 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
 local economic growth. For example, each month we
 include a selection of EGO Tokens that will give you
 access  to  a  range  of  offers  in  local  businesses  and
 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.

 Believe it or not this month’s edition is our 50th. How time flies when   This month I’m particularly excited
 you’re having fun?! I’ve kept a few copies of every edition and lining   by the prospect of the new stir-fry
 them up alongside each other does make great viewing, especially as   takeaway  ‘Wok  2  Eat’.  Take-away
 we’ve only ever repeated two of our cover stars during that time and   food that is healthy, tasty and
 there’s no sign of us ever running out! Speaking of cover stars, I think   freshly cooked using ingredients
 it’s very fitting to be featuring Gwawr on the cover during this landmark   you’ve chosen yourself - what’s
 month as she epitomises the home-grown talent that this area has   not  to  like?!  I  also  can’t  believe
 been consistently producing for decades. Elsewhere, I took my first   we’ve hit 50 issues! Here’s to
 ever steps into a) a furniture store and b) a Haberdashery and I hope   50 more. If you want to discuss
 you enjoy our features on Franks for Furniture and Jennifer Davey   contributing  to  the  magazine  then
 who  runs  Aberdashery.  My  visits  to  these  two  fantastic  businesses   please get in touch via  paddy@
 perhaps demonstrate how we always hoped the EGO® would work:   aberystwythego.co.uk
 i.e these are two businesses I’d never even have thought of entering   8 Market Street, Aberystwyth SY23 1DL • 01970 358 591
 due to pre-conceived ideas that they didn’t apply to me, yet I’m now
 in negotiations for a new mattress and two hand-made Christmas   Beautiful fabrics, haberdashery
 stockings! If you would like to be involved in the EGO® as either a
 contributor, an advertiser or one of our outlets, please drop Huw a line   & lots more
