How pip started.

We have been asked this week What made you start this group up. So here is the Answer.

In 2014 Newport Council decided to stop the buses through the main street in Pillgwenly (known as Pill) 2 residents decided to start a petition , while collecting the signatures to get the buses going again they noticed the amount of litter on streets. They decided that something should be done . This is how the group was formed. Pip Supporting the homeless was started November 2018. Big thanks to all the volunteers old and new.

over 50s event.

Great event again this year . Met lots of lovely people who came to our stand and all gave positive feedback. Also spoke to lots of people from a wide variety of groups and businesses who are doing great work in our city πŸ’š
