All council managed community centres and the MUGA at Rivermead re-open from 2 August 2021.
Public health risks posed by Covid-19 are still very real and guidance from Welsh Government on restrictions is continually being reviewed and updated.
Community centres, village halls, and other multi-use community facilities support a wide range of local activities and groups.
However, their communal nature also makes them places that are vulnerable to the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19). The threat from coronavirus has not gone away and only by all of us acting responsibly will we be able to keep our residents and communities safe.
We are planning for a phased re-opening, initially to enable summer holiday play schemes and childcare and we aim to do this as quickly as is safely possible.
Four neighbourhood hubs remain open Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm for vulnerable people to access advice which cannot be provided by telephone.
These neighbourhood hubs are:
Maesglas Community Centre (west)
Pill Millennium Centre (central)
Bettws Community Centre (north)
Council managed centres
Community centres and halls in and around Newport are used by local groups and individuals.
Community centres support the delivery of activities for adults and children including fitness classes and after-school clubs. Most have catering facilities and some have a stage area, making them ideal venues for a variety of events and celebrations.
Below are the contact details for each community centre. There are also links provided to find additional information about the centre and the events taking place.
Volunteer managed centres
The following Community Centres are managed by local volunteers/groups/organisations.
It is important that the decision to re-open safely is not rushed and your management committee or board are fully aware of the responsibilities and liabilities placed upon you as a group, and potentially individually as members.
New working procedures and changes will be required to safely operate your centres and you should ensure that you are fully aware of the responsibilities placed on the management committee or board if you take the decision to re-open your centre for general use.
We have created a briefing which provides an overview and links to the relevant guidance and legislation that the local volunteers, groups and organisations need to know.
