Welcome to Abersychan!
A warm welcome to the latest business to set up shop in the ever popular shopping hub within the Abersychan Ward of Torfaen. Hope’s Pantry specialises in producing a variety of different home-made fudge.
Last night I was honoured to be asked to attend a special tasting event at the shop along with other local business owners and guests.
Some of you will recognise Mrs Jess Hope from her tireless fund raising for her son Lincoln to have a life changing operation (Lincoln’s Legs).
Originally from England, Jess started Hope’s Pantry from her home kitchen, before moving to Wales.
Settling into the ward, Jess decided to share her fantastic culinary skills and take the plunge and open her own shop.
The shop will also stock a range of flapjacks and these will be added to as demand rises.
Abersychan Ward is rapidly being a hotspot for new business start ups and it already offers a wide range of services which makes me extremely proud to represent.
During the past 5 years the ward has seen several new independent shops and businesses open, bucking the trend locally.
I personally wish Jess the best and look forward to visiting regularly I’d also like to thank her for putting her confidence in the Abersychan Ward.
