Pentyrch Community Council bought the old Police Station from the South Wales Police in 2000 and from where all the administration and maintenance of all Council property is carried out.  The police initially maintained a presence at the Police Station but this ceased in 2012.  The offices, museum and library are open Monday to Friday from 9 am – 1 pm.

Council Library 

The library was established in the summer of 2013 as a Community resource making good use of the room formerly occupied by the Police.  The library is well-stocked and the idea is that people bring in books and then take out different books and make a small donation for doing so.  The donations will then be added on a yearly basis to the grants given to local organisations to boost their funds.
