Blaina Institute.Could anyone from Blaina or elsewhere confirm whether or not the Institute/Library in Blaina is closing as it has been widely suggested that as long as twelve months ago the decision to close it was made.
If it is true i think it is a bitter blow to the people of that area (and the Ebbw fach valley as a whole) they will have nothing left there.
I for one would gladly see the new car park in Abertillery not be built if it could save a place that is a big part of the Blaina/Nantyglo community.
The mind boggles as to how the powers that be think a replacement car park is more important than the Blaina Institute and all the facillities it gives to the public.
Call it rumour or whatever word you wish to but the Council ( or those well placed as friends of the council ) could quite easily confirm it or quash the rumour and save a lot of Blaina/Nantyglo people worrying.
