Helen from Gilwern Roots

Helen from Gilwern Roots talks about how Our Monmouthshire is giving her a space to connect with others, share best practice and why she is encouraging other community groups to sign up to Our Monmouthshire today.

She organises a small group of volunteers that work to support and promote community in Gilwern. Amongst their efforts to promote a neighbourhood community, they: 

  • organise a weekly community cafe in the village at Gilwern Community Center and Library.
  • run village wide litter picks.
  • host an annual free community festival called Gilfest.

The group has become inspired to use Our Monmouthshire as an online community hub that encompasses local events, group and businesses to create a brand for the village that enhances the area for everyone.
