Congratulations to our Christmas Window Competition winners - 1st Prize Tredegar Arms Hotel, 2nd Prize Gwynn's Opticians and 3rd Prize Air Salon. Thank you to all the businesses who participated, the displays this year were once again fantastic.




Season’s Greetings from everyone here at Tredegar Town Council: on behalf of the Mayor and Members - sending very best wishes to the community of Tredegar .

May I also take the opportunity to extend sincere thanks to everyone who participated in the Christmas Lights Switch-on Event on Friday, 24th November, 2023 not only to our Elected Members and visitors to the town, but a very “Special Thank You” to our loyal  supporters, to whom we are sincerely grateful:

To:  Funfair Hire Wales ~  J Cotton Audio ~ Santa Claus ~ Tredegar Operatic Society ~

Tredegar  Orpheus  Male  Voice  Choir  ~  Compére, Town  Centre  Manager,  and

S. & M. Overton  ~  Thomas  Waste  Management  ~  JME  Security  and Events ~

Tredegar  Library ~ Aneurin  Leisure Trust Staff ~ Wayne Hodgins ~ The  Fryery ~

St. John Ambulance ~ Gwent Police - Tredegar Branch ~ South Wales Fire Service

~ Dinky Donuts ~ Fresh Active ~ The Mex.Co.   ~   and to all our stallholders

Town Council appreciate and offer thanks to the Pen Bryn Oer Community Fund for their generous contribution to activities undertaken at the switching on of the Christmas Lights display, as it is always the foremost consideration of Members as to how best utilise, and protect, public monies whilst continuing to be able to provide festive fun!

It is a wonderful time of year and this event is an ideal opportunity for families to come   together to enjoy festive music and activities around the Town Clock.  The Town  Council prides itself in bringing a little Christmas cheer to everyone in Tredegar and very much hope that this will encourage people into our town centre.

The decision to provide the catenary wires to the Town Clock itself, rather than the  canopy around The Circle, is due to the regeneration to the buildings and the loss of the previous infrastructure required.  Town Council has written to the property owners throughout The Circle to ascertain if the appropriate anchor bolts can be replaced and - if such permission is agreed - Town Council very much hope to reinstate the lighting canopy in the future, as this has always been well-received and greatly admired.

Taking this opportunity to wish you a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year 2024!

With very best wishes,

Clare Aherne

Town Clerk
