    This film uses material from the Three Parishes Big Local community plan review at Henlle Park Golf Club on 14th March and the community ‘Big Try Day’ in St Martins on 11th May 2019.

  • Weston Rhyn Walking Football
    April 30, 2019      Film
    Three Parishes Big Local recently gave a grant towards start up costs for Walking Football for 12 weeks. Coaches from The New Saints Community Foundation will run the sessions and men and women are invited to come along to the weekly sessions.
  • Three Parishes Big Local and St. Martin’s FC
    December 15, 2018      Film
    St Martins FC play in the Hallmark Security League, Division One South. The Club applied to Three Parishes Big Local for a grant towards the cost of a video camera and a software licence to enable them to film and analyse all their games. They use the film footage and software to analyse game play and develop their coaching strategy. They also share highlights from the film footage on their website and facebook pages, enabling them to keep in touch with their supporters. This is particularly important as they had to move their home ground to a location 4 miles away from St Martins' village a couple of years ago and they want to keep local people keen on following the club.
