Quote from the owner of the Monmouthshire Building Society property in relation to the Physical Regeneration Grant awarded to help improve the building:-
"The successful transformation of this building would not have been possible without the assistance of the entire re-development team at Blaenau-Gwent. Despite the inevitable delays and occasional setbacks, the result has been a complete success.
Staff and customers have directly benefited from the new facilities and the effect on trade is positive. Even passers-by have called in to say how much they enjoy the new look that has been created....and that is thanks entirely to the craftsmen on the project.
In conjunction with the ongoing development of pedestrian walkways and new road surfacing, Church Street is demonstrating that new life really can be breathed back into an old town. Of course, nothing is possible without financial backing, and it's good to see that Blaenau Gwent Council is fighting for the benefit of Abertillery town, its traders and Abertillery shoppers."
