Pontypridd’s Save The Muni Campaign 

Ragsy sings at the Open Day on 10th September 

 

Pontypridd's Muni Arts Centre closed on Saturday 4th October following a final production by Frank Vickery. The venue is a casualty of Rhonnda Cynon Taff County Borough Councils' need to shave tens of millions of pounds from their operating costs after cuts in their government funding. Now local organisations are preparing plans to submit to the Council for re-opening the Muni.

For example, over 100 people with ideas and suggestions on how Pontypridd’s Muni Arts Centre can be preserved as a community arts venue attended the Open Day organised by the Muni Working Group, which is developing a business proposal for the sustainable future of the centre in community ownership. This group consists of Pontypridd Town Council, Artis Community and Cylch Cymreig, with the backing of Pontypridd’s MP and AM, more than 4,000 other people and GTFM. For more information contact:

 

Wendy York 01443 490390 or email wendy@artiscommunity.org.uk.

75 Hour 'Radiothon' a great success!


GTFM presenters Mark Andrews Geoff Davies and Gavin Powell succeeded in broadcasting LIVE, non-stop, for 75 hours from 7am Fri 30th May to 10am Monday 2nd June, accompanied by a host of other GTFM and community voices, including special guest appearances and live performances. Follow the links to see comprehensive reports on how the weekend unfolded on our Facebook and Twitter pages. With funds still coming in the final total is likely to be around £2,400, split 50/50 between GTFM and  Rhondda Breast  Friends.

If you took part in any way, very many thanks from everyone at both charities. Particular thanks to the many local businesses and organisations which sponsored individual hours of the broadcast and Tesco Upper Boat and Sainsbury's Pontypridd which allowed bucket collections to be carried out in their stores,  plus
Frankie & Benny's which provided refreshments and hosted a Rhondda Breast Friends Coffee Morning.
