On July 5th we went up to Trevethin to open a new cafe! :)
From the council press release:
A brand new café enterprise has established in Trevethin. Luan Haynes from Cwmbran has opened Coopers in the Bron Afon enterprise premises and has already built up a strong local following. Serving teas, coffees and breakfasts, Luan’s business should prove to be a great addition to the already established businesses in Trevethin shopping centre. Supported by Torfaen Country Borough Council Economy and Enterprise and Communities First Luan is looking to embed the business within the local community there.
Richard Murphy Communities First Business Development officer “Luan’s whole focus has been to get to know the local community and people in Trevethin and to provide a service there. This is a venture which is very much community based and the local people and shopkeepers have welcomed Luan to the area and this is a business which hopefully will thrive in the coming months and years. Once again, great to be involved with a person with so much drive, enthusiasm and passion to succeed”
Executive member for communities, housing and anti-poverty, Councillor David Daniels said: “It is great to see yet another business launch in the enterprise suites in Trevethin, working in partnership with the council. Torfaen Economy and Enterprise and Communities First teams both do a fantastic job in supporting those enterprising residents, looking to turn an idea into reality."
