Tŷ Gwydr | Greenhouse (TŷGG) is an independent, community-owned social enterprise (a not-for-profit company limited by guarantees) based in Bangor, Gwynedd. TŷGG aims to support and promote community activities. We are committed to self-help, health, arts and environmental and economic sustainability.
Since Greenhouse started in 1982 as the first formal Networking Centre in the UK., many community groups, organisations and small local business have benefited from our facilities. Included in these are environmental groups such as BTCV and Gwynedd Cycle Routes, education projects such as the EFL classes run by Coleg Menai, health projects such as Mental Health User’s Forum, Substance Misuse Service and Family Planning Association, campaigning groups such as Lesbian Line and Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg, meditation groups, therapists offering physiotherapy and massage, and arts projects such as Syrcas Circus.
Nowadays TŷGG operates as a Seminar, Community, Networking and Startup Hub that supports third sector organisations, charities, independent local community groups as well as freelancers, small business, solo and micro entrepreneurs. The services offered range from the hire of affordable event spaces, meeting rooms, offices and coworking spaces. Moreover TŷGG has support services available for charities, start-ups and businesses.
We have a board of three unpaid directors who meet quarterly to make major decisions on behalf of the Greenhouse. These are elected each year at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
A managing director oversees the operations of the organisation, supported by a paid administrator, that deals with the daily enquiries and bookkeeping tasks.
