Vote delayed on Young Farmers' funding.

A DECISION on the future charitable funding for the Urdd and Young Farmers on Anglesey will be made next month.

A meeting of Anglesey's Charitable Trust has approved to continue offering a total of PS350,000 in larger grant applications for 2019/20.

The Isle of Anglesey Charitable Trust, worth over PS21m, administers the money received from Shell when the company closed its oil terminal near Amlwch.

The trust, set up in 1990, is made up of all 30 Anglesey councillors who meet on a regular basis as trustees to share out the available funds between local groups, societies and good causes - usually spending the interest.

But a vote on a decision to continue funding the island's Urdd and Young Farmers branches by PS40,000 and PS30,000 a year respectively was delayed after concerns that proper procedure was not being followed.
