Abandoned Valleys’ Chapel to Open as Wales’ First Community Supermarket


An abandoned chapel in Abertillery in Blaenau Gwent will reopen this summer as Wales' first community supermarket.

Trinity chapel is being restored to its former glory with a £600,000 EU grant and as a “social supermarket” will offer cut prices on regular supermarket goods to those on welfare support.

The project is a partnership between The Coalfields Regeneration Trust Wales and Blaenau Gwent Council.
