To Tredegar Newsletter Members:
Welcome to the first Tredegar newsletter !!
We have received over 25'000 visits to the Tredegar home
page over the last five years, and we are now going to publish a newsletter hopefully
every quarter, or when every we can justify a major update to the www.tredegar.co.uk site.
UP AND COMING EVENTS IN TREDEGAR
If you want to advertise, please e-mail the webmaster here.
Tredegar recently appeared in a short ten-minute documentary show on BBC Choice Wales.
The Series called "From the Valleys" looks at towns in South Wales. The program
shows the town as it is today, and its a must if you want to see what the people of
Tredegar are up to in the twenty-first century!
You can now get hold of your own copy of "From The Valleys" on CD-ROM. To
order your copy, just send an e-mail to the webmaster. It is recommended that when you
receive your CD, that you copy the video file to your hard disk and play it back from
there to get the best payback quality. We have now also go CD Video of the new by-pass.
The cost to you will be nothing, but please be patient as it may take a few weeks to
get to you (longer if you live outside the UK...) -
Sorry, the CD-ROM is longer available.
We are completely updating the gallery section of the website, but see below for some
of the latest pictures :-)
||This used to be the entrance to the bus station, but now it's the only way
into the Car park. Strange as it may sound, some of the bus companies have stopped using
this route because they are having problem navigating the tunnel. Strange .....
||Nope, it's not a error,, this is the Tredegar business park ! It is to be
found on the old NCB site, just below the main shopping center.
||.....and this is what is (currently) on it. If you ask me this could be
transformed into a cinema or bowling place. Anybody interested at looking at this or any
other idea, e-mail me here.
||This was where sirhowy bridge used to be. We will have a photo of the same
location 50 years ago in the history section in the next few weeks.
||This is where the open air bath's were located, in the town park. They
were knocked down in the 80's to be replaced by what seams a skate area (?), and a field.
||..and she's still there :-)
||New gates have been placed in the center of town to stop vandalism.
||The other gates. See "Tredegar Iron & Coal Company" running
along the top.
||Where did those clouds come from....
We have extensively updated this section, as we thought the existing section left a lot
to be desired. The new section will be available for the next newsletter.
We have now moved the web-site to a new server, and all links to old pages (e.g. http://users.globalnet.co.uk/~petet) will
be shut down in the next few weeks, so please make sure that your bookmark for the site is
up to date.
Do you own a shop, business, or are a member of a club in Tredegar ? If so then you can
get your own web-page set up for no cost at all. Simply e-mail the webmaster, and before
you know it you will be up and running. Your web address will be something like www.tredegar.co.uk/yournamegoeshere.
We have already started work on the Tredegar Bows Club site. More to
Headley's the barber shop at the top of town is now on-line. Go to http://www./tredegar.co.uk/barbers-bench
What else do you want?
If you think the web-site can be improved in anyway, please contact us by sending
e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Bye for now (or is it ta tar
