New 3G pitch completed in Llanfyllin

We have handed over our latest project in Mid Wales – a brand-new third generation multi use sports pitch for Powys County Council.

Work to install the new pitch at Llanfyllin Sports Centre also included an improved floodlighting scheme, drainage works and perimeter fencing.

The 3G pitch will be suitable for football, hockey and a wide variety of other outdoor sports. The project was part of the capital programme to improve facilities across the county to provide positive benefit to the health and well-being to the communities of Powys.

Pave Aways’ construction director Jamie Evans said: “We have very much enjoyed being part of the partnership bringing this valuable new facility to the community.

“We have been able to teach children more about construction and the process of creating this pitch so we hope we may have inspired some builders of the future. It’s also been an important investment in the Powys economy with the use of local sub contractors and materials including stone coming from Cefn Coch near Llanfair Caereinion.”

We have also donated £500 of sports equipment to the school and sponsored a 15-strong team kit that Llanfyllin School will receive in January.

Dewi Owen, Headteacher of Ysgol Llanfyllin, said: “The new pitch looks incredible and is going to be a huge boost to both the school and local community.

“The increase in participation in sport is going to be very significant and this will have a hugely positive effect on pupils’ physical and mental health, which is vital in these post pandemic years. This is a very important development for our community here in north Montgomeryshire.

“Our pupils have been fascinated by the construction work and I’d like to thank Pave Aways for the way they have included the school and our pupils in every step of the process with site tours and information sessions.”
