Community Hubs are gearing up to reopen their doors to the public from Monday 7th September in Caldicot, Chepstow, Monmouth and Usk. Measures have been put into place to ensure everyone’s safety and the council’s teams are looking forward to welcoming people back for face-to-face council service enquiries. Residents will also be able to collect their recycling bags and boxes from the hubs again.
Initially the opening days will be as follows: Monmouth Community Hub will be open on Wednesdays and Thursdays; Chepstow Community Hub on Thursdays and Fridays; Usk Community Hub will open its doors on Mondays and Wednesdays; Every Tuesday Caldicot Community Hub will be open.
Monmouthshire’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for Community Hubs, Councillor Paul Jordan said: “We’re very pleased to be able to announce the reopening of these hubs. They play such an important role in the community, especially for residents who are not online and prefer face-to-face contact for council services. The teams at the hubs have been working hard to ensure that everything has been put into place to make visits to the centres as safe as possible.
“Abergavenny Community Hub will also be opening soon. The redevelopment of the Town Hall is nearing completion and once opened it will be the perfect location for the town’s community hub. Residents will be able to stop by for council services and for a ‘request and collect’ library service. It will be at the heart of the community in every sense.”
The council is also trialling reopening public access computers at the hubs in Chepstow, Monmouth and Usk. Initially, this will be a reduced service with bookable slots available on Saturday mornings. In addition, residents will be able to use the libraries’ ‘request and collect’ service to get books, until the they able to offer browsing facilities once again.
