The Community Building is an ideal venue where your club, group or society can hold regular meetings or host conferences and, when used with the surrounding parkland, is just right for fetes, children’s parties, demonstrations, dog shows, craft fayres and country pursuits. The Centre is also very well placed for providing a base for field studies, educational workshops and projects linked to the environment and healthy living.

riverThe Centre has ample parking and is in a delightful rural setting with easy and accessible walks along the towpath or river and is adjacent to the Sustrans National Cycleway 43 and St Illtyd’s Way long distance footpath.

Please contact us if you would like to hire the Building or discuss how we can help you plan your event or project. riverside.pontardawe@gmail.com
