like this one are giving a
helping hand to organisations across our Coalfield Communities.”

You will be able to see the solar lighting during one of our regular open days, the next being this weekend on Saturday 13th August. Details:
