Review of Abergele by Steve on May 31st, 2010
Maybe its just me that sees this but i live in Abergele but am not from there. I avidily read all I can about Abergele and its history when i get chance and Abergele is always described as an old market town going back hundreds of years. I am from the NW of England and remember well the old market and the only reason my mum and dad visited Abergele. Is the lighting flashing yet! So why in Gods name did some moron allow Tesco to close Abergele? Why dont you allocate some land again and open another Market. You cannot tell me the people of Abergele where for letting Tescos replace the old market! The field inside the Gate house at the bottom of Lon Dirion where they camp in the summer would be perfect. Who owns that land? I am sure it could be organized and utilized all year round therefore paying the owner a tidy rent for the year and not just a few weeks in Summer. Who cares whether you fix the traffic lights or get people to occupy the empty shops!! Get the point its a market town without a market. There is a growing trend to move back to market shopping as people are sick of plastic food so come on stop playing Ostriches and smell the coffee on hopefully a new market space.
