The Welsh Government held three rural Funding Fairs across Wales during March 2017, organised by the Wales Rural Network Support Unit (WRNSU).

The events were aimed at providing attendees with the opportunity to learn about the various funding options available to businesses, communities, farms and other enterprises through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 as well as other sources. The events were held on;

  • 2 March – Peterstone Super Ely, Vale of Glamorgan
  • 8 March – Builth Wells Showground
  • 15 March –Llanrwst

Presentations and Q&A sessions were available on a number of the schemes; 

Farming Connect, Glastir Woodland Creation, Glastir Advanced and LEADER/RCDF.

In addition to the presentations there were trade stands with various scheme leads providing information as well as Local Action Groups, WCVA, Business Wales, Visit Wales, Farm Liaison Service, Big Lottery etc. 

Overall the event provided attendees with the opportunity to speak to experts, view presentations on scheme areas of choice and to find out more about the various funding routes available.

On average around 60 to 70 attendees had been recorded at each event. 

WRNSU wished to thank everyone who attended the events, and in particular the support of the Local Action Groups for their presence at the Funding Fairs and for promoting the events at a local level.
