West End girls delighted with £9,000 shop boost

First published in News

WEST End Cuts in Ammanford is being given a facelift thanks to a grant from Carmarthenshire county council and the Welsh Government’s Western Valleys regeneration area scheme.

The Wind Street premises have been given more than £8,900 towards the estimated project costs of around £12,400.

The money will be used to replace the existing UPVC shopfront with timber, replace first floor UPVC windows with timber framed windows, replace existing UPVC rain water goods with cast iron and installation of new signage.

This is the first grant that has been made under the town improvement grant for Ammanford, which has received funding through the Western Valleys Regeneration Area Scheme 2009-2013, funded by the Welsh Government.

The project aims to enhance the appearance of Ammanford and stimulate economic growth in the town.

Project development officer Sam Palmer said: “The applicant is looking to restore the shop front of the property to a traditional look in order to improve the façade of her premises and to attract new custom.

Marie Jones, who runs West End Cuts said: “I am delighted that the works to the shopfront are finally under way.

“I hope the new shopfront will enhance the look of the building and improve the environment of the town.

“The improved shopfront will fit in well with what I have already done to improve the interior of the building for the benefit of my customers.”
