All people interested in maintaining and broadening the scope of the Pontypool Settlement as a fully functional base for adult and community in mid and north Torfaen, might like to know that after the recent publicity, a protest meeting is to be held at Trosnant House (by the Settlement) on Tuesday August 19, 10am.

We wish to strongly reinforce to Torfaen county borough council that we simply disagree with their council offices being set up on the upper floor of the centre, thus seriously diminishing the activities and facilities that it has always delivered so well – as well as causing a great deal of unnecessary wastage and ‘over the top’ refurbishment.

This ‘cut back’ affects the health, welfare and progression in life for so many Torfaen residents. Please try to attend.

C Richards, Pontnewydd, Cwmbran
