Gwynedd county councillor for the Tryfan Ward, Arwyn Roberts helped the community centre with its application for the funding.

Councillor Roberts, said: “I’m thrilled with the success of the new scheme.

“I must thank the individuals who work hard here weekly to order the ingredients, prepare the meals and wait on the residents,” he added. “They are worth their weight in gold, ‘diolch yn fawr iawn’!”
