Description

Babington Meadow, in the centre of Penallt, was donated to the village by the Reverend Babington in the 18thC as part of his educational endowment.

A school was built and extended in 1834 and in 1869 a school chapel was added as an extension. The school was taken over by the County Council in 1944 and the Church in Wales adopted the Chapel as St Mary’s Church.

The School was closed in the 1980s and handed back to the Babington Trust. The Chapel closed in 2002.

The Babington Trust split itself in two to form an Education Trust to benefit village children – from the sale of the school and chapel - and the Recreation Ground Trust that was to find a use for the school playing field.

Description

Thirty years ago, a small group of volunteers had a vision: their hard work and commitment, and that of the many volunteers since, has made Bridges what it is today - a building full of character in the centre of Monmouth’s community.

Click for more information

In 1984, a small group of volunteers in Monmouth began a support group to help local people who were experiencing financial hardship or isolation. At the time, a local factory had closed, and the workers needed help to gain skills and find work. Monmouth is regarded as a wealthy area, but there were, and continue to be, people who lacked opportunities or were disadvantaged and vulnerable. There were also many elderly people who felt isolated and unsupported. The volunteers decided to widen the project – and Bridges Community Centre came into being.

Bridges was initially based in a small church hall in Monmouth, but soon outgrew it and, ironically, moved into the disused canteen of the factory that had closed. As the number of supporters grew, so did their vision ... their reach ... the range of work ... and the number of people they were helping. Bridges became a charity, staff were appointed, and its community development work touched the lives of more and more people in Monmouth. Finally, after many years of hard work and determination to fundraise for and renovate the beautiful Grade II* listed building, Drybridge House and its modern annexe, it moved into this new home in 2003.

Our vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

In the 1970s, less than a quarter of people with cancer survived. But over the last 40 years, survival has doubled – today half will survive.

Our ambition is to accelerate progress and see three-quarters of people surviving the disease within the next 20 years.

Community Connections is a not for profit organisation working in Monmouthshire. It is a Bridges Centre project.

Click for more information

The project was established in November 2011 funded by the BIG Lottery, through the AdvantAGE stream. This grant was for 5 years and we have been lucky enough to secure a further 2 years funding through the People and Places, Big Lottery Grant. This funding has employed a team of four full-time project staff who enable local volunteers to befriend others. Volunteers provide company and assistance to people who feel isolated to avoid loneliness and depression. The project aims to work with beneficiaries and volunteers across the county of Monmouthshire and improve their access to local facilities and social activities.

Community Connections has a central office which is based above the Bridges Community Shop, located in the Monmouth, High Street. The project has a steering group made up of representatives from Monmouthshire County Council (MCC), Aneurin Bevan Health Board (ABHB), Gwent Association of Voluntary Organisations (GAVO), Monmouthshire Housing Association, Care and Repair, Bridges Centre and volunteer representatives.

Description

The Royal British Legion is the UK's leading Service charity.

We provide practical care, advice and support to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families.

Click for more information

The British Legion was formed on 15 May 1921, bringing together four National Organisations of ex-Servicemen that had established themselves after the First World War.

The main purpose of the Legion was straightforward: to care for those who had suffered as a result of service in the Armed Forces during the war, whether through their own service or through that of a husband, father or son. The suffering took many forms: the effect of a war wound on a man's ability to earn a living and support his family, or a war widow's struggle to give her children an education.

Even those who had come through the war relatively unscathed struggled with employment. As a result of the war, Britain's economy plummeted and in 1921 there were two million unemployed. Over six million men had served in the war - 725,000 never returned. Of those who came back, 1.75 million had suffered some kind of disability and half of these were permanently disabled. Added to this figure were the families who depended on those who had gone to war - the wives and children, widows and orphans as well as the parents who had lost sons in the war, who often contributed to the household income.

The situation so moved Lancastrian Lance Bombardier Tom Lister, that he decided that if the government was either unable or unwilling to do anything to improve the lives of ex-Servicemen, he would do something about it himself. This eventually led to the formation of The British Legion.

