COMMUNITY projects in and around a Flintshire village have the chance to win thousands of pounds from Redrow.

Ahead of launching its Millstone View Development, off Chester Road, the homebuilder is inviting applications for funding from local charities, community groups and other good causes from Penyffordd.

Redrow aims to support as many groups as possible and will share out £10,000 accordingly.

Jason Newton, sales director for Redrow Homes, said: "We also like to play a role in supporting communities at grass roots level and ensuring we make a positive contribution locally. Our community funds are a great way to do this.

"In other areas we have supported a wide range of things from toddlers play groups to knit and natter groups for pensioners, from sponsoring sports teams to providing circus trips for under-privileged children and from paying for afternoon tea for carers to funding a monument to commemorate one of the suffragettes.

"We've been really surprised and thrilled by the variety of applications and we're really looking forward to hearing how people in Penyffordd, Penymynydd and the surrounding villages think we can help."

The new Millstone View development is set to launch in 2019 and as well as 85 new homes, the development created the new White Lion Nature Reserve which is now run by a national wildlife charity.

Redrow will also contribute over over £930,000 towards local education, benefitting Penyffordd Primary School and Castell Alun High School.

Anyone wishing to register their interest in the latest homes at Millstone View can do so online via or by calling 01244 432 832.

Those wishing to nominate a project for Redrow to consider supporting can email to request an application form and must state 'Penyffordd Community Fund' in the subject line.

The deadline for completed applications is October 31.
