After many months of hard work by staff and volunteers, Caldicot’s TogetherWORKS community space celebrated its official opening on Wednesday 8thSeptember. TogetherWORKS, which was named following a poll completed by local residents, is now open Monday to Thursday, 9am to 5pm, and Fridays from 9am to 4.30pm.
Residents of Caldicot gathered along Woodstock Way to celebrate the event, joined by organisations including MHA, Dad’sCan Cymru , GAVO, Timebanking UK, Woman’s Aid, Benthyg Cymru, Bridges, RSPCA Cymru, U3A Craft Group, The Lions, Mind Monmouthshire, Communities for Work +, and Caldicot Town Team.
Councillor Lisa Dymock, Monmouthshire County Council’s cabinet member for Community Wellbeing said: “TogetherWORKS has received a tremendous amount of support from the local community, both in Caldicot and the wider Severnside area. I’d like to thank all those who have helped to bring this project to fruition. Were it not for the efforts of the team and the volunteers who have given of their time this could not have happened. I would encourage anyone who lives in the area to pop along and make use of TogetherWORKS, be it for seeking out contacts for support, to make new friends, or to learn new skills. The Library of Things, the Maker’s Space and the Community Fridge are just a few of the many reasons to visit. TogetherWORKS has been, and will continue to be, shaped by the community and its needs. Based on the fantastic turn out for its official opening, I have no doubt that TogetherWORKS will be a popular addition to the town and to the wider Severnside areaand its community.”
