I went to Penarth yesterday, hadn’t been there for some time, but I remembered it as a smart little town but I was shocked when I saw how the centre of the town has changed.
Standing in the middle of the shopping area I could count 3 supermarkets, 4 coffee shops and 5 charity shops.
When I walked less than 100 yards “just round the corner” I found another 4 charity shops.
What has happened to what was once such a nice little place to turn it into the Charity Shop capital of south Wales?
Clearing out a few cupboards this weekend uncovered this old photo of the London County Council run “Welsh Class” in HungerfordRoad School, probably around 1963. I wonder where they all are now.
You probably couldn’t call it the Welsh Class now, would infringe some law or other I’m sure.
