A local judo club and Llanfair United Football Club were among the big winners from the latest round of sports grants handed out by Powys County Council.

Over £19,500 has been handed out to organisations across the county, with Go Judo of Llandrinio picking up £1,100 towards coach education and equipment.

Llanfair United have bagged £1,200 towards coach education, while North Powys Hockey Forum will receive £1,090 towards coach education, facility hire and equipment.

Powys Montgomeryshire Federation of Women’s Institute will receive a grant of £1,500 towards facility hire, instructor costs and equipment.

The council’s Sports Development Team has handed out £46,000 of the £90,000 available for this financial year.

Now sports and physical groups in Powys are being urged by the council’s Sports Development Team to take advantage of a grant worth up to £1,500 to help contribute to creating thriving clubs which will continue to create opportunities through enterprise and innovation.

The grants are designed to make a difference to sport and physical activity locally and are available through the Sportlot Community Chest, the Sports Council for Wales National Lottery funded grant aid scheme.

Cllr Rachel Powell, Cabinet Member for Sports Development, said: “I’m delighted that we have been able to award these grants to the seven clubs, which will help them thrive and make a difference to sport and physical activity in their area.

“With only £44,000 left for this for this financial year, I’m urging organisations to submit applications so they don’t miss out on this grant funding.”

The next deadline for applications is November 6 and for further information contact the council’s Sport Development Team on 01686 614060 or email

Application forms can be downloaded from the Sport Wales website
