Plas Gwyn is a Grade-II* listed farmhouse and with Grade-II listed buildings in North Wales dating from the 16th century. Donald Insall Associates was commissioned to sensitively restore the house and provide a contemporary extension fit for modern living whilst respecting the farmhouse’s historic significance and character. With distinctive stepped gables, this ‘plas’ is a rare building type and was the dominant gentry house form in Snowdonia before the end of the 17th century.Save this picture!© Andy MarshallSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Andy MarshallRespecting the original design integrity of the listed farmhouse was a key consideration in the creation of the single-storey new extension which houses a kitchen and informal dining space. The low profile ensures that, although raised to allow level-access, it sits below the ridge line of the existing dairy, minimising impact onto the house. The foot print of the extension is deliberately aligned with the boundary walls of the dairy to ensure that the rear of the Elizabethan range will still be dominant. Slim-profile double glazed windows angle to the north to give magnificent views of open countryside, Snowdonia National Park and its foothills beyond. A glazed link connects to the historic house and allows the historic masonry wall to be clearly seen.  Save this picture!© Andy MarshallProviding the extension allowed for the retention of the dairy, significant in relation to the developments of agricultural improvements in the 19th century, and the careful repair of the historic house. Alterations included underfloor heating to the hall and Victorian rear extension.  Blocked historic windows were opened up to provide additional light to the stone stair, and the removal of an internal partition created an enlarged main bedroom. Plas Gwyn is in the top 8% of the listed buildings in Wales.  With each element visibly of its time, the renovation and contemporary extension clearly demonstrates sensitive design within a historic context. The house is available for let via Airbnb.Save this picture!© Andy MarshallProject gallerySee allShow lessAerial Photographs of Buenos Aires’ Empty Streets During the Mandatory QuarantineArticlesSearching for a “Plural” Architect: An Interview with Lombardini22Interviews Share Year:  Area:  200 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” United Kingdomlast_img read more

Cabinet Office gives £255k to charities in Eastern England to help young people get involved in community action

first_img“UKCF is extremely excited to be supporting the Cabinet Office and Step Up To Serve in increasing youth participation and volunteering in the East of England.“Strengthening communities and increasing community engagement is the very reason community foundations exist, and the involvement of young people is crucial to the future of our communities. We believe it is vital young people are encouraged to engage in their local community, and we are thrilled to be working with our foundations in Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk to make it happen.”How to applyApplications from organisations in the three counties can be made via:• Cambridgeshire Community Foundation Local Youth Social Action Fund• Suffolk Community Foundation information about the funding• Norfolk Community Foundation information on applying for fundingApplications from other areas in England for the Youth Social Action Fund are now open. The Cabinet Office is giving £1 million to charities who help get young people more engaged in community action. Of that, £255,000 will be distributed by Community Foundations in the east of England.The £1 million has been put forward via the Youth Social Action Fund, as part of the Government’s ongoing support for the #iwill engagement campaign, run by national charity Step Up To Serve. This aims to increase participation in youth social action (volunteering, fundraising and campaigning) by 50% by 2020Although most of the funding will be given away in large grants across the UK, £255,000 has been ear-marked especially for the East of England, after an official survey last year revealed only 25 per cent of 10-20-year olds in the region say they get involved their local community. Nationally the figure is 40%.Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and SuffolkThe £255,000 is being split equally between three of the region’s community foundations, and grassroots groups will be encouraged to apply for small grants of up to £5,000 for youth social action projects running from 2015-2016.Cambridgeshire Community Foundation, Suffolk Community Foundation and Norfolk Community Foundation already run a variety of youth engagement programmes, and expect to support even more – from befriending schemes, where young people help local older people with daily tasks and IT skills, to dog walking, outdoor maintenance and mentoring schemes.Matched givingThe foundations are also encouraging local donors, businesses and social investment companies to match the funds put up by the government, to ensure the chosen projects can run on into 2017.UK Community Foundations‘ chief executive Fabian French said: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Funding statutory Cabinet Office gives £255k to charities in Eastern England to help young people get involved in community actioncenter_img Howard Lake | 5 August 2015 | News  28 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

This order was modified on June 27, allowing limited classes based on guidelines issued by the Ministry of Human Resource Development for students of Lower KG to Standard V Navadgi said the state government has to consider various factors before allowing online education and it cannot rely on the examples of schools run by petitioners, which he termed as ‘Elite Schools’ . He said “Reality of the state is that some of them (students) may not have internet access. So we have to adopt an approach where this online education can be accessed by those students who are in rural areas/urban areas and are taught in vernacular languages. These are the challenges of the state.” As per statistics given to the court, around 1.45 crore students are there in the state. Around 44 lakh students are enrolled in government schools, 13.60 lakh in private aided schools and around 45 lakh students are studying in private unaided schools. Among them 58.61 lakh students are in Urban areas and 45.88 lakh students are in Rural areas. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Nataraj Rangaswamy tried to understand from the state which are the statutory powers exercised by the state to issue the ban order. Replying to it, Navadgi said “The petitions filed are premature in nature. The order of June 15 is in three parts. Firstly a meeting was convened by the Commissioner of Public Instructions, secondly on June 11 a note was issued by the Minister of Education before the order was passed. The order says that an expert committee is constituted to recommend the scientific ways for conducting online classes.” He added that “Power of the state to control over non CBSE/ICSE under the Karnataka Education Act is not challenged. Amendment has been made to the Act by which the state can regulate the fees of ICSE/CBSE. State does not interfere with the education but health of the students is important. The powers to issue such an executive order can be traced to Article 162, when it comes to public health and institutions.” On the point of ban being imposed on a hurry, Navadgi said “It is the state’s endeavour to ensure that not a single student is deprived of education. If eight students are taking online classes and two are not, then they will be left out. These are all factors which need to be considered. The students between 0-6 years is a more delicate subject which needs to be dealt with not only from the point of view of education or fundamental rights but also child psychology. How Children are going to react to online classes?. Because kindergarten is not only about schooling but more about parenting. These are formative years, whatever we teach them today will lay the foundation of their personality,” he said. As regards the point that other states are encouraging online education, Navadgi said “State of Gujarat and Kerala are having half and one hour classes. No other states are conducting online classes for state syllabus.” He added that “Article 21A is not a blanket right. It concerns safe education. State is concerned how this new method of online classes will have an effect on children.” He concluded by saying that “Circumstances in which we are placed this is an interim arrangement till we (state) comes out with final guidelines, the decision cannot be said to be unjust and arbitrary.” The court has now kept the matter for orders on Tuesday. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
