STEER – The Enterprise Academy at Tondu House Farm has enjoyed a successful launch of its new Resource and Wellbeing Centre with key community figures and members of the public in attendance.
MP for Ogmore, Chris Elmore, attended the event which sought to celebrate the developing facility and its recent achievements.
Mr Elmore commented: “The Enterprise Academy is a gem nestled in the Tondu countryside. Whether it be for staff training events, to rural walks, to a quick cuppa at the community café, this place has it all!”
STEER is developing an exemplar model of local sustainable development. Currently at the 37-acre site, there is a community café, facilities for workshops, a residential bunkhouse, a volunteer hub, a sensory garden, a Men’s Shed, community allotments and allotments for local residents to use.
The local MP continued: “It’s great to see the fantastic opportunities and activities Tracey Miles and her team put on here. This really is a local asset and I’m delighted to be seeing the project go from strength to strength.”
During the launch celebration, Mr Elmore and other guests were provided with a guided tour of the site by local volunteers who shared their experiences of the work they undertake at the site.
