The Community Council Offices at Mitre Street, Abertillery are going to be closed until further notice because of the current national situation and the government advice for people to work from home where possible.

 The Community Council can still be contacted be either email: clerk.alcc@gmail.com or on 07743 631066. 

During the coming days and weeks it important that people have access to reliable and official information. We all hear the national news but that has local impacts, and that is where the questions are going to arise from. 

The best source of information will be the Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council website and the update page. It is being updated on a regular  basis.
