Traders in Pontypool town centre have painted the walk ways in Riverside car park in order to improve the welcome visitors to receive to the town.
Volunteers from Curves, Osbourne Lodge Nursery, Belle Dame Nails, Jetaways and Jenny Healey Photography came together to litter pick, and repaint the walk ways and lift area.
They were supported by the council who facilitated the activity, and the council’s contractor GKR Maintenance who supervised the activity and supplied the materials and personal protective equipment free of charge.
Cerys Hopkins from Curves on Osbourne Road organised the event. She said: “As Pontypool traders we are proud of the town and want people to have a good first impression when they step out of the car park.
“We have recently formed a new traders group and hope to do more of this sort of activity in the future and I would urge all traders in the town to get in touch and get involved.”
Councillor John Cunningham, executive member for neighbourhood services, said: “This is a great example of community spirit. While we cleanse and maintain the car park, unfortunately we don’t have the resources to carry out this sort of work outside of our planned schedules. I would like to thank Cerys and everyone who volunteered their time to help paint the car park for the benefit of the town.”
