Usk’s Community Hub in Maryport Street will host a St David’s Day country market on Wednesday 1st March and all money raised will support people with sight loss.  The event will run from 9.30am to 12noon.

Market stalls will sell cakes, jam, preserves, flowers and plants as well as tea, coffee and freshly-made Welsh cakes.  Handmade crocheted daffodil brooches will also be on sale.

In addition, a representative from RNIB Cymru will offer advice for people with sight loss to use laptops, tablets, smartphones and e-readers and conduct a demonstration of associated products.

Councillor Bob Greenland, Monmouthshire’s cabinet member with responsibility for the county’s community hubs said: “Usk’s St David’s Day country market is a great example of how the council’s five hubs can bring people together to benefit a good cause and support local community activity.”
