service to our country. Using this first event as the
foundation stone, 2010 saw Tredegar Town Council move the event to
Parc Bryn Bach as a family fun day and used the event to raise
funds for the Help For Heroes Appeal. Following the
success of these two years, Tredegar Town Council is continuing to

The Council also provides direct cash grants to the town's
societies and clubs. The town has produced many excellent societies
and clubs which, in turn, provide a diverse set of artistic,
cultural and recreational activities not just for their members but
also for a wider audience via public performances.
Any society or club from Tredegar may apply annually to the
Council for a grant by completing a grant form which is available
from the office or downloaded from this site. The form must be
completed and returned to the Council offices with the most recent
set of financial accounts the assocation as available.
N.B. First time applicants, it will be necessary for members of
your society/club to meet with Members of the Council to discuss
the aims of the society. The Council would also view your
financial statements such as accounts and bank statements plus your
society's Constitution. This will be a one off meeting.
