Following he closing of the Priory House Company’s Food Hall the first meeting of the St Mary’s Priory Coordinating Committee was held tonight to look at future plans.


The Committee agreed to allow volunteers from the Church to provide Tea, Coffee and cakes on Market Day in the Food Hall from October 24th for an initial  period of three months.

The seven person committee chaired by Canon Mark Soady has two representatives each from the PCC, The Priory Trustees and The Priory Development Trust.

Following the meeting Fr Mark said

While it would not be right to give  a running commentary on our talks, it is fair to say that we are looking at some exciting possibilities for the use of the building that will benefit the wider community.

Proceeds from this evening go to help restore St Peter’s Church, Llanwenarth – one of the four Churches in Fr Mark’s Incumbency. St Peter’s Church is a small rural church situated in a stunning location in the Usk valley about a mile outside Abergavenny. The structure of the church is at present causing us some concern as the ringing chamber in the tower was declared unsafe in March 2014 and has been stabilised with internal scaffolding which enables us to keep the church open for worship.The nave and chancel roofs are also deteriorating badly; the lead guttering is failing and the stone slates are falling off. Safety fences have been erected. The PCC is in the process of applying for funding to repair and improve the church.
