New Warm Hub for Church Village
A new Warm Hub is available regularly in Church Village, thanks to volunteers from St.Illtud’s Church.
There will be a Warm Hub every 1st, 3rd, and 4th Thursday of the month from 9 a.m. – 12 noon at the Ty Illtud Centre, (St Illtud's Road, Church Village, Pontypridd, CF38 1EB).
Local resident Ioan Bellin asked a question last month in Llantwit Fardre Community Council highlighting the benefits of having a Warm Hub in the community.
Plaid Cymru activist Ioan Bellin said:
"While the blame for this Westminster cost-of-living crisis lies in Downing Street, the impact means we are all feeling the pinch.
The cost of bills, fuel, and the food shop to rise – but our pay packets are not keeping up.
It is not fair that families are struggling to make ends meet while big energy companies make record profits. On a local level it is difficult to influence those large firms.
I am pleased that we will see a Warm Hub in Church Village.
I know from speaking to Plaid Cymru Councillors that represent communities like Ynysybwl and Pontypridd how these Warm Hubs helped many people in their communities last year.
The Warm Hubs did not just keep people warm, they benefited the community centres used, because they were full. Warm Hubs connected people after the pandemic and started to address loneliness in our communities.”
