FRIENDS OF CLYDACH VALE
Cambrian Lakeside Limited was set up in November 2013 as the trading arm of the Cambrian Village Trust with the aim of managing its commercial activities such as the Lakeside Café Bar plus the Cambrian Lakeside Sports Academy 3G Facility. Our trading activities only actually started on the 1st June 2014 with the aim of maximising the community usage of the sports facility attracting usage from many sports groups such as Cardiff City, Wales Vets Football, Rugby Clubs, as well as hosting a college international football match (Wales v Australia).
The Lakeside Café Bar has become a really popular social venue, for local sportspeople as well as the general public, housing Cambrian Football Clubs as well as Cambrian RFC, it is also the home of the Rhondda Rotary club who dedicate their time voluntarily to raising funding to donate to many worthy causes across the world. The Café Bar is also a very popular venue for many outreach community groups such as the elderly and disabled, offering a relaxing environment, fabulous views, and lovely walks, either just around the lower lake or for the more adventurous you can venture up into the mountains, which is ideal for mountain biking, walking, etc.
You will very often see the Rhondda paddlers utilising our exceptional facilities at the lower lake, this along with the occasional pony trekking that is available at the nearby stables creates what is a very pleasant environment for visitors. The facilities at the Lakeside Café Bar are also available for private events such as christenings, Funerals, Anniversaries, Weddings, plus any company training needs.
