The building, which was subject to two separate arson attacks during its construction, will be available as a community venue for birthday parties, wakes, family gatherings, meetings, events, training and local community group meetings from September, subject to Covid-19 regulations.

Barry Town Council concluded their post by asking those who would like to register their interest in a tentative booking for the autumn onwards to contact
