old_cenetaph This picture is of the original war memorial which was erected in Caetwmpyn Park in 1936.  However in recent years it became a constant target for mindless vandal’s graffiti and defacement.

In 1995 it was donated to the St.Fagans-Musem of Welsh Life near Cardiff, and was rededicated by the Most Reverend-Alwyn Rice Jones-Archbishop of Wales on October 19th 1996.

“It stands as a memorial to all those men and women of Wales who gave their lives for their county”

    I am researching the men commemorated on the Newbridge War Memorial in conjunction with the National History Museum at St Fagans and the British Legion. This project is currently focused on the WW1 casualties.

    If anyone has a relative commemorated on the memorial I’d love to hear from you. If you have any family stories, photos, medals, death pennies etc it would be great to have photos of them to add to the story.

    Please take a look at the website and use the ‘Can You Help?’ link if you have anything which you’d like to contribute to the site.

    Thanks to a very kind relation, I have been able to add photographs of the Death Plaque, British War & Victory medals and the Newbridge Medallion for Alfred Prosser Workman

    Alfred and his brother Edward Workman, who also died in the Great War were living at 6 Golden Grove in the 1911 Census. In the years following the war their parents, William and Louisa moved to 7 Golden Grove

    Any information on any of the men on the memorial would be much appreciated.

I've seen some lazy parking through Blackwood but this is on another level. Nothing to do with the ambulance behind it, it took a passing police car with 2 officers speaking to the person in the passenger seat to get the driver out of Peter Alan and move it. These people should be booked 😠😠😠 ... See MoreSee Less

Really disappointed with the neglect and deterioration of Pontlottyn. I'm all for preserving nature but when the overhanging trees and dangerous wall opposite Waterloo Terrace force you onto a dangerous road, it's rediculous. The weeds are taking over between the bottom of Edmund st right across to Greenfield St. That's just 1 tiny section. I'd love to know why North of Newtredegar is ignored and neglected . Our local councillor is blind to these to lems and has does nothing. ... See MoreSee Less

Throughout June we’ve been posting about the dangers and consequences of drink/drug driving.

Last Saturday, our officers in Blackwood responded to reports of a possible drink driver in the area. It didn’t take long to find the car, which was being driven around with a flat tyre.

Officers stopped the driver and he was arrested when he failed a breath test BUT WAIT FOR IT……. He was just 17 years old and only passed his driving test a few months before! He even had a can of lager with him! #unbelievable #yourenicked
