WHERE SHALL WE GO TO NEXT?
Sharing a hot, home-cooked meal, together
About Chris & Siobhan Morgan
Siobhan has been teaching in local primary schools in Abergavenny for over a year and Chris taught in a Primary School in London for 9 months before moving to Wales in 2021.
They offer an introductory lesson free of charge and there’s no commitment needed after that, so it’s left up to you to decide whether or not you would like to continue.

On working with others:
The Trust is creating a community setting in which people are learning to feel safe and confident. Sharing this space with others releases more talents and skills in the community so that more of us achieve private ambitions and enjoy a renewed sense of purpose, health & wellbeing.
The Abergavenny Community Centre [Charitable Trust] is taking small steps on its path towards being a sustainable venture and a local resource for people to rely upon.
We are still a young organisation, and the covid years with their unique blend of opportunity and operational challenges have tested our resilience and taught us the value of consolidation and protecting vital resources for future use.
There is real strength in being small and there are challenges too. In recent months the Trust had to tap its financial reserves to replace the old school boiler and radiators which you also rallied behind, helping to fund these essential works. Thank you for making it possible.
New development at the Abergavenny Community Centre:
We are very excited to announce a funding success that will have a significant impact on reducing the Centre’s carbon footprint following grants from the Welsh Government’s Community Facilities Programme and the Community Green Energy Monmouthshire CIC and the Community Green Energy England / Wales CIC, and the generosity of members of the local community.
Our sincere thanks to those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to pull the bid together and bring a long held aspiration to life.
This investment in solar energy production is a major step for the Community Centre with it’s people-helping-people culture because not only will it make limited resources go further, it also enables us to be innovative in how we share the electricity with fellow residents – helping budgets stretch a bit further and benefiting health and wellbeing through activities and support right on our doorsteps.
** Presently, we are looking at a way to continue these sessions **
Update MAY 2022: These valuable sessions in April/May have demonstrated there is a wide need / appetite for people to have access to information, help and advice on using their laptops, tablets and phones to stay connected.
