Mill Street Post Office Closure


Plaid Cymru councillor for Pontypridd Town, Heledd Fychan said

"The Post Office is a vital part of the town, providing crucial services and bringing many people into Pontypridd who then visit other shops and businesses.

"I have been in contact with the Post Office and have received assurances that they are committed to ensuring a Post Office remains in Pontypridd. They are already looking at alternative premises within the town, and are keen to find a temporary solution as quickly as possible before something more permanent can be found.

"I am also saddened by the closure of Dennis Pounder Travel, which will be a loss for Pontypridd."

Park Lane Surgery

Update from Danny Grehan, Plaid Cymru's Tonyrefail East Councillor on difficulties contacting Park Lane Surgery

The biggest complaint on the doorstep during the local election was the fact that it is such an ordeal to get through to the surgery. 


I am glad to say that their present phone contract comes to an end soon, and they will be installing a new system, which will make it easier to get through to the surgery.
