A Nation Remembers....
       Chepstow Town Council as part of the national commemorations to the fallen of The Great                    War has installed a Memorial Bench in Hollins Garden, Bridge Street.

It is hoped that the bench will be somewhere for the community to quietly reflect on the sacrifice made by so many.  

Chepstow Town Council has signed up to
'Give Dog Fouling The Red Card'.
Dog Waste bags and a list of the Dog Waste Bins are available from the
Town Council Offices during office hours.
