Grants Presentation Evening 

Thank you to everyone who attended our Grants Presentation evening on Thursday 14th December. It was lovely to see so many groups represented and hear about the wonderful work you are doing in our community. 


Remembrance Sunday-Cwmbran Memorial Gardens

I was extremely honoured to lay a wreath on behalf of the people of Croesyceiliog and Llanyrafon at Cwmbran Memorial Gardens on Remembrance Sunday. Once again, the ceremony was well attended with crowds following the parade and participating in the moving Remembrance service.
Thank you to everyone involved. Cllr Sean O'Dobhain Chair

The Coffee Bar 

The Coffee Bar re-opened on 1st September 2015 and is run by Evolve, a Social Enterprise Company.  Situated at the rear of the building with a great view of the playing fields it is very handy for members of public coming to the site for sport, the children's play area, dog walking,  and Centre users.  As well as the Opening Times below the Coffee Bar will be open for sporting events.

Opening Times: 

Monday - Friday 8.00am - 4.00pm  

Saturday 10.00am - 4.00pm / Sunday 9.00am - 3.00pm

Japanese Knotweed

The Council has set a target to make the Croesyceiliog & Llanyrafon area a Japanese Knotweed free area within 5 years. We are asking residents to advise us of any local areas where the knotweed is growing. Action to control the spread of this invasive weed takes place annually in the autumn.


You may have noticed new benches as the Council is gradually replacing old benches in the area.