When the Legion's leaders looked around them, they saw the gigantic task of looking after those who had suffered in the recent war and also the need to prevent further sacrifice by reminding the nation of the human cost of war and to work actively for peace.

By the time of the Legion's formation in 1921, the tradition of an annual Two Minute Silence in memory of the dead had been established. The first ever Poppy Appeal was held that year, with the first Poppy Day on 11 November 1921.

We were granted 'Royal' status in 1971, and extended our membership to serving members of Her Majesty's Armed Forces, as well as ex-Service personnel, in 1981. Now, anyone can become a member of The Royal British Legion. We welcome men and women of all ages, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not, to continue the work that was begun nearly 100 years ago.

Description

Monmouthshire County Councill (Welsh: Cyngor Sir Fynwy) is the governing body for the Monmouthshire principal area - one of the unitary authorities of Wales.

Click for more information

The current unitary authority was created in 1996 and covers the eastern half of the historic county.

A Monmouthshire County Council was originally formed in 1889, covering the administrative county of Monmouthshire. The council was based at Shire Hall in Newport.

In 1891 Newport became a county borough and therefore outside the jurisdiction of the county council, although the council continued to be based there. The council was abolished in 1974, being absorbed into Gwent. However, a new Monmouthshire County Council was formed in 1996 covering the principal area of Monmouthshire.

This council was a successor to the previous Monmouth District Council along with a small part of the former Blaenau Gwent District Council area, which themselves were created in 1974.

Until April 2012, the council's administrative headquarters were at the former Gwent County Hall at Croesyceiliog, Cwmbran - also outside its own jurisdiction in the neighbouring borough of Torfaen - which closed because of "concrete cancer".

The authority decided to relocate some of its headquarters functions to offices at Coleg Gwent, Usk.

In May 2010 it was reported that the council had purchased additional offices at the Wales 1 Business Park at Magor. Planning permission for a new office building at Usk, to provide the authority's central facilities, was granted in September 2011. The new county hall in Usk was opened in 2013.

Description

On 1st April 1967, Newport Borough Police and Monmouthshire Constabulary were amalgamated to form Gwent Police as a result of a government decision to reduce the number of Police Forces in England and Wales.

Click for more information

Initially, there were six operational divisions but, following national trends, the Force re-organised into a new structure in 1968, comprising of three territorial divisions and the Headquarters.

During 1996, as a result of local government re-organisation in Wales, changes to the Local Authority boundaries led to Gwent Police assuming responsibility for the Rhymney Valley, an area which was previously part of South Wales Police.

We now cover an area of 600 square miles, encompassing the five Local Authority areas of Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport and Torfaen. The Gwent Policing area is a combination of rural and urban. The road network carries large volumes of traffic including the M4 link to the South, with Gwent Police now responsible for policing the Second Severn Crossing.

In April 2015, the force was divided into the East and West Local Policing Areas (LPAs). There are ten distinct neighbourhoods across the LPAs, headed up by Inspectors. Each neighbourhood area has a team of officers including; Ward Managers, Neighbourhood Support Officers, Schools Community Police Officers, Crime and Disorder Reduction Officers and Community Support Officers.

Description

David was born in 1970 and educated at Bassaleg Comprehensive School in Newport, South Wales.

After leaving school he went to work for British Steel and joined the Territorial Army, serving for 18 months as a Gunner with 104 Air Defence Regiment at Raglan Barracks Newport. He left to spend several years abroad mainly in Australia where he had various jobs, including as a nightclub promoter, tobacco picker and ‘rickshaw driver’.

Returning to the UK, he gained an HGV licence and spent several years as a continental lorry driver before stepping in to manage the family haulage business.

Click for more information

In 1999, he helped to set up and run the anti-Welsh Assembly campaign. When the Assembly was established he stood for Monmouth on a platform of being against the whole principle of devolution, promising to oppose further powers and standing for the Union. He was the only Conservative elected to any constituency and in the 2003 election he gained the biggest majority of any Assembly Member from any party. In 2005, he was first elected as the Member of Parliament for Monmouth.

