Think fog was coming down when a Helicopter landed on the field by station road in Tredegar this morning. Very close to the road !

Watch the people get out around the 1:24 mark.

5 minutes later, the visibility was down to under 100 yards....

Can you land where you want these days ?

So on black Friday, a black helicopter lands in Tredegar, containing men in black suits, carrying black suitcases.

Sir Terry Matthews.
No idea why he landed up there , maybe the weather as suggested, its common for that helicopter to fly over, 10 -11 am heading north east, then 4-5pm heading south west.
i worked at coldra woods near his heli-pad it was a similar model.

Don't quote me.

I'm sorry, but this is obviously a weather balloon, or perhaps a cloud formation



Silly Billy's




Well, did you ever wake up, with them bullfrogs on your mind?

So if I read this right...

On Black Friday, a black helicopter lands in Tredegar, carrying Mulder, Scully and Sir Terry Mathews, posing as a new Taxi firm, under cover of a weather balloon and cloud formation, to meet Gordon Brown, for a drug deal, where the funds will be funneled into social housing.

Damn!... I oughta work for the Gazette.

not like the gwent gazette is worth reading anymore.
Anyway, who told you they were taking measurements ?, i only ask so i can ask the company would they like to employ local workers.

New company started up buy some Tredegar residents, sadly the shop had to be located in Ebbw Vale due to the silly charges by TTC. i wont advertise it yet i'll post a pic to the web-team see if they will class it as a Tredegar business.

Will do !!!

First light in the morning i'll be taking a pic, and get a comment from one of the co founders, i'll be around town soon posting leaflets through doors i'll send in pics of that too.

Thanks !

P.S. i am not involved in the business, just its nice to support as it was always based in Tredegar and needed a drop in center that was not made availible here in town.
(take note TTC) .

Hi philj78,

TTC do not get any income from business rates, it all goes to Blaenau Gwent Council. All the income that Tredegar Town Council receives is from the Council Tax Payeys of the town.

Will be great to get the info on the new company :o)

The Icommunity service is available for all business's / groups in the town to have their own web-site for free, could be usefull for them (please see http://www.tredegar.co.uk/icommunity )

Rgds,

Pierre
