Abergavenny Town Council is proud to present an inspiring video message by Councillor Chris Holland, representing Llanwenarth Citra Ward. Born and bred in Abergavenny, Chris has been serving the local community for over three decades, and his dedication is palpable.
In the video, Chris passionately shares his vision for a more inclusive Abergavenny, highlighting his deep connection to the town and its residents. He recognises the importance of Sight Awareness, a cause that has become particularly close to his heart with the birth of his granddaughter.
Simple yet impactful changes, such as improved sign placement and considerate parking, can enhance the lives of those with visual impairments. Chris and Abergavenny Town Council are committed to making these changes a reality.
Already, Abergavenny Town Council has taken significant steps towards creating a more accessible town. They’ve launched an accessible website, improved communications, and forged strong partnerships with Sight Cymru.
However, Councillor Chris Holland emphasises that this mission cannot be accomplished in isolation. He invites local businesses to join the journey to become Sight-Friendly Organisations, fostering a more inclusive and caring community.
As a testament to his dedication, Chris is delighted to announce the inaugural Sight Cymru Sight Awareness Conference for Wales in Abergavenny. This conference promises to be a pivotal event, bringing together like-minded individuals, businesses, and organisations to collaborate and create a more accessible Abergavenny.
The conference is scheduled to take place from 10am to 4pm on 21st September at the Prior Centre in Abergavenny. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with Councillor Chris Holland, learn from his experiences, and collectively contribute to the vision of a sight-friendly Abergavenny.
Join us in supporting Councillor Chris Holland’s vision and the efforts of Abergavenny Town Council to make our town a leader in sight awareness and inclusivity.
