A YOUNG businesswoman has just scooped her first award after trading for as little as 2 years. 23-year-old Kimberley Davies is the owner of Serenity Health and Beauty Salon, on William Street in Cardigan.
Recently nominated by her bridal clients for her outstanding service and close attention to detail, Kimberley attended the awards ceremony of the Welsh National Wedding Awards at Brangwyn Hall, Swansea on Sunday evening (Nov 22) where she won the Best New Wedding Business Award for Region 4 (Powys and Ceredigion).
Speaking of the achievement on Facebook, Kimberley said: ‘Thank you to all of my wonderful brides and clients for nominating and supporting me in business over the last 2 years! Tonight I was presented with Best New Wedding Business award and I couldn’t be happier!’
Speaking later in the week, Kimberley told the Herald: “I never thought starting off a brand new make up and beauty business nearly 2 years ago at the age of 21 would result in winning the Welsh National Wedding Awards 2015 for Best New Wedding Business in my region. I’m absolutely thrilled that the work I do for bridal clientele has been recognised and I love nothing more than making each bride’s day individually special! Thank you so much to my lovely brides who voted and continue to support the business!”

Improvements required at five takeaway premises in Ceredigion
PROPRIETORS of five takeaways in Ceredigion have been warned that their businesses may face closure if they fail to take reasonable measures to provide or require the use of personal protective equipment and face coverings by persons working on their premises.
Premises Improvement Notices have been served on the persons responsible for these takeway premises in Ceredigion:
– Cardigan Arms Fish & Chip Shop, Cardigan
– Express Café, Aberystwyth
– Domino’s, Aberystwyth
– Hot Dumplings, Aberystwyth
– and Star Fried Chicken and Pizza, Aberystwyth
The improvement notices require the businesses to ‘provide or require the use of personal protective equipment and face coverings by persons working on the premises’ and warn that failure to comply with the notices can result in a premises closure notice being issued. The premises were issued with the notices following coordinated inspections by Dyfed-Powys Police and the Public Protection Team at Ceredigion County Council over the weekend.
Businesses should ensure that they are aware of the requirements under the Regulations for individuals to wear face coverings in indoor public areas, and also for regulated premises to take all reasonable measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus, such as providing and requiring the use of face coverings. Whilst face shields do offer some protection for the user against transmission of coronavirus, they are not considered to be ‘face coverings’ as they merely shield rather than actually cover the mouth and nose.
The Public Protection Team will continue to carry out unannounced inspections of premises and the non-compliant businesses may be issued with premises improvement or closure notices.
Information for businesses is available on the Council’s website: Supporting Ceredigion’s Economy.
Any business who is unsure of their responsibilities in relation to face coverings is urged to check the Welsh Government website.
Any business that requires further information or guidance can contact the Council’s Public Protection Team on 01545 570881 or email email@example.com.
Closure notice issued to a takeaway premise in Aberystwyth
A TAKEAWAY premise in Aberystwyth has been closed after it failed to comply with a premises improvement notice.
A closure notice has been served on G-One, North Parade, Aberystwyth by Ceredigion County Council’s Public Protection Officers due to non-compliance with the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (No. 4) (Wales) Regulations 2020.
The business was required last month to “provide or require the use of personal protective equipment and face coverings by persons working on the premises”. However, officers witnessed staff failing to wear face coverings on several occasions in breach of the requirements.
Ceredigion County Council’s Public Protection Team will continue to take action against businesses who fail to comply with the coronavirus restrictions. Whilst non-compliant businesses will usually receive advice and guidance, serious or persistent breaches will be dealt with by means of our closure powers, fixed penalty notices or prosecution.
The takeaway must close until December 21, 2020, and the full closure notice can be found on Ceredigion County Council’s website, under Improvement and Closure Notices: www.ceredigion.gov.uk/resident/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-improvement-closure-and-direction-notices/
Information for businesses is available on the Council’s website: www.ceredigion.gov.uk/business/covid-19-supporting-ceredigion-s-economy/
Any business who is unsure of their responsibilities is urged to check the Welsh Government’s website: https://gov.wales/taking-all-reasonable-measures-minimise-risk-exposure-coronavirus-workplaces-and-premises-open
Any business that requires further information or guidance can contact the council’s Licensing Team at 01545 570881 or firstname.lastname@example.org
