Congratulations to everyone involved in restoring life to one of Pontypool's key buildings at the Clarence Corner roundabout.

Not only is it a welcome sight at one of the town's main entrances but it provides affordable rented accommodation, and gave the opportunity for trainees to get on the job experience which will help them gain permanent employment.

This is an example of the type of co-operation between governments and local business we all applaud and want to see more of in order to bring life back into our sad and empty towns.
