Aladin’s Cave, Abergele

Ben Hingeley, the racing driver from Abergele

Ben Hingeley, the racing driver from Abergele, was honoured recently by The Welsh Racing Drivers Association who awarded him the 2017 Welsh Young Driver of the Year.

Rob Allender shares this story with us, and says:

“Ben who is only 20, finished 3rd in the 2017 British Formula 3 Championship. WRDA spokesman Robert Allender said ‘Ben has had a fabulous year, and won 4 races which was more than anybody else, except the champion Enaam Ahmed. However, more than that, although he has matured into a tough racer, who is no soft touch, but he still remains a warm and friendly person, which is great credit to his parents Bonner and Julie Hingeley.

“While considering his next step, Ben will be test a variety of powerful cars over the next couple of weeks and this should give some useful pointers as to Ben’s 2018 plans.”

Tlws jewellery shop in Abergele: end of lease

There’s a heartfelt note by Gaenor in the window of the Tlws jewellery shop in Abergele. Her end of lease is in February 2018 and she’s decided not to renew it. But the shop will remain open over Christmas and right up until the end of February, says the note.

This has been a great place to buy locally-based Clogau gold rings and pendants, as well as reasonably-priced silver pendants and gifts.

It’ll be a loss to Abergele when it’s gone and we wish Gaenor all the best. Diolch.

The revamped Pen-y-Bont pub in Abergele is looking dapper

It’s good to see new life has been injected into the old Pen y Bont pub. I haven’t tried the food upstairs yet but I’m looking forward to going back to the Pen for a pint.
