ABERGAVENNY’S double Olympic medal winner Becky James unveiled a community information screen in her home town this morning.

The cyclist was joined by Monmouthshire Council chairman Jim Higginson and the mayor of Abergavenny, councillor Chris Woodhouse on High Street near the market building.

The switching on of Abergavenny’s digital information screen is believed to be the first time a local authority in Wales has used such a medium.

It will improve the ability of the county council to communicate directly with communities and provide county-wide and local news.
