Fully restored, the Public Hall has a fully functioning stage and cinema screen and is protected as a Grade 2 listed building.

The continuous built up area which includes the villages of Cross Hands, GorslasCefneithin and Pen-y-groes had a population of 5,717 in 2011.[

Cross hands is a growing residential and employment area and includes the established Cross Hands Food Park to the south west of the A48. A new business park, the Cross Hands Business Park, is being developed to the northeast of the A48 which the local authority hopes will create 1,000 jobs.
