St Teilo's Church, Llantilio Pertholey

The congregation at St Teilo’s Church in Llantilio Pertholey near Abergavenny were keen to upgrade their toilet facilities to make them accessible to all and make the meeting room attached to the church wheelchair accessible. Although the existing facilities had served the congregation adequately over the years, the Church Council realised that due to the growing number of wheelchair users attending worship and other activities in the church, it was time to make improvements. The Spend a Penny project aimed to raise £50,000 to complete the work, and this was achieved by the members pledging donations and fund raising and grants from various bodies including the James Pantyfedwen Foundation. 

The new facilities and a redecorated Tredillion Room were officially opened on Easer Day by Michael Davies, a wheelchair user and regular member of the congregation.
