Speaking about the opening of the hub,Cllr Paul Jordan said: “We are delighted to be able to open this service. Our hubs play a vital role in the community, not least for those without internet access, and we know people will look forward to being able to come in for their essential face-to-face enquiries, their recycling bags and to use the ‘Request and Collect’ library service.”

In addition to the usual council services, the Gwent Police service enquiries desk will also be located at the hub.

“The new hub is now in the best location possible, right above Abergavenny’s thriving indoor market,” said Cllr Phil Murphy. “I believe this will be a real asset to the town and to its people. It’s fabulous to be able to welcome residents to discuss council services with our team while out and about on their regular shopping trips into town."
