The brand new community and visitor centre, Hafan yr Afon, which translates to River Haven or Haven on the River is set to officially open on the 10th September 2022. 

The new centre, located on the banks of the River Severn alongside Back Lane car park, forms an attractive gateway to Newtown’s green and blue spaces.

The centre is managed and ran by Open Newtown and features retail space, conference facilities, cafe and much more.

The building will open for a taster menu on the 3rd and 4th September 2022, the same weekend as the Newtown Food Festival which is taking place next to the building. 

The Hafan Yr Afon project has been supported by the Welsh Government, National Lottery Community Fund Wales, Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn Town Council and Powys County Council.

It has been built by local contractor Pave Aways, after a public competitive tender process.
