Renovation on the cards for Old St Mellons Village Hall thanks to the LCF

Old St Mellons Village Association has secured a £9,000 grant from Biffa Award; a multi-million pound fund that helps to build communities and transform lives through awarding grants to community and environmental projects across the UK, as part of the Landfill Communities Fund. 

The hall, which was originally opened in 1984, was awarded funding under Biffa Award’s Community Buildings theme.  Works to completely renovate the ladies and gents toilets will include the installation of brand new fixtures and fittings and the replacement of damaged ceilings and floorings.  Once the major works have been completed the lighting will be upgraded and redecoration will take place.

Hilary Walkey Williams, Chair, Old St Mellons Village Association, said:

“The grant from Biffa Award will be used to install new ladies & gents toilets, affording hygienic sanitary conditions much to the delight of the current users of the hall.”

Michelle Michaelis, President of St Mellons WI, said:

“Once the new toilets are installed we will no longer be ashamed when anyone wishes to use the facilities, particularly visitors to the group. We may well increase the number of members all thanks to the Old St Mellons Village Association being successful in obtaining this generous grant.”

Gillian French, Biffa Award Programme Manager, said:

“This project is an excellent example of how the Landfill Communities Fund can help improve local spaces for the community. The new facilities will serve the hall for many years to come and we are pleased to support it.”

Landfill Tax and the Landfill Communities Fund

Any waste that is discarded which cannot be reused, reprocessed or recycled may ultimately be disposed of in a landfill site. To encourage Landfill site Operators (LOs) to re-use, recycle, recover more value from waste and use more environmentally friendly methods of waste disposal, landfill tax is charged on each tonne of waste sent to landfill.

LOs are able to claim a credit (currently 5.1%) against their landfill tax liability to support a wide range of community and environmental projects in the vicinity of their landfill sites through the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF). The LCF is regulated by ENTRUST on behalf of HM Revenue & Customs, and the projects are delivered by Environmental Bodies (EBs).

Since its inception in 1996, over £1.3 billion has been spent on more than 50,000 projects across the UK. For further information, please visit www.entrust.org.uk or see HMRC’s general guide to Landfill Tax.
