Welcome to the community pages.

This section of the website is dedicated to community activity. In addition to local groups and events, we have included links to Shirenewton Community Council website and relevant parts of the Monmouthshire County Council website for your convenience.

The most useful source of information about the community, events and societies (as Scouts, Clubs, Brownies, Cubs, Play groups, etc.), is the Parish Magazine. This site only publishes historical copies (download here) so we strongly recommend that you subscribe to get free delivery of current copies (10 per year).

AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators)

In 2017 there was a community initiative to provide AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) throughout the village. Funding was provided by, inter alia, the British Heart Foundation. Since 2017, Phil Moles (of the Hunstman) and one or two other community minded residents have been maintaining these AEDS at their own personal expense. Recently, Phil personally spent ~£800 to ensure that several AEDs had a firmware upgrade, 'in date' pads and new batteries.

If you'd like to assist financially, please send your donation via BACS to: Account: Shirefest Community Account; Barclays Bank; sort code: 20-60-58; account number: 73056198 with a reference of 'AED Donation'. All donations will be recorded and 'ring fenced' for AED maintance. Annual financial reports will be published.

Please check back for more AED information which will be added in the next week or so.

Village Curry nights

The village curry nights are designed for villagers to meet their friends, neighbours and fellow villagers. They take place in the Sultan (old Tredegar arms) on the penultimate (mens) and last (ladies) Thursday of the month. A monthly shout out is generally published in the village Facebook group to confirm dates and get a handle on numbers.

The format is a buffet with no allocated seating (we expect people to sit down randomly and chat). There is a small selection of curries (which Raj changes every month) at a cost of £15 per person. Name badges are provided.

There is no commitment to attend every month, turn up if you can/want to. We generally get between 20 – 30 at each evening (i.e. men and ladies) so why not give it a try. For more information, please get in touch with the webmaster.
