Residents are to benefit from three upgraded Artificial Turf Pitches (ATP) in Cardigan, Lampeter and Synod Inn early next year.

Ceredigion County Council received a grant from Sport Wales and the Football Association of Wales - Wales Grassroots Fund earlier this year to upgrade the ATP’s with new carpets.

Although weather dependent, the renovation work is expected to start early in the new year and will be completed by Spring 2023.

  • The site in Cardigan will become a 3G surface with a rugby shock pad. The work is due to commence early next year and will take 8 weeks.
  • The site in Lampeter will remain a 2G surface which can be used for a variety of sports. The work is due to commence late February and is expected to take 6 weeks.
  • The site in Synod Inn will become a 3G surface and will take approximately 4 weeks to complete, beginning late February 2023.

In order for the renovations to be completed efficiently and safely, all pitches will be closed during these periods.

Councillor Bryan Davies, Leader of the Council said: “This is a very exciting development for the County’s leisure facilities. As a council our aim is to provide modern, accessible, inspiring facilities to encourage our residents to be physically active and improve their wellbeing and the ATP upgrades will make a significant contribution to this.”
