Crickhowell’s Clarence Hall has received nearly £300 from the Waitrose Community Matters Scheme.  Customers voted for it using green tokens given to them when checking out at the Waitrose store in Abergavenny and the supermarket chain converted the tokens into cash.   The money will be used as part of an upgrade of the Hall’s audio/visual system used for events, concerts and the Crickhowell Cozy Cinema.  Clarence Hall Chairman, Dean Christy, said: “We are very grateful to Waitrose and the customers who voted for us.  Upgrading the audio system is a vital part in making the Hall fit for the modern age and this is a great start.”

The donation comes as the Clarence Hall Trust prepares to launch a fund for the refurbishment of the Hall.  We will be applying for grants for the major part of the work but, in the meantime, if anyone wants to make a donation then they can do so by contacting us at