David speaks fluent Welsh after learning the language from scratch. He was awarded the accolade of Welsh Speaker of the Year and was the first AM to address the Welsh Language Society, Cymdeithas Yr Iaith Gymraeg, in Welsh.

In June 2010, David was elected chairman of the Welsh Affairs Committee. He was re-elected to serve a second term in June 2015. He is a former member of the Home Affairs Committee and served for nine years as a Special Constable with the British Transport Police. He is an advocate of tough measures to deal with criminality.

In January 2012, the Prime Minister announced David's appointment as a representative of the UK delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

David took a prominent role in the Vote Leave campaign for the EU Referendum on 23 June 2016 and is a vocal supporter of Brexit. A keen sportsman, he has fought in several charity boxing matches as 'The Tory Tornado' and is a former President of the Welsh Amateur Boxing Association. A one time fanatical surfer, he can also still be found at Rest Bay in Porthcawl or Llantwit Major although he admits that family commitments have restricted the opportunities to get into the water!

David married his long term Hungarian girlfriend Aliz in October 2003. They live in Monmouth with their three children.

We are as fun and informal as we can be, believing that our walks should be for the enjoyment of the landscape and each other’s company, rather than simply clocking up miles. We are fully compliant with Health, Safety and Public Liability Insurance requirements. All of our walks are guided by trained Walk Leaders and there is a Qualified First Aider on each walk.

Most of our walks take place on second Saturday of each month and most walks start and finish in Monmouth. We also venture further afield, using public transport or car-sharing to a start point for circular walks in the local area. Dogs are welcome on our walks; we simply ask that they are under control whenever there is livestock present.

We have been fully accredited members of the National Walkers Are Welcome Towns Network since 2012.

Description

The Shire Hall in Agincourt Square, Monmouth, Wales, is a prominent Grade I listed building in the town centre. Built in 1724, the Shire Hall was formerly the centre for the Assize Courts and Quarter Sessions for Monmouthshire. In 1839/40, the court was the location of the trial of the Chartist leader John Frost and others for high treason for their part in the Newport Rising. The Shire Hall is owned by Monmouthshire County Council and has audiovisual guides for visitors to Courtroom 1. It is currently used as a Tourist Information Centre and as the offices for Monmouth Town Council, and is open to the public in part.

Click for more information

Shire Hall is a former Court of Assizes and Quarter Sessions in the centre of Monmouth, South Wales. It is a Grade I listed, classically designed building in Agincourt Square at the top of Monnow Street.

In 2011, the entire building was sympathetically refurbished to provide a modern facility which can accommodate Weddings, business meetings, Conferences, celebrations and exhibitions. All of this has been done whilst maintaining the integrity of this historically and architecturally important building. You will feel that you are in a modern, attractive space but will be constantly aware of the vast heritage that The Shire Hall offers.

The large rooms have also become an important part of Monmouth’s vibrant local community and hosts the local youth theatre group, various types of dance lessons, The Wye Valley artists and the Wyedean Embroiderers to name but a few.

Shire Hall was the scene of one of the most significant trials in British history when, in 1839/40, John Frost and other Chartists were tried for their involvement in the Chartist Riots in Newport. Courtroom 1 has been fully restored to 1840s standards and is fully interactive, allowing visitors to sit in the Judge’s chair and go down to the holding cells to experience first-hand the unpleasant conditions prisoners of the day had been subjected to.

Monmouth Town Council still resides at The Shire Hall and meets every Monday in the Old Council Chamber. The Mayor’s Parlour provides an important Civic Meeting place and the cobbles at the front of the building accommodate important Civic Functions such as Freedom Parades.

An important part of the restoration was the installation of a lift to all floors allowing everyone unrestricted access to every part of the building.Visitor information is available from reception within the beautiful glass entrance where you can find maps, books, gifts and souvenirs.

The School’s Heart – our Vision and Values.

The school has built its practice and provision on the vision and belief of ‘Learning to Lead our Lives’. ‘Learning to Lead our Lives’ is about young people becoming independent, self-aware and resilient.

