With Music In Mind CIC is excited to launch a brand new project which will positively impact the community of Cowbridge and the Western Vale.

What is Y Galon?

Y Galon is an age-friendly community hub at the old Red Cross Building on Broadshoard, Cowbridge. The hub will be a warm and welcoming space for the whole community. On offer will be support-groups, gentle exercise, information and signposting, therapies, volunteering opportunities and much more.

Get Involved!

This is a great opportunity for the whole community to get involved and we welcome all offers of support from interested individuals and businesses. There are many ways to participate. Maybe you would like to volunteer at the hub, maybe you have an idea for a service there? Maybe you would like to help with fundraising. You can get in touch with us to discuss anything.

The story so far:

  • With Music In Mind held several formal and informal consultation events to find out from the community what was needed.
  • A search for a suitable venue resulted in finding the Old Red Cross Building in Cowbridge for sale. The venue is in the town centre, close to public transport and affordable.
  • With Music In Mind put in a bid to the Welsh Government Community Facilities Programme alongside applications for match funding. ​​
  • WMIM received an offer of full amount requested.​​
  • Purchase of property was completed on November 16th 2023.
  • Refurbishments start.

Extensive refurbishments are taking place. We need to make the building accessible to everyone, warm and inviting and compliant with current building regulations.

Our Biggest Fundraiser Yet!

With Music In Mind has so far raised 92% of the total funds needed for this project. To finish the renovations and get Y Galon open, we need to raise just over £19,790.
