St Thomas’ Church Hall has been redeveloped and recently re-opened as Ty Price – St Thomas’ Community Hall.

The new hall, named after former vicar of Overmonnow Reverend Norman Price underwent a £500,000 make-over after St Thomas’ Church, who owns the hall, decided it was in dire need of an upgrade.

The money was used to develop the impressive new venue, designed by Richard Hardwicke, which has been refurbished and extended. There are now four rooms including the enlarged main hall, an improved entrance, new toilets and modern facilities.

Now a new interpretation board has been fitted and unveiled, telling the story of the Overmonnow area from pre-medieval times to the present day.

It was designed by David Evans of Platform One but includes text and photos from many contributors.

Steve Martin Ty Price Coordinator said:?“It is the only such board on the Overmonnow side of the town despite the rich history of the community. The hall committee hope that local residents and visitors to the town will enjoy seeing it.”
