ABERTILLERY AND LLANHILLETH COMMUNITY COUNCIL
is your local elected Council, representing people of the local area at the grass roots level, from Swffryd in the south, through Llanhilleth, Brynithel, Aberbeeg, Six Bells, Abertillery and Cwmtillery, to Bournville in the north. Among our most important work is the funding of detached youth workers whose engagement with young people has brought about a steep fall in anti-social behaviour in the area. We have also purchased and maintain more than a dozen publicly-available life-saving defibrillators throughout the area. In addition, the Council distributes tens of thousands of pounds of grant funding each year to local community organisations. We fund local events such as Abertillery's annual Party in the Park, a Christmas concert and a St David's Day concert. We are involved in community events such as Remembrance Sunday parades, Aberfest, Springfest and Winterfest - with even more community events planned for 2023 - and we fund traditional Christmas light displays in all our communities. Our Members serve on local school governing bodies and other organisations, look after War Memorials and lease allotments, represent local people's views to organisations such as Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council
and work in partnership with many local groups and organisations, to significantly and continuously improve community well-being now and for future generations.
The council is registered with the Information Commissioners Office, Registration Ref: ZA228345
