After nearly 90 years of community life, the village hall at Aberporth hosted its final performance on Saturday. A rousing performance by Blaenporth Male Voice Choir along with a covid-restricted audience said goodbye to the hall – built in 1935 - which will be demolished next week.
Volunteers are lining up to take part in a raft of exciting community projects in Aberporth. More than 20 people turned up at a volunteer recruitment coffee morning on Saturday and all signed up to take part in projects including a community fridge, community garden and digi club plus the ongoing recycled clothes rail Dillad Dwywaith. The projects are being rolled out by Aberporth Village Hall Committee as part of its £1.1m Heart of the Community project which will see work start on the construction of a brand new village hall later this month.

It is part of the Aberporth Village Hall Committee's inspirational Heart of the Community project which aims to rebuild the local village hall and roll out several community centred schemes.
