AFTER reading about Terry Matthews opening a charity shop in Newport, I see we are now being rewarded by the Ryder Cup investment by Oxfam and other charities. Change Commercial Street to Oxfam Boulevard. Newport city councillors should hire a coach and spend the day visiting Cwmbran, Cardiff and Swansea and then say to themselves: “We are the ‘in’ city. We have done a great job in this great city.” I don’t think Terry Matthews will be advertising this shop in the Celtic Manor.
