Mynewtown has been warmly welcomed by the business community which has rushed to book advertising space, and its launched attracted a star-studded cast from the local population.
Cllr Joy Jones said: “I am so pleased that we have the opportunity to share in this website as I feel with the advances in technology this is the way many people like to get up to date information. Congratulations to the people behind this site. I feel it will be a great assist to our town.”
Mr. Davies described the expansion into Newtown as “wonderful news for Montgomeryshire” while Sian said she was “delighted” because “I can now keep up to date with what’s happening at home no matter where I am!”
