THE organisation which helped set up the new Mount Estate community centre will ask Milford Haven Town Council for more than £1,500 tonight (Thursday).

The Friends of the Mount 's application for funding will go before members, along with bids from four other groups and causes.

If successful, the money will help equip the Larch Road centre's kitchen, helping the centre offer a wider range of activities for its users.

The centre currently runs regular bingo events, youth groups and parenting classes.

Milford Haven Music Festival has also applied for a £1,000 grant towards this year's three-week musical extravaganza.

Also appealing for financial assistance is Milford Haven Rotary Club, which is asking for any money towards its annual fun day to Folly Farm for local children.

Last year, the council donated £300 towards the event, which sees between 40 and 50 local families benefit from an excursion.

Cruse Bereavement Care is asking for £100 to help it continue to offer a year-round service to people across Pembrokeshire.

The service helps people struggling to cope with loss, whether recent or historical.

Since 2009, Cruse has received £575 from the council towards its costs.

Welsh language organisation the Urdd is also asking for any help towards its annual Eisteddfod.

The event, which takes place at different sites across Wales, promotes the language through music, dance, poetry and the arts, and sees children from many county schools take part.
