Jan im from up the road in swansea, cardiff is fantastic at the moment a great upcoming city..think it was voted one of the fasted growing cities in europe recently, what makes you think it is bad? Was there 11 weeks ago was Fab :)
Apart from if you are conected to the building trade i didnt really see much of a nock on effect from the so called recession, employment may have slowed down a little but cant say i noticed that much diffrence in fact retail etc seemed to be better :)
What I noticed when I went back last year was that food and retail shopping prices had dropped. Food used to cost so much less here a few years back but now I think we are on the same par. It is extremely difficult to find full time permanent work in Cardiff and I heard employers are offering more casual or part time work due to the cutbacks they have had to make to keep their businesses running.
My friend was here for a months earlier this year and she was shocked of how expensive it is here now.
We are from pentwyn, and yes it was getting pretty bad. Have you been back recenlty, as it is getting huge, they are building everywhere. You get charged for everything they have now intruduced parking wardens everywhere which are run by the council, and the parking ticket is on average £50 £100 yep I had £100 for parking at sophia gardens while my daughter was inside in a gym competition. Where were you from?
hi welcome to adelaide, we have been here for just over 1 mth and still finding our feet but getting there! enjoy!
I was born in Rumney but have lived all around Cardiff. I know Pentwyn quite well.
I went back for a holiday last year in fact, we were there this time last year. I did certainly notice the changes however, the City and Cardiff Bay was looking good.
Let us know how the job goes, I met someone a couple of years back who was a nurse at the Calvery.
If you need any tips or advice please feel free to ask. I have been here 10 years and trust me you dont lose your accent lol!!! :D
not sure if a lot of people commenting on cardiff have been there recently, but believe me when I say it has changed! having just come from there last week. I have lived there most of my life and it is not what was. I agrre the bay has changed for the better, but social differences are getting greater.
I have been to the hospital to say hello and everyone seem nice and friendly.
Is it Cardiff they filmed Torchwood in? LOL, looks ok on screen but with all that going on underneath the streets, I'm hardly surprised things up top are changing!!! Overrun by those horrible Weevil things I should think....Weevil (Torchwood) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
