Following on from the above posts, re. the new hotel at Surf Snowdonia.

Under the plan a 106-bedroom Hilton Garden Inn would open next to the lagoon along with a 'wellness spa' and conference facilities.
The company also revealed a new brand and more details of its game-changing new adventure offer which will open to visitors in summer 2019.
Surf Snowdonia, which opened in 2015, will rebrand to Adventure Parc Snowdonia to reflect its broader offer, although the 300-metre inland surf lagoon will remain a key part of the attraction.
Investment in the development will be in the region of £16m and Surf Snowdonia say around 100 new roles will be created.

A FORMER popular tourist attraction has officially been closed off to the public.

Bodelwyddan Castle Trust said said that public access is no longer granted for the woodlands, parklands, play area and trench experience. The trust were hoping to stay open until the end of the year, but 'various obstacles' have resulted in the early decision to close.

GRANTS from a fund which has paid out nearly £4 million in 10 years are on offer again this year.

Applications to the fund are being sought by The Gannett Foundation, the charitable arm of Gannett Co, Inc, owner of Newsquest Media Group, which publishes the North Wales Pioneer.

Charities in North Wales are being urged to apply for a grant from the fund, with a deadline of Friday, October 18. The judges will meet in November to choose the winners.

A spokesman for Newsquest said: “We value practical and creative projects that bring lasting benefits to the communities and neighbourhoods served by our newspapers and online audience.

“That includes schemes for neighbourhood improvement and local problem-solving, economic development, youth development, education and cultural enrichment, care of the elderly or infirm, help for the disadvantaged or disabled, and environmental conservation.

“We particularly invite clearly reasoned applications asking for specific items of equipment or materials. Most of our applications are for relatively modest sums meeting everyday needs and that will be our special focus in 2019.

“We are also able to join with other contributors to support elements of more ambitious projects. While preference will be given to ideas which create a tangible and durable benefit, we will consider single events, performances or other projects of limited duration that otherwise meet our criteria.”

Applicants must be registered charities, and must not have received a grant from the fund within the last two years.

Gannett Foundation UK 2019 Application Form.docx
Grant forms IDEALLY the trustees prefer grant application to be in electronic PDF format on the standard application form but paper applications can be accepted.

To find out more email news@northwalespioneer.co.uk

In every case, applications must arrive by 5pm on Friday, October 18, 2019.

Dramatic images of what's planned for the Ferodo and Plas Brereton sites have been released as the formal pre-application consultation gets underway.

Maybrook Investments, which owns Ferodo, had completed the deal to take on derelict mansions Plas Brereton and Plas Tŷ Coch.

The developer announced that they wanted to build a holiday village and water park on the site and were in discussions with Landal Greenparks, one of Europe’s leading park operators.           You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
