Bargoed Town Council are fortunate to benefit from the support of a few volunteers who help the Council deliver several community activities and well-being events such as maintaining the Community Orchard on the Park Estate, caring for the food growing area and fruit trees in Yew Street/Cwrt Coch Street Park in Aberbargoed; putting out remembrance poppy displays; supporting with community gardening initiatives and a variety of other small scale projects across the four ward areas.

If you would be interested in becoming involved in volunteering activities at Bargoed Town Council please don’t hesitate to contact one of the staff or town councillors.
