Over £10,000 has been handed out to several sport organisations across the county, Powys County Council has announced.

Now sports and physical groups in Powys are being urged by the council's Sports Development Team to take advantage of a grant worth up to £1,500 to help contribute to creating thriving clubs which will continue to create opportunities through enterprise and innovation.

The grants are designed to make a difference to sport and physical activity locally and are available through the Sportlot Community Chest, the Sports Council for Wales National Lottery funded grant aid scheme.

With just over £20,000 available for the last meeting of this financial year, the council are urging organisations to submit applications so they don't miss out on the grant.

The latest successful organisations that grant funding included:

• Berriew Football Club: £1,430 towards coach education and equipment
• Builth Wells Bowling Club: £440 towards equipment and to set up and run new junior coaching sessions at the club
• Builth Wells Junior Netball Club: £803 towards coach education and facility hire
• Eppynt Carriage Club Ltd: £420 towards equipment
• Forden United Junior Football: £571 towards coach education and equipment
• Llanbister Community Hall: £1,500 towards instructor fees and equipment
• Llanidloes Gymnastics Club: £1,500 towards coach education

• Rhayader Junior Football Club: £738 towards coach education, facility hire and equipment
• Trewern Football Club: £250 towards coach education

Cllr Rachel Powell, Cabinet Member for Sports Development, said: "I'm delighted that we have been able to award these grants to the seven clubs, which will help them thrive and make a difference to sport and physical activity in their area.
