The Beeches Village
The name of the proposed development site of the former Miners’ Hospital has been chosen by a Caerphilly resident. 

United Welsh and Lovell are pleased to announce ‘The Beeches Village’ or ‘Pentref y Ffawydd’ has been selected from all the entries as the winning name for the development site.  ‘The Beeches Village’ was suggested by Mrs Grant of Hendredenny.  The name encapsulates the importance of the historical Beeches hospital by making it the focal point of the village community. 

The much loved Beeches building will be retained, re-furbished and reused as a multi-functional community facility, a real asset for all of the community run by The Caerphilly Miners Community Centre Management Committee.


The competition was run in February this year alongside public consultation events which offered the local community the chance to have their say in shaping the proposed site.  Local residents and community members were given the chance to influence decisions made by the partnership including the chance to name the development.  The development name will stand alone, road names will be decided in consultation with the local authority and post office.

 Mrs Grant who has been awarded Ł100 John Lewis Vouchers for suggesting the winning name said: “I felt that the name Beeches should stay because of the history and village because it is nice to have a collective name for the community, plus it is a bit different. It fits”

Gareth Davies, Head of Development at United Welsh said: “The partnership working on this project has the key objective of delivering homes for all whilst creating a fully cohesive community.  By honouring the history of the site and incorporating it into the proposed development name Mrs Grant has identified a name that will represent both the past and the future of this community.”

Kate Rees, Regional Sales Manager, Lovell Wales and South West, said: “We were delighted to be asked to partner with United Welsh and participate in the programme of community engagement.  The idea of involving the local community in naming the development is an excellent one and we were thrilled with the number of entries.  We look forward to playing our part in the future development of The Beeches Village in the coming weeks and months.”
