Advertising feature a huge success!

A double-page advertising spread paid for and celebrating local independent businesses has been published in this week’s Cambrian News. Over forty businesses participated, and demand for space was so great that several were disappointed. In addition to advertisements supporting Cadw Calon Aberystwyth the feature takes readers on a ‘virtual walk’ down Great Darkgate Street, along Chalybeate Street and up Queen Street, painting a vivid mental image of the extent of the new development plans.

      I agree, I think Aberystwyth definitely needs more things for young people to do, although I’m sure that the novelty of trailing round Debenhams would wear off pretty quickly. Also, it’s worth pointing out that there were never any plans for a multi-screen cinema in the first place – neither the original Masterplan or the revised plans that were recently abandoned included a multi-screen cinema. Now that the plans which threatened to compulsorily purchase many homes and businesses in the Queen Street/ Chalybeate Street area have been deemed unworkable by the Welsh Assembly Government there is a chance that the original Masterplan (which did indeed include Debenhams) might once again be seen as a good example of how the site could be used. Thanks for your comment.
