It had been a long wait
Last November, on a dull and otherwise cheerless morning, the new shopping centre in Newport South Wales opened with a new bus station at its rear. The people of Newport had been sceptical for years about this promised development but here it was - and better than all expectations. Quite a crowd gathered and waited before surging in and it has been busy ever since, despite being an apostrophe-free zone: Friars Walk. I will reveal its other attractions in future posts.