Click for more information

We have created a learning environment where every individual is able to develop a range of academic, vocational, technical, emotional and spiritual skills. Our approach is holistic and built around the child.

We know that confidence and self-esteem form the platform of success for every child. Recognition and celebration are fundamental to our practice. ‘Knowing every child and knowing them well’ is very important to us.

Our skills focus, with exploratory learning about ‘How’ to learn as well as ‘What’ to learn, supports every student in developing their own approaches. Our teaching is strategic and rigorous, building on students’ strengths and unique ways of learning.

Our Integrated Curriculum, the ‘spine’ of our school, allows every student to form, with their teachers, a deep and meaningful learning relationship. The ‘relationship’ and the quality of relationship is what matters.

The school works for and with its community. We have worked to create a shared understanding of how we will provide the very best nurture for all our children who are our most precious resource and our future. We know it ‘takes a village to raise a child’.

At our school we have a culture of creating the very best for every child and know that belief, values and culture drive our success. Our vision is rooted in our values. The whole school community – students, staff, governors, parents alongside the wider community created our values. They are:- Success, Independence, Respect, Security and Freedom with Independence. These values are to be found in all our work and form the framework around which learning is created within the vision.

BOYS AND GIRLS AGED 3-7

Haberdashers’ Agincourt School offers an outstanding education for the all important early years. The children are taught a full curriculum in small classes ensuring a high degree of individual tuition, in a warm and caring environment. The School is divided into a Nursery Department for 3-4 year-olds with the flexibility to offer morning, afternoon or all day sessions and an Infant Department for 4-7 year-olds.

The School opens at 8.30am and the school day runs from 9am to 3.30pm each day. There is also an after-school club from 3.30pm – 5.30pm.

BOYS AGED 7-11 WITH BOARDING FROM 9

The Grange provides the friendliness and close pastoral care of a small school with the outstanding resources of the senior school. An excellent well-rounded education serves as a foundation for future achievement. Boys gain experience in a wide range of subjects and the curriculum is supplemented by a vibrant extra-curricular programme. Before and after-school facilities are available offering care from 8am to 6pm.

The school day runs from 8.35am to 3.55pm, with optional after-school activities until 5.15pm and after-school club until 6.00pm. A full programme of extra-curricular activities, (including music, sport, art, chess, etc), is arranged during lunch hours and after school.

GIRLS AGED 7-11 WITH BOARDING FROM 7

As the preparatory department to Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls, Inglefield House combines the friendliness and close pastoral care of a small school, with the outstanding physical and teaching resources of a large school. A full curriculum includes subjects taught for the most part by the class teacher, but music, physical education and science are taught by specialists.

The school hours are from 8.40am to 4.00pm with lunch eaten between 12noon – 12.30pm. There is after-school club from 4.00pm to 6.00pm.

BOYS AGED 11-18

Monmouth School provides outstanding opportunities for boys who enter the senior school as day pupils or boarders at age 11, 13 or into the VI Form. The School is nationally renowned for its sporting and musical achievements as well as its high academic standards. Integral to the richness of life at the School is its boarding community, with a full programme of after-school and weekend activities. Boys take full advantage of the superb facilities and participate in a large number of extra-curricular activities as well as a range of national and international trips every year.

School hours are 8.35am to 3.55pm. The School timetable contains 45 periods in a week, eight each weekday and five on Saturday. There is a full programme of over 60 extra-curricular activities (including music, drama, clubs, societies, etc) during lunchtimes, after school and weekends, as well as an extensive range of boarders’ activities which, in most cases, are organised with HMSG.

GIRLS AGED 11-18

HMSG offers exceptional opportunities to day girls or boarders who enter the school at age 11, 13 or into the Sixth Form. The School has excellent facilities and enjoys an outstanding academic reputation. It is also justifiably proud of its national and international sporting and musical achievements. Boarding enhances the broad educational experience offered and is a vital, thriving element of school life where great care is given to all aspects of its provision and to the full integration of boarders and day girls. Pastoral care involves a strong network of staff and pupils offering support and guidance to the girls.

