Yesterday was the Mayor's Civic Service and he chose to celebrate local volunteers and groups with many being in attendance at the service. All the best to Cllr Roden for his Mayoral year.

It was also our new Town Clerk's first opportunity to wear her robes and wig. I'm sure we can all agree that Dee looks brilliant even with the lovely hot sunshine making it a very warm day ☀

Monmouth Town Council has recently bought the second decommissioned telephone box at the side of the Shire Hall.  We are now looking for ideas on how to use the box. 

There are old telephone boxes being used for all sorts across the country; they are brought to life as libraries, herb gardens, art galleries, even a nightclub.  What would you like this box in Monmouth to be?

If you have an idea how you would like to see the phone box used, please contact the office either by e-mail ( or phone (01600 715662) and we will make put the best options to a public vote.  We look forward to hearing your ideas to make this a phone box a great asset to the town and its residents wellbeing.

This group will meet again in July to develop a plan of action and to consolidate the structure of ACE Monmouth.
