A COMMUNITY project hit by the Coronavirus pandemic has been given a welcome boost from The National Lottery Community Fund.

Meliden’s Y Shed project had been open for just nine months when the country went into lockdown.

The Grade II listed building, which had undergone a £1.2 million revamp after standing empty for years, is home to a café and four start-up businesses. All were forced to close, impacting the businesses, the project, and the community surrounding Y Shed.

Spearheaded by charitable housing association Grŵp Cynefin and Meliden Residents Action group, Y Shed had become a valuable part of village life.

Mair Edwards, Grŵp Cynefin’s Community Initiatives Manager, said: “In the short time since it opened, Y Shed had nurtured new businesses, provided a showcase for local artists and crafters and firmly established itself in the heart of Meliden. The sudden closure of the building, café, and businesses felt overwhelming.”

Thanks to the National Lottery’s Community Fund, Y Shed has been awarded £18,100 through its COVID-19 Top Up Grant.
