Brecon Buzz wins Sustainable Development Fund Grant for a BOO!
Brecon Buzz Directors are delighted to have secured a £5,000 grant to contract a ‘Brecon Opportunity Officer’ (BOO) to undertake a Review of Brecon Signage, Welcome and Visitor Information. The grant has been awarded by the Sustainable Development Fund - Brecon Beacons National Park Authority.
Brecon Buzz is a Community Interest Company that was incorporated in January 2021 with one of their core objectives being a desire to make more of Brecon's assets both for the local community and visitors to the town.
The Brecon Buzz Directors are all business owners in Brecon and spend much of their time talking to people about how to get to different places and letting visitors know what the town has to offer.
The review will tick off many of the actions highlighted as being needed in different sections of the Brecon 2020 town plan regarding how people are welcomed to Brecon, follow signs around town and how they discover walks and places of interest. The review will lay the ground work for applications in 2022 to fund welcome banners, street and pedestrian signage as well as new information boards at sites across the town telling people about ideas for walking, the history of the town and where to visit.
Brecon Buzz are seeking applications for the short term role to start immediately and all enquiries should be sent by email to email@example.com. Alternatively Leigh Hendra of The Hours Bookshop, Punch Maughan of Found Gallery or Sue Phair at Ty Cariad will be happy to talk informally about the project. The deadline for applications is 18th October.
