Two key organisations have met with Plaid Cymru Assembly Member for Ynys Môn Rhun ap Iorwerth this week as he continued to push for the development of new all-weather pitch facilities in Holyhead and Amlwch.
The Ynys Môn AM met with representatives from Sport Wales and the FAW Trust in the Assembly this week to discuss the possibility of developing all-weather pitch facilities in both communities, taking the campaign forward having regularly met and discussed the need for these facilities with community groups in both areas over recent months.
Mr ap Iorwerth will be meeting again with community groups from both areas in the next few weeks, and will also be looking to arrange an opportunity for Sport Wales to meet with the groups directly to discuss the need for these facilities.

Mr ap Iorwerth said:
“I’ve had a very, very good meeting this week with representatives from Sport Wales and the FAW Trust regarding the possibility of developing all-weather pitch facilities in Holyhead and Amlwch.
“One very important thing is that they clearly see Anglesey as a top priority for them in delivering all-weather pitches, and they agreed with me that both areas put forward a very strong case for needing these facilities.
“I will be meeting again with community groups from both areas in the coming days and weeks, and I’ll also be looking to arrange a meeting for clubs from both areas to discuss the projects further with Sport Wales directly.
“Sport Wales and the FAW Trust are very keen to work with me on this. It takes time to do things like this, but the key thing is where we’re heading, and that is towards all-weather pitches in Holyhead and Amlwch.
“It is going to take a lot of work and a lot of collaboration from Sport Wales, the FAW Trust, the County Council and so many others, but let’s get there.”
