‘Hair today – Gone tomorrow’ – Ashmole Accounts Assistant Shaves off all his hair and beard for charity

Published

on

Ashmole & Co Accounts Assistant, Christopher Pollington, is unrecognisable after shaving off ALL the hair on his head, including his beard, to raise funds for a charity close to his heart during these difficult times.

Based in the firm’s Llandovery office, Christopher has had a full beard for five years.  His partner has never seen him without a beard and his children took some persuading to let him shave his hair off! Ashmole & Co clients would not know him any other way as he started with the firm almost a year ago.

Christopher worked in the licence trade from the age of 13 and knows only to well the highs and lows of running and working in the industry. For the 10 years before he joined Ashmole & Co he successfully ran the Royal Oak Inn in Rhandirmwyn. As a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic all pubs and bars have had to close for the foreseeable future. Christopher has chosen to raise money for the Licensed Trade Charity which helps pubs, bars and brewery people when they are in need of help. They support hundreds of people facing a crisis with practical, emotional and financial support each year. For more information on the charity visit: www.licensedtradecharity.org.uk

Christopher said, “The thought of shaving off my full head of hair, aswell as my beard, was terrifying. My nan was the only person that was pleased as she said she would be able to see her grandson’s face again! There’s a lot of charities struggling to raise funds during these difficult times, and I wanted to show my support for a charity that is close to my heart. Thank you to everyone who has supported me.”

Ashmole & Co Partner in the Llandovery office, Ceri Llwyd, said, “Christopher joined our team last June and we’ve always known him as having a well-kept full head of hair and beard. When clients return to regularly visiting our office they are going to have quite a shock with his transformation. As a local, rural, firm Ashmole & Co has always welcomed any opportunity to support causes that make a difference to those in the rural community. We fully support Christopher and congratulate him on his efforts to help raise funds for those in the licensed trade.”

Llandeilo gas works to begin say Wales & West Utilities

Published

on

WALES & West Utilities will shortly begin work to upgrade gas pipes in Llandeilo.

Wales & West Utilities has liaised with Carmarthenshire County Council to plan the work and it has been agreed that work will commence after the town has celebrated the Festival of Senses.

The £123,000 investment scheme, which is essential to keep the gas flowing safely to heat and power local homes and businesses, will begin in New Road on 21 November. This section of work will be complete before Christmas and Wales & West Utilities will return to the town next year to undertake further work in the Crescent Road area. Barring any engineering difficulties, work in the town will be complete by the end of February next year.

Wales & West Utilities Adam Smith is managing this gas pipe upgrade work. He said: “Working with the Council, we have planned this work to accommodate the needs of the town.

“While most of the gas network is underground and out of sight, it plays a central role in the daily lives of people across Llandeilo. Whether it’s heating your home, making the family dinner or having a hot bath, we understand how important it is for your gas supply to be safe and reliable and there when you need it.

“We know that working in areas like this is not ideal, but it really is essential to make sure we keep the gas flowing to homes and businesses in the area, and to make sure the gas network is fit for the future. We’ll have a team of gas engineers on site throughout the project to make sure our work is completed as safely and as quickly as possible while keeping disruption to a minimum.

“This work is essential to keep the gas flowing to local homes and businesses today, and to make sure the gas network is ready to transport hydrogen and biomethane, so we can all play our part in a green future.”

Our Customer Service Team is ready to take your call if you have any questions about our work. You can contact them on freephone 0800 912 2999.

Alternatively, you can contact us on Twitter @WWUtilities or Facebook.com/WWUtilities.
