That is me on the left. The guy on the right is Mike the Butcher. I have been involved with this boxing club on and off for 17 years. We have just started decorating a new gym. I plan to interview some of the gym members over the coming weeks to find out their thoughts on our new home.
Over 80,000 people have viewed GLC’s Fresh Prince of Cwmbran video on you tube. If you enjoyed that you will love this clip. A Cwmbran family have made their own video tribute to Newport’s top rappers.
Cwmbran is my home and where I work.
In this blog I want to show off the characters and the places that make it a great place to live and work. Cwmbran is a town where everyone seems to know everyone. That is why I love the place so much.
I have lived here for 29 out of the last 34 years. Those five years were spent in London but the offer of a job back here in south Wales was too good to refuse. My girlfriend (now my wife) moved with me and we have never looked back.
I have lived in Ty-Canol, Pontnewydd, Greenmeadow and now call Fairwater my home.
If you know someone I should speak to or a place I should visit please let me know.
