About the RVHA

We are a team of local volunteers who improve, promote and provide community facilities in our village of Raglan, Monmouthshire.

Rural communities like ours can struggle when it comes to much-needed funding and resources, so we help to get your voice heard.

We’re proud of our community and we want it to prosper, now and in the future. This means a thriving social scene and easy access to helpful services. The RVHA is about bringing our individual and group efforts together.

History

The group was originally established in 1974 to improve access to recreation and leisure activities for people living in and around Raglan. Over the years we’ve run the Jefferies Hall and invested in the building of the infant and junior schools to provide a shared community space. Since 2014 we have been working with our community and partners to identify a long-term strategy for Raglan’s services and facilities.

Our existing volunteers stepped down at our May AGM and no new volunteers came forward to replace them, so we are in need of community-minded people to drive forward community facilities in Raglan.

If no new volunteers are found, sadly Raglan’s community facilities are at risk.
