The community council also had its application for £30,000 towards the redevelopment of Summerhill play area approved as well as nearly £4,000 to piolet free wi-fi on part of the seafront.

Angle Community Council had its application for funds for a play area project approved, with more than £11,000 signed off, with Solva and the Havens Community Councils also receiving grants for pay area upgrades.

Crymych Football Club will revive £6,000 to update communal changing rooms, £27,000 will go to Cymdeithas Cwm Arain’s community links projects, nearly £4,000 was approved for the Fishguard Invasion Trust Ltd’s genealogy project and nearly £2,000 for a positive living project by Life Seeker CIC was agreed.
