Old town hall plan for Aberystwyth pensioners' group

An old town hall, which is being converted into a library, could also be used as a day care centre for pensioners, says a council.

The building in Aberystwyth is owned by Ceredigion council but it became redundant when the authority opened a new office in 2009.

Now the council plans to relocate Park Avenue day care centre as it occupies land earmarked for development.

Proposals are to include a kitchen and meeting rooms inside the new centre.

A Ceredigion council spokesman said a feasibility study found that the old town hall would be suitable for a library, as an area to store archives and a day centre.

The work on the building is being jointly funded by Ceredigion council and the Welsh Assembly Government.

The £950,000 project is expected to be completed by this summer.
