Menter Aberystwyth is a regeneration partnership for Aberystwyth and its surrounding area. Community Regeneration builds on the ethos of community and simply means that the people living in a defined area take direct actions to address issues affecting their community rather than have solutions imposed upon them.
Menter Aberystwyth has evolved from initial discussions with a small group of partners who shared a commitment to improve things in the town. In March 2004 Menter Aberystwyth was officially established and it was registered as a Company Limited by Guarantee.
This means that the running and finances of Menter Aberystwyth are completely transparent, with annual accounts submitted to Companies House. There are currently 9 Board Members, who are involved on an entirely voluntary basis, and who each have a commitment in developing and promoting Aberystwyth.
Applications are now open for this year’s Gwobrau Cyntaf Aber First Awards!
