Simon Keith's Story October 2019

The amazing true story of Simon Keith


One of our great sponsors Cardiff Boat has had business affected by the recent flooding. All stops and pontoons have been closed awaiting repair or cleaning and made safe. Let's hope Cardiff Council / Cyngor Caerdydd and the relevant authorities are able to sort these quickly and get these businesses running again, for the sake of them and their employees 🙏 Thinking of you Cardiff Boat team ⛴️ 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Bad news yesterday from the Harbour Authority yesterday:
"The inspection has confirmed that all stops have experienced some degree of damage. As such, for safety reasons, until further notice all water bus stops and pontoon systems must remain closed. Some of the stops will require a significant amount of work to make them safe to use"
Please keep fingers crossed for us that it won't be too long - This is the scene at Taffs Mead

Sponsor round up Feb 2020 - GTFM:
January has been super busy from the voices of Valley radio. So busy I can't say I've taken it all in.
But they continue as ever to make the Rhondda aware of all the pressing community issues.
Weather warnings, crashes, A&E issues, have all been announced through Jan, alongside some of the better events and moments happening in the area.

Tune in - 107.9FM / gtfm.co.uk ' GTFM App / Smartspeakers


Lauren’s Tattoo Parlour

This girl has been rammed in Jan, and looks to that form into Feb.
If you are thinking of an inking then get involved. Simply pop on the page and request a booking that's available. Simple to pay a deposit as well.
You won't be disappointed at all.
If your a player and your looking at some ink mention it to Lauren 😉

Rhondda based private tattoo studio. Appointment only - please message privately to book.


Cardiff Boat

Sponsor round up Feb 2020 - Cardiff Boat:
Awkward month for Cardiff Boat with the river not playing ball, But with the return of river flow and the 6 nations, you haven't visited Cardiff if you haven't been on the princess Katherine.shes primed, rested and ready to tour you around Cardiff, the Bay and up to the stadium in style if your watching an event

Wal Goch

Sponsor round up Feb 2020 - Wal Goch:
Been a busy January for the Valley Boys, with the great news that the mens national side qualified for the 2020 Euros, Wal Goch have unleasehed some fanrobilia.
The original fan apparel company, created in Wales, have come up with a few new designs to get Welsh fans excited. Our favourite Baku vision 2020, sounds like a sticker.
Wal Goch have also agreed to be our MOM name for 2020.
We love these guys and if you haven't already get on their sight and sift through.
If you haven't got your scarf, hat, classic T, and hoodie sorted from Wal Goch, then quite frankly, your not ready are you?

Wal Goch is an independent Welsh business with clothing designs created for the Welsh sports fan. �


The Simon Keith Foundation

Sponsor round up Feb 2020 - TSKF:
Looks like Mr Keith has been enjoying his January, taking it easy and reflecting, few award ceremonies, few foundation duties in Miami, looking forward to things ramping up for the rest of the year.
If you haven't heard Simon speak have a Google or check out the videos on the page.

The Simon Keith Foundation provides support to transplant recipients and promotes organ donation.
