Visited by Royalty? Well almost…….

Our amazing new building was officially opened yesterday by H.M Lord Lieutenant of Mid Glamorgan Mrs Kate Thomas CVO,CSTJ,JP

It would be easy to feel overawed in the presence of one of the Queen’s representative but this incredible lady was warm, welcoming and very complimentary about our building. It was a real honour and privilege to have her with us.

The event went incredibly well, thanks to our volunteers Bryan, Mike, Ben, Elaine and of course, as always Glenn and Marion. We had over 40 guests and it was great for our funders to be able to witness first hand how the money had been spent and how it would touch the lives not only of the people in Fir Tree Drive but also in Treharris and the wider community.

Thanks to Sally and Bill from Hafod Housing for their help and support as always. We hope people will spread the word now and start to use not only our lovely Cafe but also Hire our rooms for any upcoming events they may have.

Check out our Gallery for more pictures from the day.

    Well done and thank you to the staff, Board and Volunteers of the Fir Tree Community Association. You all pulled together to make sure the Official Opening for the new Fir Tree Centre was such a great success. I look forward to working with you all as we head toward 2015!! Sally (Hafod Housing)
