Tredegar Town Council proudly celebrating

our heritage, Home of Nye Bevan and the National Health Service



On continuing review of official guidelines from Central Government in relation to managing health risks associated with Covid-19, Tredegar Town Council has again taken the difficult decision NOT to hold a physical event this year in the interest of public safety and restrictions to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, but very much hope to be in a position to return to our normal celebrations in 2022.

It is with sincere regret, therefore, that Tredegar Town Council has made the decision to cancel the Bevan Festival and our Aneurin Bevan Day, here in Bedwellty House and Park, which would have marked our fourth annual event to proudly celebrate our heritage - the home of Nye Bevan and the National Health Service.

It is an honour, therefore, for Tredegar Town Council to support virtually commemorations for the National ‘Aneurin Bevan Day’ on Tuesday, 6th July, 2020.

Over the years, Tredegar Town Council recognised the efforts of Mike Morgan in raising funds to purchase, and locate, two heart defibrillators in the town centre and also recognised the efforts of Cassie and Amy, who saved the life of a resident in Tredegar Sports Centre by using their defibrillator.  Council realised that having a network of defibrillators in the town could make life saving a reality and would make Tredegar a safer place to live and visit. Defibrillators in the Community | Tredegar Town Council

Tredegar Town Council and Mike Morgan stayed in touch and, through working together, placed a further six defibrillators in the town, purchasing a defibrillator for each of the schools in Tredegar.  Whist primarily there for the safety of our young people, their location spread throughout the community will make a safer place for all.  The staff at each school were trained in their use and the equipment registered with St. John’s Ambulance First Responders, who have access to the defibrillators when called out.  Members realise what a huge difference quick access to a defibrillator makes when saving a life and, through the purchase of these defibrillators, parents would know their children are safe while at school.

Tredegar Town Council are pleased to announce they have purchased another heart defibrillator, which has been presented to the stewards at The Mountain Air, Llwynhelyg, Nantybwch, Tredegar NP22 3SD and will be located on these premises for the use of the whole community.  Stephen Irish of The Mountain Air said: "The Mountain Air are honoured that Council has purchased the defibrillator to have here and will be available during opening hours, and the public only need to phone us if out of hours, and we will bring it along."  Training has taken place, attended by fifteen members of staff, kindly provided by the Chair of Gwent Defibbers, Mike Morgan - whose continued support of Town Council is greatly appreciated as always.

The Mayor, Councillor Gaynor James added: “Tredegar is proud to be the home of the NHS as our Medical Aid Society was used as the blue print.  By rolling out a network of defibrillators, we are making sure that our town is a safe place to live, work and visit.”  Council therefore continue to publicise the location of this life saving equipment so that the whole of the community knows where to go, if one is needed, and have access to these life saving devices.’
