Council’s coronation event receives funding boost from East Wales

02 May 2023

A Community Council in Cardiff has received a cash boost towards its community coronation event.

Old St Mellons Community Council has received £1,000 from our East Wales region through our Community Champions scheme, in which we donate up to £50,000 a year to good causes across Wales.

The funding will be used by the Council to host a Children’s Coronation Tea Party in honour of King Charles Coronation on Monday 8th May.

The region is currently building quality new homes at its nearby St Edeyrns Village development, offering a range of quality new two, three, and four-bedroom homes for local families.

Chair of Old St Mellons Community Council, Cllr Dianne Rees, said:

“We’re thrilled to receive this generous donation from Persimmon Homes East Wales, which will help support our Children’s Coronation Tea Party in honour of King Charles’ Coronation on Monday 8th May.

“It’s a once in a lifetime event and these funds will also allow us to give each child attending a Coronation mug.

“It promises be a very special event for the children with a special tea and an entertainer and a memorable occasion for all involved.

“Persimmon has a significant local presence in our area with its St Edeyrns Village development and we are delighted to receive their support.”

Victoria Williams, Sales Director at Persimmon Homes East Wales, said:

“We’re delighted to be able to support the Council and the local community with this money for its special Coronation event next month.

“Persimmon’s Community Champions initiative is all about supporting the communities where we build, and our presence in the area only continues to increase through our delivery of much-needed new homes for local people at St Edeyrns.

“We would like to wish Old St Mellons Community Council and local families attending all the very best for the Coronation Tea Party next month.”
