A community centre in Pontypridd is set to reopen after several years following an extensive refurbishment,
Graig Community Centre reopens its doors at the end of April following an extensive refurbishment designed to make it a welcoming and accessible place for all, the town council said.
The running of Graig Community Centre was taken over by Pontypridd Town Council in January when it signed a  21-year lease for the building.
The community centre has been closed for several years and the town council plans to transform its future use with a wide-range of community-focused activities in keeping with Pontypridd Town Council’s vision to improve the lives, health, and well-being of everyone who lives and works in Pontypridd.
The town council secured funding from the UK Government Shared Prosperity Fund – RCT Community Fund to carry out key renovations to the building.
A special series of events organised by the town council will take place to mark the reopening including a free family community event.
Community Partnership organisations are invited to view the renovated facilities on offer at an open day on Thursday, April 25,  between 10am and 1pm.
On Saturday, April 27, a free family fun day is taking place at the centre with a host of activities on offer for everyone. Pontypridd radio station GTFM will be providing entertainment and broadcasting from the event and Growing Space Pontypridd will be putting on nature-based activities, encouraging learning through play. Sports, family games, and refreshments will also be on offer.
Graig Community Centre’s family day takes place from 10am to 1pm and entrance is free.
A volunteer drop-in session is taking place from 4pm to 6pm on Monday, April 29, and on Saturday, May 9, a wellbeing morning will take place from 11am until 1pm in partnership with RCT Together and Interlink.
Graig Community Centre will be open for bookings from May onwards and bookings can be made by contacting Pontypridd Town Council. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
