Yet again Penarth has been listed by the Sunday Times as one of the top ten best places to live in Wales.
In its annual re-shuffle of town-names, the Sunday Times has picked out Mumbles for the place of honour at the very top of its list .
Unaccountably Cowbridge – which was top of the pile last year – doesn’t rate a mention this year and isn’t included in the ever-more-bizarre list for 2018. Quite what the Vale market town has done to deserve this fall-from-grace is not explained.
The paper claims to have drawn on factors like “community spirit”, “shops” and even “broadband speed” in coming to its final adjudication.
The only other town in the Vale of Glamorgan listed in the top ten is Colwinston.
Other towns in the list – besides Penarth – are Abergavenny, Monmouth , Abersoch, Presteigne , Laugharne, St David’s and Saundersfoot.
