We understand that there will be a settling in period but would like to thank everyone in advance for supporting this move.  If you have any queries, please speak to the session team manager.

We have had discussions with CCBC regarding the track project at Rhiw Syr Daffydd Primary School and plans for that facility are now developing at pace.  We are extremely pleased and excited to be involved and will post progress updates as they become available.

New athletics centre planned at Rhiw Syr Dafydd Primary School in Oakdale!

Caerphilly County Borough Council have submitted a request to the Welsh Government for a Community Hub grant totalling £755,000 to develop an athletics centre, complete with a six-lane 300-metre running track, at Rhiw Syr Dafydd Primary School in Oakdale.

The new site will support the growth of RVAC to increasing its membership base and along with the floodlit synthetic running track, the site will also include provision for off-field events like high jump, long jump, shot put, javelin and discus.

Details of the Council's report are available here.
