by Sam Easterbrook | 22nd Dec 2016

Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas!

As 2016 winds down we’d like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy and peaceful holiday season.

We’ve even made you card!

Promo Xmas Card for opening hours article

That’s Bob the Reindeer and our super talented EVS volunteer Auguste created him as well as the card.

Alongside spreading festive cheer in this post, we’re taking the opportunity to share our opening times over the Christmas period. As you may know we have a range of different services, projects, helplines and buildings that fall under the ProMo-Cymru umbrella, so we thought we’d collate them all in one handy place.

Christmas Opening Hours

EVI – Ebbw Vale Institute

EVI closes Friday 23rd December 5pm and is opening 28th, 29th, 30th December (10am-3pm). Then it’s back to normal on Tuesday 3rd January.

Helplines: Meic & FamilyPoint Cymru

The Meic helpline will continue to be open over the Christmas period from 8am till midnight everyday including Christmas Day.

FamilyPoint Cymru will extend its opening hours and will be available everyday 9am – 5pm via

The offices

Harrowby Street, that’s Core Services & Management and Royal Stuart Workshops – Communications, Media & Arts and Social Action – closes on the afternoon of Friday 23rd December and will reopen on Tuesday 3rd January.

So our helplines will remain open and there will also be regular content going up on FamilyPoint over the festive period. We’ve dusted off the old 12 Blogs of Christmas idea. We will be publishing a series of articles covering mental health, things to do, money, recipes, physical health and much more for families in Wales. TheSprout will also have fresh content on it between Christmas and New Year. The internet never sleeps and neither do our sub-editors.

Have a wonderful break and see you in 2017!
