Gary said:

I needed to focus on just one shop so I choose Blackwood and closed in Newport. I like the town and the people here are really nice and very friendly which makes a difference to how you spend your day.

Mr Mobile supports the Armed Forces & Emergency Services by offering serving personnel a discount.
