Ward Walk 24th February 2015

Another good ward walk this morning covering the lower half of the ward then the upper part via Harpers Road, not many issues Abersychan end today, but enjoyed calling in for a coffee and a visit to The Barber Shop to say hello.

Pleased to see the trees being cut back opposite Cleaves Terrace, this I asked for a few months ago, again after issues with unstable trees.

Called in to Abersychan Post Office and then walked Ffrwd Road and onto Harpers Road to Garndiffaith.

On my rounds I called in to have a chat with Nicola Davies-House the proprietor of The Head Gardener a local hairdresser located on Stanley Road Garndiffaith, which has been opened since 1985.


The Head Gardener is one of several hairdressers in the ward and offers a competitive service within comfortable surroundings, prices range from £6 for dry cuts to foils from £28.

Whist there I had great pleasure in meeting ward resident, Betty who was also in the shop.

The Head Gardener is a unisex salon and can be found on Facebook, late opening is also available.

Nicola can be contacted on 01495 774748 for appointments.


Walking though Garndiffaith I picked up a few issues from residents before calling in at Albert General Stores at Talywain for a chat, where I picked up another issue from a passer-by.

Tomorrow I’m meeting a colleague at Blaenafon  to catch up at Coffi 1860, an independent coffee shop  before looking about the town, so will have to forfeit my ward walk.

I will be available though via Facebook, Twitter or mobile if you have any outstanding issues.
