|Community shareholders rally to buy old police station and court.
Cardigan’s police station and court closed in 2012 and the buildings, quite stately and well made, went on sale. The buildings back onto the area of town owned by the community. The shareholders decided to launch an appeal for funds to buy these iconic buildings, another 200 shareholders joined the group and beat off the rivals with the winning bid. Now the plan is to make them centres for social care organisations of all kinds, voluntary and statutory together in one place. The buildings have evolved from a punitive to a caring role, from state to community ownership.
