Two Pembrokeshire projects are to benefit from more than £120,000 of Welsh Government funding aimed at improving buildings used by the local community.
Maenclochog Community Hall will receive £104,55 from the government's community facilities and activities programme to develop the outdoor space, to provide an extended car park, a soft play area, a sensory garden and recycling centre.
Hall Co-ordinator Sian Rees said the plans together with success of the extension completed 18 months ago meant the hall needed more car parking.
"It's really good and the community are right behind us. It's about improving and capitalising on the extension, which is finished and open and going well."
The work is due to begin in April, with local businesses involved ensuring the money is "ploughed back into the local community."
The new facilities are expected to take around two months to finish with a launch pencilled in for early summer.
Pennar Robins AFC will receive £19,002 to upgrade the heating and showering facilities and install a disabled toilet at the Bush Camp playing fields.
Manager Jimmy Probert said the work would be a "major boost" to the club as its resources had been drained over the last few years.
