If there are any residents looking to become contributors to the content on the website then we would love to hear from you.
New information has been received about known rouge trader Adam Mage, of Ak building and landscapes LTD fame.
He is now trading under the company name Heritage also. Please see the the main post for further information.
It has become apparent that there is a rogue trader operating from a Parc Derwen address called Adam Madge, company director of AK Building and Landscaping LTD and now also a new company called Heritage.
We have learned that there are several clients of his either with unfinished/poor quality standards of work and/or owed money.
If you have been affected by this individual then please use the contact us form as we are keen to collate as much information as possible about this particular company/individual.
We currently have a list of people that are owed money with varying reasons as to why that is the case. Some through terrible workmanship, others through unfinished work and even money taken with no work carried out at all.
So we recommend that you DO NOT use this trader at all for any work.
Further information will be posted here in due course including company details listed on companies house including current director(s) names, also links to Facebook business pages so you can identify the correct company to avoid.

Both the original Facebook business page and the newer one have now been deactivated due to a spate of reviews slating the company and Adams actions.
Several messages have also been received with people experiencing the same poor workmanship which is becoming a common occurrence and also people paying large amounts of money upfront for no work to be done at all.
It has also been noted that some people that have used AK building and landscaping LTD are having to pay more qualified traders to come in behind him to make his work safe, costing more to the client.
It is now understood that Adam Madge has created a new company name called Heritage that he uses to trade in the Rhondda valleys and surrounding areas. See below for the flyer to watch out for:
We are in an unprecedented situation and our everyday lives are going to be disrupted for many months. Many of us including the over 70s and those with underlying health conditions have been asked to self isolate for up to 12 weeks. Those with symptoms have been asked that their entire household should self isolate for 14 days.
It’s more important than ever that we work together as a community to look out for and assist those who are self isolating particularly those who don’t have friends or family nearby that they can rely on.
There are many ways we can help, maybe collecting a prescription, picking up shopping, possibly posting a letter or just having a chat on the phone. It could be anything.
Many of our neighbours are ready and willing to lend a hand.