The school day is 8.40am to 4.00pm and there is provision for an Extended Day, when girls can stay until 5.30pm or until 6.15pm. The later time would include supper with the boarders. Full Day Boarding is available to girls from Years 6 to 11. This facility has to be booked at the beginning of term and should be a regular commitment. The girls are treated as a boarder and have a dedicated work area and a reserved bed for an overnight board. Full day boarders can be picked up at 6.15pm after supper, 8.15pm after prep (7.15pm if in School House), or 9pm after activities.

Inspire Discover Believe

The school is broadly divided into three groups; Lower School, Middle School and Upper School.

However, lessons are also taught vertically, meaning that should your child be particularly gifted or interested in particular subjects they are allowed to develop their talents without limit.

Click for more information

For instance, you will frequently see a child of 7 with a high reading age enjoying a lesson alongside 10 year olds. This also means that should your child be ‘struggling’ in another area it would not feel odd to consolidate a skill alongside younger learners.

There is a timetable to enable the week to encompass all the different subjects but often a topic is best learnt by immersion for whole days at a time.

We cover a broad range of subjects in addition to the core curriculum. In our philosophy lessons children are encouraged to expand their thoughts and ideas and verbal reasoning demonstrates their ability to think around a topic.

We have an outstanding reputation for language, communication, music and drama. Native speakers teach Spanish, Welsh and French. All children are encouraged to learn a musical instrument and there is a strong school choir which frequently performs in public. Every child is encouraged to perform and speak on the stage and plays are often written by the children themselves.

The school stands on 6 acres of playing fields, wild flower meadows and woodland. The children play ball games such as rounders, netball, hockey and football. In winter we tend concentrate on swimming and in summer on tennis and athletics. We have recently introduced a weekly archery lesson which is very popular.

Description

The club is run by a small, but dedicated, committee of volunteers, and we are always on the look out for more people to get involved.

Unlike big clubs we have no rich benefactors so we make our money through our football ‘products’ and experiences i.e. running junior teams, soccer schools, charging gate money to watch the first team, fund raising, sponsorship, and lotteries.

We also run a bar, sell advertising in our programme, around the ground and have a beneficial partnership with several local companies.

The course demands a wide range of shots and each hole has been designed to challenge each aspect of the golfer’s game.

The Hendre House, originally a hunting lodge (or ‘box’ as it was called) dates back over three hundred years. It was in the ownership of the Rolls family from 1767 until 1987.

The Rolls family enlarged the old house in several stages over the following decades using three famous architects, starting with George Vaughan Maddox who rebuilt parts of the south wing in 1830.

He was followed by Thomas Henry Wyatt who continued the enlargement of the south wing both to the east and to the west during the period 1837 and 1858. In 1872 he pulled down the old stables and built the present Coach House and loose boxes which for that period were very modern and forward looking. Also at this time the centre of the present house, being the Billiard Room, Smoking Room and Dining Room, were added.

The third architect was Aston Webb, well known for his work on Buckingham Palace, who added the great cedar Library wing in 1896.Many famous people were entertained here during this latter period including the Duke and Duchess of York who later became King George V and Queen Mary.

In 1910, the most famous son of the Rolls family, Charles Stewart Rolls was killed in a flying accident.

Description

On 23rd May 1873, Monmouth Rugby Club was formed, making the club one of the oldest rugby clubs in Wales. The game came to be played in the town through a master at Monmouth Boys School and it was a combination of older school boys and town players who initially established the Club. We continue to play both English and Welsh clubs, with most away fixtures within 40 minutes’ drive of Monmouth. The game of rugby is almost unique amongst sports, for the camaraderie and goodwill that it fosters.

Monmouth RFC Today

As the club has grown over the past few years, it has still managed to maintain the same ethos. The prime focus of the Club is player enjoyment, coupled with rugby skill, development and teamwork for players of all ages. Social skill development is also a key factor - learnt through camaraderie on the field and friendships off the field of play. New members and players are always welcome. We hope to see you at our Clubhouse headquarters, at Chippenhamgate Street, Monmouth, where you are sure to receive a warm welcome.
