A new business in Cardigan is exploring history, while making history
"My name is Eoghan, pronounced 'Owen' and I started Cardigan Walks after arriving in the West Wales town in 2021. I noticed two things; Cardigan and the surrounding landscapes are simply stunning with really special stories and I also noticed most tourists who visit come to walk.As I looked around and explored, I discovered there wasn't a walking tour exploring the rich tapestry of history interwoven amongst the streets and buildings in Cardigan.
So I decided to introduce Cardigan Walks, developing a family-friendly history tour exploring Cardigan town. Another thing I noticed in the area is that there doesn't seem to be many opportunities for young people to gain professional skills leading to meaningful careers. While Cardigan Walks' tours focus on history, I also have the goal to make history by handing Cardigan Walks over to a local charity working with young adults. My vision is to create employment opportunities that expose young adults to aspects of business management they may not otherwise get a chance to experience. By managing Cardigan Walks with the support and guidance of the charity leaders, young people will start developing key professional skills such as communication, teamwork and dive deep into customer service, marketing, logistics, administration, and finance, all while driving home how special a place Cardigan town is! I have big hopes that Cardigan Walks will be the first step in a long and successful career for someone."
