xWales Gets £3m Restoration Fund

The construction industry is a winner too with news that a restored classical Georgian church and a former temperance hall are among projects to benefit from winning £3.2m in funding for two Pembrokeshire towns.

Wales' Assembly Government has allocated the money to help revitalise Pembroke and Pembroke Dock with the aim being to improve facilities and restore the area's heritage.

Projects include an extension for new facilities to the Grade II Garrison Chapel and a make over for the Pater Community Hall.

The county council's EU-backed Haven Towns Regeneration Scheme aims to make them more attractive to investors, shoppers and visitors.

The Garrison Chapel, which has already been completely refurbished externally, dates back to 1830 and is thought to be the only surviving classical Georgian Chapel in Wales.

There are plans to turn it into a heritage centre with specific focus on the areas military history.

The new money will pay for builders to construct an extension to house toilets and meeting rooms as well as installing heating so it can be brought back into full use.

It will see a new box office in the lobby and a new kitchen to serve the main hall.
