Cynnal Llanddewi Brefi

The Cynnal Llanddewi Brefi project, supported by the Cynnal y Cardi LEADER grant scheme, has brought new facilities and activities to the village hall and community centre. 

A SMART Board interactive whiteboard system, together with video conferencing camera/ microphone/ speaker system has been installed to provide a standalone touchscreen computing/ hybrid meeting facility, with the option for users to connect their own devices to share and access content. 

The system includes an integrated PC, with Microsoft Office installed, and individual user accounts set up for groups, who can access their own documents via One Drive or other remote storage, and create/ save content during meetings/ sessions – including interactive whiteboard content, suggestions etc. 

An electrically adjustable mobile stand allows desk level use for meetings, low level for younger participants or high-level display for group audiences. The display can be moved between rooms to maximise the flexibility of use for different activities. 

A separate waterproof wide-angle video camera and mast system is available for groups to use for mentoring, training, and recording content for meetings and presentations. 

A pilot scheme to provide access to an informal youth social space at the Community Centre has attracted new users and re-engaged young people. 

The Youth ‘Drop in’ sessions have run twice a week from August to the end of October, with up to 18 regularly attending. A survey questionnaire completed by all attendees indicates a high level of satisfaction with the facilities, session times, and volunteer supervisors.
