Quite a bit going on this month. Podium Therapies have relocated to Ton and artist Jon Pountney’s three month residency at Castell Coch ended with an exhibition of his work.
First off, we celebrated our fourth birthday. Go us!
Flickr user Gareth posted this aerial photo from his helicopter ride.
Lovely summery photo from An Young. Did you know the cafe is now called “Caffe Lucca”?

Podium Therapies had their open day. You can now get a sports massage or holistic therapy a short walk down Ironbridge Road.

I found this cute Castell Coch animation by Cardiff based illustrator Sam Rees.
As always, we end with some beautiful scenery captured by Gale Jolly.
