 So, what’s it all about?
 The EGO® stands for “Economic Growth Opportunity”,
 and that’s exactly what we hope to be for Aberystwyth.
 The  magazine  has  been  created  to  give  exposure
 to everything and everyone in Aberystwyth by
 introducing and reintroducing the people, businesses
 and organisations of the town to one another. We also
 aim to encourage people from outside  Aberystwyth
 to visit the jewel in the Cardigan Bay crown. All this
 is  done  in  a  manner  geared  towards  kick-starting   8 Market Street, Aberystwyth SY23 1DL • 01970 358 591

 include a selection of EGO Tokens that will give you
 access to a range of offers in local businesses and   & lots more
 organisations.  We  hope  that  our  content  will  speak
 for itself and that our ethos will resonate with a lot of
 people in Aberystwyth. So, grab a cuppa and a biscuit
 (purchased in one of the town’s fine shops of course!)
 and let The EGO® introduce or reintroduce you to all
 that’s best about Aberystwyth.
